Telling stories has been around since mankind lived in caves and hunted animals. Storytelling is as important to your content marketing as your product or service is.

Joe Lazauskas is a marketing and technology journalist and best selling author of The Storytelling Edge. He’s a regular speaker at Content Marketing World, Web Summit and Collision among others.
