Here’s the second part of my interview with storyteller Dave Bricker. We talked about the four elements of a story, the difference between anecdotes and stories, and how to add value to people’s lives through storytelling.
In our conversation, we also covered:
- Whether people are hardwired to want to hear depressing stories or happy stories
- The difference between happy endings and transformation and how that affects how stories connect with people
- A much more effective alternative to scare tactics in advertising
- Why children love reading storybooks over and over…and over…and over…
- Where most advertising falls short and how to improve
- How the most powerful stories speak to our innate drive to seek safety and survival
- How authentic conflict brings depth to a story
- How, in advertising, money must serve not as an outcome, but rather as a tool
- Using audio to prime an audience
- Different types of coaches and which audiences they’re best suited for
