Back to Basics: Why Brands Are Betting on Stories
There’s nothing like a good story – they delight, captivate and motivate. Sometimes, the best stories not only move us emotionally, but also physically drive us to action (i.e. purchase).
Marketers are embracing storytelling as a way to reach consumers. In fact, when it comes to advertising, 67% of Gen Z want stories. As a result, brands are looking beyond the YouTuber to a different type of influencer: the humble writer – those at the heart of the gripping novel, blockbuster film or emotional ad.
In this session, a writer, a leading brand and Wattpad’s Head of Global Brand Solutions will explore how stories impact brand-building and the social platforms that shape how stories get told.
