The Secret to Mastering Product Positioning As You Scale



As a founder, no one can tell the story of your product or company better than you. Even as you scale your business and bring in marketing experts, it's critical for you to continue chanting the battle cry of your business’s “Why” and the problem you solve for clients. If you want to easily create marketing messages that connect with your clients on an emotional level, StoryBrand is an effective tool to help you do this. We'll dive into the high-level components of StoryBrand below.


The StoryBrand framework is a simple, but powerful way to communicate your message in a way that your clients will understand and relate to. It's based on the idea that everyone loves a good story and that your business can be the hero of your own story.


Founder’s Tip: Use video to ensure messaging doesn’t get diluted as you scale

As your business begins to scale and increase revenue, your team will inevitably grow as a result. It’s easy to see your messaging become diluted as new voices join—such as employees, contractors, agencies, etc. A tried and true way to ensure succinctness across the board is by creating videos that capture the essence of your mission.


As the founder(s), creating videos on topics like the company’s creation story, mission statement and product/service offerings, you can capture the voice of your business in a way that will stand the test of time while impacting both team members and prospects.


The StoryBrand framework has seven steps. Using in-depth answers, work your way through each step to complete an entire journey that your clients will take with you—from before they even know about your company to the time you have solved a problem for them. Take control of your business’s brand by sharing your answers and videos with your employees, contractors, vendors, or anyone who is doing work with your customers on behalf of your brand.


  1. Aspirational Identity: Who does your client aspire to be?

  2. Problem: What's the problem that your product or service solves?

  3. Guide: Who is the guide who helps your client solve their problem?

  4. Plan: What's the plan that the guide gives the client?

  5. Call to Action: What do you want the client to do?

  6. Success: What does success look like for the client?

  7. Avoiding Failure: What are the consequences of not taking action?

Now that you have a complete picture laid out for you and your team, are you satisfied with how your clients experience your brand? Does the client find success and satisfaction at the end of their journey with your business? If you aren’t satisfied with your StoryBrand or you find that your clients are not guaranteed success, then rework your StoryBrand until the desired outcome is achieved.
