Chances are you've heard about the power of storytelling in your content, but maybe your confused about what that really means. I mean, how do you tell a story in an email without ending up with a version of War and Peace that nobody wants to read?!
And what about on your sales page, are you supposed to be adding a story to that?
This week on the podcast I am beyond excited to welcome Dani Paige; storyteller extraordinaire and launch copywriter to unpack what this whole storytelling malarkey is all about.
I loved geeking out on all things copywriting with Dani. Here's what we chatted about in this week's episode:
- What is story telling when it comes to your copy?
- Why is it so powerful?
- How can we use this in our course launches?
- Where should we use story telling?
- What are your 3 top tips for story telling in launch copy?
We had a blast and I hope you love this episode as much as I do!

When it comes to your course, aligning your messaging throughout your customer journey can be a challenge.
Often we come up with ideas for lead magnets before we’ve worked out what our course is, and suddenly it’s like we’re having multiple conversations all at once with the same person!
In my copy-coaching work, one of the biggest challenges I see people struggling with is bringing together different pieces of their messaging, and so you can imagine when you add an online course, you’ve added another piece to the puzzle.
So if you struggle to bring your message into alignment, then today’s episode is for you.
Want to get a messaging makeover?

In this episode I'm sharing why you don't need all the bells and whistles of a fancy tech platform to deliver your course!
Often as course creator's it's the tech that keeps us stuck. But it doesn't have to be that way! If you are creating a new course, then I'd love you to get it up and running fast so you can:
a) earn some $$$ and,
b) road test it with real students before making a big investment in a learning platform.
In this episode I'm hoping you'll get curious about delivering your next course as a minimum viable product and seeing if this allows you to be more nimble and responsive in your course creation and launching.
Even if you already have a learning management platform there's good reason to launch with a MVP version of your course first - find out what that reason is (and why I am doing exactly that with my new course).

When it comes to marketing and selling your course, you've probably heard that you need to focus on the outcome or transformation, not the tools you use to achieve this. I know how hard it can be to find your 'transformation' which is why I was so excited to invite Jo Bendle onto the podcast to talk about how she's done exactly this.
Jo has turned the conversation about productivity tools into a movement that that's led by women who are #meantformore.
In this episode I pick her brains on how she made this shift, the impact it's had on her business and the results she's seeing.
So if you're ready to get inspired, find a deeper message and even lead your own movement, then buckle-up, because this is a high vibe, fast talking episode that'll leave you pumped and ready for more.
