  • Storytelling is a gift. It's not merely a useful way to send your kids drifting off to sleep or to make you seem vaguely interesting at parties. It is also a hugely powerful marketing tool.

    Badoo's resident CMO, Gastón Tourn, firmly believes in dynamic storytelling as a keystone of marketing. Here, in his latest article, he tells us about how we can harness the influence of literature's greatest storytellers to create a (diagram free!) effective marketing campaign.

    5 Tips Marketers Can Glean From Hemingway to Improve Their Storytelling Strategy

    Why do so many brands botch their storytelling? Stories are a powerful tool. By making us feel something-not just think something-they make information human. We're hardwired to respond to them. That's why no child has ever asked for a bedtime PowerPoint presentation. Yet some brand storytelling just seems to miss the mark.

    How Badoo is changing dating with massive data | V3

    The data behind dating is fascinating (and valuable), but for years it was limited to anecdotes on blogs. It's only in this millenium that sites like OK Cupid, Badoo and Plenty of Fish have made information based on massive data sets available to everyone; showing successful strategies in everything from photos to first messages.

History

Badoo was launched in 2006, by a small international group of young, forward thinking programmers and tech entrepreneurs. Their vision was to use the most advanced technologies available to create an elegantly modern, fast and easy way for people to meet new people in their area - and have fun doing it. The scope would be global, but adapted to local needs. It worked.

Badoo now has the majority of its operations in London. It is currently available in 46 languages via Badoo.com and various social/mobile platforms such as iOS, Android, Windows Phone, Facebook & Desktop application.

    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at Badoo (New York, NY) in February 2018.

    Interview

    It's Skype interview from London office. It's the first stage of the hiring process.

    I am amazed by how the interviewer is so helpful for the interview process. Before this first stage, I had conversation with the interviewer about 3 weeks ago. So they really want us to be ready for the interview.
