To survive in today’s crowded informational 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 history, nor is it your pitch, tagline or sharing your unique selling proposition. This approach typically will not resonate with your audience. And it will not win you views, shares or conversions.
Telling your brand story is more than what you write on your website, blog and social media. Great storytelling starts with your company’s values and mission – it tells why you’re doing what you’re doing.
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.
Great storytelling is not only an art form, it’s like having your own secret recipe. Generally speaking, the three main ingredients to great stories are Character, Conflict and Resolution.
