5 great storytelling tips to increase brand awareness

By Patti Doyle on Feb 13, 2019 12:14:11 PM

Not that long ago, or at least it seems, the business of building brand awareness was fairly straightforward. The success of your campaign typically had a lot to do with the size of your budget and the creativity of your marketing team.

Content marketing has disrupted everything. Small companies, and even individual bloggers, are generating brand awareness among their target audiences at a degree that can surpass those built through multimillion-dollar marketing initiatives.

That type of success requires a deep understanding of your customers, and what they want at every stage of their experience with you — whether it’s getting more information, buying a product or service to solve a problem, or simply being entertained.

Apple Unveils New iPhone 6 – Did They Get It Right?

Smart phones. They’re essentially handheld computers with a wireless plan. Gadget enthusiasts are constantly debating which one is preferable. If you’re in the market for a smart phone, chances are you’re choosing between two archrivals: Apple and Samsung.

These two companies own a combined 2/3 of the market. While Samsung has led in worldwide sales, Apple’s iPhone manages to top Samsung within the US. While Apple started out as the dominant player, the tables have turned and, in many ways, it’s Apple’s turn to play catch up.

If we have to declare a winner, it comes down to which aspects matter most to customers. And that’s exactly what Vennli is all about – making strategic decisions based on customer needs.
