What a Lemonade Stand Taught Me About Storytelling

What a Lemonade Stand Taught Me About Storytelling | Public Relations & Social Media Insight | Scoop.it
I was on my way to play golf this past weekend when I drove by a young girl selling lemonade on the sidewalk in front of her house.

 

On the surface this quick article with 2 videos to share looks like it is the same old story -- storytelling is essential for successful marketing, sales, and business growth.

 

But there are 2 key -- yet subtle -- messages buried in the videos.

 

In the video with Seth Godin, he makes the point that not only do you have to have a good story, but you also have to create a product/service that combines both a need people are already hungry for and that also captures their imagination. Stories are your gateway because if you design your product/service and your business around the stories you want people to share about you, you will have a leg-up on  your competition. This is quite a notion and different to how we typically do business today.

 

In the second video, the Danish author Rolf Jensen shares with us a story that makes his point: people buy the story, not the product/service. And that storytelling is the future of business development.

 

The article is short, as are the videos.  But the insights are golden and will last a lifetime!

1. Build strong, targeted social media accounts.

Your social media accounts are only as useful as the friends and followers connected to them, making the first step of building those accounts absolutely crucial.
