Storytelling and Marketing; Selling a Story or Telling Your Truth?

Storytelling and Marketing; Selling a Story or Telling Your Truth? | Digital-News on Scoop.it today | Scoop.it


A very good friend of mine, Real Estate Coach Darin Persinger wrote a post this week called Storytelling Isn’t Marketing poking some holes into how we can be quite guilty of buying in to the ‘new shiny tool’ or in this case the ‘new shiny idea’.

 

This post is from author Teri Conrad and is an excellent reminder of how storytelling is re-shaping marketing. Teri makes great points here:

Success in marketing is about applying systems and following through. Even if you have compelling stories, without a system very little is going to happen. People buy the Why of your product/service, not the What (features). Embody the "what can I give?" perspective. Focus on creating fabulous experiences for customers/clients. Know and communication your purpose -- get clear on that.

 

Points 2-5 are all about how you frame your stories and then convey them. I would add one more -- make sure you are authentic!

 

Using stories in your marketing can be very powerful. Follow these principles to ensure success with your business storytelling.

The Vital Role of Scenarios in Learning

The Vital Role of Scenarios in Learning | Digital-News on Scoop.it today | Scoop.it
In the world of website development, they say content is king. In the world of training/education, you can provide truckloads of content, but it's really context that rules.

Why Include Scenarios?

 

I like this article! Hey -- in business we are constantly having to educate people about our product or service. So here's an idea for you -- use scenarios in your presentations to get everyone involved in on-the-spot learning. Providing someone an experience of your company, product, service builds instant connection, rapport, and transfers knowledge.

 

The author has a terrific diagram in the article about creating scenarios along with lots of great links.

 

Now if you are a trainer, scenarios are not new to you, but I bet you will find the info and links shared here a valuable resource!

 

Thanks @IdeaLearningGroup for sending me this link :)

Fab Biz Story Example for Marketing!

Fab Biz Story Example for Marketing! | Digital-News on Scoop.it today | Scoop.it

I was at a meeting today and my friend Barbara showed me this postcard (see photo above) she received in the mail from the motivational products company Baudville. Barbara runs Mind Masters, a small business coaching enterprise. As we passed around the postcard we all remarked at how personalized the card was -- mentioning Barbara and her company by name. Now that impressed us!

 

But even better yet, I love Baudville's creative use of story for promo purposes. From what I know about Baudville, it seems their culture is in alignment with their marketing -- which is what we want. Anyway, this is a terrific idea and story! We were all smiling as we read it. 

 

If you are not able to read the text on the photo above, here is the story:

"Once upon a time, a company called Baudville offered Barbara $25 to give their products another try. Barbara accepted the offer, but saving a bundle on some amazing employee recognition tools was just the beginning. As Baudville products circulated Mind Masters, joy erupted, scattering polka dots and moonbeams throughout the air. Goodwill became contagious, productivity soared, and spirits rocketed into the stratosphere. Some even say a unicorn was spotted that day. A miracle? Nope, we get that all the time. And that's how Barbara saved the day (and $25)."

 

What a hoot! And you can do this too for your biz :)) 

 

Have a wonderful holiday weekend everyone and chat with you next week. 

 

Keep sharing your stories!
