  • Marketers? Social media specialists? What do you do?
  • Are you content creators? If no, why not? Everyone is constantly creating content and telling stories.
  • Because they were great story tellers
  • Stories have to be based in the reality of your brand – be creative but stay true to your brand promise
  • Fictituous or customer personas
  • Leave them wanting more and wanting to come back to hear or see more
  • Aligns short term attention span on the stories of the day with long term brand narrative
  • Followers know what you sell – why are you trying to sell them? Social media is people having conversations to make decisions
  • The job of brands in SM is not to sell. It is to tell a compelling story that encourages people to action by facilitating conversations between people and giving them things to talk about and guiding the conversations.
  • The best stories are targeted to an audience. What authors do you read and why? Same thing with social media. Who is your audience? What do you need to know about them to tell them the most compelling story?
  • Look at the profiles of your followers/fans and find the patterns. It allows you to find a slant and message that most closely matches what your customers care about.
  • Planned editorial designed to spark conversation – observing the trend of conversation and topics that your fans/followers engage in
  • Answering questions, fielding comments – non-customer service
  • Mirroring audience patterns – includes sharing others content, retweets, etc…
  • You know more about the audience than they know about themselves because you can monitor and collect data. What data and content can you collect and cull on their behalf to help them?
  • Give back what you find out about the audience through the above mix. People on different social networks don’t necessarily know each other. Good storytelling and curation by a brand can bring them together and build community. Communities and interaction encourage brand advocacy.
