Kevin Spacey Exposes The Secret To Successful Marketing… Give People What They Want…People Just Want Stories!


I still remember the day I first heard about this brilliant Kevin Spacey Video. It was today and I really don’t have much of a story here… It was simply meant to illustrate a point that you are still reading, most likely because this post started off as a story.

I can assure you that my blog posts that actually start with real stories go much further virally, and drive much deeper engagement with my blog.

People want stories… They don’t care if it’s a movie, a tv show, a youtube video, a book. They don’t care if they saw it on a computer, television, tablet or smartphone. They don’t care if it’s 30 minutes or 12 hours… People just want stories.

“Give People What They Want, When They Want It, In the Format They Want It In, For a reasonable price, and they won’t steal it. They Will Buy It.” – Kevin Spacey

This video is brilliantly insightful and very worthwhile to watch. Enjoy.

    generally lost simply just trying to figure out how to begin.
    Any suggestions or tips? Many thanks!
