Storytelling is primal.
As humans evolved, night time storytelling around the fire pit became ingrained in human communication as did scratching out drawings of animals on cave walls.
As marketers and conversion optimizers, storytelling is a key weapon in your communication arsenal. Take a look at the infographic below and glean some tips on how to improve the way you communicate with your prospects and customers.
For tens of thousands of years, humans have found meaning through the creation and interpretation of symbols. Those symbols can take many forms: words, sounds, events, numbers, and images, to name a few. But just as beauty is in the eye of the beholder, a symbol only carries whatever meaning a person assigns it. In that sense, almost anything can be a symbol—as long as someone interprets it as signifying something beyond its literal definition.
Symbols have long been the cornerstones of visual storytelling, and for years, storytellers have relied on them to illustrate unspoken feelings, forecast future events, and set an overall tone within their works. And symbolism plays as critical a role in modern content creation as it did in classic literature. Symbols can be used to visually develop plot, theme, and character to a deeper level than mere words can achieve.

The creation of mobile devices has made multitasking close to ubiquitous in the modern world. Between social media, live streaming, and digital news, it’s hard to imagine a time of day when we aren’t tempted to look at a screen while we’re doing something else at the same time.
Because of this phenomenon, it should come to no surprise that the average human attention span has fallen to just eight seconds — shorter than that of a goldfish.
What’s more, 59% of people share articles on Twitter without even reading them, and more than half of all pageviews are under a minute in length. It’s clear that people aren’t reading as much as they used to, and content creators need to adapt their strategy to that reality.
In this post, we’ll discuss strategies and resources marketers can use to create content that will generate clicks, shares, and most importantly, more readers.
That’s it for this week… Happy reading !
