Attracting Customers Through Content: How to Tell The Story of Your Company

Katie Wagner of KWSM

It doesn’t matter how sophisticated your lead generation funnel is, if you can’t get customers to engage with the content that gets them into it. Science shows that storytelling actually changes a consumer’s brain chemistry, making them more open to your message. Stories are memorable, drive action, and turn information into value for your prospects. But, how do you tell a good one? Explore what makes a good story and how to craft one, where to find the stories in your business, and how to apply storytelling to digital content: social media, email, landing pages and blogs. You'll be pushed to think outside the box when creating content, look beyond the tech, and tell your company's story in a way that fosters a lasting connection with your audience.

Authentic Stories & Moments that Matter

Rob Pearson of Rareview

While human lives are endlessly variable, our most memorable positive moments are dominated by four elements: elevation, insight, pride, and connection. If we embrace these elements, we can conjure more moments that matter. Many of the defining moments in our lives are the result of accident or luck—but why would we leave our most meaningful, memorable moments to chance when we can create them?
