The Power of Storytelling in Marketing 

Why Your Brand Needs a Compelling Narrative

In a world where attention spans are short and competition is fierce, it’s becoming increasingly challenging for brands to stand out. So, what’s the solution? Enter storytelling in marketing – a powerful marketing strategy that has the potential to captivate audiences and leave a lasting impression.

Why Storytelling Works

Storytelling is indispensable in effective marketing because it humanizes brands, making them more relatable and memorable to consumers. In an interview with Franchise Wire, Lauren Moore, BizCom’s Vice President of Client Relations, says, “telling stories about people, like the leadership team, franchisees, employees, and customers, is an intriguing and engaging way to show what a brand is all about. When you think about it, everyone loves a great story, and every brand has them.”

Ultimately, storytelling is about creating meaningful experiences that inspire, connect, and resonate with consumers on a deeper level, driving long-term brand engagement and loyalty.

Multiple Ways for Successful Brand Storytelling

BizCom’s mission statement conveys our team’s passion for storytelling: to share the world’s most inspiring stories. Here are just a few examples of how we have helped clients break through the noise to engage with their target audience by using storytelling.

Celebrating Love

During Valentine’s Day this year, BizCom capitalized on the story of high school sweethearts Stephanie Forsythe and Trevor Bernhardt in Avon, Indiana to win publicity for our client Orange Leaf Frozen Yogurt. Their relationship began in 2013 when they worked part-time at an Orange Leaf Frozen Yogurt store. In 2019, they purchased the store and got married. In 2021, they bought a second location and expanded their marketing efforts. Now, at 27, they’re veterans in the Orange Leaf franchise network, celebrating their first store’s fifth anniversary. Their unique love/business won the brand feature coverage in WRTV-TV and WISH-TV, among other outlets.

Community Engagement

Another example is our collaboration with the Credit Union of Texas (CUTX) Event Center. When CUTX acquired a new ice-resurfacing machine, they wanted to remind fans of the variety of events the center hosts. BizCom Design created a playful, colorful wrap featuring the mascots of the professional hockey and soccer teams, along with hidden Easter eggs representing concerts, graduations, and community activities that are held at the event center. The debut during an Allen Americans hockey game was a hit, especially among young fans. You can read more about this project here.

Getting it on Camera

Video continues to be one of our most powerful tools for storytelling. In a recent Q&A with Dan Wiley, Brand J’s Director of Video, he shares, “the most successful videos that we produce have been our mini documentaries, which capture the inspiring stories of real people who partnered with a brand and have found success through hard work and close relationships with their franchisor and fellow franchisees. Entrepreneurs connect with these stories on a human level. They come to see the brand as a legacy, not just a business.”
