    How can Storytelling help you come closer to your clients?

    Although Storytelling has been present since the times of our greatest ancestors, it has nowadays had a new renaissance because of trademarks.

    Storytelling consists of telling a story related to your company or product that generates an emotional connection with your clients. It triggers a positive emotion that inspires people to take action.

    “The audience does not come to your concert because of the pieces you play, but for the emotions you make them feel and the meaning it has for them to be part of your experience”

    What advantages does storytelling have?

    Inspires trustworthiness: Telling details always transmit more trustworthiness. Take it as an opportunity to tell your audience how you started and the problems you have overcome until today. 

    Easy to remember: It is very easy to remember a story, especially if you manage to empathize and make people feel identified. 

    Provides context: when you provide context it is easier to imagine a story in your head and everything will make more sense.

    We love stories: Of course we love stories, we don’t want to hear boring data, we want to feel emotions.

    Creates a better connection: It creates a special bonding, as the message directly aims at your emotions.
