Businesses Storytelling [Infographic]

Here’s an interesting infographic from Fathom on the power of storytelling that I wanted to share.

A great reminder that the creation of valuable, compelling stories on a consistent basis can maintain or change the behavior of your target audience. Content marketing.

Great stuff!

    Gebardi brand…An example of great storytelling with a startup brand. In 11 months, the brand went from serving 1 store to just under 50 stores with no outside representation, no ad agency, no print or broadcast advertising…just word of mouth. The company story is carried out not only on the website, but also in Facebook and on product packaging. The story is also told at product demos…where people come and fall in love with the brand.

    Excellent post – the graphic really hammered home the points of storytelling in an imaginative and memorable way. What is your favorite post that tells a “campfire” story?

    Really nice job. It’s a great message for PR types, marketing folks, and CEO’s alike.

    Storytelling builds a genuine connection, and that’s something all businesses should embrace.
