Our story marketing process

We use story science to create your brand story

We define and craft your brand story as a guiding narrative for all your external and internal communications, using proven story frameworks. We then review your marketing materials to make sure they are reflecting the new brand story and using story structure for best results.

We then optimise your website for lead generation

Once we have developed a clear brand story, we work with you to create a high-converting website. We also establish your customer personas, map out the buyer journey, and then create all the content elements (eBooks, videos, digital & social ads etc) needed for your marketing.

We develop a marketing plan & promote your story

Finally, we develop a 12-month content marketing plan - outlining what traditional and digital media channels you should use to promote your brand story. We constantly test the effectiveness of each marketing channel and messaging and keep optimising both to maximise results.

The biggest marketing challenge today is getting time-strapped, information overloaded consumers to pay attention to your message. The answer lies in storytelling – the most powerful form of communication known to man.

In Story IQ’s informative new eBook for business brands we talk about the cognitive science behind storytelling, and share practical tips on how to use story-driven content marketing as a strategic business tool to spark conversations, increase emotional engagement and generate sales leads.
