Storytelling brands: Jaeger's illustrious 130-year heritage

This is the second instalment in my series of posts looking at brands that use storytelling as part of their marketing activities.

I won’t bore you with my full definition of what I think storytelling should mean in a marketing context, but suffice to say that I think it should be used to describe authentic content that reveals something interesting and truthful about the business, such as the origins of its products or a look inside the company culture.

Sony’s approach to putting storytelling first

For the last few years Sony has been working harder to improve the way it engages with its audience using storytelling techniques

Tim Lion is the European head of social media at Sony and during his talk at last week’s Festival of Marketing he admitted that it would be “a fallacy to suggest that what they were doing was a roaring success”.

However finding the right tone and content to connect with an audience is a lengthy process that takes a great deal of trial and error, especially if you’re a brand that’s just used to broadcasting technical specs for the last 70 years to an incumbent audience.

Things are improving though, and Lion’s social team seems to be learning from its mistakes.

And apologies for the tired old phrase, but has content you’ve produced gone viral?

At Wednesday’s Festival of Marketing, the CMA explored the issue during a session on shareable content: how to make your content travel further.

I was joined on the stage by Kim Townend, formerly of Gov.UK, and Bob Fear from Virgin to discuss the recipe for share-worthy content.

Everybody talks about the need to provide quality content on your site if you want to rank well in searches. But how do search engines identify quality content?

Successive Google algorithm updates (culminating in the recent Panda 4.1) aim to refine results so that they match the intent of the search query and deliver the most comprehensive, accessible and well-written answer.
