What: This is a no-brainer. Your company should know about the products or services that you sell.
How: This is a broader question. These are the things that make your brand special or set you apart from the competition.

Storytelling marketing is not new. Telling a story is a powerful way to build relationships with your customers. It’s an age-old concept that brings people together and keeps them engaged. Many successful brands use a hero to push the company story. A great example of this is Subway utilizing Jared: a man who lost over 200 pounds while living on a diet of Subway.
