Tell your story to find yourself and connect with your customers

As a small business owner, it’s all too easy to get focused on the day-to-day activities that keep your business running and growing. But if you don’t pause to look at the bigger picture of what got you where you are, you run the risk of drifting away from what makes your business special.

Thinking through your brand story helps you revisit why you’re in business and realign with your mission. Having a clear story and sharing it can help bring your customers and potential customers along on the ride and give meaning to a transaction.

While it’s important to share the story of your business, it can be hard to know where to start.

5 ways to amplify your brand story:

1. Share your inspiration
Everyone has a reason for starting a business; telling your story can be as simple as sharing what inspired you to go into business in the first place.

2. Be specific
What were the details of your circumstances? How did you grow? Show and tell how you've transformed as a business.

3. Make it personal
Don't shy away from talking in the first person: People want to get to know the person behind the business.

5. Shout it from the rooftops
Use every available channel to tell your story – website, email, newsletters, social, and beyond.
