Forget Emoticons -- Skype Wants You to Use 'Humoticons' | StoryBranding: How brands can embrace the power of story | Scoop.it

If you're looking for an example of StoryBranding at its best, this is it. 

Skype has launched a campaign built around the value of voice to voice/face to face communications, something that has gone astray since the advent of twitter and Facebook (which happens to own Skype).  This is Skype's story and an identity that its prospects and customers can readily identify with.

Pinterest is Great for All Types of Professionals - Here's Why

Pinterest is Great for All Types of Professionals - Here's Why | StoryBranding: How brands can embrace the power of story | Scoop.it

This piece was written by Carolyn Elefant for Smallfirminnovation and she has some very interesting suggestions for professionals and how they can take advantage of this exciting new site.

 

Pinterest is definitely not going away anytime soon, I've been on here for a week and it's a whole new way connecting with people through points of interest by sharing topics that tell a story about your business. It's a wonderful way of interacting with them without being intrusive while observing who your customers and seeing how  you can might be of service to them.

 

Here are a few great tips that caught my attention:

 

Depending upon your practice focus, Pinterest can provide a similar source of content.

 

**For example, if you represent small business owners, you might create a board for low-cost office products.

 

**If you work with families with children with special needs, you could aggregate educational toys and products that might help overwhelmed parents alleviate stress.

 

**As you take a look around Pinterest, you’re sure to come up with ideas that work for you.

Four Examples of Successful Long-Form Branded Content (Stories)

Four Examples of Successful Long-Form Branded Content (Stories) | StoryBranding: How brands can embrace the power of story | Scoop.it
In a world where audiences consuming media have a fleeting attention span, one would think that long-form branded content wouldn't stand a chance. Wrong.

 

LOL -- in the nano-second world of today's advertising, this article talks about long-form branded content that is 2-5 minutes long. Too funny!

 

But the video examples shared are great stories and one is a complete sports back-story that lasts 28 minutes.

 

And I love the main point of the post:  that when you give a compelling story for someone to view, listen to, or read you can capture and keep their attention.

 

Of course, that means you need excellent storytelling skills that lead to excellent stories. 

 

I bet these videos give you great ideas about the biz stories you can tell, and how to craft + share them. Enjoy watching them!

Beyond Storytelling: Narrative Brand Marketing

Beyond Storytelling: Narrative Brand Marketing | StoryBranding: How brands can embrace the power of story | Scoop.it

" 'Stories' and 'narratives' are often used interchangeably as synonyms, but I’d like to draw a distinction between the two terms and explain how a sequence of stories makes up a narrative. Let’s explore how thinking about narrative brand marketing will help guide your story-telling marketing efforts."

 

There are some great points made in this article about how a repertoire of business stories creates your overall brand narrative.  That's an excellent way to think about it.

 

I also like the point the author makes about storytelling being an ongoing and dynamic activity that business engage in with their marketing. Again a reminder that biz storytelling is about the interplay between telling and listening, sharing and engagement. It is not about broadcasting.

 

There are more insights here. I think you will enjoy reading this quick article.
