Extracted from the great book of Seth Godin named “All Marketers are Liars” that proves the effectiveness of story telling for marketers in order to woo consumers to buy their product..
Marketers are a special kind of liar. Marketers lie to consumers because consumers demand it. Marketers tell the stories, and consumers believe them. Some marketers do it well. Others are pretty bad at it. Sometimes the stories help people get more done, enjoy life more and even live longer. Other times, when the story isn’t authentic, it can have significant side effects and consumers pay the price.
