OUR STORY

THE PLOT

Stories sell.
So we help you tell the stories your buyers really care about.

The Slingshot Founders came together in 2011 to develop a method for businesses to communicate with their buyers in a meaningful, human way. Our vision was to help companies grow by teaching them how to communicate better. That means giving sales and marketing teams a messaging approach rooted in the last ten years’ research in the field of decision-making psychology. Slingshot Edge helps you create stories that cause action and make your uniqueness clear, enable your sellers to share these stories in a unique and meaningful way, and justify your buyer’s purchase decisions with visual ROI information.

The way we buy is changing. The way we sell needs to catch up.

THE BACKSTORY

Tables, charts, words jiggling on the page. Never-ending monologues. The constant stomach-flipping threat of being asked to read out loud to the class. Swimming in information, notes, books and things to copy down. These are the memories CEO and founder of Slingshot Edge Calum Kilgour has of his school days in Edinburgh, Scotland. He learned—20 years after he left school—that he was dyslexic.

It was fear of appearing stupid that fuelled an unrelenting obsession. An obsession to make it easier (initially for himself) to consume, interpret and remember information. And out of this obsession was born a drive to present ideas and information clearly.

The result is a chunking and choreographing process of visual storytelling that makes it possible for anyone to make their message striking and clear.

THE SCIENCE

We’re living in an age when your buyers can access more information about you and your products than your sellers can. If you want to stand out in this world, it’s not about talking louder than your competitors. It’s about talking smarter. You need to understand your buyers’ world, and be able tell stories about that world that help your buyer connect with you, care about you and choose you. Slingshot Edge’s story building methodology is a three-part process that enables you to grab your buyer’s attention, clearly show your differentiation, and create compelling stories that motivate your buyers to take action to change. The common factor that links all three parts of the process is your buyer’s emotional self – their Chimp Brain.
