“As human beings, we hunger for stories. And yet, most of us are slow to adopt storytelling as a brand strategy.

“We’ve gotten stuck in the last century of marketing tradition, pushing people to buy what we’re selling with broadcasting. So, how do we learn to create connection with story? To invite customers to see the world the way we do? To build a community around our vision?

“In today’s episode, Dominic discusses the growing importance of story in marketing, explaining how social media affords us the opportunity to respond to ads and how storytelling invites us to buy into a community—not just buy a product.

“He shares the strategy he used to develop his own brand narrative and describes why values are an integral part of storytelling.

“Listen in for Dominic’s insight around creating connection with an audience and learn to externalize your own stories and lean into the ones that support your vision!”
