Why Storytelling Important for Brands?

For brands, storytelling is a crucial tool that taps into the fundamental aspects of human psychology, serving as a powerful means to connect with audiences on a deeper level. Just like traditional stories, brand narratives can reflect universal themes and emotions, helping consumers understand and relate to the brand's values and purpose. Through storytelling, brands can convey their unique identity, ethos, and values, fostering a sense of empathy and emotional engagement with their audience. This approach not only entertains and informs but also creates a strong sense of identity and community around the brand, playing a significant role in shaping its image and establishing a lasting connection with consumers.


Storytelling with ChatGpt

Storytelling is a key skill for content creators and marketers, as it helps connect with audiences and make brands memorable. ChatGPT, a tool created by OpenAI, is changing the way stories are told. It's great at creating engaging and creative stories. However, to get the best out of ChatGPT, it's important to give it good prompts. The quality of the stories ChatGPT generates depends a lot on how well the prompts are crafted. So, while ChatGPT is a powerful tool for storytelling, using it effectively means learning how to provide clear and detailed prompts. Let's explore how you can use ChatGPT to enhance your storytelling efforts.


Steps to Storytelling with AI

1. Knowing the Brand

The initial step involves a deep dive into understanding your brand's unique characteristics and the perception you aim to establish in the minds of consumers. This process begins with an in-depth knowledge of your brand's essence. This foundational knowledge is essential, as it lays the groundwork for the next steps in your strategy.

2. Determining Archetype

In this step, we will utilize a book called “The Seven Basic Plots” to determine an archetype for our story that resonates with the brand. This book is significant because it offers a universal framework for understanding the fundamental structures and psychological aspects of storytelling, relevant across various cultures and historical contexts. It is also popular and influental. Here are the seven plots that can be implemented into stories:

You can check the "The Plots" of the book and the “Plot Descriptionsat this link to define what is suitable for your brand.


If you're interested in using ChatGPT to identify the suitable storytelling plot for your brand, simply tell the brand and ask for the appropriate plot, specifying that the response should align with the framework presented in 'The Seven Basic Plots' book.

3. Prompting to ChatGpt

This is the last part you should consider. After understanding the brand deeply and determining the plot, it is time to prompt those informations accurately to ChatGpt in order to get great results. So, here is the prompt format that can help to create stories:

"Craft one engaging marketing stories for [use case (could be product video as an example)], a company in the [type of company], by employing the [Plot Name] plot structure from 'The Seven Basic Plots' book. These stories should be tailored to appeal to [target people’s character (brave people as an example)], and must adhere to the narrative principles outlined in the book. For each story, include the following key elements:

  1. Title: Assign a distinctive and memorable title to each story.

  2. Characters: Develop characters that are both relatable to your audience and reflective of the brand’s ethos.

  3. Plot Synopsis: Offer a brief yet captivating summary of the story, ensuring it follows the selected plot structure.

  4. Conflict: Clearly define the central conflict in each story, showcasing its relevance to the brand and audience.

  5. Cultural Connection: Make sure the stories resonate culturally with the target audience, aligning with their values and experiences.

  6. Resolution: Describe how the conflict is resolved in a manner that highlights the brand’s value or solution.

  7. Emotional Appeal: Infuse each narrative with emotions designed to connect deeply with the audience and evoke the desired response.
