The Importance Of Honesty And Storytelling In Digital Marketing

“Todd Hartley: When I see a package like this and on the back there’s no story, to me it’s a missed opportunity to bring people in.  This other thing, as soon as my Reese’s digest, I’ve got this Cliff Bar right here, right?  And Cliff Bar has a story on the back of who Cliff is and why it was named after the founder’s dad, and when you get into that story and you use video or your digital marketing tactics to tell that story, you humanize what would normally be a non-human brand. And I think that’s precisely where the industry is headed.  It’s where we should be headed at this time because we are all starting to master the tools of engagement,…”

True or False? Pay Attention to a Story's Structure and Detect Whether It's Made Up

True or False? Pay Attention to a Story's Structure and Detect Whether It's Made Up | et cetera | Scoop.it

“Psychologists and psychotherapists have long relied on the power of narrative storytelling to help their patients make sense of their world. In fact, it's been said that we are our narratives. For evidence that this may be true, pay attention to how people shape their stories about themselves. As it turns out, there is a big difference between the way we narrate events that have really happened to us and those we've invented.

It would seem reasonable to assume that memories, like stories, have a beginning, a middle, and an end. But reason doesn't have much of a role in guiding memory. Avinoam Sapir is a former Israeli police officer, a lie- detection expert, and the developer of Scientific Content Analysis (SCAN), a technique designed to interpret deception in written statements. Sapir notes that true stories drawn from real memories aren't typically narrated in chronological order; that's not the way the brain organizes them. The more dramatic the story, the less chronologic its structure. Why? Because our emotions guide our memories. The more powerfully we experience an event, the more likely we are to make it the first thing we talk about, filling in the less emotionally fraught details later.

That's not to say that any story that doesn't start with high drama is a fabrication. But truthful stories—though they may not be told in chronological order—will still contain three distinct stages: a prologue, a main event section, and an epilogue.”
