Regardless of culture or upbringing, stories have a way of appealing to people regardless of their background. Stories are used in all cultures and have been since as far back as people started telling stories about stories. But that is true, and of course leave it to marketers to swipe that idea and use it in marketing. Not that many people in Internet marketing, believe it or not, use stories to their advantage. Maybe that is due to the fact that you have to write in order to tell a story, in general. Try it out! Almost anyone can write some type of story. You need to give it a try, at least just once.
As far as Internet marketers go, some of them are pretty to the power of storytelling, and others are not at all. In fact, I would say that a high percentage are not aware of what can be done with good stories. Specific areas of marketing such as pre-selling is where storytelling should be used. Your marketing strategy should never be fixated on one particular technique. Keep that in mind at all times. You need to make your point by making an actual story, not something that seems to be sales copy trying to sell something. Although you never really know why a particular story works, just weave your pre-selling and marketing into the copy itself. It is not important to overly impress everyone that reads the content that you write. But you should develop a comfort with the willingness to write forcefully and with power. You might want to consider that your writing voice may not allow you to express yourself in a manner.
Expressing their words with power and conviction is something that many people simply cannot do. Sometimes the way you express yourself in your writing has to do with a personal choice. People relate to the emotions that they feel and so many ways that are similar to others. You need to be able to match what you are writing with the audience, and also related to your own style of written expression.
When you write, whatever it is, you need to make sure that your captive audience is not falling asleep in the middle of what you are saying. Your emotions, and your opinions, should be expressed in some of the things you write to your audience. What you write needs to not only keep them awake, but keep them alert and wanting more. It is important to also use your feelings and words at a certain tempo. Whatever you write, make sure it is full of ups and downs, emotions and concise sentences. A fiery crescendo – that is what you are shooting for, especially by the end of your article. There should be emotion, and closure, once the article is done.
In conclusion, to become a great writer, you need to learn from great writers. You can buy these strategies from those that have had success, tapping into their secrets for a price.
As long as you can handle feedback, criticism and failing time and time again, you will be a candidate for success through constant unending practice. But you must learn a few things that will effectively lower the learning curve.
