Stories - Why They Are So Important NOW in Biz

Stories - Why They Are So Important NOW in Biz | Storytelling Communication narrative Marques et entreprises | Scoop.it

Your website must begin by sharing stories. Almost immediately your marketing should emphasize User Generated Content (UGC). You share your stories to create TRUST. When your customers share their stories trust is assured.

Harish, what are your experiences with C2 builder? Do you use it?
Hans Duchardt's comment, October 1, 2013 11:02 AM
At my host I create an invitation page to invite visitors to write their own impressions/experience for a certain topic (mainly places in my hometown, a travel destination) and these "comments" of a minimum of 250-300 words plus pictures create a brand new page on MY site and adds quite some value. Content2 is something which should become soon main stream. It's catching on.

Many thanks for the additional information Hans! I look forward to checking out C2 builder.

Consumers Hungry for Brand Stories

Consumers Hungry for Brand Stories | Storytelling Communication narrative Marques et entreprises | Scoop.it

"An October 2012 survey by Edelman Berland and Adobe found that American consumers are looking for deeper brand engagement than banner ads and social media “like” buttons. 73% of the 1000 adults surveyed agreed with the statement, “Advertisements should tell a unique story, not just try to sell.”

 

Well, there can be no argument now about the case for business storytelling! At least as far as branding and marketing is concerned.

 

Enjoy the chart this research shows. I know I'll be using this in my work with clients!

 

Thanks to fellow curator Gregg Morris @greggvm and his Story and Narrative Scoop.it curation for finding this and sharing :)

The Emotional Cycle of Digital Interactivity

The Emotional Cycle of Digital Interactivity | Storytelling Communication narrative Marques et entreprises | Scoop.it

"I’ve long maintained that phenomena like “social media” are behaviors, more so than channels or applications or types of media inventory, what have you. There are extrinsic factors at play like market movements, various forms of scarcity, supply and demand levers, etc. and there are intrinsic factors like human emotion that are rarely, if ever, discussed when it comes to making investments in these types of ventures."

 

My colleague and fellow curator Jan L. Gordon originally shared this post and I thought it would be great to include here also.

 

Why? Because effective storytelling is about conveying emotions. Yet when we share our biz stories, what emotions should we be focusing on? It is easy to default to hope. Or confidence. 

 

What I like about this chart and post is that it addresses the common emotions people experience as they interact and share online -- both positive and negative.

 

It seems logical to me that in knowing this information, we should be paying attention to whether the emotions we are conveying in our biz stories online are connecting with the emotional experiences of people. This chart can help us figure it out.

 

Now, I wouldn't want to be limited to slavishly sticking to this chart. But it is a good place to begin!

 

As the author, Gunther Sonnenfeld says, "I believe that any great technology venture (any great company, really) must provide doors to perception and discovery that look well beyond transactional or even relationship benefits to some degree." Yeah! Treating business storytelling as purely transactional or relational is only the first rung of effectiveness.

 

And don't forget to read the comments at the end of the post. They are chock full of great insights and discussion about online storytelling, branding, and emotion.

 

Thank you Jan for finding this gem! @janlgordon

Telling Stories, Connectedly

Telling Stories, Connectedly | Storytelling Communication narrative Marques et entreprises | Scoop.it
Telling stories, connectedlyScreen AfricaThere are a couple of points that are worth remembering as you try to transition to a more connected form of digital storytelling. Firstly, the audience is in control.

 

Now here is a thoughtful article that shares with us a glimpse of the future -- specifically the technologies on the horizon that will continue to change the tools we use to share our biz stories.

 

The main point of this post is the increasing importance of connecting and sharing your stories across different technology media -- computer, iPads, mobile. And in various forms -- digital stories, social media snippets, online maps, and the like. To be the most effective, your biz stories need to connect and link together -- be part of a focused whole.

 

This does not mean you have a single narrative that is shared across platforms and through different technologies. This means you have a series of biz stories that you share. Some of these stories are best shared digitally, some in social media, others face-to-face (yes, that is still a technology available to us!!), others on our website, etc. The entire collection of your biz stories create your brand, your voice, your reputation.

 

This is a good "let's step back and see the big picture" article.

 

I very much like the author's points at the end: all of these choices can be overwhelming, and get help from others to work with the new tools. Now if I just had a few more hours each day to use more of these digital tools .... :))

Storytelling and Primal Branding -- Essential Elements

Ideas For Strengthening Online Video Community [Creator's Tip #58] is the original title of this post.


This is the second part of our conversation with Patrick Hanlon, the author of, "Primal Branding... WATCH PART 1 OF OUR INTERVIEW FIRST! http://youtu.be/upzypRWCcDE

 

Here's a 15:46 minute video interview with the author of "Primal Branding: Create Zealots for Your Brand, Your Company, and Your Future," Patrick Hanlon. 

 

In the interviewer Tim Schmoyer chats with Patrick about how businesses can use the Primal Code and they share examples as they go along.

 

What caught my attention was element #2: The Creed. This is your "I believe..." statement.

 

I'm thinking that your creed/I believe statement is a new way to think/talk about a company's Unique Selling Proposition -- which is a good thing! I find creeds/I believe statements to be much more compelling and easier for many to get their heads wrapped around.

 

The rest of the Primal Code are these elements:

Creation story Icons Rituals Language Anti-believers A Leader

When you link your stories into elements 2-6 you will have a dynamite marketing voice or point of view. And you can use these elements to adjust the rest of your biz stories so you have a tight, united whole.

 

Watch the video if you want to know more and then check out this other article for more text about Primal Branding: http://www.reelseo.com/strengthen-online-video-brand-primal-code/

What's the Difference Between a Blogger and a Storyteller?

What's the Difference Between a Blogger and a Storyteller? | Storytelling Communication narrative Marques et entreprises | Scoop.it
What elements set storytellers apart from bloggers? Discover 3 elements of blog storytelling that will emotionally charge your audience.

 

I'm afraid, the more we've progressed with blog strategy, practice and technology the further away we've journeyed from telling and sharing compelling stories. And this, in my view is the missing ingredient in too many blogs. Blogs where there's too much focus on information, facts and boring sameness. Devoid of drama and a call to adventure these bland tasting blogs tend to calm our emotions instead of stirring up our convictions.

 

Thank you Gregg Morris for scooping and sharing this article!
