Humans have been sharing stories for as long as there have been humans. Stories are a natural, effective way to not only convey important information, but also to inform, educate, and both build and strengthen social bonds.
Since informing, educating, and building bonds happen to all be excellent ways to gain and retain customers - smart, successful businesses are usually good storytellers. What’s your story? Are you able to communicate it effectively to prospects and customers?
With the volume of content available on any given topic, consumers are necessarily choosy. They don’t want sales-speak, they want to learn enough to make the right decision. They want answers, insight, and perspective. Your content (your story) has to speak to your audience and convey the message that your firm and your offerings are worthy of consideration.
Your story can (and should) take many forms. Case studies are certainly an obvious way to share a story. But blog posts, thought-leadership pieces, press releases, and even email campaigns when combined with a compelling landing page, can be effective storytellers. While the tone of voice and style will vary to fit the medium, you’ll want to keep the messaging consistent to reinforce your brand.
