Stories sell. It’s as simple as that. Research has shown that numbers do not easily stick in the long-term memory of most people. By some estimates, messages delivered as stories can be up to 7X more memorable than facts alone. From London Business School we know that people retain 70% of information through stories, but only 5-10% from facts. The brain processes visuals 60x faster than words. The combination of facts and stories releases strong synergies and puts you in a significantly stronger position, regardless of whether you work with sales, consulting, project management, etc.
“Stories are up to 22 times more memorable than facts alone,” and when stories and data are combined, “it can pull at the audience, both intellectually and emotionally” – Jennifer Aaker (n.d.), a professor of marketing at Stanford Graduate School
