Tell a better brand story that creates opportunities for your brand or small business.
Everyone has a story to tell.
Most people think they're telling their story in the right way, but don't realize that they're oversharing instead of positioning their brand as a powerful stand-out with incredible value. This course will teach you the art of brand storytelling that captivates your audience and drives people to action.
The most challenging part of telling your story is uncovering what makes your brand unique and exciting, exploring authentic and engaging ways to share your story, and learning how to monetize your story.
But telling a story, let alone, a good story, isn't easy. First, there's the anxiety of talking about yourself to people you don't know, while sounding confident and comfortable. Then there's remembering the details of your experiences, without sharing secrets or embarrassing moments. And of course, there's sharing a lifetime of information in less than a minute or else you'll lose their attention and sound like you're rambling.
Storytelling is a lot of work.
Building a solid brand requires you to tell your story all of the time, but the worse part is, you have to tell that story to complete strangers on the internet! Your social media pages, your website, your podcast, your online store-- all of the places where you could potentially make money and create opportunities for your brand require you to tell stories about you, your brand and your products or services.
But you don't think you're that great of a storyteller or you're not exactly clear on what story you should be telling.
Your story is the foundation of your brand and how you should market it. It's why you launched your idea, and it supports the grand vision of impact, success and longevity for your brand.
- Your story explains your journey in owning a small business.
- It builds bridges toward the people you want to reach and engage.
- It unlocks opportunities to connect with the right people, organizations, and resources.
A good story immediately shows your value and calls people to action. They'll want to buy, refer, share, support and participate in what you're offering.
If you're not telling your brand story, you're probably missing out on moments that could catapult your brand.

About The Course Teacher,
Shannon Baylor-Henderson is the Chief Content Officer of Content Commanders, a storytelling & strategy company. Shannon has spent years crafting stories as books, articles, blog posts, videos, podcasts, infographics, reports and even events! With her help, her clients have landed their stories and brands in national multimedia outlets and have generated millions of dollars. Storytelling isn't only her job, it's what gets her excited! She loves telling stories and helping people discover and release powerful stories for themselves.
When she's not leading a team that's crafting stories for clients, she's most likely taking a fitness class, singing loudly and off-pitch to R&B music, drinking coffee or buying shoes and handbags. That's, of course, if she's not being a #soccermom to her sons and enjoying a casual date night with her husband.
Here’s what people are saying about the course instructor
Fashion curator & designer
Wow! I had that much value tucked away?
I spoke with Shannon about my brand, and within 30-minutes, she was able to extract & capture the real value I was offering to my brand. I didn't even think about myself in those ways! But everything she extracted was truthful. Most of all, it was powerful.
Artist, wellness practitioner & personal chef
It's more than my experiences. It's my brand!
I'm a jack-of-all-trades. I can do a lot. But I struggle with packaging my story in a way that makes it sound like I'm not "all over the place". I worked with Shannon and discovered how to tell people how multi-talented I am without losing them. Now, people want me to do all the things I'm good at and see it as a real distinction!
I hated talking about myself. Not anymore!
Networking has always been a "no" for me. The idea of being in a room of strangers and having to introduce myself over & over again made me too nervous. Mostly, it's because I didn't know what to say about myself. After working with Shannon, I learned exactly what to say (and a few different ways to say it) so that people wanted to connect with me. Now I never shy away from an opportunity to meet someone new. I know that my story could make them a potential client!
Telling your story powerfully increases your
Your story belongs to you, but it should be shared with almost everyone.
If you're starting/relaunching your brand or you want to increase the reach and results of your brand's work, the trick is to tell your brand's story--correctly.
It doesn't matter if you're a solopreneur or you have a small team, there's a powerful "why" behind your brand and your work. When you share that "why" and you do it in multimedia formats, you display the distinctive value of your brand--even in a competitive space.
Good marketers will charge you $2,000 to $5,000 to understand, consult and deliver a multimedia story about you and your brand. The results could be amazing! However, they usually only offer one version of your story, which you'll get tired of telling and using on your print, digital and social platforms. Why not learn how to tell your own story for much less?
