Tips and tools to supercharge your stories


Who doesn't love a good story?  We’ve talked about this here. But did you know you can boost the effectiveness of your stories when they’re told in the format of a case study?

A case study is a special type of narrative that features a real-world problem, solution, and benefits – while including factual evidence and facts.

Because they’re authentic and unique, case studies are a super-powerful way to help tell your story, educate and engage, build momentum without the ‘hard sell’, and garner untold trust.

Your case study should:

Make your customer the hero. Use your brand and project as the supporting character. The whole point is to illustrate how your project looks in action, and how it gets results.

Make your hero relatable. Interview real, live people and share the story in their words.

Show don’t tell. Rather than saying your project is amazing, prove it using data and anecdotes.

Let your hero tell it in their own words. This makes for a better story and a stronger recommendation.

Use strong visuals. Even the best-written content is more engaging with pictures and this makes case studies far more powerful than using data alone.

The following tools and tips will help you to write killer case studies that have maximum impact for your project.
