A good story can make or break a presentation, article, or conversation. But why is that? When Buffer co-founder Leo Widrich started to market his product through stories instead of benefits and bullet points, sign-ups went through the roof.

How to Inspire Action Through Storytelling

Today I want to discuss the art of storytelling, and how it can be used to help people – your audience, your consulting client, your corporate team, your community volunteer group – achieve their goals.

 

While there is a lot of buzz around storytelling, as demonstrated by at least two books published this year on the subject (see resources), for most people (including me until about a year ago), storytelling is something that exists in a separate domain from our daily life, a domain reserved for entertainment, for education, for enlightenment – but not for success in life.

7 Tips for Better Storytelling | Hands On Blog

7 Tips for Better Storytelling | Hands On Blog | Litteris | Scoop.it

“How often do you tell your organization's story?  Being able to tell your organization’s story well can help you in everything from recruiting volunteers to writing reports. Here are some tips for telling your story well:


1. Stories are about people.

2. Let your characters speak for themselves.

3. Audiences bore easily.

4. Stories stir up emotions.

5. Stories don’t tell: they show.

6. Stories have at least one “moment of truth.”

7. Stories have a clear meaning.”

10 (More) Amazing Videos About the Creative Process -- The Fuel Of Storytelling | Litteris | Scoop.it
We hand-pick the web's best videos about the creative process from some of the world's most talented creative minds.

 

I stumbled upon this the other day and couldn't wait to share it with you. And I thought Friday would be a great day so you can have a totally inspiring weekend!

 

I've watched all of these videos and they are awesome. And each one is different. Each has its own unique message/messages about creativity, art, life, and work. Fabulous!

 

These are keepers and I've added them to my 'favorites' on YouTube so I can go back and dip into them whenever I need a lift.

 

I hope you enjoy them as much as I do and take away lots of good stuff to incorporate into daily living!

How to handle descriptions in a literary story you want to tell orally

How to handle descriptions in a literary story you want to tell orally | Litteris | Scoop.it
The wood’s descriptions just don’t work. I wanted you to move forward already. If I wanted to tell the story fully, the way you told it just now, I’m reconsidering. It has to be more ‘story like’ and help me connect. Maybe I need to lower the language and shorten the descriptions. Some pictures were very good, I could see them crystal clear, and there was action. Reading the story is very effective, listening to it – isn’t.

 

Unknowingly, G pointed at the main problem around telling literary stories; they were created in writing for the page, not orally.

Henrik Safegaard - Cloneartist's curator insight, December 13, 2012 4:30 AM

Digital comics is a medium that is still finding its footing. 2012 was a banner year, and saw the launch of new and progressive approaches to exploring the seemingly infinite possibilities of the digital canvas. One such launch was Comic Book Think Tank, spearheaded by Ron Perazza and Daniel Govar.

Why Is Storytelling So Vital For Children By Maria Brosnan, The Story Spinner

Why Is Storytelling So Vital For Children By Maria Brosnan, The Story Spinner | Litteris | Scoop.it

Storytelling is the longest serving, most faithful form of teaching we know.

 

We have always used stories to inspire, inform and instruct.

 

But why have many stories that logic tells us should have long lost their appeal, survived?

Ultimately my feeling is the net will be the source that saves the arts, the place where writers, producers, actors, musicians, artists can express themselves. The web series trend is the new way of telling stories and will continue attract the best in the industry as long as freedom reigns. This is just the beginning. Who knows what the future holds for scripted serials, whether on network television or online. I believe web series are here to stay and I am convinced it is an amazing opportunity for all who seek to keep the legacy of 'The Arts' alive!

Product Storytelling – Don’t Forget the Context « A Random Jog | Litteris | Scoop.it
"When launching a new product, it is important that customers understand what problems your product is solving. You don’t have time to tell a long story so you need to make sure your message is effective in creating a desire to learn more. This is where context can help. If you are trying to tell a story about your product, context is the background information that helps the scene make sense. Without this context, you leave it up to the customer to figure it out on their own."

Karen Dietz's curator insight, November 28, 2012 6:17 PM

Truer words couldn't be said! The author has great advice for how to create context around a product that allows the business to share its product story more effectively.


And I love that the author, Joshua Duncan uses the latest Microsoft commercial to make his point. I enjoy watching the commercial. But I agree with Joshua -- as a sales piece it doesn't work. And it is certainly not a story.


As you read what Joshua has written, don't forget to click through to his earlier post on how context does work to make a sale. The example he uses is Box.com. You can see context is provided. But I still think Box.com could do better in sharing its story.


Read both and let me know what you think! Do the examples work? Does Box.com really tell it's story? Love to hear your thoughts :)
