Good storytelling can lead to impact through the spread of new ideas, improved access to resources, and by inspiring important conversations.
Every person has been impacted by a narrative that has changed their life. Stories shape the bedrock of our beliefs. People tell stories through rituals, customs, words, symbols, slogans and ideas – these are known as“memes”.
Memes are units of information that evolve through the transmission of ideas, behavior and style. Like a living cell or an active virus, memes replicate virally, spreading from one person to the next. They are even passed from generation to generation until they have a life of their own.
Memes can be redefined, reinterpreted and recreated by incident or intent. A meme can subconsciously and psychologically motivate individuals, peoples and groups to feel and act.
They have tremendous potential -and power- to build brands, businesses, organizations and political platforms. This is why memes have become part of mainstream communications strategy.
Commonlink Productions works with narratives and memes to create a foundation for a story-based strategy. We link people’s actions with the narrative power that places storytelling at the center of social manifestation and change.
