Transmedia planning <ul><li>“ In this model, there would be an evolving non-linear brand narrative. </li></ul><ul><li>Different channels could be used to communicate different, self-contained elements of the brand narrative that build to create an larger brand world. Consumers then pull different parts of the story together themselves. </li></ul><ul><li>The beauty of this is that it is designed to generate brand communities… as consumers come together to share elements of the narrative. It has a word of mouth driver built in.” </li></ul>From Talent Imitates, Genius Steals by Faris Yakob:
