Open Road Integrated Media--Using Story + Search to Reach Readers

NEW YORK, May 23, 2018 /PRNewswire/ Brand storytelling is great when you've got a multimillion-dollar budget and endless possibilities for creativity. But not every brand is that lucky; most have little with which to make an impact, especially if they're small or hitting a very limited niche. It gets worse when a minor budget needs to make a splash in a crowded space, such as the book market. Few succeed; even fewer survive to become household names.

So how do they do it, those lucky few author success stories? How do they engage in storytelling to stand out from the crowd?
