We don't suck

Hopewell and Prince George County continue to prove people wrong.

If you read our newsletters, you are no stranger to positive stories about Hopewell/Prince George County. As we go about our normal routine of visiting people in and out of the area, we relish the opportunity to tell people about all the great things going on in both localities. Since our office is inside the area Visitor Center, we get to spread the good news to loads of people passing through, as well. Often, we're met with "I had no idea", or "I thought it would never happen." Well, if you enjoy positive news as much as we do, read on, friend. Read on.

Pro tip #41: Tell a Good Story

 

We live in a media saturated era. Standing out as a business is harder than ever. In a not-so-distant past, you could sell domain names by having a race car driver pretend to take her clothes off. Today, it's not that easy. Consumers are inundated with advertising media all day every day. Consumers are harder to reach, more fickle, and they have seen just about everything before. That's why you need a good story. Don't use gimmicks and tricks. Don't copy what everyone else is doing. Instead, try crafting your company's unique, authentic, and relevant story. What is it that sets you apart from the competition? Think your company doesn't have a good story? Think again. Check out these five tips from Forbes on business storytelling.
