No one trusts advertising anymore. So how do we share our message? The answer is Storytelling. And this is the formula!

You may have noticed a move away from glossy and glamourous advertising to brands telling more stories.

Sometimes those stories are about where they came from. Other times they are the stories of their customers.

This move towards storytelling is based around a very human tendency to trust others who both have the credibility and the empathy to really connect with us.

But what is the structure of a business story? How do we put it into our advertising, our websites, our social media and our everyday interactions with customers?

In this interactive webinar where we will use real examples around those who are in attendance, you will learn:

  1. The reason why online advertising is broken
  2. How features and benefits are not enough
  3. What the ABT storytelling method is and how to use it online and in the real world
  4. How to apply the ABT method to your own business

This workshop is brought to you by Business Station and AusIndustry under the Digital Solutions Program.
