How to write a letter to the editor

How to write a letter to the editor | Green Party US | Scoop.it

Mainstream media is doing an impressive job of keeping Jill Stein, Cheri Honkala, and the Green New Deal out of the news, but we refuse to let them silence us. We will make the people’s voice heard in 2012!

Story Worldwide's Storytelling Matrix - Brand Building Model

Story Worldwide's Storytelling Matrix - Brand Building Model | Green Party US | Scoop.it

"This excellent video by Story Worldwide has been featured on Brand Stories for a while now. Not sure if you’ve seen it? If you haven’t, it’s definitely worth your time."

 

Now here is a very articulate and clear model for brand storytelling. There are 3 axis and the short video explains how to read the model. From there you can easily figure out where you are, and where you want to go.

 

Nicely done!

 

And thanks to Omar Kattan of Brand Stories @BrandStoriesNet for sharing this material on his website Brand Stories and then sharing it on LinkedIn in the Brand Stories Group.

Social Persuasion: How to Move People to Action | Social Media Examiner

Social Persuasion: How to Move People to Action  | Social Media Examiner | Green Party US | Scoop.it
Social Media Marketing Podcast 008: In this episode Derek Halpern talks about how the power of persuasion moves people to action.

 

No doubt about it -- the toughest part in crafting effective business stories is the ending.

 

In other words -- your key message along with the words and phrases you use at the end to move people to action. That is the point of business stories, isn't it?

 

We all need help with this and it is not all that easy to do. So while this article and podcast doesn't have stories or storytelling in its title or text, it is undeniably about business narratives -- and how to have them work for you.

 

Just keep it authentic folks. It is easy to turn storytelling into manipulation. It's a fine line to walk. So pay attention to that dynamic and keep trying to do your best.

 

Read this post, listen to the podcast, and keep mastering how to (authentically) move people to action with your stories.

Strategic Story and The Storytelling Leader

Strategic Story and The Storytelling Leader | Green Party US | Scoop.it

"Because of my 10-years of involvement with Storytelling, I have had great opportunities to learn more about the engaging concepts of story, how to construct them, and how to deliver them."

 

The author, Jeff Brunson, is married to Becky Brunson who is the Program Administrator for the International Storytelling Center. Here he writes a delightful piece with gold nuggets at the end. His insights toward the bottom of his article are a perfect counterpoint to the article I just curated on how to persuade people to take action with your stories: http://www.scoop.it/t/just-story-it?q=examiner 

 

Jim's storytelling principles are at the heart of effective business storytelling:

The Story Is Told for Another The Story is Toid In Search of a Truth The Story is Told Because you Care for the Hearer

 

Now what would happen if our business storytelling, brand stories, and marketing stories not only moved people to action, but met these criteria also? 

 

Well, for one -- you'd avoid all those feelings of manipulation.

And second -- your storytelling would be truly great work

 

For me, these are the business storytelling principles to aspire to! Read both articles and learn the dance of balancing these principles with persuasion / influence.


Thank you Hans Heesterbeek and Gregg Morris for originally finding and sharing this article!
