Stories shape us. They help form what we think, how we feel, and who we are. Stories change us. They build better communities and long-lasting relationships. Unfortunately, it can be a struggle to tell your own story in an authentic, compelling way. That’s where Narrative by New South Media can help.

For over a decade, New South Media has been seeking out and shedding light on people and places that make their communities great places to live, work, and play. We craft powerful and authentic storytelling that helps you stand out. Stories inspire action. They create an emotional impact and forge enduring relationships. Great storytelling separates you from the competition.

We are not an advertising agency, but rather a custom content development studio focused on helping you communicate the essence of your brand in the most inspiring and effective ways. With the personal and professional service you have come to expect from New South Media, Narrative offers you an opportunity to have our professionals bring your story to life by crafting the content that will appear in brochures, visitors’ guides, websites, television commercials, radio spots, and more.

Let us help give voice to your story.

“Working with Buddy and Narrative has been an absolutely amazing experience. Our organization had a set budget through a grant funded initiative to develop videos that describe what our program is all about and how it helps people struggling with substance use across the state. I had no clue how to put this into words, but Buddy and his team developed a plan that far exceeded my expectations. Buddy and his team were extremely prompt, professional, and friendly. Our videos turned out amazing and have been a hit on social media and presentations we do throughout our community. For any future media content I need, Narrative will be my first call!!”

“Our friends at Narrative have really taken a lot of time to get to know us, as an organization, and have really helped us reach out to people with more meaningful marketing than we have ever had before. They worked to help us realize who our true target audience is, and how to change our efforts to meet their needs. They are always just a call or an email away, and even make a two hour drive to come meet with us here when necessary! The team at Narrative is kind, intelligent, and efficient! A pleasure to work with.”
Rebekah Perry, Assistant Manager & Wildlife Education Director
Heritage Farms


“Marketing a region like Jefferson County sounds easy with so many incredible assets and proximity to the DC Metro market. However, driving visitors to our area is successful because we have Buddy Butler and Nikki Bowman Mills of Narrative by New South Media. They continuously develop engaging content and quality materials to captivate the visitor to say, I want to go there! Narrative is invested in us, our partners and the whole community and Jefferson County is up over 50% in hotel/motel occupancy from 2013.”
Annette Gavin Bates
CEO, Jefferson County CVB


“Narrative website design team far exceeded our expectations. By far, this is the best web development team we have worked with. It was really smooth from start to end and we look forward to working with them on future projects.”

“New South Media has all the qualities you’re looking for in a content creator, designer and partner: quick, creative, authentic, responsive, straightforward, insightful, and more. They were highly organized and efficient, and managed our project from start to finish keeping our vision at the center of all their creative efforts. Everyone was an absolute joy and breeze to work with. I can’t recommend New South Media enough!”
