Storytelling

Storytelling as a PR and marketing strategy involves much more than just sharing “stories”. In contrast to conventional PR, storytelling goes beyond quoting mere facts and figures, beyond publishing company news. Good storytelling will always hone in on themes that are relevant for target groups, on what’s hot on the markets, and will interpret general themes through its own brand of prism. That’s why storytelling won’t work without elements of emotionalizing or personalizing.

In the real word, storytelling is not the job of a single person. You won’t find storytelling listed in the spokesperson’s job profile. Storytelling is an element of corporate culture that grows in the right environment of business processes and is supported by the right tools. It requires cutting-edge theme monitoring and sustainable influencer marketing, based on the company’s mission statement and the elevator pitch method used by the company’s management and staff.

The whole world is one big story, and we’re in it.

PR agency

We have provided PR services to businesses for more than 25 years – from small startups all the way to large corporations. vibrio has established close and trusting contacts with the traditional media, from the regional press and trade magazines to radio, television and online media. Our portfolio reflects our expertise: from brand PR, partner PR, technology PR and sales PR to image PR, financial PR, crisis PR and change communication.

Social media agency

Social media marketing is not a new offshoot in the marketing mix. Social media marketing is all about expanding corporate communications by including social networks.

That’s why you cannot just relegate social media marketing to a single social media marketing manager. On the contrary: social media marketing is a challenge for the entire marketing organization, if not for the entire company: you are suddenly faced with having to learn how to live in the categories and by the principles of social media.

It would be a fallacy to delegate social media marketing to some agency and be done with it. Our mission is to help and assist our clients on their path to becoming successful players in social media culture. Our job is to coach and support them. Our forté is the technical establishment of channels and media for our clients on the one hand, and the management of channel and media relations on the other.

As a social media agency, we develop and design corporate blogs, LinkedIn websites, XING groups, Facebook and Twitter channels and much more.

And most of all, we are a strategic partner in content marketing. Because social media communication is based on conversational publishing. All social media channels require editorial plans. That’s why we believe in creating editorial plans hand in hand with our clients.

We explore themes, edit content for target audiences, write copy and help our clients’ storytellers develop and enhance their social media marketing. We help our clients every step of the way – right up to lead generation and employee branding.

For more details on some of our corporate blogging and content marketing references, please view the corporate blogs post on our agency blog.

In social media marketing, our competence portfolio ranges from strategic consulting to the technical development of corporate blogs, websites and social media channels, from employee marketing, online monitoring, editing and video production to the design and rollout of fully-fledged social media campaigns on Facebook or social selling campaigns on LinkedIn.

AGNITAS was founded in 1999. This makes us the pioneer of the industry in Germany and the e-mail marketing provider with the longest experience in this market. But our market and our technologies change rapidly. It is not easy to find an agency that can keep up with this pace. With vibrio, we have found a partner who has been keeping up with our high pace with its own know-how and great flexibility for many years. Today the agency supports us above all strategically in storytelling and in the concrete implementation in PR and social media marketing.

CWS-boco is an expert in washroom hygiene solutions, dirt-trapping mats and textile services for companies of all sizes and in all industries. We have been working successfully with the agency vibrio for many years: Together we have developed an integrated communication strategy for both our international holding company and the German national subsidiary. In the beginning, the focus was on classic press work, but increasingly we have also come to know and appreciate vibrio as a reliable, creative and constructively critical partner in the planning and implementation of campaigns both for our core target groups and for the general public. It was also the agency that showed us the importance of integrating social media into a holistic corporate communication in the sense of PR 2.0.
