Review

"It is almost too good to be true that this book has finally been written. Jim Signorelli blends years of wisdom with the magic of story in a format that is so accessible it makes me cry that I didn't have it twenty years ago"
--Annette Simmons, Best selling author of Whoever Tells the Best Story Wins and The Story Factor


"I've done the science research to establish why stories are so powerful for human communications. Jim's book is an excellent practical guide to how you effectively use them."
--Kendall Haven, Story Strategist/Author/Master Storyteller


"Jim Signorelli masterfully decodes brand storytelling without ever going astray from the business conversation. Therein lies his genius. He remains grounded in a story we can all relate to: delivering a functional framework for how brands can speak truth. An essential must read.
--Michael Margolis, president, Get Storied; author of Believe Me


All marketers should read Jim's book, especially those who haven't embraced storytelling. It not only drives home the efficacy of storytelling, but also offers a road map for leveraging this tool to uniquely communicate the human essence of a brand. Thought provoking and useful book."
--Dennis Dunlap, CEO, American Marketing Association


" We all use stories to communicate with each other--families, friends, or business associates. Jim has captured the essence of how to tell a good story that not only resonates with the listener but drives home the message in a clear and concise fashion."

From the Author

I've always had a passion for advertising. My favorite class in grade school was 'show and tell.' As a paperboy, I would add subscribers by copy testing leaflets ("If you buy from me, I promise not to throw your paper in the bushes," out pulled "You need the news, I need the money.")

After receiving both a B.A. and M.A. in advertising from Michigan State University, I started my adult career in advertising in nearby Chicago. I later worked in New York, Los Angeles and Baltimore amassing experience on a wide variety of major accounts like Citibank, Kraft Foods, Burger King, General Electric, Toshiba, Arby's and many others.

In 1999 I started my own agency back in Chicago that today goes by the name esw StoryLab. Our agency has been named to the Inc. 5000 list of fastest growing independent companies in the U.S., three years straight. In that time I became a story buff, as I set out to understand why stories are so powerful and how advertising can benefit from the way they are structured. My soon-to-be published book, StoryBranding: Creating Stand Out Brands Through the Power of Story is the culmination of three years of research on the subject.

When I'm not working or telling a story, I am an avid golfer, tennis player, drummer. And my weirdness finds its expression in a prized Pez collection. I live with my lovely wife Joan in Evanston, Illinois.

Format: Hardcover
As a non-marketing professional, StoryBranding provides a fresh and practical look at what most people already subconsciously know. That is, we as consumers naturally gravitate to Brands whose story resonates with us. Jim Signorelli's awareness into the relationship and interactions of consumers and brands is laid bare and the book is written in a way to evoke any reader to gain additional insights into how to better position and market their brand.

Whilst working with companies in understanding why their plans are not going as they thought, you often see and hear the passion they have for their story, yet the story has not come through in the way they are projecting to the market. StoryBranding offers a structured approach to fully understand what your story is and how to combine it into a cohesive plan. Whether you are a marketing guru at a multinational HQ or a small business owner, the action plan still works.

StoryBranding however is not all about you. It also discusses the need to understand your consumer and what their Truths are. Once you establish a resonance with their truth, resistance to the brand is reduced. The book is a great tool to have in your marketing bag and I recommend it for anyone wanting to build their brand into something real.

Last year I attended a conference by Don Miller called Storyline. It was all about writing the story of your life before you live it, not when it's too late to change anything. The idea of writing a great story and living it out really appeals to me. As much as I liked the idea of writing a story with my life, I also wondered where business figures into it. I know that the source of my income plays into my story in a big way, but is it possible to write the story that I want my business ventures to live out as their own story?

Turns out there is a way to do this. I recently started reading a book called StoryBranding by Jim Signorelli. It's all about telling stories through your business and telling a story with your business. Your own personal story is rather easy. After all, you're the main character and everyone else is only supporting cast. With a business, even your own, It is the main character and You are part of the supporting cast. Each individual part of your business plays a role in its story, from customer service to the bookkeepers. Even your customers will p ay roles, sometimes even pivotal ones, so be sure how you both select and treat them.

So far though, I've only spoken of story. There's also the devotion to branding that exists as well. After all, that is the purpose of the story, to create a brand that stands out.

The book is very good from several points of view. Of course, there's the business side of things, which is amply discussed. Then there's also the storytelling view of things. We are all storytellers, even if we do not realize it. Our lives tell a story. We relate stories to family and friends every day. It's interesting to understand the business side of that function.

If you're pressed for time in this 140 character attention based economy, and looking for the short story review, I offer you this.

Storytelling is surely one of the top buzzwords in the business and personal lexicon today. There are many good books on story and storytelling and just as many on branding. (I haven't read them all but I'm working on it.) StoryBranding is the only one I've read that breaks down the elements of story and relates them in way that will give you a thorough understanding of how to use them in your business or personal branding efforts. By the time you finish the book you'll have a real understanding of how to use story to make the jump from product and featuritis to a genuine connection with your customers that will go beyond any tricks that your competitors can use to try and lure them away.

If you've been bitten by the storytelling bug but not quite sure what to do or how to proceed, this is the book for you. The chapter on Using Archetypical Analysis is worth the price of admission no matter what your level of story understanding and it will lead you to know both your business and your customers in ways that will benefit you both.

Now for the long form version of the review.

When I was hanging up my C-Suite spikes and reuniting with an interest in the world of narrative and story that had been piqued in the late 60s and early 70s while I was in college, I searched and consumed everything I could find that related to those interests. Just over a year into that search I came across Jim Signorelli. At the time he was close to putting the finishing touches on a book called StorySelling.

What a great read. StoryBranding is a proper method book. Mr. Signorelli has developed a great system that will help you turn your brand into something that will resonate with your clients/customers/audience. There is a lot to take away from the book to put in the review. I don't mind redundancy in the book. It helps hammer his point across pretty well. I found the concepts easy to understand since they are introduced in the very beginning and then explored later in the book.
