This is a great way for students to be engaged in history outside of the classroom. I see that some of the apps have notifications for a new topics, which gives students a daily rotation of historical events and topics. I would recommend using one of these apps for a project. This project could even be designing an app that would be interesting to people of a certain time period.

You are in a tough situation Carolin and it reminds me of the go-go days of bank mergers when I was consulting in that industry. And yes, silos became stronger because of high degrees of uncertainty. Your instincts are right -- the more people can get to know each other across silos, the walls will start becoming more permeable. Story sharing across groups (one-to-one or in group settings) is really critical here.

Thank you Wu for your comment. All of these are great reminders that in this day of social media, it is still important to pay attention to word of mouth marketing, which has significant impact on a business. For anyone who wants to know more, Google the Word Of Mouth marketing association.
C hu ck's curator insight, May 14, 2014 6:27 AM

This article argues about how the “word-of-mouth marketing” is important to brands. Personally, I also agree that the power of “word-of-mouth” cannot be ignored. 
Consumers have positive and negative experiences when shopping, and they usually tell the people they know about their experiences. In other words, the conversion between consumers about brands is far more influential than any advertisement has been or ever will be. For statement and proof of this situation the article also provided a survey, which asked consumers about factors influencing their purchase decision. The result showed that 92% people would trust recommendations from people they know, or even opinions and comments posted online by strangers. In addition, the positive influences can bring benefit to the brand, and on the other hand, the negative influences can also be amplified exponentially through word of mouth. 

Normally, both online and offline advertising has become a powerful weapon to hit the market because it not only achieves advertising’s effectiveness, but also provides consumers with a great deal of information about a new brand or product (Plummer, 2007). Therefore, for marketers, it is essential to have consumers engaged, so as to promote the brand and try to avoid the negative influences. In this post-advertising age, when consumers have been exposed to various sources of information, the marketers need to make good use of all kinds of media available and turn themselves into stories or create a brand narrative for consumers to unearth, engage with, and explore. When consumers have positive experiences in the process of associating themselves to the brands, they will be willing to recommend the brands to others.

Karen Dietz's curator insight, August 6, 2013 3:33 PM

See that photo above? Yep -- that's what I look like today! After a marathon writing session of four 16-hour days and sleepless nights, the Marketing/Branding chapter for Business Storytelling For Dummies is finally in the hands of co-author Lori Silverman.


Lori is now going to whip those pages into shape and backfill with additional critical material. We make an awesome collaborative team coming up with content, and I couldn't do this without her.


Whew! I am so excited about this one, even though it was the toughest one to write. Why was it so hard? Because of all the amazing material that is out there on storytelling and marketing -- and all the links and examples to share with you.


Truly, storytelling and marketing requires its own book, not a mere 21 pages. But we hope we've offered perspective, strategy, and how-to steps that you can put to use immediately. And no, I'm not writing the "Marketing and Business Storytelling for Dummies" book! I'll let someone else do that marathon :)


And hey -- only 2 chapters left! Lori's writing "Selling With Stories" and tomorrow (after I get some sleep), I'm writing "Using Stories to Spark Change." Woo hoo!!!! Almost to the finish line :)


If you want to pre-order the book, it's available form Amazon here: http://www.amazon.com/Business-Storytelling-Dummies-Personal-Finance/dp/1118661214/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1375817251&sr=8-1&keywords=business+storytelling+for+dummies 


Many thanks for all of your support as we go through this intense writing process. I so appreciate all of the encouragement and well wishes over the last 4 months. You all keep me going! I hope you like the results :))

Karen Dietz's curator insight, August 8, 2013 2:13 PM

When I first saw this article, I thought, "Hmmmm interesting." Then as I started to read it, I understood the implications for business storytelling. And it is significant, particularly if you want to grow your bottom line. And this goes for both entrepreneurs and enterprises. Heck, it even applies to non-profits and associations!


Here's the gist: author Scott Gillum of gyro and Forbes have just released a new FREE e-book andone of the chapters is on how the sales process has dramatically changed. First, if Forbes is saying this, it's time to pay attention.


Gillum says that prospects complete 57% of the sales process themselves before they ever contact you because they've been reading up on you, visiting your websites, looking at reviews and recommendations, etc. In other words, they've been reading YOUR STORIES -- that either you are sharing with them via your website, blog, etc. and the stories others are telling about you.


Stories sell. One of the steps Gillum suggests is making sure you have an active content (read storytelling) strategy in place.


Looks like it's time to rethink the sales process. I like how Gillum has charts to share that help make his point. And his thoughts in the article's final paragraphs? We all need to take those to heart.

Karen Dietz's curator insight, August 12, 2013 3:18 PM

Here is a terrific example of Columbia University (CU) using storytelling, combined with other techniques, to create an exceedingly effective fundraising campaign. As story colleague Omar Kattan writes in this article, CU and their fundraising partner took several steps at the same time. They developed:


  1. A content hub on Facebook containing the mission and story of Giving Day told through an animated film.
  2. A donation form, leaderboard, YouTube videos and two live streaming round-table discussions with online chat components.
  3. They also also provided regularly updated content, ongoing conversation management and rapid-response troubleshooting during the 24-hour fundraising event. 


It was a concentrated effort that won big. I particularly liked point #3 -- including ongoing conversation in the mix. Conversation and story sharing is critically important when using stories in fundraising. When the organization shares a story, it prompts a story in return. So make sure you provide for this as you work with your business stories!


And I like how Omar also included links to the actual stories the campaign used. The video from CU on the website is more a promo piece than a story. But stories were part of the campaign and it made a difference.


Go read the article, look at the other amazing stats shared, and enjoy the stories.

Hi Parker -- I appreciate you adding your voice here. In my experience, executives are too quick to put their stories into digital media.

A few articles ago I curated the piece on the research between storytelling and storydoing companies. http://www.scoop.it/t/just-story-it?q=storydoers 

As I said in my review, I applaud the endeavor to quantify storytelling, and the results shown are promising. But some of the assumptions are troubling and I end up having more questions than applause. Some of the comments in the discussion thread in the online article by Ty Montague are interesting too. Some make valid points. Some raise my eyebrows.


In any event, my friend and business story colleague Ashraf Ramzey in the Netherlands chimes in with his opinion in his recent blog post. He is hot under the collar like I get sometimes :) Ashraf is brilliant, knows his stuff, is well trained in storytelling, and he isn't just blowing smoke.


For Ashraf, the research is just another expression of the hype around storytelling these days. And he puts in a better context some of the thinking these days about business storytelling and marketing/branding. 


Many thanks Ashraf for weighing in. And I hope my readers are getting the sense that there are many sides to business storytelling. The clearer we are about the approaches, methodologies, terms, etc. that we are using, the better of we will be.
