· The story is really unique and unexpected. Unexpected content is
one of the three ingredients for a successful viral according to Kevin
Allocca in his great TED talk on what makes videos go viral
on YouTube, a lesson that also works for other forms of content.
· The story is told in the public space, in ‘active communities’. The
streets, Facebook, general media: all the places where the story
happens are easily accessible for most people and designed to
foster discussion. Unlike your own website or Tuesday night
discussion group people come to these places
for stories and are, therefore, more likely
to respond to them.
· The story is about the audience. The most important lesson I took
from Nancy Duarte’s brilliant book Resonate is to treat your
audience as a hero whenever you tell them something. People
should not only be involved and directly addressed, it should be
their story, the thing they are telling, to make it stand out. People
usually listen to themselves.
· The story helps create real life connections, has a physical
component. The most heavily discussed issue in Leuven, I believe
each great story in the digital age needs a physical element to really
turn people from simply interested into highly enthusiastic.

Maybe you don’t need digital media to tell the story.
(yep, I said that.)
