CoolBrands is about storytelling for brands.
We travel around the world to meet visionary people and brands with a purpose.
We write their stories with a wow-factor and stickiness.
The stories are easy to understand, easy to remember and easy to transmit. Ready for word-of-mouth!
We share the stories with 25.000 opinion leaders worldwide.
We ask them to share the stories in their network and reach a potential 2.5M connectors.
If the stories are good enough and relevant for society, the brand perception is improved and the stories will travel.
Since 2002, we have been interviewing brand owners around the world. Our first question is, “So, what’s your story?”
The vast majority of interviewees start giving us a company presentation and background history or even showing us PowerPoint presentations.
“Haven’t you ever heard of information overload?” we ask them. “People don’t want information, they want your story.”
Most people have developed a genuine distrust of top-down messages and corporate jargon.
“So, please tell us your story, authentic and personal. Humanise your brand.”
And when your story is good enough, people will start sharing it in social media and word-of-mouth, making your story travel.
