Human beings are hardwired for stories.

Storytelling opens up neural pathways in the brain that excite us, make us feel, and help us retain information. In fact, people are 22 times more likely to remember information that’s presented as a story rather than merely factually.

It’s why crafting a compelling brand story can be so powerful. When done right, your brand’s story engages your most important customers emotionally, developing invaluable brand loyalty and trust in the process.

Of course, it’s a lot easier said than done. So many brands think they can slap some contrived, half-baked story on their website and call it a day, but they couldn’t be more wrong. Telling your brand’s story is an ongoing, always evolving project, one that extends to branding, packaging, and even customer experience.

In this episode, we learn more about these ideas from one of the best – SnackNation SVP of Customer Strategy Chelsie Rae Lee.  

Chelsie breaks down the ins and outs of crafting your own compelling brand story, as well as the opportunities most brands miss when it comes to communicating this story to their most important customers and prospects.
