Storytelling is ingrained in our DNA because how else would we bring people and each other, together? It sets the ground for the relationships we build which are very important in any trade. However, as effortless as it sounds, tradies don’t put much thought into the potential of a great story to be a deciding factor in earning the customers’ trust.
We welcome you to the first episode of the series, Building Trust and Rapport by Becoming a Great Storyteller. The Story Sales Machine’s Bill Mueller joins us to talk about the importance of storytelling in any industry, specifically in sales, and using email as a powerful storytelling tool. We also cover the art of tying stories into mundane and otherwise routine tasks to create stronger engagements, and ultimately, tradie-customer relationships.
