The art of storytelling has held a prominent place in our culture for thousands of years. In fact, the storyteller often held a place of high honor in many communities. So it’s no wonder that storytelling has maintained a strong foothold in modern life as we know it.
A story can take on many different forms. From a song on the radio or a painting to a blockbuster movie. No matter what form your story takes, you’ll be sure to have a captive audience as every individual may perceive the same story in a different way or view it in a different light. This is precisely why storytelling is a valuable asset to your branding and marketing strategy.
So, Give Us a Story, Love…
Tell a story. Show us that you’re real, that you have feelings. Show us that you’re human. Be a storyteller and engage your customers like the humans that they are. Being human tends to go over much better than being a cold robot.
Too many brands have traded their true humanity for a little airtime. While trading something valuable for something even more valuable tends to make a great story it doesn’t always make for great branding.
Whether you’re a small business with five employees or a large national corporation, the art of storytelling is a valuable addition to your brand.
