CRAFTING HAPPILY EVER AFTERS – Telling Brand Stories that Come to Life

March 16 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm


Telling Brand Stories that Come to Life
Hugo Pérez, Content Strategist, Local Boy Productions

Brand stories are now being told simultaneously, sequentially, and can be related or unrelated. A cohesive 360-view of content storytelling is required for success, releasing brands from traditional boundaries and enabling them to stay top of mind with today’s consumer. The most effective content storytelling weaves together a “common thread” of core components that broaden the knowledge of the brand, drive action, elicit emotion, and encourage recommendation.


Participants in this session will come away with…

An understanding of the crucial components in brand content storytelling
An effective way to uncover the main idea behind any brand story
A guide to mapping out the visuals that will bring stories to life
