The Power Of Storytelling: Building Fans Is The Future Of Marketing.

CLASSROOM

In the powerful words of Seth Godin, "people do not buy goods and services, they buy relations, stories, and magic." In many ways, as individuals, we are looking for the happy ending to our own story. As brands, we have the opportunity to write that ending. Attention is the most valuable attribute of every brand but the most difficult to acquire and maintain. Jake and Aaron share how they both used the power of storytelling to cultivate fans and community!
