Clear story, clear branding

The story your brand conveys is essential for attracting your ideal audience. Donald shares how it’s the clearest branding that gains the most audience attention. It’s not always about having the very best product or service; what matters most is offering your audience a great experience and a transparent brand message through great storytelling.

Caring for the customer

Donald delves into why we need to care about the customer and understand what their pain points are. This is the key to devising stories that truly resonate with your audience. Your story should show your audience how interacting with your brand could help solve their challenges and leave them better off afterwards.
