Marketing Storytelling Accelerator

Develop your brand story with confidence and clarity

to engage your target audience and inspire the community

The power of good storytelling
Marketing Storytelling Accelerator

Need an infusion of new clients or wondering how to grow an engaged, passionate following on social media? Storytelling is the key—and your business is an amazing story just waiting to be told.

Storytelling is a powerful tool that your brand can leverage to capture your audience’s attention and loyalty. The Marketing Storytelling Accelerator will lead a small cohort of entrepreneurs like you to develop their brand story with confidence and clarity—to engage their target audience and inspire the community. This class is collaborative—as part of a positive, affirming group environment, each entrepreneur will practice sharing their story verbally with the group as they develop their individual stories.

Entrepreneurs will craft their own stories as they prepare to speak with confidence to promote their brand in a variety of settings. Program sessions will provide an opportunity for practice and coaching in a supportive peer group environment. Following the 6 weekly sessions, each entrepreneur will work with a professional videographer to film a professionally-recorded short video to promote their brand.

The Women’s Business Center at ASSETS houses all of Entrepreneur Training’s programs. It exists to support small business owners who are starting or expanding their businesses. While extra consideration is given to the specific challenges and issues for women entrepreneurs, the programs serve all—women, men, and racial and ethnic minorities.

Join us as we help you craft a compelling brand story for your business!
