Karen Dietz's curator insight, November 2, 2015 6:38 PM

OK -- here's an article to definitely pay attention to.


Fellow curator and top notch marketer Marty Smith shares his thoughts on the original HBR article "Content Is Crap" that came out Oct. 30: https://hbr.org/2015/10/content-is-crap-and-other-rules-for-marketers


Marty adds his own comments to the original article so you get twice the insights. Yay!


What do I think about both pieces? They are right on. What both posts point out is how the mindset of marketing needs to change to create more engagement and to capitalize on relationships. The steps are laid out for is here. Taking these steps will lead you to a new understanding of storytelling.


As Marty points out, the cure for mediocre content is better storytelling. We need to upgrade to Storytelling 3.0.


So how do you upgrade your business storytelling? Through workshops and practice. BTW -- I still take storytelling workshops with top people in the country! It's an ongoing craft, not a 4 hour class or a how-to book (sorry folks).


Marty's article is important to read. Go dig into it now. Thanks Marty!
