Think of the last great article you read or the last great speech you heard. Chances are, if you remember one key message, you also remember one compelling story. That´s because the best content starts with a story. When it comes to marketing, the best business content starts with a story the audience cares about, not the brand´s message about what it wants to sell them. In Brand, Meet Story, Heather Pemberton Levy describes the Story Comes First method, a practical approach that combines techniques from journalism and fiction writing to help brands tell stories that put the listeners´ interests first. Whereas most brand marketers create content to sell their product, service or technology, the Story Comes First method turns this approach on its head to create content with the ´´human moments´´ that truly engage an audience. Filled with examples from Levy´s experience creating content marketing programs, trade books, and hundreds of articles for a variety of B2B and B2C brands, the audiobook shows listeners a step-by-step approach to create content designed to deliver business results. Brand, Meet Story explains the key ways to uncover what your audience cares about and how to turn brand messaging into stories that matter. Levy inspires listeners to develop a compelling voice that will carry the brand tone and values across all channels, and helps them turn their ideas into engaging, story-driven content their audiences will hear, love, and share.

Ten years ago, the United States stood at the forefront of the Internet revolution. With some of the fastest speeds and lowest prices in the world for high-speed Internet access, the nation was poised to be the global leader in the new knowledge-based economy. Today that global competitive advantage has all but vanished because of a series of government decisions and resulting monopolies that have allowed dozens of countries, including Japan and South Korea, to pass us in both speed and price of broadband. This steady slide backward not only deprives consumers of vital services needed in a competitive employment and business market - it also threatens the economic future of the nation. This important book by leading telecommunications policy expert Susan Crawford explores why Americans are now paying much more but getting much less when it comes to high-speed Internet access. Using the 2011 merger between Comcast and NBC Universal as a lens, Crawford examines how we have created the biggest monopoly since the breakup of Standard Oil a century ago. In the clearest terms, this book explores how telecommunications monopolies have affected the daily lives of consumers and America´s global economic standing. 1. Language: English.

Professor Percival Marlowe is a brilliant, elderly astrophysicist who is dying - his greatest achievement still unfinished. Doctor Carl Dorning, a neurosurgeon, finally discovers a secret method of transplanting memories from one person to another, thanks to Marlowe´s millions. Miguel Sanchez, a homeless boy, agrees to become the recipient of Marlowe´s knowledge and personality in this unorthodox experiment, enticed by Dorning´s promises of intelligence, wealth, and respect, but dangerously unaware that his own identity will be lost forever. What results is a seesaw battle for control of Miguel´s body, as Marlowe learns to his dismay what his lifetime of arrogance and conceit has earned him. And when Marlowe stumbles upon the shocking procedure Dorning used in desperation to succeed, the professor does what he must to defeat Dorning and redeem himself at last. 1. Language: English.
