Digital storytelling: How brands can power imaginative content
Mon 30 January 2017, 10:00 – 17:00 GMT
Brands have fast evolved from service and product suppliers to becoming thought leaders and publishers in their own right.
How could you, as a communicator, business owner or PR pro, craft compelling content across web, social and video that will position a company as a go-to source for insight?
And how can you keep this editorial, infuse "personality" and flavour into the tone and still be... on-brand?
In this fast-paced, interactive one-day course, let one of Britain's most highly-rated brand storytellers take you through the seven steps that will leave you feeling charged up and confident about how to do this.
The trainer, Shivvy Jervis, is one of the UK's top creatives. Shivvy is also head of digital content for the innovation arm of tech giant Telefonica, for whom she has created original and editorially-led online content that is regularly cited by the industry as best-in-class.
This intensive workshop will provide communications and PR specialists (in-house or agency), business owners, start-up founders, freelance corporate writers and content managers with realistic tips, tricks and case studies to go on and apply in their own environment.
To ensure all delegates leave full of ideas and know-how, group sizes are limited – so book now to avoid missing out.
As with all Journalism.co.uk courses, the training will focus on the latest tools and techniques with an emphasis on practical, hands-on learning.
Tea, coffee and danish pastries plus a sandwich buffet lunch are included.
What will the course cover?
The value of brand-agnostic content for your target audience
Thinking like a 'creative storyteller' not just a marketer
Learning to craft editorial content (even without a journalistic background)
Striking a balance: Work out how far your client or company can go "off-brand" and still maintain house style.
You've got the ideas, now what? How to keep stakeholders happy and get buy in.
The channel mix: What content works best for web, social or video?
Don't be a brand spammer! Learn what audiences see as "poor content".
Case studies - brands that are getting it right (and wrong!)
