The art of story telling in brand positioning

The art of story telling in brand positioning

Life is about telling a story. It is about creating a story. It is about taking the bull by the horns and living like there is no tomorrow. Even when life slows down, when children take a chunk of your patience and when time seems limited, life is there to be loved. Love your children, your family, your friends, work and colleagues and tell the stories of how each and every one brings out the best in you.

Your life is your brand. And you can direct it in in any way you see fit to deliver your personal message.

The art of brand positioning

I was reminded of this recently when I saw the new Nutri-Grain advert. I was attracted to the ad because I love Nutri-Grain. I could eat this honey-coated cereal for breakfast, lunch and dinner. I’d have some weight issues and perhaps a sugar addiction if I did so: there are some dreams that may never be fulfilled.

Nutri-Grain or Kellogg’s isn’t the first brand to utilise personal, inspiring stories to reflect their brand proposition. Red Bull has been doing it for years. They are focused on delivering inspiring, real-life stories. They do this through the depiction of athletes and events across skiing, motorsports, skateboarding and adventure sports. They are appealing to a demographic, with no need to mention their own brand.

Adventure is their brand.

Be unstoppable

Now Kellogg’s has followed suit with their Unstoppable campaign. “Derek Rabelo was born blind. But it never stopped him learning to surf. And it never stopped him from taking on Hawaii’s biggest waves. At just 22, he surfs professionally. But why stop there? Derek is now surfing a board with four wheels and taking on competitive downhill skateboarding.”

It is inspired material. An inspiring story. And Nutri-Grain has more to come.

This type of content journalism is what makes the world go round these days. Brand positioning is about telling a story. Telling inspiring stories. Telling stories that meet audience expectations. No ads required. Let people’s experiences do the branding for you.

For those of who grew up watching Nutri-Grain ads, we know they are associated with ironman like feats and with the sun and sand sprints. 

With their unstoppable campaign, they have taken their message one step further. They are now telling a story.

So what is your message? How would you like to reflect your brand? What stories do you wish to tell?
