Apple didn’t start their messaging with ...

  • We make great computers that are beautifully designed, simple to use, and user friendly. Want to buy one?

The common thread of movie makers and Aristotle! Just like the greatest storytellers like Aristotle or the movie makers of our day, they built their stories around a protagonist (a hero) and a villain (which is the market problem or obstacle you are solving).

  • They create conflict the hero will face that makes achieving the goal seem impossible. But are triumphant in the end.

The point is, they are creating something bigger. They are marketing the problem they are taking on.
