Howard Lake | 7 April 2013 | News Winning the Story Wars: Why Those Who Tell and Live the Best Stories Will Rule the Future [amzn_product_post]Does your brand tell a story? In “Winning the Story Wars,” globally recognized storyteller, designer and entrepreneur Jonah Sachs argues that only those brands that tell “values-driven stories” through the “right” channels will revolutionize marketing. Above that, they may become humanity’s greatest hope for the future. It’s no surprise that most of today’s marketing messages are swallowed up in a flood of noise the minute they hit the market, with thousands of ads and emails hitting each recipient on a weekly basis. And those recipients, empowered by social media tools and on-demand viewing, will ignore you in favor of something they’d prefer to seek out themselves. Sachs cites a quote from the former advertising chief at Macy’s and Citigroup to emphasize this point: “The irony is that while there have never been more ways to reach consumers, it’s never been harder to connect with consumers.” Advertisement About Howard Lake Howard Lake is a digital fundraising entrepreneur.
