Storytelling to storys€lling


Published on

All our life we've been told stories: as children in school, through books, movies, even in television and radio commercials. As humans we are hardwired for stories – we're conditioned to respond to them. So, as professional marketers, how can we build stories into our messaging to engage a commercial result? How can we develop a story-based culture? What kind of stories work best? In this session you will learn:

- Why storytelling is a useful business tool
- The impact social media brings to storytelling
- How to build memorable storylines
- Some storytelling examples

  • Challenge for us is building a culture of storytellingWhere people
  • People buy what they wantNot necessarily what they needThey demand stories from marketers to help convincethemselves to buy what they already decided they want
  • The ultimate “Word Of Mouth” marketing. Good stories engage. Really good stories spread. And in today's social-media environment, where it's easier than ever to share content, it's important that marketers become skilled in the art of the story. The better the story the more people that will engage with the subject and the better your social media efforts will be. Social media people must be excellent story tellers that can engage and get an audience participate in the story so that it becomes theirs. The more stories you tell, the more you will engage your readers. And if they like your stories, they will want to share them. Like I said, that’s the nature of stories. They call out to be shared. Think multimedia – podcasts, videos, slideshows, photos.
  • In the new world of work, your reputation is the only accepted currency.
