How to Tell the Tale -What Is A StoryBrand BrandScript

What Is a StoryBrand BrandScript?

A StoryBrand BrandScript is a script that summarizes your key message as an exciting and easily readable story. It’s based on the approach outlined in Donald Miller’s book, Building a StoryBrand. The BrandScript includes seven key elements: character, problem, guide, plan, call to action, success and failure.

What are the seven key elements of a BrandScript?

The seven key elements of a BrandScript are:

  1. Character: The customer or potential customer, who is the hero of the story.
  2. Problem: The primary challenges the customer faces.
  3. Guide: Your brand, which helps the customer find a solution.
  4. Plan: The steps your brand offers to help the customer.
  5. Call to action: The action you want the customer to take.
  6. Success: What success looks like after the customer works with your company.
  7. Failure: The consequences of inaction or choosing a competitor.

How can the StoryBrand framework help my business grow?

By using the proven power of storytelling, the StoryBrand framework fosters meaningful connections with audiences. It helps businesses elevate their brand, attract more clicks on their websites and gain more leads by making their messages more attention-grabbing and memorable. As Donald Miller writes in Building a StoryBrand, “when you confuse, you lose.” Therefore, it’s critical for companies to craft messaging that is simple and engaging. 

One way to engage website viewers or readers is to speak directly to their challenges and show how your company’s products or services can help alleviate those challenges.
