Create shareable content: 5 Hollywood storytelling tips
“Emotional storytelling is the best way to truly connect with your audiences,” says Brandon Daniels, currently a motor oils product manager at Marathon Petroleum.

He speaks from experience. Daniels previously worked as a spokesperson and social media manager at Marathon, where he was heavily involved in video production and multimedia project development.

“People laugh and cry when they watch movies, because they identify with heroes on the screen and get to go on a journey,” he said in a recent Ragan workshop. “So we always made sure to apply Hollywood storytelling norms when we created our best videos.”

Here’s his advice for matching the film industry standard—along with insights from an actual Hollywood inside...

3. MARCH 16th - 3-Hour Online Workshop: “THE WHAT THE HELL APPROACH TO JOB SEARCH” - $80
Many job seekers take a passive approach to their job search that invariably includes several hours a day sitting behind their computer answering online ads. This often doesn’t create a lot of positive progress, particularly when you are 1 of 200 respondents to an ad. That’s why an effective job search requires a “what the hell do you have to lose” attitude that creates more interest, more activity and more interviews. This also includes a bold, proactive “marketing” campaign where you are packaging your background, constructing the right messaging and engaging your audience. This small group workshop will be led by NSENG Founder, Marty Gilbert, and will focus on 13 somewhat “unorthodox” actions you can take to stand out from the crowd of numerous qualified candidates. His novel "What the Hell" approach was recently awarded a trademark from the US Patent Dept.
