Free Guide: Using Images for Visual Storytelling | CauseVox

Free Guide: Using Images for Visual Storytelling | CauseVox | How to find and tell your story | Scoop.it

One of the most effective ways to tell stories is through images. Images evoke emotion — the root of what drives your nonprofit or cause. We found this free guidebook developed by the Center for Social Impact Communication at Georgetown on how you can use images to create an impact. It walks you through the types of images you should be using and how you can systematically capture them.

 

Oooo, ooooo, ooooo -- I love free guides! And here's one on how you can use images to create visual stories, or to trigger a story within the reader's imagination.

 

Happy Friday and enjoy grabbing your free guide! I hope it helps you add fabulous visuals into your stories, or create compelling visual storytelling.

Search Stories | Google Video Creator | How to find and tell your story | Scoop.it

Welcome to the Search Stories Video Creator. Just type in your searches and select the kind of results that best communicate your story. Then, share your story with the world.

 

Ha ha ha -- I just spent several hours creating 7 very short videos about business storytelling -- and had a ton of fun using Google's Search Stories Video Creator!!

 

These are micro-stories, each with a beginning, middle, and an end.  All but 3 contain a context, premise, problem, and solution. And I'll re-do those 3 tomorrow so they are stories rather than promos.

 

See, you CAN share a mini-business story using some of these new technologies!

 

This tool is so easy to use it takes no time at all. And I now have a YouTube channel :)) 

 

What a total hoot. I couldn't stop giggling every time I made one. Go check them out and tell me what you think. Then go make some of your own!
