What is narrative design? And how the heck does it apply to businesses?
Marcus Andrews, Product Marketing Group Lead and Narrative Designer at HubSpot, tells us how he borrowed a video game-centric storytelling process and turned it into a usable framework for SaaS businesses.
In this episode, Marcus talks us through his 5-step narrative design framework to craft killer product narratives and launch new products to market:
- Identify a massive undeniable change in the world
- Create winners and losers of the new and old game
- Identify what the change means for businesses
- Empathize with your audience
- Pitch your solution
Marcus also shares unique behind the scenes stories of different narratives HubSpot has used to grow into a $10B business, including the groundbreaking flywheel model.
