There are so many reasons brand storytelling is valuable to your business. Sarah outlines six of these reasons in episode 41 of the Marketing With Empathy podcast. Quick factoids you can bring up at work in this short, info-packed episode. 


  1. People are craving human connections.
  2. Ad blocking is on the rise.
  3. People have attention issues, but don’t have issues when it comes to quality content they want to consume, and even binge.
  4. What happens in an internet minute? i.e. what is your target customer distracted by ever minute? what are you competing with?
  5. Storytelling content drives actions, and Stanford study insights about stories being 22x more memorable than facts and figures alone.
  6. Your competition is investing in content.
  7. Why Sarah believes brands are the new editor-in-chief, and how they can use their scale to build customer trust and loyalty through storytelling.
