What is brand story?

It’s not enough to tell your customer what you do. If you’re not connecting with your customer on a deeper level, you will lose sales. A way to connect meaningfully with your customer is through your brand story.

A story can be broken up into five parts. There is a character (1) who has a problem (2), then meets an advisor (3), who helps them solve that problem (4) and reach their happy ending (5). From a business perspective, the character is your customer (1). Your customers have some type of problem (2) and are coming to your business, the advisor (3) for help. As a business, you over them a solution (4) that helps them achieve their happy ending (5).

Why Should We Care About Brand Story As A Durham Company?

Humans respond to and invest in stories because we care about what happens to the character after they’ve faced a challenge. We want to know how they got to the happy ending because that’s fundamentally what we want in life, right? A happy ending. Additionally, our brains are wired to understand stories because they put information in an order that is easy to engage with. Consequentially, Durham Businesses that understand how to craft their brand story have a leg up on their competitors because they are able to connect with their customers in a way their competitors can’t.
