The good news is that visual storytelling isn't a high-cost strategy. Consumers aren't looking for the highest-quality visual content. Consumers want stories told in a visual way that encourage, engage, enlighten and entertain.

streetsmartprof's comment, January 17, 2013 8:10 AM
Some day I would love to hear some stories of your past life as a journalist and how you moved from structure to the flow of story. What I like the most of a good news article, (written by a decent journallist), is the lead. In the B2B world, "having a point" is missed far too often and replaced with fluff words, such as state of the art. In this way, even though both news and B2B content march to a different drummer, as Simon Sinek points out, start with why, the rest will follow. Yet I also firmly belief a good story needs to follow the right flow to connect with and move the listener. On re-invent, no fear, we violently agree, it is a metaphor us engineers use all the time. To re-invent implies we are using things of the past, such as a wheel...
streetsmartprof's comment, January 17, 2013 8:12 AM
Small clarification, on start with why, I do not mean the story starts this way. As Simon points out, the why is in all things one does and helps us build what it is we are trying to achieve.
Karen Dietz's comment, January 17, 2013 4:39 PM
Hi John/Ken -- I love these comments! I was able to move from structure to story flow by taking oral storytelling classes with some of the top folks in the story performance arena. I could myself very lucky to have had those experiences and encourage everyone I can to take some oral storytelling classes. And creating writing classes along the way sure helped too! As you say, lead-ins are so important and so many folks I coach/train struggle with how to open a story. I think my training as a journalist definitely helped there. I totally agree with your points about fluff and starting out with why, and flow. LOL on the re-invent! Great minds think alike :)

Hey folks -- need some new ideas for biz stories? Well here is a whopper of a list. Surely you wil find some gems here that you haven't thought of before.


Not all 96 will work for stories. Like polls, horoscopes, trend watching, and shopping steals. But the outcomes could be stories!


Anyway, as we are all planning our content and biz storytelling for the next year, this is a treasure trove of possibilities for you. 


Have fun exploring and getting inspired!
