We wont intentionally be rude, but we did a run thru of this and discovered that theres a lot to cover and 2.5 hours really isnt that long to get thru it all. So we need to keep things moving.</p> <p>Questions are encouraged, but if they get too far off the topic, we will cut the discussion off. You can always grab me for a beer later on and share the rest of your thoughts. I love this kind of stuff and am happy to continue the conversation.</p> <p>If you need a bio-break before the break, take one. The break is scheduled at 90 minutes, or about the length of a movie.</p> <p>Have fun! This is a creative process. This cant be as hands-on as we would have liked, but youll get out of it what you put into it.</p> <p>Say hi to Dawn shes the timekeeper. Grab me after the workshop or in email if youd like.6</p> <p>#storytell #sxswWhy Are You Here?</p> <p>7Time Allotted: 5 minutes</p> <p>We assume that youre here because youre not thrilled with the direction your social media engagement is going and think that there is a better way.</p> <p>Youre right.</p> <p>But we want to hear from you </p> <p>Why are you here -what do you want to get out of the workshop?</p> <p>Show of hands how many people here are:</p> <p>content creatorscontent managersstrategists or campaign plannersEngaging directly with customers?

We want to share what we see. This is not a proof of concept were here to try to convince you with a lot of data and science on WHY this is next evolutionary step. Social marketing will evolve this way whether you believe it will or not. Why is a fascinating question and were happy to discuss it with anyone after the workshop, but we have a lot of material to get thru, so were going to limit discussion or questions that go down that path.</p> <p>Goal 1: Were here to share with you our experience, and some case studies of brands who are already going down this path.</p> <p>2. Were also here to provide the tools to move your brand or clients down this path. </p> <p>You will notice a workbook at every chair. Thats yours to keep and you can fill it out while youre here, or take it back to work and use it with your team. We know its not PC to print things out these days but we did this for a reason. </p> <p>Consider using this workbook to be a transmedia experience. </p> <p>You are also free to improve upon the worksheets you see there, disregard or change them completely. Were not saying that this is THE method to get you going down the storytelling its A method. These are open source, so improve on them as you will, and share them when you can.</p> <p>3. A journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step. We hope the workshop gets you thinking creatively and strategically, and helps you take the first 10 steps or so down the storytelling path.</p> <p>15</p> <p>What Is Social StoryTelling?(and who is doing it well?)#storytell #sxsw</p> <p>Time Allotted: 20 minutes</p> <p>16</p> <p>#storytell #sxswCase Study: Old Spicewith special guest Dean McBethFormerly senior digital strategist at Wieden+KennedyNow SVP of digital strategy and content at Ketchum Digital</p> <p>#storytell #sxswOld Spice guy started in a super bowl commercial (actually just on the Web)</p> <p>#storytell #sxswOld Spice on Twitter</p> <p>#storytell #sxswOld Spice on Youtube</p> <p>#storytell #sxswOld Spice on Facebook</p> <p>#storytell #sxswOld Spice Website</p> <p>Top 10 Tips for Social StorytellingCustomer comments/actions will guide good story ideasWhat are customers are doing/saying now?
