Narrative Strategy: From “Communication Big Idea”, to Pillars and Touchpoints Experience

In this learning experience, we will link the Brand Positioning with the Narrative Strategy. It has the critical role to deploy the intended brand into the right consumer space, through well-articulated experiences.


1. Recap Brand Architecture:

The architecture shows the way a brand connects with the outside world through a mix of performance and promises. We will highlight how the leading brands are built through a clear ambition, values, beliefs, benefits, arguments, personality, and design elements. In successful cases, a brand becomes a magnetic artifact, able to attract a loyal “tribe” of customers

2. Intended target group:

3. Narrative Strategy – transforms Positioning into “Communication Big Idea”, Communication pillars and touchpoints experience:

  • Communication Archetypes: the mix of pure symbols  
  • Communication Big Idea: the organizing narrative umbrella. 
  • Communication Pillars
  • Narrative Arcs and Touchpoints Experience
  • We will discuss various examples and will dive into Red Bull and James Bond cases.

Limitation note:

We will highlight the best in class models, which are notorious and successful. Our objective is to study the pre-eminent examples. In communication usually, the best practices come from storytelling industries (like Hollywood) or from FMCG or Service companies. These entities put a huge effort in developing their communication and interaction with their clients and later became a competitive advantage. B2B Organisations usually fail in this aspect, lacking a proper communication focus, at least from the time being. Second, our objective is to learn new ideas, not to solve specific business issues.
