How to sell a tale: the power of stories in marketing

How to sell a tale: the power of stories in marketing | Serious Play | Scoop.it
Brands aren't built on facts and statistics alone. Connecting with customers means understanding and deploying the power of stories in marketing.

Jim Signorelli,Story-Lab's curator insight, September 3, 11:26 AM

This article provides a number of great points when it comes to the efficacy of brand storytelling, most important of which is the power of fiction over fact. 


However, it, like many articles on brand storytelling takes a point of view that I believe can be misleading.  It is the notion that the brand's role is to make the customer the hero.  


Many will (and have) disagreed with my contention that this limits the opportunity for the brand.   This is because we have always been taught to believe the customer is king or queen.  This may be true when it comes to a brand's service ethic, but this thought can get in the way when it comes to brand storytelling.


Consider this: Hero's are people we aspire to and emulate, not so much for what they do, but for what they value and believe in.   They provide us with a purpose that resonates with our own beliefs about what is important. 


I realize this could get into a lengthy article as opposed to an insight. So I'll just ask you to think about the brands you love and admire.  Are you emotionally attached to them because of the functions they perform or because of what they represent?  Here's yet another thing to consider:  When you see an ad that implies that a given product is going to make you a hero to your kids, or the envy of your neighbors, do you believe them?

Electronic portfolio | Wikiwand | Serious Play | Scoop.it
An electronic portfolio [1] is a collection of electronic evidence assembled and managed by a user, usually on the Web. Such electronic evidence may include inputted text, electronic files, images, multimedia, blog entries, and hyperlinks. E-portfolios are both demonstrations of the user's abilities and platforms for self-expression, and, if they are online, they can be maintained dynamically over time.

Improv is at the heart of storytelling and an essential skill to master when sharing stories in person. It's even more critical when two or more people are telling a story in tandem.


Here Kathy Klotz-Guest, improv and storytelling expert, gives us the skinny on how and why the two work together so well.


Kathy is interviewed on this podcast by story professional Lianne Picot for her Voice America radio show on business storytelling.


Enjoy the wisdom Kathy shares and keep having fun sharing stories.
