He also discusses how learning from experts, listening, and meeting people helped him master the art of advertising and marketing. Shane also gives his recommendations for people who are just starting in the industry. Join us and learn how telling stories can turn your business around.

Turning Stories Into a Successful Advertising and Marketing Strategy
Shane got his entrepreneurial spirit from his parents.
His parents taught him not to be afraid of change. If it’s worth doing, you have to bring it all.
In starting his business, all he knew was he had a good offering for the customers and a fantastic team to build it. He pushed through the fear.
Things won’t be perfect in starting a business, and it never will. Just do your best and do it.
Be firm on the result you want—mindset more than skillset.
Shane’s Start with Advertising
Shane opened a franchised retail store, designing and selling out recreational products. He faced many struggles at first.
He had never done advertising and marketing before. Then, after two years, Shane signed up for a one-day seminar, which he considers a pivotal moment in his life.
Shane was introduced to Claude C. Hopkins’s book, My Life in Advertising, which taught him the importance of telling a story in advertising.
He visited his competition, and a lot of them were using scarcity, confusing, and unfair tactics to get the consumers to buy their product.
Shane understood that the best way to help consumers is to teach them how to research and purchase necessary quality products. Prioritize the customers’ best interests.
He created a buyers guide that led many customers to trust him, skyrocketing his sales, and receiving public interest.
How Shane Got Into Online Marketing
An entrepreneur must go to seminars, meet people, and continue to learn.
Shane found out that 50% of his products aren’t selling.
He followed Claude Hopkins’s advice and visited the operation site of his manufacturer. He discovered that the workers are craftsmen and artists.
Shane listened to the workers’ stories—about their love for woodwork and determination. Inspired by this, he bought more products and spread their stories.
You need a story that resonates with people and makes them emotionally involved in the product.
Advertising and Marketing Recommendations for Beginners
Even a beautiful website and branding will be insufficient if you have no experience and desired outcome. After all, result trumps everything.
First phase: Get one customer whom you can use as a case study with transformational results.
Then, the second phase: Do it for more people to prove repeatability.
The third phase: Test your marketing; get more ads out there.
Fourth phase: Measure all your metrics so that you know how much you’re spending. You’ll also know the number of people who came in and bought your products and return on investment
The Benefits of Telling a Story
People want to be part of a story.
Educate, entertain, and tell stories to your customers until they warm up to you and eventually purchase your products.
When people feel connected to a story, people share posts and content about their experiences and interaction with you.
The Power of Social Group Connection
Work on your mindset.
The social group empowers you to do more and gives you more ideas.
Help each other, whether it’s out of cooperative excitement or competitive jealousy. A person’s triumph becomes another’s motivation.
Do you already have a successful business, meaning you’re up, running, and paying your bills with some profit left over?
Are you interested in growing your business, automating/streamlining things, and staying one step ahead of your competition?
Do you want to achieve your goals, get more things done in less time, and double your sales?
? If you can answer YES to all three questions, please reach out to me through Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/daryl.urbanski, and describe your situation, goals, and the best time/way to contact you.[/text_block]
