Social media, whitepapers, blogs, webinars, apps, news - it is information overload. Storytelling is an effective way to cut through some of this clutter and rise to the top. Never underestimate the power of a good story; it has the ability to evoke a personal and emotional connection between the audience and a brand. And as more brands make the move towards content marketing, connecting with your audience through compelling stories is more important than ever. Check out these infographics on storytelling and maybe learn a thing or two!

#1: Storytelling is Not Just for Campfires by NCM Fathom
  • Believe it or not, storytelling can increase revenue. It puts the audience at ease with the brand and engages them with the human side.
  • Companies can utilize stories to dramatize and embellish their company message to make it exciting. The best part is that it is not a dry data dump that overwhelms your audience. 
  • The key to good storytelling is to ensure that your audience does not feel sold, but instead feels led down a path that allows them to make the right decision.

#2: The Science of Storytelling by one spot
  • 92% of consumers want brands to made ads that feel like a story. As a result, you should deliver content that is linear and expresses a clear narrative.
  • Humans process images 60x faster than words. Therefore you should show, not tell. Use images for more compelling content.
  • When processing facts, two areas of the brain are activated. A well-told story can engage many additional areas, including the motor cortex, sensory cortex and frontal cortex.

#3: Cut Through B2B Information Overload with Effective Storytelling by LookBookHQ and Beutler Ink
  • Press releases that contain multimedia get 77% more responses as opposed to text-only releases. Furthermore, blog posts with videos are linked to 3x more than text-only posts. 
  • No one reads anymore. 79% of people scan the web rather than reading word for word. To counteract this, make sure your message doesn't get skimmed. Frame it as a story with a captivating opening to hook readers. 
  • Lastly, marketing is noisy. It is estimated that people see up to 5,000 marketing messages per day. The solution is simple - your story, told by you.
