Storytelling. We all learned and loved it as kids, but many of us forget about the power of storytelling in the context of promoting our businesses.
In the latest episode of the Go For Launch podcast, I spoke to Ben Worthen about this topic. Ben is CEO of Message Lab, an award-winning agency that combines journalism, data and design to craft content and create experiences that get real results. Ben and his team help clients figure out how to tell stories that people actually want to hear.
Ben developed his storytelling and investigative savvy working as a journalist for 13 years, winning many national awards for news and feature-writing. In 2007, he joined The Wall Street Journal, where he covered the tech industry and wrote more than 50 Page One stories. He also was editor-in-chief at Ready State and head of content at Sequoia Capital.
Over the last two years, Message Lab has won seven Content Marketing Awards and has been a finalist for 16 more. Current and former clients include Facebook, Google, GoDaddy, ServiceNow, Elastic and Silicon Valley Bank. Connect with Ben on LinkedIn.
