The Power of Brand Storytelling with Mark Evans
“For fast-growing companies, marketing powered by storytelling is a recipe for marketing success.” — Mark Evans
In this podcast session, I had the opportunity to speak with Mark Evans about brand storytelling, which is the topic of his latest book Marketing Spark. Specifically, how marketers and business leaders can ignite their marketing by embracing the power of storytelling to produce better results.
For those not familiar with Mark, he is a marketing consultant, entrepreneur, and writer who has been telling stories for more than 25 years. He makes marketing work for fast-growing companies...and for companies that are looking to grow faster. Mark has helped more than 100 companies with marketing that accelerated their growth.
Before starting his business, ME Consulting, in 2008, Mark was an award-winning technology journalist with the National Post, Globe & Mail, Bloomberg News and South China Post. At the height of the dot-com boom (in hindsight, not the best timing!), he co-founded a startup, Blanketware, that plunged Mark head-first into the world of entrepreneurship. With a passion and fascination for startups, Mark went on to work for three of them: b5media, PlanetEye and Sysomos.
Mark writes a blog (www.markevans.ca/blog) about marketing and produces one of Canada’s most popular newsletters for entrepreneurs and marketers. He speaks frequently and offers workshops about marketing strategy, messaging and storytelling.
When Mark manages to tear himself away from the keyboard, he is an avid ice hockey and tennis player, craft beer aficionado and intrepid traveller. Mark, his wife, Pamela, their three children and their dog Max, live in Toronto, Canada.
