Start With WHERE, Not WHY In Your Stories

Start With WHERE, Not WHY In Your Stories | Digital Brand Marketing | Scoop.it

My business storytelling colleague Paul Andrew Costello shares great wisdom with us as he challenges the popular notion of "start with WHY", so rampant today in business/business storytelling circles.

Karen Dietz's curator insight, May 21, 12:45 PM

Paul, I couldn't agree more. WHY has it's place, but WHERE is much more powerful. I like your approach much better. 

Folks -- check out Paul's post and let's get unstuck from WHY


Click on the link above to read the entire recent thread from Worldwide Story Work group on Facebook. In the post, participant names are hyperlinked so you can check them out.


Here are the opening paragraphs:

START WITH WHERE, NOT WHY

Paul Andrew Costello The new book, all the rage is, "Start With WHY" (Simon Sinek), but Why? dare I ask?

I want to write a book in reply, titled, Don’t start with WHY, start with WHERE. Because Why assumes there is a reason, whereas more times than not, WHY is a SITUATION, not a reason. Why are police in controversy? Why are young men from minorities being targeted? Why is America still so scared of terrorism? Don't formulate some grand theory about racism or class, just go into those streets and meet those people and you understand that a thousand reasons wont do justice to the situation. 

A why question implies that people have the luxury of an answer, as if the world must always conform to cause and effect logic, or that people always have the freedom to have reasons, rather than acting out of necessity. Most human complexities are compounded by answer-denying situations and once you give an answer, its immediately wrong because there is no one answer. 


Go read the blog post for the entire conversation and what people in the biz story world really think about the notion "Start With Why".

Content Marketing is a Balance of Curation and Creation | Marketing Technology

Content Marketing is a Balance of Curation and Creation | Marketing Technology | Digital Brand Marketing | Scoop.it

Content Marketing is a Balance of Curation and Creation by Douglas Karr on Marketing Technology

 

As we review topics on the Marketing Technology Blog to write about, we research their popularity as well as the content that’s already been published. If we believe we can update the topic and add additional details that are key to the topic – we typically take on the task of writing it ourselves. If we believe we can better illustrate the topic through images, diagrams, screenshots or even video – we’ll also take it on.

A good example of this was responsive design. We read a ton of articles out there – there was no shortage! However, when we identified that we could produce a video that explained it well, an article that pointed to its advantages, and an infographic that we could share that someone else had created… we knew we had a winner.

Our push isn’t just to write, it’s to share the best content we can develop. And if you follow the Marketing Technology Blog on Twitter, Facebook, or anywhere else, you’ll see that we share a ton of content from sites that are very much competing with us for our audience. Why? Because if we can’t do a better job explaining it, why not add value to our audience by sharing the amazing content of others?

Visual storytelling allows you to promote your products without necessarily having to tell people about them. Therefore, your prospects are able to decide for themselves without feeling pressured or sold. Through powerful visual storytelling, businesses are able to evoke emotions, thus, developing a deeper engagement with their audience.

How To Make A Fairy Tale Convert : The Art Of Storytelling | Medium

How To Make A Fairy Tale Convert : The Art Of Storytelling - The Coffeelicious - Medium

"Storytelling is the art of convincing your target audience to empty their pockets for your products and services without actually giving them a sales pitch. What replaces the sales pitch in this campaign is a fairy tale that revolves around their lives and features your products every now and then showcasing how ‘useful’ they are.

 

Great stories always begin with a hook, making a promise to the reader that reading it is going to be worth their time (and money). The first and foremost thing to do post setting the hook, is to make your customer the hero of the story!

 

Then you can walk in all the elves and miscellaneous fancies to keep him hooked; no matter which character you use, ensure that is relatable to the reader and not you.


No matter how long your story is, the one thing that will keep your readers going is the crown prize that is being promised or suggested through the tale. The next step is to just make sure your story has a happy ending that is in sync with what has been filled in by your audience previously via feedbacks, polls and other interactions.

Remember, everyone loves a happily ever after!"

 

Read the full article to find out more about these tips to keep in mind when you tell your own fairy tale:

Don’t be Cruella — just quit the show off!Don’t run on Cinderella’s time — make it last!Don’t be a bore — what if the shoe never got lost?Don’t go haywire — stick to a theme!Don’t add to their grief — make it a happy ending!Don’t make the ending a definite one — keep them wanting more!

rodrick rajive lal's curator insight, May 21, 12:41 AM

I have been using Pinterest for almost a year now, and would recommend it to discerning professionals who would like to keep separate boards for different things. Pinterest also helps drive collaborative work as it is more likely that similar minded people will check out your boards and follow them. Added to this is the fact that as Facebook and Twitter become over used, Pinterest is a fresher platform which promotes newness. The advantage of having different boards is that you can file away different stuff in them. Teachers could have one board for lesson plans, another board for infographics, and yet another one for research materials and resources. I would definitely recommend Pinterest to all professionals who want to try something new and refreshing! Happy Pinning!

South Korean Parents Will Be Required to Have Government-Approved Spyware on Teens’ Smartphones | Roisin Davis | Truthdig.com | Digital Brand Marketing | Scoop.it

It appears that South Korea is playing Orwellian catch-up with its security-obsessed northern neighbor.

Under a new law, parents in South Korea will be required to have government-approved spyware on the smartphones of children below the age of 19. Given that almost 80 percent of South Korean schoolchildren own smartphones, this move is likely to almost eliminate the old question for parents, “Do you know where your children are?”
