3 Types of Business Stories that Appeal to Millennials

If you're looking to increase your business sales among Millennials improving your storytelling is a good start. Telling your story effectively imparts a more human side to your business. It's also memorable and develops an emotional connection between your business and your audience.

Most sales gurus will admit it's the emotional side of the brain that drives purchasing, so storytelling gets your business where you want to be.

Effective Types of Storytelling for Gen Y

The following types of stories will improve your connection to Gen Y but they should never be used disingenuously. Use what fits your business. Don't alter your story just to get likes or shares, or customers.

Saving the World

Compared to their cynical Gen X predecessors, at least 39% of Gen Ys polled believe they will do something in their lifetimes that will contribute to the world becoming a better place. Telling a story of how your business connects others and helps them help the world will appeal to this generation.

However, if you're going to flavor your business story with a saving the world tone, make sure you tell it by how you are helping your customers do it not by you own super powers. Taking a more humble approach will attract this tech-savvy generation. Boldly making heroic claims will turn these uber-eager world chasers off.
