What is StoryBrand?
Open and Close FAQ

Most marketing is far too confusing, and the person paying the price is your customer. Instead of making them decipher what you do and how you add value, you need to tell them in a way that's simple and clear.

That's where StoryBrand comes in. StoryBrand is a 7-part marketing framework created by Donald Miller. It helps businesses like yours tell a better story and engage your ideal customer.

Joel, how did you learn about StoryBrand?
Open and Close FAQ

It's funny! I get this question a lot.

I was streaming into a Leadership Conference at Bethel Church in Redding, California. Donald Miller was their guest speaker, and he talked about how you can engage the people you lead by telling a better story.

As he broke down the StoryBrand framework, I was hooked. I knew that New Zealand businesses need this!

Then he mentioned that he helps companies use StoryBrand in their marketing, and others could be certified to do the same.

So that's just what I did. I went to Nashville in April 2019 to become New Zealand's first StoryBrand Guide. And the rest is history.
