We’re wired to connect and we all have unique stories to share that gives us the opportunity to connect deeply with our communities. Your customers, your suppliers, your team and everyone who makes up your online community want to know and understand what you believe in. They want to know what makes you tick; they want to know what you stand for and what makes you different. Through storytelling, you can share your values and your vision, which will build trust, relationships and attract the right people to your brand.
I see brands publishing generic content every day on social media. Content that doesn’t have a clearly defined purpose and doesn’t highlight their story or what they believe in. Posting generic content day in and day out is boring. Don’t post endless quotes just because they’re easy to curate or dive into a trend simply because everyone else is doing it.
Instead, take the time to publish content that highlights your story, what you believe in and most of all it must be meaningful to your audience and support them in some way. This type of content will allow you to build deeper relationships with your community because you’ll be seen as someone with strong beliefs, a clear vision and values. People will understand what drives you, why you’re passionate about what you do and this type of content will allow you to nurture relationships and build customer loyalty.
