4 Reasons a Compelling Brand Story Will Make You a Better Marketer
Your brand story is one of the most important elements of your overall brand and marketing strategy. Today, the web makes it easier than ever for people to instantly find (and sometimes buy) what they are looking for with a simple Google search or scroll of a LinkedIn feed. Social media and other marketing tools has also made it easier for brands to inject themselves in the conversation with sponsored Facebook posts/ads, paid search ads, influencers, etc.
But even with all of those great opportunities marketers are awarded, none of it is going to resonate with your audience if your messaging is all out of whack or all over the board.
In today’s super automated, technology driven, tactical marketing world, one element that is still innately human is the story that we, as marketers, work to tell each and every day. Brands can’t afford to be a faceless entity anymore. We have to connect with our audience in a more meaningful way.
Your brand story is the thing that will connect with your audience and make you stand out from the crowd.
Here are four reasons why a compelling brand story will make you a better marketer.
Your message will get more clear to your target audience
Marketing is all about your message. When you have a clear brand story that you want to tell, your messaging will in turn become more aligned and integrated with your story.
It gives you permission to be yourself
When you get really clear on who you are and what you do, what your brand story is, you’re also giving yourself permission to live it to the fullest. You can be unique and attract people that your story resonates with that want to do business with you.
You’ll connect with your audience a lot earlier
People connect with stories. People connect best with stories that are relevant to their challenges and their needs. A brand story that is related to solving the challenge (or “pain”) that your audience has will enable them to relate with your brand on a deeper level.
Your differentiators will become more apparent
With a consistent brand story your differentiators will be consistently be communicated to your audience, making them more noticeable and distinguished from that of the competition. By calling out your differentiators your audience will see the unique value that you offer.
Tell Your Brand Story
A clear, consistent, and compelling brand story is so important. Your brand story should be communicated through every channel you use, from your sales team and their presentations and proposals, to your website and digital marketing channels, and the way your team interacts with customers or clients.
