What is Storybrand?

StoryBrand, created by Donald Miller, simplifies marketing into a seven-part framework. It turns your customer into a story’s hero and your brand into their guide. This approach resonates because it’s easy to understand and shifts focus from the company to the customer’s journey. By aligning marketing with storytelling, StoryBrand ensures your marketing message is not just heard but felt. It’s a customer-centric model that guides you in using effective storytelling in marketing.

The 7 Elements of the Storybrand Framework

1

A Character: The customer, who is the hero of the story.

2

Has a Problem: Identifies the challenge the customer is facing.

3

Meets a Guide: Your brand steps in as a guide to help the hero

4

Who Gives Them a Plan: Offering solutions to the customer’s problem.

5

That Calls Them to Action: Encouraging the customer to engage with your brand.

6

That Helps Them Avoid Failure: Showcasing how your solution prevents negative outcomes.

7

And Ends in a Success: Illustrating the positive results of choosing your solution.

Each element is a step in the journey of positioning the customer as the hero and your brand as the guide to their success.

The Biggest Storybrand DIY Mistakes People Make

(Or why it’s wise to work with a Certified Guide instead of doing your website yourself.)

Too Formulaic

If it’s used too mechanically and strictly the framework can be clunky and distracting. Creativity is crucial.

Too Simple

Clarity is important, but depending on your industry you don’t want to oversimplify and hide your expertise.

Too Fear Based

Stating the problem your client faces can be overdone and come off as an overly scary or manipulative.

Too StoryBrand

Fans of Storybrand can be guilty of our own kind of insider language. It’s important that you speak to your audience in language they understand.

We used the StoryBrand Framework to transform Abilities Rehabilitation’s marketing and brand strategy.

Heather Branscombe, the Clinical Director and Owner of Abilities Neurological Rehabilitation, was a die-hard StoryBrand fan. She had read Don Miller’s book, Building a StoryBrand, and attended his workshop online, but knew she needed a Certified guide to implement the framework.

The Clear & Loud team listened carefully to Heather and her staff, and then crafted a powerful BrandScript for Abilities Rehab. We refreshed their logo and visual branding and produced a video for their website. We restructured their website and re-wrote all the copy so that new patients could more easily find their nearest clinic and better understand what makes Abilities Rehab so special.

Did you notice my call to action?

One of the seven Storybrand elements is a clear “Call to Action” or CTA. Mine has been repeated many times on this page. I want you to “Schedule a Call”. Here’s what happens when you do...

1

I start by asking some questions.

I want to hear about your business or project and what your goals are.

2

I give away knowledge.

I don’t treat these like sales calls. I treat them like a strategy session and give as much advice and help as possible—no strings attached.

3

I define next steps.

If you want to take the next step, I can prepare a simple proposal. There is zero pressure or expectation.
