It’s Time to Approach your audience Differently

Consumers are inundated with as many as 10,000 marketing messages every single day, so they’re highly selective about what messages they listen to.

 

To get their attention, you’ll need a unique, authentic message that shows you understand them and their needs. Enter: the power of story.

why story?

Stories are one of the most powerful forces on the planet to shift mindset, beliefs and behavior. 

Stories are Memorable

  • According to psychologist Jerome Bruner, facts are 20 times more likely to be remembered if they’re part of a story.

Stories are Influential

  • Audiences are known to shift behaviors and attitudes when they see a relatable character making the same change.

Stories Create Connection

  • Stories create an emotional connection between the storyteller and story listener that facts and figures never will.
