What’s the difference between "Good" and
"Exceptional" data storytelling?

What’s the difference between "Good" and "Exceptional" data storytelling?

If you had to compare two brand stories, side by side, would you be able to tell the difference
between a "good" brand story and an "exceptional" brand story?

Or would you have to think twice about it?

You see, it can be difficult if you’re not familiar with the elements of an effective story.

A well-written, data-driven story uses relevant insights that resonate with the target prospect. So much so they feel it was written for them.

It motivates the reader to take action on what they've read without the need to be “sold” to.

I like to simplify this point by putting it into an equation:

Analytics + Storytelling = Influence.

The problem is it's complicated to execute.
Merging insightful data and numbers into a compelling narrative is not easy.

Most people struggle to do both.
Which is why I’ve created the tools to weave these two polar opposite elements together.

Yes, I've documented the entire process in systematic detail.
It's called Using Data Smarter..

Inside you'll discover everything you need to know to master data storytelling and in time, become a master data storyteller yourself.

Here are some of the organisations I’ve helped
to master data storytelling.

The Using Data Smarter course will transform
you into a Master Data Storyteller

Most of the copywriting and storytelling training
available teaches the same old, tired principles.

How many times have you heard “Be aware of your audience?" Or something like, "Use visuals to present
and clarify your message?"

Probably too many if you’re familiar with the
industry. This sort of advice is far too general. It
won’t help you to weave an interesting story with
useful insights.

How would I know?

Well, over the last 30 years, I've developed a specific
set of steps, perfecting the art of data-driven storytelling.

I understand what works.

Asking Smarter Questions

Asking Smarter
Questions

The building blocks of insight are data and information. They are often joined together in novel, unpredictable ways.

We can make more meaningful connections between data points by asking smarter questions. End result is organisations become less confrontational, more collaborative, and more productive.

Insights

Sourcing Genuine Insights

Insight joins together existing data and knowledge in new and often surprising ways. Insight drives strategy and informs decision-making. This is why insight is the superpower that drives innovation.

At the heart of sourcing genuine insights is a dynamic model of insightful thinking. I call it the STEP Prism of Insight. The 4-step model is designed to solve creative thinking problems.

Becoming a Data Storyteller

Becoming a Data Storyteller

Jobs are becoming increasingly similar. There are two skills that everyone needs to thrive. One is interrogating and making sense of data. The other is using insights extracted from data to persuade others to act.

Analytics + Storytelling = Influence.

There are some simple and effective rules of data-driven storytelling
that help create more compelling, evidence-based stories. This course shows you how.

Hi, I'm Sam Knowles.

Sam png
Sam png

I've been helping organisations to tell better stories with data for 30 years.

This includes national and global businesses, governments, and third-sector organisations.

I’m not afraid to get my hands dirty with data. But I also know how to spot the forest from the trees. Because I use data as the foundation of powerful, purposeful, and persuasive storytelling.

  • Narrative by Numbers
  • ​Asking Smarter Questions
  • ​How To Be Insightful

I don't say all this to brag, but to prove I know my stuff when it comes to world-class data storytelling.

And now I’m sharing my understanding of human motivation, behaviour, and how to tell stories with data. It's all included in the Using Data Smarter course.

My goal for you? To help you become a Master Data Storyteller in three months or less.
