Content Marketing: The Hero's Journey As An Effective Storytelling Plot

Content Marketing: The Hero's Journey As An Effective Storytelling Plot | Entrepreneurial Passion | Scoop.it

James Carson on SmartInsights outlines the value of adopting a story to be more effective in selling your brand, products or services. He specifically points to a specific story plot generally known as the "hero's journey".

This is a story pattern that can be found in tens of popular stories around 

the world.

From Homer's Odissey to Star Wars you can see the same story pattern at work.

You "can use this kind of story arc in a content marketing strategy through switching the protagonist with the customer, and then offer mentorship through the content, and the promise of reward (or quest completion) from the product."

Useful. 8/10

I include this is the ServingExperience collection because a company that exists, follows and thrives upon the ServingExperience way will have a story, and stories that are sincere and true (essential for them to work for a company) and these will also (need to) be truly embraced from CEO to kitchen towel supply supervisor - then and only then does story, brand and reputation float on the high seas of the marketplace.

Marketing Ops is called on to develop strategic and tactical plans on behalf of the marketing department. Being able to tell a story is vitally important to this process. Here is a good infographic about building the "story."

Tenemos muchas historias que contar y lograr que quien las escuche realmente se conecte, no sólo depende del contenido de la historia, sino de la forma cómo la cuentas, aquí algunos pasos del storytelling

Marco Gabrielli's curator insight, August 13, 2013 8:30 AM

Il poster evidenzia gli argomenti chiave, necessari per sviluppare differenti forme di storytelling. I tre elementi principali sono:

1) la definizione di sette popolari tipi di trame (la vittoria sul mostro, diventare ricchissimi, la traversata del deserto, nuova consapevolezza, commedia, tragedia, rinascita) ;

2) l'identificazione di sette tipi di eroi presenti nelle diverse trame (Dracula, Cenerentola, Ulisse, Alice, Aristofane, Macbeth, A Christmas Carol);

3) l'elenco dei principali tipi di intreccio che possono essere utilizzati in una storia efficace (chiamata, sfida, conflitto, crescita, risoluzione).


I principali riferimenti da cui trarre spunto sono i romanzi classici, le opere teatrali e i film. In questa maniera, è possibile ottenere una migliore aderenza tra la realtà che si vuole descrivere o promuovere e la trama della storia.


(Grazie a Robin Good da cui ho attinto l'infografica e il commento).

Why Storytelling Is The Future of Marketing

What is your 'story'?

Katherine Anne's curator insight, October 7, 2013 5:48 PM

I think this video is very accurate. Today, we are bombarded by information about what we should buy, what we should do, etc. How much of this information do we actually retain? Barley nothing! For something to be retained, it has to be rememberable; what's rememberable? STORIES! The video explains stories are rememberable because they are meaningful. The Internet can so easily simplify information to market products, which ends up having so much information about so many different products all the time. If we take the time to explain a story behind a product when marketing it, I think it will be more profitable. STORIES are the new successful marketing strategy in this world filled with noise and information. 

Marco Gabrielli's curator insight, November 12, 2013 2:30 PM

Jennifer Aaker illustra in un video l'efficacia della narrazione nella comunicazione di marketing.


"... le storie sono significative, memorabili e incisive, e motivano le persone nel compiere un'azione ..."


a) I lettori memorizzano meglio il messaggio;


b) Ascoltano, si fidano e acquistano;


c) Vivono le emozioni e razionalizzano solo dopo.


La narrazione ritrova il suo originale ruolo di mercato, pilotando le conversazioni di business.

A bit of the same old story, but always good to be reminded

Prof. Hankell's curator insight, September 18, 2013 2:18 PM

Robin Good's insight:


Tom Webster illustrates clearly why content curation is not a backup solution for those looking for a content marketing strategy that saves them time and resources.


Content curation, according to Tom Webster, "is even harder--and rarer--than quality creative output".


and "...the ability to create value through curation is uncommon."


And the solution, notwithstanding what conferences and events may appear to suggest, is not simply in having new fancy tools. The real difference is in how me and you curate the content we select.


"And the learned skill (through pattern recognition) that both the content curator and the content docent must share is the ability to discriminate."

Humans can "discriminate" in much more subtle ways than computers can, and this ability, if refined, is going to become a very valuable asset in the near future.


This is why content curators as well as content "guides" (from museum docents) will play an increasingly important role to their audiences, especially when compared to those who are just passing on "interesting links".


He further writes: "It will be increasingly difficult, in this age of declining content arbitrage, to build an audience through curation—to get new people to gravitate to your content if you are just passing along other people's content.


But if you build an audience first—if you are known for something—then your curation has meaning."


The author also points to two excellent examples of content curation: John Gruber (Daring Fireball) and Chris Penn (christopherspenn.com).

A good reading for anyone interested in better understanding what content curation is all about.

Rightful. 8/10
