According to CBInsights , some of the reasons startups fail are: no market need (42%), ran out of cash (29%), and not the right team (23%).
If you dig a little deeper into the list (there are 20 reasons), you’ll find a couple like this: User-unfriendly product (17%), Product without a business model (17%), Poor Marketing (14%), and Ignoring Customers (14%).
These reasons are why we created the Story Funnel.
Get Your Story Straight Before Launch
Are you frustrated with wasting time and money on unsuccessful launches? Are you struggling to figure out how to tell your brand’s story for maximum impact? Do you routinely get questions like:
- How come we’re not going viral?
- How come our ads are not converting?
- Why is our return rate so high?
- Our LTV is horrible. Why is that?
- How come customers are canceling?
- How much should we spend on digital ads?
- Why do we have to spend so much on creativity?
We hear you. We had the same problems and realized that we had to do something. That something was the Story Funnel.
