You’ve Got 3 Precious Seconds to Grab Your Reader’s Attention! How Can You Do It?

The Novice to Advanced Marketing System (NAMS) Founder and CEO, David Perdew, is a master storyteller.

But…he focuses on telling a story with a clear objective. And the objective is always to persuade the reader, viewer or listener to take an action.

By using his 7-step template for telling stories with a point, David’s audiences will follow him almost anywhere when he starts telling a story pulled from his daily life.

And now, in this 20-minute coffee break, you’ll learn how you can hook your audience! (That’s Step #1 by the way.)

Why is the “Hook”, the first of the 7 story-telling steps, so important?

Studies have shown that you have only 3 seconds to grab the audience’s attention. Come and learn how to extend that beyond 3 seconds and…keep them hanging on your every word through an entire story.

Of course, we can’t go through all 7 steps in just 20 minutes, but you will also get a template for all 7 steps that you can use anytime to improve your reader engagement…from start to finish!
