How great marketers tell stories

How great marketers tell stories | Litteris | Scoop.it

"Former P&G marketing chief Jim Stengel says that the best companies tell two types of stories to build strong and enduring brands."

 

"The Brand Ideal, or Purpose, of Louisville Slugger is "to make players great." That statement could sound like puffery, except that the stories surrounding the brand make it plain and true. This is the case for most Ideal-driven businesses. Stories make the Ideal wheel spin.

 

Much has been written about the importance of storytelling in marketing and management, but nowhere do tales have a taller order than inside the walls of Ideal-driven companies. They bring definition to the Ideal. They authenticate it and animate it. They inspire and direct its activation.  They reaffirm the course and perpetuate the narrative."

When positive social change is the purpose, good storytelling is just as effective (and essential).

A sample contract agreement between an author and a book cover designer | Litteris | Scoop.it
I’m not a fan of contracts (or anything binding, or closing doors, or other A-personality stuff). I avoid extra, non-essential work if I can help it. And since I know I will always over deliver, contracts seem like overkill to me.
