Many businesses feel like they have something to prove and position themselves as the hero in their story. But customers aren't looking for another hero, they're looking for a guide! When you position yourself as the guide, showing customers exactly how your product can fix their problems and transform them into the hero, you're destined to win!

This week, J.J. and April unpack the Guide section of the StoryBrand framework and show how you can:

-Use specific language throughout your marketing to position your brand as the guide

-Combine empathy and authority to build trust and engagement

-Craft your marketing tools, like a sales email, through the voice of a guide
