Tell a story

Tell a story

Dry information and stats don’t inspire people to make a change or listen to you.

We don't usually remember facts, figures or statistics. Storytelling is how you make your advice human, relatable and real.

Keep your story short and concise.

Have a good structure

Be logical with your advice and structure it in a way that makes sense. Be sure to have an introduction, a body and a conclusion that highlights the takeaways.

This makes your advice easier to follow and more likely to be retained.

Be respectful

No one likes to be spoken down to and you have your own issues. You’re not perfect either. Remember that whenever you’re giving advice.

Even if your audience disagrees with your advice, they’ll respect you if you respect them first.

Get to the point

Get to the point

Our attention span is only decreasing as time goes on and so those who can get to the point will win in this new attention economy.

Your advice may be amazing, but it will never be heard if you can’t get to the point.

Use your own experience

Use your own experience

It is the best advice you can give. No one has exactly the same story or list of experiences as you, so that’s what makes your advice truly unique.

Inject emotion to your message. Emotion is what can make your advice feel universal.
