The Essence of Narrative Storytelling

Narrative storytelling is a powerful way of captivating an audience. Narrative storytelling is an art form, weaving together characters, conflict and resolution to engage and relate to the viewer. In marketing, this allows you communicate not just the spec sheet for your product or service, but the real customer pain point and the impact that your solution provides.

  • Memorability: A good story is unforgettable. Narrative storytelling will ensure that your video marketing hits home and your brand message remains on the mind of viewers for a long time.
  • Differentiation: In a saturated market, narrative storytelling offers a way for your brand to stand out from the crowd.

Incorporating Narrative Storytelling in Your Video Marketing

  • Know Your Audience: For any story to be impactful it needs to resonate with the intended audience. Start by thinking about what your intended audience already engages with and figure out why.
  • Define Your Core Message: What is the key takeaway you want your audience to have? Your narrative should be built around that message.
  • Build Relatable Characters: Characters are the heart of your story. Create characters that your audience identifies with.
  • Create Conflict and Resolution: Conflict introduces tension and interest in your story and the resolution brings satisfaction. This should reflect the customer's conflict of the pain point they have and the resolution of them adopting your solution.
  • Leverage Visuals and Sound: The power of video lies in its visuals and to enhance storytelling. Use this strength to compliment your narrative and evoke emotion.
