Use Storytelling Structure to Bring Your Brand to Life

Throughout the millennia, stories have followed one formula or another. But it's only in the last 100+ years that we've started putting names to them: Hero's Journey, Freytag Pyramid, and so on. But these formulas have told some of the greatest stories in history. And as marketers, you can put them to work for you. This session will teach you the basics of storytelling, examine several storytelling structures, and show you how to apply them to your own brand and content marketing.

You will learn:
