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!
