Storytelling Principles

  1. What is the problem?
  2. What is the solution?
  3. What is the outcome?

Let the Brand Journalist tell the story. Don’t try to add your company’s promotional spin.

Think Like a Journalist and find the news hook.

Launch content and time it with conventions, trade shows, and other big events to enhance opportunities for exposure.

Content can’t just entertain. It must convert.

Determine what your purpose is for your content so that you can measure the success of your efforts.

Pick up the telephone and call journalists before sending a press release to try to get your story covered. Most companies don’t call; they only send a poorly written press release which typically results in no exposure.
