So… What’s Your Story?
“Marketing is no longer about the stuff that you make, but about the stories that you tell.” ~Seth Godin
Since the beginning of humanity people have been telling stories. And a good story with characters and a premise will stand the test of time. Brands that master the art of storytelling establish deeper connections and loyalty with their target audience- leading to an effortless sale.
Don’t know where to start?
Forget B2B or Business to Consumer- think human to human.
You can easily begin to create your brand story by:
• Putting a face to your company
• Increasing transparency and sharing your progress (Give your audience an inside look at your company)
• Have a clear vision of your company mission and share what motivates you and your team to come to work each day
• Tell your audience about how your company came to be
