Hi, I’m Deborah Ager. A marketing pro turned author turned storytelling marketer pro. I help service-based small businesses and mindful nonprofits use storytelling and marketing to sparkle in the Sea of Blah, so they can increase their reach and income. Results can look like business stories and copy that win you the hearts of your prospects and turns them into customers or a book that expands your reach to a wider audience or help finding the right-for-you marketing strategies to increase your leads and sales.
One story, ten years—and the universities came calling.
In 2003, I founded a nonprofit magazine and used a story + marketing to build it into a known brand in its niche. When Yale called to subscribe to my magazine and get our Tax ID number, I thought the librarian was a scammer or it was a joke. I looked her up, and she really worked at Yale. Next Harvard, then Brown, and the University of Wisconsin…later, we published Pulitzer Prize winners to an international audience.
The good news is that your organization can experience the same success. Now, I help small businesses service providers and nonprofits craft a story that helps them stand out in the Sea of Blah and build believers in their brand.
When you communicate your story, you connect with people. They understand your work and values. They know how you fit into their world—or not. And you can invite those perfect-for-you prospects into your universe and grow your business.
