Karen Dietz's curator insight, March 26, 4:01 PM

Every day we have opportunities to share our business stories across multiple platforms. Some days it makes my head spin. Which is why I really like the article Mike Jones, of interactive media company Portal Entertainment, recently wrote that help simplify the chaos.


Jones shares with us 6 principles for writing (I say storytelling) in a multiplatform world. Yay! 


Jones is a wonderful writer and I've been following him for a few years because his approach to writing is right in line with much of business storytelling.


A couple points he makes in this post are:

  1. New storytelling forms always emerge. We've come a long way since early cave paintings. Yet we don't replace new forms -- the previous ones we still use. So don't ignore previous forms -- use them.
  2. Don't get stuck serving only one medium. In other words, I may be a business storyteller, but I'm also a writer, speaker, etc. I show up how I'm needed.
  3. Don't just tell a story. Build a cohesive Story World with your stories.


There are more insights for you here. What I appreciate about Jones' post is that instead of focusing on what story to tell in which way on this medium, he gives us comprehensive principles to guide our storytelling across any platform.

Perhaps you've heard of the Significant Objects project which showed how attaching a story to a cheap garage sale item can boost its price by over 2700%. Yes -- that's not a typo.


Now here is another example showing the same result. See, it's not a fluke! Even better, in this case the story not only significantly increased the bottom line, it led to higher visibility and a book deal for the author. Gotta love that!


So the ROI of storytelling in product sales is getting well documented. The ROI of storytelling in relationship building, influence, and the like is still tougher to determine. But we're getting closer. Enjoy this story and the results!

Yay -- an app from StoryCorps that helps you capture anyone's stories!


Over 500 nonprofits already collect stories of their constituents using StoryCorps. You can use it to collect the stories of your customers, also.


But not just any stories. Since growing a business is about connecting with customers and building sustaining relationships, ask for stories that help you get to know them better. 


Pick a theme that connects to how your company serves the world. Ask your customers and staff for stories that speak to that theme.


Use the app to capture, preserve, and share with the world. It's a true gift to have someone felt heard and valued. This app could be a great way to do this on any kind of scale you want.


Story on!

Jim Lerman's insight

 

EdTechTeacher, co-founded by Tom Daccord and Justin Reich, is a wonderful edtech consulting and training organization. Among many things that it does, ETT sponsors conferences, workshops, and leadership seminars. They are perhaps most well known for their Teacher iPad Summits held each year in Boston and San Diego

 

ETT's website hosts many resources, this Scoop focuses on their outstanding (and growing) collection of video tutorials (185 strong as of today...March 30, 2015). You may find the library on Vimeo (just click on the headline or the image above).

 

Each video provides a professionally produced demo/explanation of how to use some the the latest and greatest apps and techniques. Recent examples include "Pop up Video with Explain Everything," "VideoNot.es Tutorial," "Snagit Video Tutorial," and "Kaizena Video Tutorial."

 

All of this material is free. What a generous contribution by these wonderfully talented and creative people!

One of my former clients, Andy Paul @ZeroTimeSelling  of Zero Time Selling, writes this post that is right on.


When someone asks you, "What do you do?" -- forget the elevator speech!! Yes, that's right. Just drop it. Share a 30-40 second client story instead. You will get way better results.


What kinds of results? Memorability. The listener will know the difference you make and the value  you bring. You will have begun a relationship, turning a prospect into a warmer lead. These are all things we want.


Andy's post tells you exactly how to create a 30-40 second story. I've used this technique for years and it really works!


The only suggestion I would add is to make sure your customer story makes your customer the hero -- not your. Show the listener how the client was able to do something extraordinary. Everyone wants to be the hero. You are the secondary character.


Go read this post and try it out this week. You'll be glad you did!

Here's a 4 step process for taking complex data and shaping it into a story so it is easy to understand. Really, these 4 steps are all about how to think better about the data so you can better find and share its story.


In reality, there is a lot more to visualizing data and combining that with good storytelling skills. But these 4 steps lay a strong foundation for getting started. There's a video for sale on the site that suggests a more thorough treatment. I have no affiliation with it, and you'll need to check it out if you are interested.


I'm pleased however, that we are starting to get much better a data storytelling and getting good advice now about how to do it.

The post by Ilan Mochari @IlanMochari gives the directions for how to use this game to generate stories and visual storyboards in a fast and fun way. And it teaches everyone a lot about communication, too.


Why would you want to use this game? In this instance it was used to generate new ideas for marketing and branding campaigns. As the author says, it's easy to rinse and repeat previous campaigns, and harder to come up with new ones.


I think it's ingenious and definitely want to try it out. If you experiment with it, let us know what happens. And what other ways could you use this game in business?

What Is The Ideal Length Of A Tweet (And Other Communications)? - Edudemic | Libraries, HigherEd on an iPad | Scoop.it

"There are so many ways that teachers are using social media –  both in the classroom and for their own professional development. From Instagram   and Facebook in the classroom to Twitter lists and hashtags for their PLN, there are so many social networks and so much content to choose from when you’re looking. You know that whether you’re browsing through your Twitter feed or searching on Pinterest, there are certain things that catch your eye and other things that blend into the background. You pick and choose what looks interesting to you.

 

When you’re the creator of the content, however – either for professional use with other teachers or for student’s consumption – you need to be concerned with getting your message out there in a way that ensures it isn’t the content that is blending into the background. The handy infographic below takes a look at the ideal length for all of your social media postings.  Keep reading to learn more!"

Of course some types of tweets are best left unposted whatever size they are

Chris Eller's curator insight, June 24, 2014 1:44 PM

This is a topic I, personally, have been wrestling with recently. If you look at many of the forms of communication listed in the infographic, the common denominator is how short our attention span is when consuming online information.


For example, 


  • Video - 3 to 3.5 minutes
  • Presentation (sermon?) - 18 minutes
  • Podcast - 22 minutes
  • Headline - 60 characters


Based on my own informal research at First Family Church, I would have to agree with the the overall consensus of these findings. A common complaint I receive in our Small Group Curriculum Evaluations is that we provide too much information. Consequently, I am looking for ways to break our teaching into even smaller chunks and develop teaching helps (e.g. handouts) that are available by clicking a link rather than including in the formal lesson.


From a church perspective, would it be too frightening to try and evaluate how engaged people are during a 40 to 50 minute sermon? A very informal indication could be how many people are using their phones or mobile devices during a sermon. Yes, they have their Bible on their device, and it is likely they are referring to the digital Bible occasionally, but if someone is staring intently at their phone or tablet for an extended period of time during the sermon, odds are good they have transitioned to something else and are focused on the content on their device rather than actively listening to the sermon.


If you have the courage, try and see how many in your church this Sunday are staring at their mobile devices rather than actively listening to your sermon.


What are your thoughts? Will the church need to adjust its centuries-old method of teaching as the attention span of church attenders shrinks?
