Wonderful way to get people to talk about books or tell their stories. Not only a source of sincere reviews but a way to anonymously share a piece of your life.

Kim Zinke (aka Gimli Goose)'s curator insight, June 12, 2014 12:39 PM

I listened to five of these last night.  They were all short and oh so very interesting.  People always comment about their relationship with songs, but this is the first time I've thought about my relationship with books - why I read it, where I was, my state of mind, or how it impacted me.


These are not book reviews, but the story of the reader and their relationship with the book. My favourite so far is the story/book about dictionaries.

So to really do it right, you need to constantly ask yourself "What value am I bringing to the reader?" Nail this down, add your own content/messaging to the curated content, and you should find a bevy of new readers.


Of course I'm going to encourage you to use Scoop.it. It's superb.

Brand Storytelling: Thinking Outside of the Blog - Relevance

Brand Storytelling: Thinking Outside of the Blog - Relevance | Storytelling | Scoop.it
Content marketing is not about blogging, podcasting, making videos, or shooting photos. It’s about memorable brand storytelling.
Gabriela Mihailescu's insight:

Two good examples of brands who got the trick. How do you get "memorable"? The inner sense of the word is that you can't get it every day. Even Salvador Dali had his days without inspiration. Eventually, a smart brand should find a sort of social media recipe. All good if recipe don't reside to mindless automation.

Telling A Story That Hooks Audiences: A Fab Example

Karen Dietz's curator insight, July 21, 2014 7:22 PM

Colleague Michael Harris wrote this blog post recently and I couldn't stop cracking up! I laughed so hard I had to read the story to my husband Tim. He laughed just as hard.


Michael uses storytelling in his sales training and he uses this story to demonstrate why it works. And to point out the difference between 'corporate speak' and storytelling. Imagine telling this story in corporate language. We'd be bored to tears.


But here's another way to think about this story: we all have at least one story like this. A story when we screwed up big time. A story about a time we failed. A story about a near miss. A story about good friends who stick around even after misadventures. 


All of these stories have a place in business. Because they make you human. When shared authentically they form and deepen relationships. They let us know that even when we screw up, there is redemption. This is how we learn from others -- about what not to do, and about being human at work.


Sharing ups and downs helps us build deeper and stronger relationships. It might surprise you to experience how showing your vulnerability actually generates more trust and respect in you and for you. When we hide our failures from others, we idealize ourselves while separating ourselves from others at the same time. Not good.


So read this article and go have a good laugh. Then ask yourself, "What story do I share in return?" Michael's story should spark one within you.


Capture that story and share it at the right time in a business setting. You'll be glad you did.

Gabriela Mihailescu's insight:

A tutorial is a story. A tutorial about how to draw a tulip is an emotional, beautiful story which can be told to you, so you can tell it to others.
