PTC Episode 043
Zig Ziglar used great stories in every point he made. He was a wonderful storyteller.
Dave Jackson and I spoke with the Contractor’s Secret Weapon podcast this week on the Podcast Review Show. They hosts told a great story about earning the #1 spot on Google. The story really helped solidify their points.
You don’t need to include constant stories in your podcast. You only need a few memorable stories to make your podcast stronger.
6 ways stories make your podcast powerful.
Transport your listener to other places using stories
- Visual words
- Theater of the mind
Would I enjoy taking a one-hour car ride with this person every week?
- Develop friendships
- Like a one-on-one conversation in a car
Do I know the host by listening to the show?
- Reveal things about yourself

Stories define your character

Let others live vicariously through your stories
