Today's special guest is Dr. J.J. Peterson of StoryBrand and the Marketing Made Simple Podcast & book.
Dr. JJ Peterson discusses the Story Brand Framework and how sports teams can use it to position themselves as guides in their customers' stories. The framework helps create clear messaging by understanding how story works and using it effectively in marketing. Traditionally, sports teams position themselves as the heroes, but they should instead position their customers as the heroes and themselves as the guides.

The Savannah Bananas are a successful example of a team that has implemented this approach. Dr. Peterson also provides insights on creating effective email newsletters and the importance of providing value to fans.

Dr. J.J. Peterson and I dig into:

-What is StoryBrand and how can teams use it to sell more tickets
-Why is it important to position your fans as the hero?
-Creating social media content using story and how it helps you build a better connection with your fan base
-To better approach than promoting "email newsletters" on your website

Dr. J.J. Peterson wrote the book Marketing Made Simple and is the co-host of the Marketing Made Simple podcast
