What’s your audience getting out of your content?
Welcome to the Sociology of Business. The Sociology of Business offers a paid membership program. Paid options are for the members of this community who want to be the first to access everything from Web3 brand-building to the new business models and emerging creative formats. Since its inception, the Sociology of Business has been the source code for many other analyses, strategies and brand-building approaches. Members will now have the front-row seat. If you are not yet subscribed, join the community by subscribing below and joining the Sociology of Business Discord. You can find my book, The Business of Aspiration on Amazon and you can find me on Instagram and Twitter. For those new here, in my last analysis, Retail after the website, I wrote about the new e-commerce blueprint that looks like a digital mall.
When telling stories, brands aim for the mass audience. In their narrative strategy, they also consider mostly what they want to say and how. Motivations and goals of the audience (what the audience wants to get out of the story) are often hidden behind its demographics.
Audience motivations and goals are critical when defining a story’s unique selling proposition. Seemingly homogenous audience often has different goals when engaging with content, and often different motivations for doing so (some are looking to learn, others to be entertained, yet others to have material that powers their social connection with others).
Here is the approach that ensures that the same story addresses multiple motivational scenarios. To access it, please select one of the paid options below.
