  6. 6. Chip and Dan Heath authors of “Made to Stick” Data are just summaries of thousands of stories—tell a few of those stories to help make the data meaningful.
  7. 7. Stories have structure —a beginning, middle, and end. This structure lets you organize data into a meaningful narrative and create a guided pathway that is linked to the original data source. The audience can follow along with the story, taking in data point by data point.

  11. 11. Jennifer Aaker General Atlantic Professor of Marketing, Stanford Graduate School of Business Stories are remembered up to 22 times more than facts alone.
  12. 12. Humans are wired to tell stories. It’s how we naturally communicate information and ideas. Even boring topics become interesting with a great story. The same is true of data. Numbers in a spreadsheet can be confusing and disengaging. But packaging that data into a story makes the facts digestible, contextual, and memorable.
  13. 13. The most engaging stories are multi-way conversations. They give listeners room to ask questions, just like an interactive data visualization.
  14. 14. Journalists have always been publishing statistics and facts in their articles. But the rise of data analytics and data visualization has caused more reporters to adapt their traditional narratives into data stories. The Guardian pioneered the concept of “data journalism” in 2009 when Simon Rogers created the Guardian Datablog. Today nearly every media outlet reports stories using infographics, maps, charts, and graphs. The reason is simple.Data visualizationsdrive traffic and sharing. Data storytelling has become a primary way media serve readers in the digital era.

  16. 16. Stephen Few Consultant and educator on business intelligence and information design Numbers have an important story to tell. They rely on you to give them a clear and convincing voice.
  17. 17. A big part of decision making is convincing others to adopt your point of view. Sometimes hard numbers are enough. More often you need something that connects the audience to the data on an emotional plane in order to gain buy-in. Stories add this emotion to data. Storytelling lets you talk about how the data relates to people and scenarios. You can inspire imagination. You can galvanize supporters for a cause.
  18. 18. By moving seamlessly between presentation mode and the original data set, you can answer questions on the fly to explain your argument. This helps you reach common ground, which is crucial for persuading others to support a decision and drive change.
  19. 19. Marketers often face challenges when gaining internal buy-in for new campaigns. Securing budget typically requires marketers to calculate and prove the ROI of their plans. Data plays a natural role here—and it is made more powerful by storytelling. Marketers increase their power of persuasion by explaining and proving how their ideas will help internal stakeholders achieve their goals. Marketers can describe how the data relates to the needs of the business and internal team members. Marketers can convince stakeholders because they are establishing context for the data and providing evidence of the potential results.
