THE MAGIC BUTTON!

Avatar Business Audio Theatre February 18, 2021 57 5


Background

Wouldn’t it be amazing to have a button on your website that would create increased engagement, decreased turnover, increased customer loyalty, and decreased cost of sales? This “magic” button would offer users instant gratification, entertainment, and appreciation for your business. It would help them identify with your story, values, and guiding principles.

Click, Hear!

The magic button allows visitors to your site to download the story of your company to their phone. Now they can enjoy actors voicing characters in action-packed scenes of the seminal moments in your company’s history.

The performance comes complete with sound effects and music. The magic button transports listeners to another place and time where your company has to overcome the challenges of a startup, rise above the naysayers, and avoid the pitfalls of expansion.

Edutainment

Sounds too good to be true? It’s true! We have done it, and now we are making this process available to you!

It is like a podcast, with each episode easy to download, truly mobile, page-free and screen-free. It is entertainment on demand. Listeners can easily recall the stories and apply the lessons learned.

Advocacy

Now the “magic button” can add content to your website and offer the world a transparent view of who you are, how you got there, and what you stand for. Now the “Magic Button” can keep listeners engaged in a gripping story with characters they can identify with …and pull for.  And isn’t a good story the best way to give buyers, suppliers, and employees, a good reason to advocate for your company?

Experienced Team

Imagine having your story converted into an audio play by an experienced and awarding-winning playwright, performed by seasoned Hollywood actors, directed and produced by an award-winning director, with sound effects and music created by top composers, and all overseen by a world-class business couple dedicated to preserving your legacy.

That’s the commitment of Business Audio Theatre, the pioneer in fully-casted business storytelling in an audio format.  We will deliver a finished MP3 audiobook that can be used as a podcast or full feature.

The Power of Story

In our 30 years in business, we have found that folks want more than a great product for a great price. They want to know the story behind the brand.  They want to know that they are doing the right thing by patronizing your company. What better way to communicate your principles than through an entertaining story on your site?

Let’s work together to make that “magic button” a reality! Find out more at www.businessaudiotheatre.com.
