Empathy, Not Facts,

Is the Foundation of a Story Brand That Gets Remembered

 

 

STRATEGY | BRAND STORY DEVELOPMENT

Build a Story Brand that Clarifies Your Message and Connects Emotionally – So More Customers Listen.

To survive in today’s increasingly crowded marketplace, businesses are constantly battling to be seen and heard – you need to stand out! This is where your business’ story comes in. The goal is to tell a story that genuinely appeals to your audience.

So what makes a story genuine and how to tell it?

Let’s start off with what storytelling is not. Storytelling is not about your company’s own name, own products, history, etc. These things typically will not resonate with your audience at face value. And it will not win you the attention of your audience, i.e. visits, views, shares, conversions.

Telling your brand story is more than what you write on your website, blog and social media. Great storytelling starts with empathy and understanding of your customer and how you're solving for their problem. And solving for their problem should ultimately be behind your business purpose (your "why") and is core to your mission and vision.

As we are humans, and not machines, great storytelling involves emotion, creates empathy and typically comprises characters, conflict and resolution. All of which, in turn, has the long-lasting magnetic effect to genuinely connect your audience to your message.
