Using Storytelling to Create a Consistent Brand Communication Strategy | creativeadworks.com | Stories - an experience for your audience - | Scoop.it
Isn’t storytelling an overhyped branding word?
Actually, no. Storytelling can be a very important branding tool, if you know how to use it to your advantage. Storytelling is not an overhyped branding word, but a means of focusing your communication around a central theme and creating consistent brand messages. Furthermore, narrative has been argued to be a very natural occurrence in the human brain, as a natural way of making sense of the world and our experiences, and storing and understanding memories. Things are easier to understand in story form, which makes storytelling a useful tool to explain complicated business concepts/ideas, brand values, etc to your stakeholders.

The Power of Storytelling; What Marketers Can Learn From Casey Neistat and Google

The Power of Storytelling; What Marketers Can Learn From Casey Neistat and Google | Stories - an experience for your audience - | Scoop.it

And, last Saturday morning, before I got up and on with my day, I watched his short film entitled ‘Guthrie Beach Raft’ and it got me thinking about the power of storytelling in marketing.

 

Yes, successful marketing is all about emotions -- not facts.

 

There are two videos to view here that make the author's point. The first video is OK -- for whatever reason it didn't really grab me.

 

But the second video about Google Chrome is a hit! That's because it tells a very engaging story about how someone uses Google's integrated suite of tools. It's brilliant.

 

Enjoy both of these -- and take these lessons to heart. When creating your content, decide which emotions you want to evoke in your audience and then craft your material to evoke those. 

 

As the author says, "Sometimes, facts and figures are great, but if you’re really looking to create loyalty and build a relationship with your audience then creating an emotional bond is the way forward."

Digital story-telling and the rise of the new publishers

Digital story-telling and the rise of the new publishers | Stories - an experience for your audience - | Scoop.it
In order to tell the story of Star Wars, George Lucas had to create a new technology company that was powerful enough to tell that story. The same thing has to happen in digital news publishing.

 

That’s the conclusion of Jim Bankoff, CEO and Chairman of Vox Media, whose sites The Verge and SB Nation have shaken up the world of tech and sports journalism.

 

“Story telling digitally is a native art just like broadcasting,” says Bankoff, who argues that publishers must build themselves in response to the shape of the web and its audiences.

How to create the best Social TV Shows - The 10 TV shows leading with social media

How to create the best Social TV Shows - The 10 TV shows leading with social media | Stories - an experience for your audience - | Scoop.it
The most successful shows tended to offer strong social media hubs for the program at a network site or show-specific hubs, along with extensive Facebook FB 0.31% pages and Twitter engagement. “Glee’s” characters each have their own Twitter feeds, for instance.

For advertisers who are chasing these users, it’s important to set up national media campaigns that take into account online video, as well as anything “that extends a brand beyond the television viewing occasion.”

“A big part of the negotiation now,” said Kahn, “is about how do we extend television campaigns so that they live in social media and online video? That’s something [ad agencies and programmers] are trying to figure out together.”

Where Does Your Brand Story Fall in the Storytelling Matrix?

Where Does Your Brand Story Fall in the Storytelling Matrix? | Stories - an experience for your audience - | Scoop.it
The team at Story Worldwide has developed a very useful and scientific approach to categorizing and developing brand stories. It’s called the Storytelling Matrix and they describe it best in the video below.

 

As you watch the video and listen to the examples, think about where your specific brand stories may fall — and begin to look for gaps. For example, your customer success stories or case studies may be more linear — that is, you don’t offer a way for the reader to interact. That’s fine, it’s difficult to interact with a piece of collateral that you pick up at a trade show! But, what could you do to make it more interactive? What about offering a webinar or a video of the case study that your audience could then participate in or share with others?

8 Tips for nonprofit [& for profit biz] storytelling

8 Tips for nonprofit [& for profit biz] storytelling | Stories - an experience for your audience - | Scoop.it
What’s your story? Finding and telling an organization’s most compelling stories is always my first step in the consulting process.

 

Here are 8 great storytelling tips for any nonprofit or for profit business. It's all about how to find your stories.

 

There are plenty of articles on how to tell a really engaging story that moves people to action. But where do you get those stories from?

 

Follow these tips and you will soon have a wealth of stories to choose from!  I particularly like tip #6 -- Listen. Yes! So often this is left out of the equation. We are so busy thinking about the questions to ask and how to respond that we forget that the magic in evoking stories is simply to listen delightedly -- not critically.

 

And then tip #8 -- don't polish your stories too much. Well, keep them authentic but do clean them up a bit. There is no excuse not to have a well-crafted story. Not everyone on video is a good storyteller. And turning a recorded story into a well-written story takes crafting. My advice? Craft an awesome story while keeping it authentic --you want the person telling the story to be shown in the best light possible!

How to Compete Using Content

How to Compete Using Content | Stories - an experience for your audience - | Scoop.it
Learn three content marketing fundamentals that are necessary if you're using content as a competitive business strategy.

 

For the last two years The Content Marketing Institute, Marketing Profs, and Outbrain have conducted a survey asking Marketers how they market with content.

 

100% of respondents reported using content marketing: http://bit.ly/JwxGiM ;

Vince Giorgi of Hanley Wood Marketing points out the implications of this shift: http://bit.ly/Jww1JZ ;

"If 100% of Marketers today not only understand that distinction [of content's role in marketing], but have truly begun to embrace it and act upon it, then we’ve entered a new era in the evolution of content marketing.

There are fundamentals to obey regardless of granular tactic or tool if you’re serious about competing using content to market, especially online:


1. Usefulness

2. Authenticity

3. Originality

 

Take-Out

To compete using content you must put your audience and their needs center stage

Requiring you as a Content Producer to:

# Create content that meets a growing expectation of polish and professionalism

# Match content type to audience consumption preference

# Map content to a calendar

# Treat SEO with respect [but not blind allegiance at the mercy of quality and usefulness]

 

In practice, this means that each piece of content is strategically used to build thought leadership and developed so that the content is more likely to be shared (i.e., marketed). Content shapes identity and influences customer acquisition.

Why Successful Branding Still Happens Offline

Why Successful Branding Still Happens Offline | Stories - an experience for your audience - | Scoop.it
For brands, online social networks are far from the Holy Grail of marketing. The research is clear that for brands that want to be social and generate conversation, a more powerful force is real world, face-to-face conversation.

 

Yes yes yes!! In all the hype about social networks, engagement, and customer loyalty it is easy to forget that in the relationship economy, relationship marketing, and for a return on relationship, face-to-face marketing rules.

 

Oh, just tell your stories digitally, on-line, in your social network or blog. Yes -- all of that is good. But as the author says, "Today’s consumer marketplace is highly social, but not because of particular platforms or technologies. The businesses that will be the most successful in the future are the ones that embrace a model that puts people– rather than technology – at the center of products, campaigns and market strategies."

 

Research shows that 90% of word-of-mouth conversations about brands take place offline and ar primarily face-to-face. Whoah!! As the author suggests, "start a story that consumers will want to talk about. What are the messages about your brand and category that make you talkworthy?"

 

There are many great insights in this article that I know you'll enjoy. Happy reading!

The power of storytelling, the key to consumer engagement

The power of storytelling, the key to consumer engagement | Stories - an experience for your audience - | Scoop.it
The winning formula for consumer engagement is storytelling. It sounds simple, but we only need to look back through history to see the impact that stories have had on shaping our lives: how we live them, why we live them and what it means to be human.

 

Narratives as powerful as the Bible, to ancient myths and Shakespeare's prose, speak to the heart, teaching us how to relate to one another and guiding us into action. Let's not forget that stories are easier on the ear than detached advertising taglines. Studies of human psychology have found that if we are told something through narrative, we are more likely to relate to the message, absorbing it further and remaining engaged from start to finish.

 

For a brand to appeal to consumers and replicate this empowering engagement, its content must tell a story, one that draws us in, broadens our horizons and delivers added value to our lives.

 

But how do brands do it?
