The psychology and art of storytelling

Adverts and content – a lot of people are like:

bored

Or

bored

Because the advertisers, the adverts, the “content marketers” just don’t get it.

We get the huge flux around the Superbowl and Christmas for example, some good, some bad, but the majority of the year adverts and content are created without persona development, identification or psychological targeting.

When we see an advert or content we should be like:

Interested

It should make us:

Laugh

Or

Cry

Or

Think

I suppose it could even be:

Scary

If this was the right message for the target audience.

The story of the advert and content needs to evoke an emotion, a reaction and compel the prospect to take action.

In the UK, we used to have the running story line in adverts with Nescafe and BT but this concept is no longer adopted.

It is imperative to develop a deep understanding of the target audience for any story.

If it is a television advert, a YouTube advert, a short promotional video, a blog, an interactive piece of content – whatever the production, it needs to have a clear target.

Or inevitably it will:

bomb

There are many ways to tell a story and to engage an audience. Visual, as this blog post is trying to be, with some images and some humour.

Know the audience – it is imperative to undertake research and create a strategic approach:

look harder

Then, you can get all creative, target the audience with a message and content type you know will work and they will be all:

Happy

You’ll be in the:

Money

And all:

Excited

Because you:

Understand

Nearly the end…

No Gif post is complete without an obligatory:

cute cat

So this is:

The End

For now 😉
