A Guide To Understanding Financial Terms
At Digital Storyteller, we specialize in creating content for companies in the Finance Services Industry. While we’ve become experts during our time here, navigating financial terms and acronyms can be confusing for someone who is not familiar with the industry.
In our Brand Storytelling session, we narrow down exactly what the client wants to convey in their messaging and how to bring that message to a broader audience. We ask these types of questions: Who is your audience? Where do you want to focus your attention? How do you want your brand to be portrayed to your intended audience? How do you build an audience of value?
To begin, you have to consider the type of content you are sending out to your target audience. What is the brand you are trying to portray with your content? For our financial service companies, that often means everyday inspiration and relevant business information — a quote from a beloved thought leader or an information video on the current state of the economy.
Once you have defined the brand that is going to be portrayed, start aggregating content. Anyone can easily start a conversation around a financial topic, the struggle is keeping the conversation and audience captivated. Sending out content multiple times a week is key to keeping the conversation relevant and interesting. It doesn’t matter how many people are sharing your content, what matters is that it is getting to the right people.
A key part of implementing this content is creating a framework. Create a framework that implements various types of content to create one big brand story. So for some of our financial services companies, we focus on helping small businesses understand their financial statements and how to implement proper financial reporting. Be specific with your audience and how you can help them in both the future and the present.
Finally, in order to captivate audiences, you must add some creativity and personality to your content. Think about this: How do you portray your brand personality? What is going to make someone want to learn more about your company? And how do you simplify that for someone who may not be as educated on financial literacy? Finding ways to include simple language to describe complex ideas can be difficult but it is necessary to create high-quality content.In order to help our clients get specific about how they want to portray their brand to their audience, we conduct a Brand Storytelling Session. This session includes a 2-hour brainstorming meeting to discuss how the leaders of your company view your brand, how others view your company, and how we can bridge the gap between those two points of view.
