Strengthen your Brand with Storytelling


When you share true stories about your brand, products, or services, you can take your audience on a journey that they will crave to experience.


Recently, I was in Vienna, Austria exploring and enjoying the city to the fullest - food, culture, history and all!


Across from the famous Vienna State Opera house, every day, all throughout the day, there was a long line to get into a small Café. Never in my life had I see people waiting that long to get into a specific café when there were hundreds of others nearby. This is what first caught my attention. Curious as ever, I went closer to the Café to learn a little bit more. This beautiful café was called Café Sacher and I had to know more. I next read their brand story.


Instantly, after reading their story, I knew I had to have one of their famous Original Sacher-Tortes. Not only was their story compelling enough to get me inside, but the Torte, atmosphere, and decor were also worth every bit of waiting in that long line. The Original Sacher-Torte is the world’s most famous chocolate cake with a recipe that has remained a well-kept secret since 1832.


Their story set the tone and it was truly one of the best cakes I ever had. This delicious Torte met all my expectations and blended perfectly with their story. Your story should be part of your brand - the very reason why your business was created. Stories must be personal, authentic, creative and inspirational for consumers to form a connection with your brand and company.


Every businesses story and history is different, but how you tell your story is what makes a consumer want to do business with your brand.


Whether your story is short, long, old or new --
stories are captivating for a reason. Be proud and
start telling your brand's story!
