The Power of Storytelling

The landscape of social media has changed dramatically over the last few years. Gone are the days when you could post a meme with a catchy line, and that was all that was needed to build a thriving audience. 

Now, we need to connect on a deeper level with our audience (our potential future customers). We need to connect emotionally and to form a relationship with them. 

One of the best ways to do that is through the power of storytelling. 

Yes, some people have an innate gift for telling a fantastic story and others have to work at it. 

The good news is that we can all learn how to hone our storytelling skills. 

Here are a few resources that I have found and love!
