Storytelling and Integrated Marketing and Communications

Storytelling is imperative if you want to build an enduring brand for your college or university. 

The truth is, we could all be better at articulating who we are, what we’ve experienced, and why it matters. In order to tell better stories, institutions must first develop a true understanding of and empathy for target audiences, clarify brand messaging, and then develop staffing and skill sets to infuse storytelling into robust integrated marketing campaigns.

The digital space allows storytellers to immerse audiences even more fully in our stories with the opportunity to integrate and weave video, photography, user-generated content, and other rich media throughout the marketing campaign.

Are your readers at the heart of your institution's story?
