Brands Are Stories. Tell Yours Well.

With all the hoopla about data these days, we seem to be forgetting one thing.

Brands are stories.  

Successful brands tell their story well.

A well-told story gets shared.  That’s viral advertising.

A well-told story gets remembered.  That’s branding.

A well-told story gets a smile, a laugh, a nod of recognition from the listener.  That’s direct response.

Brands are stories.  Everything else is about how the story is distributed.

Today, the ad industry is 99% about distribution.

And, 1% about story.

End of story.

End of advertising.
