Brilliant Blogger of the Week:

Social Media Has Evolved Into The Art of Storytelling, And We All Must Become Masters Of It. by Lauren Fisher

Writes Lauren, “Social media is now at the stage in which we are all becoming expert storytellers, often without knowing it, and developing the skills to tell those stories effectively.” Whether you’re using social media to promote your online content or your business, telling stories is necessary for building your brand online. What I like most about Lauren’s post is that she goes beyond just talking about how important it is to tell your story. She also talks about the importance of the visual story. Check out the full post on Simply Zesty, then follow Lauren on Twitter at @laurenfisher.

    Hi Allison, thanks for compiling this list. This is a topic I follow and have researched. Don’t know if I’m in the brilliant blogger catagory, but I recently wrote this post you are welcome to pass along: How one story endured for decades and made $2 billion http://wp.me/p2fKwR-4u

  6. Kevin Allison of The RISK! Podcast has a storytelling school. He has gotten so many requests for “storytelling for business” that he has started a whole class focused just on that. It’s still pretty new, but if someone really wants to dig in and learn how to tell stories that sell, they might want to look into Kevin Allison’s program.
    He’s a super nice guy, has built a real storytelling empire and I know he’s very excited about this new course.
