Finding Stories that fit specific criteria

12 replies
Hello everyone,
Do you have any tips on Finding stories (case studies, anecdotes, examples)? I need this skill a lot in my workk.
For instance for a task like this :
-find a story of a brand that advertised early on social media (first mover) AND how that made it difficult to unseat later.
-Find an example of a lazy but successful person?
-Find an example of a company that failed in its country of origin but succeeded in foreign countries.
etc, I'm not looking for answers for those specific cases (though feel free to share if you want), I'm just trying to explain what type of tasks I'm trying to do.

    Hi, I'm pretty new here so I don't have experience with these specific questions but I think you just have to learn to use Google search queries the right way. Also you could hire someone to help with the research. Additionally you'll get to hear stories as you're in the industry longer. Hope that helps a bit.

    Have you thought about writing these stories
    yourself or having them written for you.

    That would be my advice.

    What's your experience working with a product or brand or something?

      I can rely on my experience but I'd prefer to focus on case studies that are iconic.

  • If you check out YouTube - you will see many YouTubers who have created content on those questions you asked.

    YouTube and Quora can be a better alternative.

    They are everywhere my friend.

    Use Google search for example...

    "Entrepreneurs who had early success with social media."

    For that specifically "Gym Shark" Fitness apparel comes to mind.

    They exclusively targeted Social Media Influeners and now worth Millions.

    In most of the cases such stories can be found in google. The thing is that not all of the people can use google search properly, I mean that there are lots of commands there which facilitate the search process. I strongly recommend you to watch some tutorials on how to use google for the search because google has the answers to probably all of the questions.

    Sometimes the search can take too much time, so it is better to make your personal story about the things that you need. Actually, many people don't know how to work with google search engine. It has lots of different commands which make the results more suitable and useful.

      Even if you find content through Google or some
      other search engine/method, that does not mean
      you can, or should, use it.

      By that I mean that it may not be permissible for
      you to use it, and it probably won't be suitable.

      You could also use the article directories, like
      eZinearticles, to find content, but to have true
      custom content, see my previous reply.

      I usually hire professional freelance writers to
      develop custom content for me, it is not that
      expensive.

      And with automated dictation and transcription
      readily available now, there is no excuse not
      to create your own content.

    I find most of the stories in the biographies of famous people. There are lots of stories of all kinds, so the thing is that you've got to remember them and use when you need them.

    You may want to check Google Trends, it might come handy when you need something.
