Visual Storytelling: Two Brands That Are Doing It Right

Visual content is everything on Social Media. It’s what grabs the attention of your viewer. The key to maintaining an engaging relationship with your online community is through stunning visual storytelling. The images you share should resonate with your audience on a personal level. Here are two brands that are great at sharing thumb-stopping images on social media:

Warby Parker:

As an eyewear company, Warby Parker shares creative images of their products subtly nested in environments that relate to the character or style of certain frames. This particular image conveys a sense of coziness & warmth and instils the need for the same from the eyes of the viewer. The description to the picture talks about a very relatable scenario and sheds more light on the other elements in the picture rather than the product, which shows that the brand focuses more on storytelling rather than pushing for sales.

Moment Lens:

Mobile photography connoisseurs and lens makers, Moment Lens, share images that have been taken by their community using their products on their social media. They use their online platforms, more to share the work of their community, rather than their own, which motivates the audience to post more pictures on to social media using Moment’s products.

Strategy & Tactics: A Tandem Relationship

You’re a budding entrepreneur and you want to start a T-Shirt company. You eventually want to own a clothing line. But hey, almost everyone with a Macbook and a Shopify account has a T-Shirt company. You need to be different. So you build a brand around a story or an “idea”. Your story is “Toronto & Proud”. There’s your strategy.

Now you need it to actually work. You’re going to have to convince millennials that frequent the streets of Queen & King that your brand will help them let the rest of the world know that they’re proud of where they come from. You devise a plan to start a movement. You come up with a really catchy hashtag. Let’s assume “#6ixAndStones” for now. You start sharing faded & high-contrast pictures of people repping your brand doing normal Toronto things. Baseball season is here and you use your growing Social Media influence to get in touch with Josh Donaldson’s people. He loves the idea of wearing your brand for a “close-to-home” Instagram post. Before you know it, people are flocking to your website to get some Toronto-bred swag. There are some tactics.

Strategy and tactics go hand in hand. For any company, big or small, having a clear-cut strategy that helps in achieving its overall goal and purpose is of utmost importance. Tactics are specific short-term methods and best practices that help a company in its strategy.

An organisation’s health and success relies on its members understanding the differences between strategy and tactics and how they work in tandem. According to Jeremiah Owyang, a company should ensure that all implemented tactics align with the company strategy and all the strategies understand the tactics that will help achieve its goals.
