Posted on October 21, 2011 by Liz Rowell

What can I say, some good, some not so good.  The Stevie® Awards for Women in Business are the world’s premier awards for women executives, entrepreneurs, and the organizations they run. Having done that am off for a global survey of advertising and  marketing trends in the US, Ireland and Hong Kong.  I shall report back in 3 weeks.

3 things to think about when you’re writing a brief…………..

- what competitors are doing is important, but you shouldn’t let that narrow your thinking or proscribe what you want to do. Think about your brand first.

- put yourself in the customer’s or consumer’s place. Get out from behind your desk and think about the itch you’re scratching not the product you’re pushing.

- think about what’s going on around you in general – what’s the mood of the nation, how is the zeitgeist hanging? understand the context in which your advertising will appear, not just the medium.

Be excited, it’s a new opportunity to reach out and connect, the ship of ideas is setting sail!
