No matter where you are in your business, hiring a marketing consultant to conduct analytics, to evaluate your current strategy, to help you set new goals, to devise new plans, to help you better reach existing audiences, and to reach new audiences (among other things) will have immeasurable benefits.
Conferences are great opportunities for professionals in a field to get together, talk shop, and network. They’re also a great opportunity to inspire professionals with new ideas and to hype them up about their professions and their future. To have a conference that is guaranteed to achieve this level of success, you need to hire a storyteller. Storytellers motivate, inspire, and educate your audience and are essential to making your conference one that attendees want to attend year after year.
Storyteller marketing is an essential marketing strategy in which you use stories to capture your audience’s attention, to engage their senses on multiple levels, and to become memorable to your audience. Marketers who aren’t using stories aren’t forging deep, meaningful, emotional connections with their audiences, and in the vast sea of options, of content, and of distractions, they’re losing their audiences, possibly forever.
How well do you know your audience? A common mistake is assuming you are your audience when in fact, you’re not. Even if you are a person who’d buy what you’re selling, you have to remember that your motives and your audiences differ and that you need to look outside of yourself and get to know your ideal, target audience to not only tell better stories but also to make conversions.
Anyone who watched 30 Rock will remember Liz Lemon (Tina Fey) constantly trying to “have it all.” When you work from home with your baby, that’s essentially what you’re doing—trying to have it all. If working from home while raising your children is a goal, that’s great! Go for it. Here, The Storyteller Agency’s managing editor weighs on what it’s like to work from home with pint-size bosses running the show and real-talks on how she plans the day so actual work gets done.
In theory, blogging is easy. You just write content that reflects your brand that satisfies your audience’s needs as said needs pertain to your brand. Easy-peasy-bloggy-squeezy. The problem comes when—because it’s “easy”—you don’t write or you don’t write on a schedule and then your posts are all over the place in terms of tone, timing, and focus…if, that is, you get around to writing them at all.
Hashtags (#) are symbols used to categorize content on the web. Using hashtags for categorization started on Twitter and quickly spread to other platforms; however, how, where, and why to use hashtags on the various platforms varies.
As we look back in preparation to move forward, we at The Storyteller Agency feel compelled to highlight a handful of blog posts that we consider the “best of 2018”. Why are these blogs the best? Because they cover content and give helpful information to brands that is still highly relevant even as we head into the new terrain that is 2019.
Though it’s 2019, we’re still reeling from the great 2018 we just had. We at The Storyteller Agency had a pretty amazing year, and we owe it all to our incredible, giving clients, all of whom who work hard to make the world and their communities a better place.

2019 was upon us before we could pop that bottle of champagne and hum the chorus of “Auld Lang Syne”. For brands and digital marketers, this means a shift toward an increasingly technological yet also human and responsive approach to content marketing. Here’s what we mean by that.
