“We should run a contest to get more likes! Launch is tomorrow!” ((Sigh.)) Do you despair when your boss thinks about putting together a contest in a matter of minutes? Or when your colleague craves more likes without any strategy? Every social media…
Is is easy to run a sweepstakes or contest? Well, it's easy to build an app. But if you want to real advantage of your effort, you need to know what you do.

Telling a story creates an experience. If you provide your audience with a remarkable experience, this is something your competition cannot steal from you. On the other hand, if all you provide your visitors is a commodity; eventually somebody else will produce that commodity cheaper and faster. As a matter of a fact, +Neal Schaffer here is a post I wrote https://plus.google.com/+KristofferHowes/posts/QsXTP7NeaP6 using a story to convey that very message. :-)

I recently leased a new car from Thomas Acura, and all I can say is that the experience was a most pleasant one. I never felt pressured, felt that all of my requests were met, and Fernando was one of the best car dealer salesperson I have ever engaged with. It was worth the drive out from Irvine to Covina, so if you live in Southern California, give Fernando a call - and tell him Neal sent 'ya ;-)
