Why Storytelling?

There is no better way to bring to life your brand and the values behind it than storytelling. We’ve proven that the way for hospitals, healthcare systems, foundations and medical research institutions to make more meaningful connections with their communities is to develop high quality, original content. We touch people. We move them. We help them make new discoveries. Doing that requires much more than merely delivering information or picking up some “off the shelf” content. It requires real storytelling.

At CCM, our turnkey service encompasses strategic planning, editorial, design, photography, printing and digital or mailed distribution to be sure you’ll make those connections without making yourself crazy.

Share the stories behind your brand with a truly custom custom publication from Consonant Custom Media.To request a proposal or publication samples, please contact Steve Smith, publisher/creative director at (941) 309-5380. Click here to learn more about what we do. 


"'Be Brave. Tell Stories. Build Communities' really brought to light how sharing stories is capturing and engaging audiences to reinforce brand loyalty. Content Marketing is the new call to action!”
