Once upon a time, there was a customer marketer who had a product that would be perfect to upsell to their customers. But they knew that the usual tricks just weren’t going to cut it.
Then the customer marketer stumbled across legendary storytelling master, Elliott Rayner, who opened a door into a world of untold possibilities.
The customer marketer learned from Elliott about perspective, passion, and purpose - the three P’s to perfect any marketing story.
Eventually, the customer marketer became a master of the storytelling craft themselves, transforming their cross-selling and upselling efforts, and communicating with their existing customers like never before.
