  • Dont be afraid to tell your story as a work in progress.

    Start with the essence of your brand.Then build a story around why this is important to people.

    Keep in mind whats interesting to each individual consumer.

    A well-told brand story should encompass stories of many unique individuals, not one archetypal consumer.

    Dissect other brand stories that you like. Then discern what it is that you like about them. Chances are you like a brands story because you identify with it. Who else identifies with similar ideas as you?

    Decide why it is important to tell this brand story. There are a million brands out there with similar stories. Whats special about this one?

    Refining your brand should always be a work in progress, therefore telling the brands story should be a reflection of this.
