This post is part of the 📖 Building A Storybrand series.

Today, I am reading new section from a brand new chapter AND CALLS THEM TO ACTION from the book Building a StoryBrand written by Author, Donald Miller.

By reading this book Building a StoryBrand by Donald Miller, you will learn the seven universal story points all humans respond to. The real reason customers make purchases. How to simplify a brand message so people understand and act on it. How to create the most effective messaging for websites, brochures, and social media

Yesterday, I read THE AGREEMENT PLAN section from And Meets A Guide chapter.

Chapter 8


StoryBrand Principle Five: Customers do not take action unless they are challenged to take action.

At this point in our customers’ story, they are excited.

We’ve defined a desire, identified their challenges, empathized with their feelings, established our competency in helping them, and given them a plan.

But they need us to do one more thing: they need us to call them to action.


Bodies at rest tend to stay at rest, and so do customers. Heroes need to be challenged by outside forces.

If our calls to action are soft, they will not be noticed.

The Power of the “Buy Now” Button

Most people think they’re overselling when, in truth, their calls to action fall softer than a whisper.

They can’t read our minds, and they don’t know what we want, even if it seems obvious. We have to invite customers to take a journey with us or they won’t.

Do You Believe in Your Product?

When we try to sell passively, we communicate a lack of belief in our product. When we don’t ask clearly for sale, the customer senses weakness.

Customers are looking for brands that have solutions to their problems.

Key Takeaways

Your customers are bombarded with more than three thousand commercial messages per day, and unless we are bold in our calls to action, we will be ignored.


If our calls to action are soft, they will not be noticed. Make your buy button clear and ask for a sale.
