How To Portray An Effective Brand Story

Every business has competitors. No business will ever be the only option available to a client or customer. So every brand has to do some work to differentiate themselves from the competition. Why would someone pick you over that other guy or gal down the street? What unique value are you bringing to the table that they just can’t get with anyone else?

This is where storytelling comes in. Sure, there are a number of businesses out there that could theoretically solve your prospect’s problem. But by crafting a compelling brand story, you can differentiate yourself as the brand that understands the problem the best and has the most thoughtful solution to the issue.

There are five key elements to any effective brand story. Here, we’ll share the tips you need to create a statement that sets your business apart.

The New SEO- Useful Content

A great SEO strategy has a lot of moving parts. For small business owners, it can be difficult to keep pace with the ever-changing elements that go into optimizing your content for search engines. After all, Google alone uses hundreds of metrics to rank pages for search results, and they keep those metrics (and how exactly they’re weighted and used) under tight wraps.

So if you’re already busy running a business and don’t have time to stay up to date on all the ins and outs of SEO, we have a shortcut for you. Focus on producing useful content, and in the process you’ll check off a lot of SEO boxes.

Who Is The Real Hero?

Some time ago, I posted a poll on my social media page asking business owners “Who is the hero of your business? You or your customer?” It surprised me that half of those who participated did not vouch for the latter.

For the longest time, we’ve been so accustomed to seeing “About Us” sections on websites reading things like “our company has been the industry’s pioneer,” or “we are committed to providing only the best,” or “our product solves problems and reduces costs.” Although there may be truth to all these, shining the spot light on your company instead of your customers is a huge mistake.
