The Art of Business Storytelling through Creative Writing (Part 1)


In this fast-paced digital world, businesses and organizations leverage on the use of the websites, digital channels or social media platforms like Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, LinkedIn, blogs to post their Information, Education, Communication (IEC) materials and marketing collateral. The goal is to promote their products and services to wider audience from different walks of life, keep up with the current trends to stay relevant in the field, get broader exposure, and engage clients/customers.

The essential tool in the digital world to write compelling and evoking contents that will really leave a mark in your audience hence increase visibility is through creative writing. One must employ different writing techniques and styles to capture the attention of your prospect partners, clients, or investors.

Contrary to news writing, creative writing utilizes various storytelling techniques in pitching ideas to make it more persuasive and convincing. Businesses can create content that resonates with their target audience and can evoke emotions and create strong visual images by using sensory and descriptive language.
