brandstorytelling

The marketing playbook for storytelling

Storytelling is the new marketing. Where storytelling goes beyond online conversations and touches every part of your business, from packaging and distribution to customer care and beyond.

Moving marketing to culture.

Moving from brand-centric to customer-centric. From marketing to customer experience. From head marketing to heart marketing and from story to action. Living the story. It is called culture. Read “Fusion“.

The statistics

Stories are 22 times more memorable than facts alone. The most powerful form of brand storytelling is when customers don’t recognise that they are being marketed to. 75% of consumers are more likely to buy from a brand when they’re recognised, remembered, or served with relevant recommendations. 68% of customers gave more business to companies…

Some very interesting stories and scenarios for the future

More and more companies use science fiction writers to help develop scenarios and strategies for the future. Storytelling helps when you want to engage your staff with thinking about where to go as an organisation. I picked up “Stories from 2045: Artificial intelligence and the future of work – a collection of short stories by the Economic Singularity Club”. What a treat. Should be compulsory reading for every entrepreneur, civil servant and politician.

Some ideas from the book

Allocate voting rights in proportion to the amount of time that residents devoted to civic activities. A circular economy directive A universal respect credit system HELP, Human Elective Leisure Payment. Fiscal Freedom Act encouraged early retirement by abolishing all taxation on property…
