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.

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.

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.

How Successful Marketers Use Social Proof to Drive Growth - CMSWire

How Successful Marketers Use Social Proof to Drive Growth - CMSWire | Digital Brand Marketing | Scoop.it
A major key to achieving this, especially on the social web, is social proof, the psychological phenomenon whereby people will do something because our peers, who we may regard as better informed, are doing it.

In the battle for consumers’ attention, social proof often provides the stickiness that companies need to make their brands, content and products desirable. 

The best part is, if you play your cards right, it doesn’t even have to take so long to build up your social proof signals. Bear in mind, though, that by itself, social proof isn’t going to do much except make a lot of noise. You still need something to make noise about. Sure, it’s possible to build a certain level of social proof mystique out of thin air, but eventually these efforts will fizzle out.

Let’s take a look at some of the most powerful yet sustainable ways to cultivate social proof – even with limited resources and a relatively unknown brand.
