Digital Storytelling Round-up: Psychology of sharing, story cycle and visual stories

Welcome to our weekly storytelling round-up. After our story-geddon series finishes in December (catch the fourth post in the series here), we'll pick up sharing this content again in our regular email which you can subscribe to here and never miss a beat.

In this roundup, we share excellent content with you that we found around the web in the prior week, on the topic of business storytelling - or subjects in very close orbit.

Onehttp://www.thedrum.com/opinion/2017/11/02/i-share-therefore-i-am-what-content-marketers-need-know-about-the-culture-sharing

I love this piece! It talks about the psychology of sharing in the context of "compete to win" western culture. It's fascinating read that is useful for marketers and interesting because of how it refers to us sharing content that feeds into how we want the world to percieve us. Very thoughtful piece.

Twohttps://businessofstory.com/the-story-cycle-a-simple-10-step-storytelling-process-to-create-abundance-in-your-business/

This is a nice simple, useful structure. I would note that it is one of the seven main types of story (hero's journey). There is much more to storytelling, and storytelling in business. Still, the piece remains practical, useful and interesting.

Threehttps://www.ishmaelscorner.com/10-visual-storytelling-examples-that-boost-the-narrative/

Ishmael posts many useful things. This is slightly abstracted and I have to wonder if it is an experiment. He talks about using his blog for experimentation. The core point still stands: use visuals to help bring the narrative you are sharing to life.
