In addition to a great product or service, businesses often need something else to gain customer loyalty. Often, that something is the ability of the brand to emotionally connect to the customer. This is especially important when you consider the fact that most buying decisions are not following logical processes, but more emotional path. Brand story can help bridge that gap between the company and the customer. Good brand story will highlight personal benefits to the buyer, and this will hold true even in a business to business marketing.
