Apr 22, 2017

Your customers don’t want to hear about what you make. They want a story about what you make happen. That’s why Robert Rose urges you to transform your marketing department into a storytelling department. Turn your adverbs and adjectives into adventures in your story marketing to move your audiences to action.

Key Quotes:

"Build those strategic initiatives, those platforms that will help you tell your story that delivers value over time and build that audience so that you get the value of all the content you're creating, not just the individual assets that you're creating." - Robert Rose

"I'm a big believer in when people say, 'content is king.' Then I say, 'Storytelling is the kingdom sorcerer,' - because that's where the magic happens." - Park Howell

"It's about helping them understand that there is another world out there for content that can actually be valuable to the customer - that they can tell stories with." - Robert Rose

"Transform it from an approach of describing value to describing an experience with value packed into it." - Park Howell

 "We can put adjectives in front of nouns, and we can talk about synergies, paradigms, and all sorts of stuff that we're good at it. We can do those things well, but the creation of content for value sake for the audience is a different muscle. It's about delivering value in the content." - Robert Rose
