Storytelling is Absolutely Essential to Engage or Influence Your Market

Brand storytelling has changed. It used to be that your brand was the hero of your story, and your features and benefits are how it “won”. Not anymore. Now, brand stories need to make your target audience the hero of the story.

The storytelling method even has science to back it up. In a study at Princeton University, scientists found that, when you listen to a well-told story, the parts of your brain that respond are those that would if you were inside the story. Even more impressive: this eff…

Which is More Important Quantity or Quality in the Sales Funnel?

Which is more important, quantity or quality? It seems like everyone has their own opinion about which one is “more” important. I think it’s asking the wrong question and seeks to justify an excuse. Yes, you need quantity because not every prospect is a good fit for your organization and yes, you need quality to ensure that your leads are qualified and likely to convert.

Our client, a 50-year-old membership organization had a small group of members with intense brand loyalty. These members would describe their relationship to the organization as “I owe my whole professional life to them”. There was a bigger group that expressed the sentiment “we know we can depend on you for only this”. These members would come and go based on when they needed one specific service that this organization was really good at.

The Ability of a Brand to Go from Viable to Valuable

MVP. Sounds exciting. You want that title. Right?

Well, unfortunately, I am not going to talk about being the most valuable player. Instead, my thoughts are about a minimal viable product (MVP). I know that is nowhere near as sexy. And as you know, you don't want me talking sports. LOL!

Anyway, I want to draw attention to the words--minimal...viable...product—MINIMAL in particular.

B2B Holiday Marketing: How to be Successful at It

Holiday marketing is often assumed to be only for B2C or D2C brands. After all, it can be up to 30% of their annual sales, according to the National Retail Federation.
