John Hamrick

StoryBrand Guide

Many business owners feel like they waste a lot of money on marketing that doesn’t bring results. But when you clarify your message that addresses your customer’s problem and provides a solution, you invite them into a story that results in increased engagement.
Even if you have the best product in the marketplace, you will lose to a competitor’s inferior product if they communicate more clearly.
Helping business owners clarify their message and grow their business is John’s passion.  Otherwise, you’ll find him pursuing photography, golfing, or playing guitar.
