Story-Tell to Sell: Promote, Engage and Persuade Without Feeling Salesy
AN ENGAGING, INSPIRING AND INTERACTIVE TALK GIVEN BY VANITY FAIR PUBLISHED VISUAL STORYTELLER ELI DAGOSTINO
At Eli Dagostino’s “Story-Tell to Sell: Promote, Engage and Persuade Without Feeling Salesy” talk, creative entrepreneurs are reminded that their unique stories (including the vulnerable, mundane and triumphant) are worthy of recognition, and will leave confident in their stories’ power to convert sales. With Eli’s redefined simplified definition of marketing and a clear set of storytelling next steps, business owners leave free of overwhelm and well on their way to business bliss.
Eli dives deep and explains the many ways to thread engaging and persuasive storytelling into a business; from creative bootstrap marketing approaches to up-leveled e-mail signatures and outgoing voicemail messages, attendees leave equipped with the tools to reach through their computer screens, into the hearts and minds of the people who need them most and leave them drooling for more.
While giving audience members a peek into his story, Eli helps attendees curate their own stories through one-on-one interactive participation. Audience members are guided through the exploration of their own stories and together learn how to bottle up their individual presence, energy, essence, appearance, beliefs, and experiences into cohesive, engaging and persuasive narratives that sell.
Eli Dagostino’s journey has taken him from the beaches of Martha’s Vineyard to the streets of New York City, and his zest for life has been celebrated on the stages of SNL, on the pages of Vanity Fair and in the seats of Carnegie Hall. From child actor, to award-winning and internationally recognized photographer, Eli’s passion for making a positive impact on people’s lives through the power of beautiful creative storytelling is unwavering.
