Scientific studies and neuroscience confirm for us the epic power of storytelling to reach and engage people. Because humans are wired to respond to a story, that is why storytelling drives sales.
In a research, study students were asked to make a one-minute pitch to their class. Only 1 in 10 of the students told a story. On average the students utilized 2.5 data points in their pitch. After all the students had pitched, they were asked to take a sheet of paper and write down what they remembered from each pitch. Only 5% of the students remembered the pitches containing data, however, the study showed 63% of the pitches made using story were remembered.
