4 Ways to Use Storytelling to Engage Your Audience

Storytelling is how smart health brands are emotionally engaging their audience.

4 Things Chipotle Can Teach You About The Heart of Your Most Loyal Customers

Connecting to Your Core

Chipotle Author Series Appeals to the Minds of Their Loyal Customers

Food, Film, and Literature. The latter two may not be what automatically comes to mind when you think of Chipotle. Sustainable, local, fresh, good-value, fast, delicious might be better descriptors.

So why has founder and CEO, Steve Ells, been spotted featuring “artsy” shorts such as the Chipotle’s original web series, Farmed and Dangerous, and most recently, an author series on it’s beverage cups from authors that are no lightweights such as: Nobel Prize in literature winner, Toni Morrison; brash comedienne, Sara Sylverman; and fast, edgy fiction writer of Money Ball, Michael Lewis?
