Why Your Business Needs A Digital Story & 10 Ways To Tell It

Why Your Business Needs A Digital Story & 10 Ways To Tell It

A powerful way to communicate more deeply about your business, stand out, and be recognizable online is by using storytelling as the vehicle to carry your message.

Every type of business has the opportunity to practice and apply business storytelling, but the majority aren't taking advantage of it simply because they aren't aware of it.

They aren't aware because they're busy running their businesses, and business storytelling is a relatively new concept.

Most businesses share what's on the surface with their business and post on social media to remind their followers they exist. This means they're either not telling a story at all or they're telling the wrong one.

But what if businesses used social media as more than a way to merely show they exist? What if they raised the bar and got more intentional with their messaging so they could rise above the noise, connect on a deeper level with their current customers, and potentially drive new customers their way?

In other words, what if businesses gave people a reason to attend to the information they're putting out there? This is totally possible through business storytelling!

"In a world where people have a lot of choices, the story may be the deciding factor." ~ Nick Morgan

5 Thriving Online Businesses Inspired By Personal Passions

5 Thriving Online Businesses Inspired By Personal Passions

One of the reasons I created a blog to encourage others to pursue their best ideas or personal passions is because I am so intrigued about how modern technology opens infinite doors for those who have entrepreneurial ideas while removing old, outdated barriers of entry and reducing risk!

We now live in a time where we can build an online platform to get our personal message out there, attract those who are searching for our message and get compensated for work that's authentic to who we are.

But getting your mind around the opportunities now available requires you to suspend your old beliefs about what was required in the past to have a chance at success-- things like advanced educational degrees, knowing the right person, or a large sum of money. All of these are no longer necessary to achieve great success.

Today, you can "Choose Yourself," as well-known blogger James Altucher is famous for saying, instead of waiting or hoping someone will choose (hire) you.

Success in this new paradigm of business involves consistently providing value to solve your community's problems.

No doubt about it-- a shot at online entrepreneurship is yours for the taking, but because this is all so new and unless you've been keeping up with sources that educate how many are creating their own online businesses inspired by personal passions, you may not be aware of all the creative ways people are designing multiple-income-stream businesses.
