Omar Kattan's insight:

Julie recaps storytelling all the way back from the first painting on caves, through the Gutenburg press, motions pictures and radio as storytelling mediums and how the internet and social impacted the methods in which brands must communicate in a new age.  Brilliant brand storytelling examples and insights.

The Power of Storytelling; What Marketers Can Learn From Casey Neistat and Google

The Power of Storytelling; What Marketers Can Learn From Casey Neistat and Google | Brand Stories |

And, last Saturday morning, before I got up and on with my day, I watched his short film entitled ‘Guthrie Beach Raft’ and it got me thinking about the power of storytelling in marketing.


Yes, successful marketing is all about emotions -- not facts.


There are two videos to view here that make the author's point. The first video is OK -- for whatever reason it didn't really grab me.


But the second video about Google Chrome is a hit! That's because it tells a very engaging story about how someone uses Google's integrated suite of tools. It's brilliant.


Enjoy both of these -- and take these lessons to heart. When creating your content, decide which emotions you want to evoke in your audience and then craft your material to evoke those. 


As the author says, "Sometimes, facts and figures are great, but if you’re really looking to create loyalty and build a relationship with your audience then creating an emotional bond is the way forward."

Make It Count -- Nike Story & Engagement

like me on we shot this in 10 days, just the two of us. Max, my friend in the movie, is a talented filmmaker, he edited thi...


Well this is fun and perfect for a Friday treat! Nike charged these 2 guys to make a video/digital story about its brand. They stepped out of the box and had an adventure. And in the end, they put together this fab video that perfectly expresses the Nike brand!


What a hoot. And a terrific example of engaging your customers in creating brand stories for you. Not only is the end product engaging, but this shows what customers engagement is all about.


Whether these guys are customers or professionals hired to create the video, it's still representative of great customer engagement.


Enjoy watching this short video and have a great weekend!

Storytelling over the centuries has always been exciting - today the media technology brings totally new dimensions to storytelling.

Four Examples of Successful Long-Form Branded Content (Stories)

Four Examples of Successful Long-Form Branded Content (Stories) | Brand Stories |
In a world where audiences consuming media have a fleeting attention span, one would think that long-form branded content wouldn't stand a chance. Wrong.


LOL -- in the nano-second world of today's advertising, this article talks about long-form branded content that is 2-5 minutes long. Too funny!


But the video examples shared are great stories and one is a complete sports back-story that lasts 28 minutes.


And I love the main point of the post:  that when you give a compelling story for someone to view, listen to, or read you can capture and keep their attention.


Of course, that means you need excellent storytelling skills that lead to excellent stories. 


I bet these videos give you great ideas about the biz stories you can tell, and how to craft + share them. Enjoy watching them!
