Branding through storytelling: A how to
Storytelling is something that comes naturally to people; we engage with others using a narrative structure, so why should your brand story be any different? When people hear or see a story they are drawn in by a few key factors:
When you are telling your brand story you need to own the adversities that your business has faced, and let your genuine personality shine through. A brand story is not a marketing leaflet, and it’s not an ad. It’s a genuine story about your brand and business, and done right it will attract people to your business.
For example, if your business got off the ground after you saw a problem in the market and wanted to fill it – share this with people. Explain that you had the same challenges they did and wanted to create a solution to make life easier/cheaper/more enjoyable. If you struggled for a few years, share this! If you had a couple of false starts, share this! That’s the conflict part. Then, shine through with the solution: Your product/service/business. Explain how you came to this particular option and why you chose to run with it. Then, of course, bring it all together with the success of where you are today and how you’re continuing to work towards improving your service for your customers.
Branding through storytelling: Answering the ‘why should I care’ question
When a person reads about your product or business they are undoubtedly going to be doing two or three things at once. They might be at work and reading an email, in the doctor’s office thinking about the school run and waiting to see their GP, or any number of things. They won’t care about what you have to say unless it’s compelling and engaging. So when you are creating your brand story, whether you’re using the medium of blog post, video, Instagram story, photo montage, or live action screenplay, make sure you are constantly thinking: why should someone care about this? That way you won’t get bogged down in ideas that might not shine and you’ll be left with the best ideas.
