#1: Set The Parameters

Your business story should be engaging. Establish context right off the bat. To start your brand story, answer the following questions:

  • Who is telling the story?
  • Why is the story being told?
  • When and where is the story taking place?
  • Who are the people in the story?
  • What are the people trying to achieve?
  • What challenges are faced?

Most importantly, establish why you’re telling them this story. This will guide the audience through the narrative and hook them all the way to the end.

#2: Be Authentic

Authentic storytelling is key to gaining consumer trust:

  • Don’t try to fool your audience with an over-the-top tale. Customers know when you try to pull a fast one on them, and they don’t appreciate it.
  • Your business’s story doesn’t need to be elaborate. A genuine narrative is more likely to connect with consumers than one without a shred of truth.
  • Your customers should know about the Mission and Vision of your company.

Transparency celebrates your uniqueness and acknowledges the human aspect of your brand.

#3: Have A Clear Outcome

A great business story leaves your audience with something. What lesson was learned in the story, and what should consumers learn from hearing it?

The story gives an idea of who you are and where you come from. The outcome sparks confidence in our offerings and values. You can use your business’s real-life outcomes to convey a message to your customers.

Business stories should have a clear outcome. Provide a hopeful, thought-provoking message with actionable points that compel your audience to connect with your brand.

#4: Be Consistent

A disorganized brand story leaves customers confused and uninterested:

  • Make sure your brand is consistent across all communication channels.
  • Use the same colors, logo, and slogan for digital and print marketing materials.
  • You need to be consistent when speaking about your brand. Business storytelling takes practice. Know the story inside and out before presenting it to customers. This will help you tell the story naturally.

#5: Get Customers Involved

Use business storytelling to strike an emotional connection with customers:

  • Talk about how an event related to your business affected you and what you learned. This creates an immediate response that makes your story memorable and shareable.
  • People like to be a part of stories. Your customers can be characters in your brand. Come up with ways to get your audience involved.
  • Telling the story of your brand is an ongoing process. Each day, your business grows, shifts, and adds new chapters to its story.

Make business storytelling an essential part of your operations to attract and retain customers.
