Jessica Gioglio, co-author of The Laws of Brand Storytelling, joins the Social Pros Podcast to discuss the need for and evolution of brand storytelling.

Brand Storytelling Is About the People

It is not uncommon to hear the term “brand storytelling” used in discussions about social media and content marketing. Most businesses are coming to understand that storytelling is one of the most powerful ways to capture the attention of potential customers.
Telling interesting and original stories may feel daunting, especially if your business is a B2B company. Remember, though, that businesses are made up of people, and people have stories! Whether you are selling directly to customers or to other businesses, you are connecting people to people.
In the words of Jessica Gioglio, author of The Laws of Brand Storytelling, you have to approach this as a journalist. The most unique and interesting thing about your business is the people who comprise it. By tapping into their experiences, you can find truly special and inspiring stories that show your customers who you are and keep them engaged!

In This Episode

  • Why storytelling has become more than just advertising.
  • Why storytelling isn’t just for B2C.
  • How influencer marketing has affected the way businesses tell stories.
  • Why your strategy shouldn’t center around a single platform or channel.
  • Why your reactive and proactive social channels should be consistent.
  • How to balance your internal culture with the various cultures of your customers in storytelling.
  • How to adapt successful practices without copying other brands.
