We are great Storytellers. Everything we do in events or media highlight our client’s stories, but the key in telling your story is being Authentic.
Now, in the age of content, social media and endless outlets for expression, times have changed. The opportunity brought on by more meaningful storytelling also presents a new challenge. With nearly three quarters of company executives saying that they will be engaging in more content and storytelling, more companies risk making the mistake of not being true to themselves and their brand.
Consumers expect traditional marketing to be a glossier representation of the brands they buy. “It’s a commercial, of course they are saying they’re great,” is often a consumer attitude. Yet this opportunity is very different when you engage in a more relationship-building storytelling approach. The audience be it external or internal demands a deeper level of authenticity. The fact is that we live in an age of authenticity and you can’t embrace storytelling without embracing the necessary honesty that goes along with it. Harnessing the power of story requires an “all in” approach, celebrating the good and at the very least, not ignoring the bad.
But this isn’t all doom and gloom. It’s quite the opposite. The beautiful thing about storytelling is that, while it has the ability to enrich and engage your audience like never before, it also has the ability to change your organization in a profound way – from the inside out. Embracing and being honest in your journey to make them better certainly provides the unique experience of allowing your customers to journey with you, learning together, as you move towards making a difference in the way you do business. They will reward you for your authenticity with their loyalty. But even more so, it allows your internal audience, the people who give their lives to your organization, to see a picture of your organization that looks less like a faceless corporation and a whole lot more like a real community. If done right, you’ll achieve that connection.
We cover all aspects of video and media production.
When we bought MediaCraft in 2008, we aimed to expand our capabilities and further our expertise in having a media company dedicated to telling our client’s stories whether it was for their brand to a consumer audience or their internal audience.
The acquisition gave us state of the art edit suites, equipment and personnel dedicated to telling our clients’ stories.
