Story Behind the Blue Chair

So… why blue chair?

One afternoon, I came across a beautiful blue chair that used to reside in my family’s living area. For a reason unbeknownst to me, the chair had been dragged into a corner of a dark back room, left with little purpose other than to reminisce on its former glory days. 

Seeing potential in the lovely piece of furniture, I moved the chair into a corner of my bedroom. I used a quirky-looking stump as a side table and added a little lamp to complete the cozy corner.

Over the next few weeks, something shifted in the room. 

Almost every person who entered gravitated toward the blue chair. They sat, talked, and lingered in my room far longer than they ever did before. Connection and conversation took place in that space on a deeper level simply because of the blue chair’s presence.

That is exactly what authentic stories, intentional marketing strategy, and creative social do for organizations.

Authentic, intentional, and creative communication helps people to let their guards down. To pause. To listen to what a business or non-profit has to say. A recent study found that “consumers are four to six times more likely to buy from, trust, champion, and defend companies with a strong Purpose.”

Blue Chair Communications exists to create opportunities for your audience to take a seat, understand your purpose, and engage in a way that cultivates loyal relationships. 

Powerful stories exist within your organization. 

They just need to be moved out of the hidden back room and into places intentionally designed for connection.
