Most of us have heard about Scheherazade, who told a story to safe her life. The sultan is fascinated by her tale, she starts to tell him during the night and she ceases talking in the morning. She so aroused his curiosity and he did not kill her.

BTW: The sultan is convinced, that no woman is faithful because his wife was unfaithful. So he marries a woman today and kills her tomorrow and so on. Scheherazade asks her father, the vizier, to marry her to the king to stop that insanity.

Supported by her sister Scheherazade tells the story for 1001 night and the king listens. During that time she bears three children and he is spellbound. Finally he is convinced by her faithfulness.

This is awesome, isn’t it? What do you think: our marketing and advertising could be a very attractive using storytelling, stories about den entrepreneur, the enterprise, the products, and all imparts knowledge and is educational TV?

Today’s marketing fears to take this step. Anyway, any time has its pioneers. And these pioneers bravely move into this direction and use storytelling as another pillar in marketing.

Scheherazade had to trust the power of her words and her voice. Well looking at the result she was very successful. Today we have even more possibilities to intensify the spoken words, that create the pictures in our heads. We know photos and videos. All together helps us to create our own pictures.

Do you have a picture in your head of your enterprise and about you as an entrepreneur? Do you want to excel from the crowd and follow new paths? Do you want to share your pictures with your customers and business partners? Yes? Please answer to that mail.

Yours sincerely,

I HEAR THESE WORDS SO OFTEN. AUTHORS ARE LISTED NUMBER 1 IN THEIR GENRE (CATEGORY WHICH SUITS FOR THE BOOK LIKE E.G. LOVE STORY, NON-FICTION ABOUT CAREERS DEVELOPMENT ETC.). CONGRATULATIONS EVERYTHING FROM THE HEART. HONESTLY, SOMETIMES I AM AN ITSY-BITSY BIT LEERY. I CANNOT BELIEVE THAT THERE EXISTS SUCH A HIGH NUMBER OF BESTSELLING AUTHORS. WHEN I TAKE A LOOK AT MY TALLY LIST AND USE MY FINGERS TO COUNT, MORE THAN HALF OF ALL EXISTING AUTHORS MUST HAVE PUBLISHED A BEST-SELLING BOOK.

 

I am not on that list. Writing and publishing is a hard business today. To earn a lot of money and become rich does not work with books. Okay, Joanne K. Rowling or Dan Browne have been successful… but it is more difficult like winning the lottery.

BTW: I write for people to give them some training material on hand. The other day I heard some feedbacks: “This book is always on my bedside locker and I read it very often.” Or “I read the book the fourth time now and I am still excited about it.” And another one: “I have read your book, I do it over and over again. It is easy to read and each time I pick it, I find a new impulse.” See, and this is the reason why I love writing. Who said, I have to die with all my knowledge? I love to share it.

Did you ever consider to write a book? Did you turn over this thought in your mind: is this valuable to be written and published? Who will read this? How do I write it? Am I capable of writing? And when yes, do readers like my style of writing?

For every question there is an answer. And I know by experience, you will have a lot more of these questions. This universe knows all answers to all questions, even it is “42” (see “The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy” by Douglas Adams). Someone who loves reading books and has read many books, s/he will automatically recognize a good plot and a good story.

Finding out if the own story is written in the adequate format, you have to talk to an experienced editor. Probably another format will turn out to be the better option for your manuscript.

You have already your manuscript? Courage please. Any individual has value to share with the world. In Germany the publishing business has changed dramatically. One example: five years ago you found one booth on the Frankfurt Book Fair for all the small and self publisher. Today they occupy an entire exhibition hall.

The world is open for future authors. Be courageous!

Yours
