Publisher's Summary

Despite all the high-tech tools available to salespeople, the most personal method still works best.

Storytelling packs the emotional punch to turn routine presentations into productive relationships. It explains products or services in ways that resonate; it connects people and creates momentum. Stories speak to the part of the brain where decisions are made.

Paul Smith, author of the acclaimed Lead with a Story, shifts his best-selling formula to the sales arena. In Sell with a Story, he identifies the ingredients of the most effective sales stories and reveals how to:

  • Select the right story
  • Craft a compelling and memorable narrative
  • Incorporate challenge, conflict, and resolution
  • Use stories to introduce yourself, build rapport, address objections, add value, bring data to life, create a sense of urgency, and more

Complete with model stories, skill-building exercises, and enlightening examples from Microsoft, Costco, Xerox, Abercrombie & Fitch, Hewlett Packard, and other top companies, this powerful and practical guide gives you the tools you need to turn your experiences into stories that sell.

PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying reference material will be available in your Library section along with the audio.

    Story
    "Very monotone, super long. Needs better concept."

    This book feels like a mission to finish since it is extremely long. The publisher should work on getting a narrator with a better down to earth voice.

    Story
    "Very balanced and motivated book"

    I was a little skeptical going into this book. I've read information before that seemed to suggest replacing sales process with storytelling. I think that's simply not a good idea. This author, explicitly, states that should not be done. Rather, he shows how to augment a sales process with storytelling. And he does it very well. I highly recommend!

    Where does Sell with a Story rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    This is easily the book I can use the most. Someone else said it best when they said they think they need to buy the hard copy also?. Great working piece.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Sell with a Story?

    Every story told was memorable & I will glean something from it.


    Which character – as performed by Paul Smith – was your favorite?

    Pick one.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    I loved learning that I didn't know what a story was.


    Any additional comments?

    This book is actually making me work and has given me a way to do it. I'm excited that I might craft some solid stories.

    "This is definitely in my top 10 favorite books now"

    I think the most important portion of this entire book lies in the last five minutes where all of the other books on this topic are listed. The narration was perfect. The content was exactly what I expected and needed. I recommend this book highly.
