Having worked on many famous brands as an advertising executive, Jim Signorelli has found that today, in order for advertising to be truly effective, the brand being promoted must work the way a good story works. Many brands continue to get in their own way with an over-reliance on editorialized benefits. “Today, that’s a death-wish,” says Signorelli. “To remain competitive, brands must provide consumers with story themes they can relate to, identify with, and share with their tribes.’”
There are a number of books that discuss the parallels between stories and brands. But until this book, Storybranding was written, few, if any provide practical advice on how to apply story thinking to branding.
