9 Creative Storytelling Methods

9 Creative Storytelling Methods | Intelligent Communications | Scoop.it

When an author set out to tell a story in years past, he or she typically did so on paper, a typewriter or by typing at a computer.But today, storytellers find imaginative ways to share their ideas with interactive and visual elements. On modern mediums like Twitter, Vine, YouTube and other mobile applications, storytellers are crafting tales in ways that would have been unfathomable a decade ago.


Offline, too, authors have begun rethinking the traditional concept of the book in ways both innovative and unorthodox. Might a story be better understood as a set of machine parts? How might destroying a book actually bring its messages to life?Here are nine ways authors are revolutionizing the way stories are told....

Storytellers are deconstructing books and getting innovative -- both online and offline.

Story-telling is one of the most effective tricks for attracting an audience. It makes your content more interesting, and effective. This holds true not only for those in content marketing but also for instructors and educators. Educators could make boring content more interesting by telling their students the story of the topic. Tell your students the story of the formal letter, or the story of the classified advertisement rather than just move on with the formats!

7 Simple Steps That Will Help You Tell a Story About Your Business - DIY Marketers | Intelligent Communications | Scoop.it

Business storytelling is becoming more and more important this year.  You are constantly telling stories about your business. Whether that story is told in a speech, in ordinary conversation with co-workers or customers, or on your website or advertising or packaging, your story is aligned with the public face of your company and it must be carefully crafted from your DNA.


So, once you have a clearly delineated DNA, you need to start to create business stories that embody that DNA. Here is a proven system you might employ. And of course, you can also invent your own methodology for business storytelling if you prefer.


The key thing is not mine vs. yours, but to understand your Brand DNA and then systematically tell your brand story in a way that helps disseminate the message of your brand....

The Four Truths of the Storyteller

The Four Truths of the Storyteller | Intelligent Communications | Scoop.it

I'm in the business of creating compelling stories. As a filmmaker, I need to understand how stories touch audiences—why one story is an instantly appealing box office success while another fails miserably to connect. I’ve been fortunate enough to work with some of the world’s most talented storytellers—gifted directors, novelists, screenwriters, actors, and other producers—and from them I’ve gleaned insights into the alchemy of great stories. Make no mistake, a hit movie is still an elusive target, and I’ve had my share of flops. But experience has at least provided me with a clear sense of the essential elements of a story and how to tap into its power.


The power of storytelling is also central to my work as a business executive and entrepreneur. Over the years, I’ve learned that the ability to articulate your story or that of your company is crucial in almost every phase of enterprise management. It works all along the business food chain: A great salesperson knows how to tell a story in which the product is the hero. A successful line manager can rally the team to extraordinary efforts through a story that shows how short-term sacrifice leads to long-term success. An effective CEO uses an emotional narrative about the company’s mission to attract investors and partners, to set lofty goals, and to inspire employees.


Sometimes, a well-crafted story can even transform a seemingly hopeless situation into an unexpected triumph....
