I'm sure you've all read a variety of biographies by famous individuals. What you don't realize is that your story could be just as powerful and influential as theirs, however you just don't have the means to tell it. Until now. There are 5.9 million Canadian seniors who want to leave a legacy for their family, but they are overwhelmed by the hundreds of photos, documents, and anecdotes that they have accumulated throughout their lives. They don't know how to compile them into a narrative that fully captures their life. Now, my company, Tell Your Story, can help them do just that. Tell Your Story creates written biographies and professionally edited videos after conducting extensive interviews with the individual themselves, as well as their family and friends. We target the children and grandchildren of seniors aged 65+ who want to preserve family memories. The senior population in Canada is rapidly expanding, and it currently makes up 14.8% of the total population, resulting in there being a huge demand for this service. We offer 3 packages for both the biographies and videos, the lowest package for a biography being $1950 and the largest being just under $6000. Videos range in price from $950 to $2500. This allows us to build what will become family treasures, filled with photos, stories straight from the mouths of loved ones, and in the case of videos, old film footage. Tell Your Story operates through a website and advertises on both Facebook and Instagram, as well as at literary and ancestral conferences like Word on the Street and the Ontario Genealogical Conference. We also advertise through family bloggers and their websites and in publications like Family Tree Magazine. Our main competition is Story Terrace, which creates personalized biographies in the United States. There are currently no companies offering this service in Canada, however, and our professional videos and my passion for writing and telling stories distinguish us from our competition. Please join me, and help me tell the stories that will otherwise be lost in history. Together, we can create legacies.
