Seven tips in digital storytelling from the New York Times and CNN

Seven tips in digital storytelling from the New York Times and CNN | Creativity as changing tool |

"We are in a golden age of storytelling" was the message shared by the New York Times's assistant managing editor Jim Roberts early on in a session at the News World Summit today named 'Obituary: The death of the traditional news story".


This article is slanted toward journalists. But think about it -- if you are using content, or creating content in your business to drive sales, then in many ways you are being a journalist. Especially if you attend conferences or events and report on those later to your customers/community.


So these 7 tips are pretty interesting and I bet you can incorporate many of them as your develop and promote your content. Like, 'avoid the 900-word valueless story' and 'incorporate live feeds' into your content. Hmmm -- that's an intesting one to get your head wrapped around. But that could be a lot of fun to do, especially at conferences or events.


So check these tips out. They are not your typical 'digital storytelling tips' that are a dime-a-dozen on the web. And I hope you get some good ideas!

Just Story It - Scoops | Creativity as changing tool |

Here are the best articles from across the web that I can find on using stories and storytelling in business.

I've chosen them because they actually make a contribution to our knowledge and wisdom about stories, show us how to apply stories to growing our businesses, or give valuable how-to tips.

I weed out all the junk. And besides, who needs another post in why storytelling is important?? Where's the beef?? We want the meat!

I've written reviews of each article to share what I like best, what you can get from reading the article, or what may be missing in the article.


How To Find A Topic: Click on the Tags tab above, and then click on one of the tags. All the articles on that topic will appear.


I may occassionally review an article that I think is problematic as a way to educate us all, although most I will simply pass over.  If you wonder if I've seen an article that is not included here, send me a message and I'll respond.

After doing biz story work for over a decade (and with a PhD in Folklore) I hope you find many great insights and tips here. Many thanks for visiting and enjoy the articles!


And I hope you will also visit my website for more tips and tools, & take the free Story IQ assessment so you can see how well developed your storytelling skills and knowledge is:  ;
