Shawn Neville's insight:

When free of assumption and distilled from client conversation, the Value Proposition Canvas is useful.  If tied back to a business model understanding, it sums "benefits" plus "because" to highlight why.

The Only Way to Get Important Things Done

"The proper role for your pre-frontal cortex is to decide what behavior you want to change, design the ritual you'll undertake, and then get out of the way. "It is a profoundly erroneous truism that we should cultivate the habit of thinking of what we are doing," the philosopher A.N. Whitehead explained back in 1911. "The precise opposite is the case. Civilization advances by extending the number of operations we can perform without thinking about them.

 

Indeed many great performers aren't even consciously aware that's what they've done. They've built their rituals intuitively."

"It is a profoundly erroneous truism that we should cultivate the habit of thinking of what we are doing" -- this resonates with user experience design -- we talked tonight about the need for the interface to be transparent, in the background, so that it doesn't interfere with whatever you're trying to do.

Karen Dietz's curator insight, December 16, 2012 7:36 PM

This article goes hand-in-hand with another post I curated a few days about about sequencing content.


The author here, Georgina Laidlaw, talks about creating long-term story arcs for your content.


Yes! Great idea! Basically, Laidlaw talks about how a story arc works, and then how to generate content along a story arc over a period of time. Think a long period of time.


She also gives plenty of examples and links to other articles. So there are lots of resources here to dig into.


Laidlaw also mentions how to leverage this kind of content with cross-promotion and spin-offs -- which is different from sequencing stories. Between the two articles I've curated there is lots of food for thought.


As we all get ready for 2013, planning your content around long-term story arcs, along with sequencing your stories will help drive engagement.

Margaret Doyle's curator insight, December 17, 2012 5:45 PM

I've been telling my clients this for a long time, nicely explained here why the long story format works in digital media and why it's important to invest in it. 

Karen Dietz's comment, January 16, 2013 1:15 PM
I agree Margaret! Long form storytelling definitely has a place in the marketing/storytelling mix. My apologies for not responding sooner! I didn't receive a notice about your comment. Have a great day.
