How to Build an Audience w/ Business Storytelling

How to Build an Audience w/ Business Storytelling | Communicating with interest | Scoop.it

"There’s been a fevered interest in the art of storytelling among the business crowd the last few years.

 

The masters and the hacks alike are thumping from every available pulpit that storytelling is the most powerful device on earth in regard to human influence.

 

We are told that story — applied to salesmanship, preaching, advertising, conversation, marketing, songwriting, and blogging — contains the power to deliver the world to the deft storyteller’s door.

 

This is correct. The writer runs this show.

 

But what is a well-told story? How do we know we’re getting down to the true thing?"


Via Gregg Morris, Karen Dietz
Gav Morris's insight:

A good start is to work out the myths. Dispel myths in your story.

Karen Dietz's curator insight, January 15, 8:29 PM

I still periodically come across people in business who think storytelling is only for kids -- and certainly not part of hard-boiled business.


So I love the insights shared here about crafting great stories -- and why to do so. It's a quick but powerful read. And it will definitely get your thinking in order about why storytelling is so important.


Thanks fellow curator Gregg Morris for finding and sharing this gem!

How do you build an audience with story? It’s about media not marketing, baby.... Nice...

Peter Fruhmann's curator insight, January 16, 4:24 AM
Information is … information. The audience will not tune in to watch information. You wouldn’t, I wouldn’t. No one would or will. The audience will only tune in and stay tuned in to watch drama, says David Mamet. This short article by Robert Bruce on the difference between information and 'story' hits the nail on the head
