From Good to Epic: The Principles of Journalism Applied To Content ...

Plenty of so-called journalistic practices have already infiltrated marketing departments and agencies around the world.

Karen Dietz's curator insight, May 22, 2014 2:54 PM

I just wrote this blog for Curatti.com that was posted today and it's all about how to find and tell your customer's stories.


The post is a compendium of the best articles I've found on the topic plus one blog post I wrote myself.


There are lots of good resources for you to investigate. I include articles on who the real hero of the story is, how to gather stories, how to listen for customer stories, and how to turn your customer stories into tons of repurpose-able content. Each article has more resources or examples to check out.


After reviewing this material everyone should be able to gather and tell their customer stories in powerful ways.


This review was written by Karen Dietz for her curated content on business storytelling at www.scoop.it/t/just-story-it 

Kim Zinke (aka Gimli Goose)'s curator insight, May 23, 2014 2:28 AM
