Want Engagement? Storytelling is Relational, not Transactional | immersive media | Scoop.it
My origin story is a tale of constant change. The most recent transition, from running the multimedia desk at the New York Times to chairing the University of Oregon's Agora Journalism Center, is filled with many life lessons.

What a great post this is, with really good insights about engagement.


We know marketing, branding, and other business storytelling applications are beginning to make the switch into engagement. This post is written from the field of journalism about what engagement looks and feels like -- for example, the need for interdisciplinary skills.


Here are 3 ways to get the most insights from this article: 

  1. Read it through once as is.
  2. Read it through again, and substitute the word "storytelling" for the word "journalism".
  3. Read it through a third time, and substitute the word "marketing" for the word "journalism".


Have fun and let's create more engagement!

Ligar periodismo y arte no es siempre sinónimo de rigor, incluso se asocia como humor y poca seriedad. Sin embargo, con las innovadoras tácticas de diseño gráfico se está logrando un periodismo narrativo y original a través del arte. Quizá en el dibujo esté la clave para contar historias de otro modo y llegar a diferentes públicos de manera directa.

The Storytelling Backlash: 9 Arguments Against It

Karen Dietz's curator insight, September 2, 2015 2:28 PM

What a provocative piece! Yes, there's a backlash against storytelling going on. Basically, that storytelling is bad and we should avoid it. Makes me laugh. 


Since we think in stories, talk in stories, and stories are the way we make meaning of the world, It's like people saying "Don't have a brain!" How silly.


So this article charts out the 9 arguments against storytelling, and offers clear, concise, brilliant rebuttals. Yay! Take these to your clients/colleagues whenever you hear one of these pop out of their mouths.


Written by Ron Ploof, as you read these arguments you will scoff and then enjoy Ron's reply. Above all, keep those stories coming! Be brave. Story is worth fighting for.

Dr. Pamela Rutledge's curator insight, August 15, 2015 11:19 AM

The trouble with companies watching the world disrupt their business models is that it's hard for them to quit panicking long enough to raise their vision to reconceptualize how they can satisfy the market's core needs. (I'm not suggesting that this is EASY, btw, just necessary.) Think Kodak.  People don't want a better magazine any more than they wanted better film cameras.  www.audiencepsych.com

Confusion Alert: Is Corporate Storytelling Replacing News?

Confusion Alert: Is Corporate Storytelling Replacing News? | immersive media | Scoop.it

"Today's discussion: When journalism's business model falters, should we all jump ship to 'corporate storytelling,' also known as content marketing?"


Via Karen Dietz

Karen Dietz's curator insight, May 15, 2014 3:35 PM

Fellow curator zbutcher sent me this piece and I think it is worth commenting on.


Basically, this article is about how corporate storytelling is perhaps replacing journalism. But what I experience as I read this article is that there's a lot of confusion between effective corporate storytelling, journalism, and public relations (PR).


So this is a problematic article on many fronts, and it helps inform us about what we need to do and not do when working in business storytelling. It may even help those corporations trying to do good storytelling where they might be going astray because the story label is applied so broadly.


You should know that I was trained as a journalist, and worked in that capacity, oh so many years ago. There is a huge difference between news stories, feature stories, and the kind of storytelling we talk about here, even though they are all called stories. 


News stories are crafted as a pyramid. The who, what, when, where, why goes at the top. Stories follow an inverted pyramid where a context is set and then we drive home to the point of the story at the bottom. Feature news stories focus on grabbing the most interesting part of the story and sharing that at or near the beginning.


As the author says, the best of corporate storytelling is not mere promotion, announcements, or spin. Oh sure, there's tons of that around and it often is not worthy of anyone's attention.


And content marketing is just a vehicle for sharing stories. Content marketing is a mix of news and the best of business storytelling.


OK -- so why pay attention to this article? Well, it's a good example of the different notions out there in the marketplace about business storytelling. Yet despite this, it shows how journalists can also be great assets in a content marketing strategy, particularly when "I'm always reporting and writing as a service to our readers, not the companies I'm writing about" as the author says.


I think, however, that the author got it backwards when she says "Journalism is more than storytelling." I think it should read: "Storytelling is more than journalism" because news/feature stories are not the only kind of storytelling on the planet.
