SHINING A BRIGHT LIGHT ON YOUR NEEDS TODAY THROUGH STORYBRAND

The global pandemic has shined a bright light on the need to provide new ways of doing business.

We need to continually work to address the immediate marketing and communication challenges created by COVID-19, which is far from over. However, now is the time to start planning and do. It would be best if you thought big about investing in new media and social media communication platforms. This action will not only pull you out of the current business recession but propel your company forward, creating opportunities for new clients and your business’ wellbeing. Strategizing and planning for what you can control and manage is the best way to set your company up for success.

To accomplish this, we must expand the toolbox available to you for your StoryBrand. We must look to the rudiments of human experience. This type of StoryBrand content brings the human stories to life. “We, as a species, are addicted to story. Even when the body goes to sleep, the mind stays up all night, telling itself stories,” states Jonathan Gottschall, in his landmark book The Storytelling Animal: How Stories Make Us Human.

Another authoritative writer James Wallis puts it this way, “Human beings like stories. Our brains have a natural affinity not only for enjoying narratives and learning from them but also for creating them. In the same way that your mind sees an abstract pattern and resolves it into a face, your imagination sees a pattern of events and resolves it into a story.”

In his book, Gottschall presents conclusions from neuroscience studies. Through Brain scans, Gottschall reported that when our minds experience stories, they light up like the individual is experiencing the action and feelings directly instead of indirectly. We listeners and viewers empathize with the personalities instead of sympathizing because we feel what they are going through. When your brand connects with the story, the individual is immersed in a narrative (either fiction or nonfiction). This process is what we call suspended disbelief. The world around you drops away, and you are suddenly transported into the details and feelings of the story at hand.

Our entire species is hardwired for telling and enjoying stories. During this pandemic, direct human contact is far more limiting; experiencing things through our imaginations is an excellent opportunity to connect in a real and effective way. StoryBrand connects with the audience and builds brand engagement. By creating a more substantial, more earnest presence, you cultivate an audience that will be more receptive to all of your marketing in the now and in the future. When you want to be remembered, motivate your audience, teach about your product or service, or present the ‘good idea,’ start with a story!
