The failure to develop a creative brief is a cardinal sin. The creative brief is important because it is the unifying document that identifies the important key benefits for a campaign of launch.
The creative brief tells the story and explains why it's important to the audience, serving as a guide for the creation of new materials. Therefore, the lack of a brief will lead to longer development times due to having no clear basis.
Having poor objectives that do not convey what needs to be done will not lead to a desirable outcome because it order to achieve that we need to understand which metrics needs to be moved and by how much to accomplish that business goal.
The reality is that although we want 'everyone' to be our target audience, it is neither realistic not sensible. Consumers are different -- each have a distinct functional and psychological need -- therefore we have to talk to them differently to be persuasive.
Plus, targeting everyone means equated to have an inexhaustible budget, but this isn't within reach for many. Instead, let us focus our energy and resources on the people that is most likely to generate returns.
The best advertising connects with the target costumers because it shows understanding of their needs and pain points.
It takes time to truly know your customer so don't cut corners in this process.
When asked "why should people buy your product?" what do you answer?
More often than not, brands take a shotgun approach to talking about everything they do well and as a result their messages come off feignly.
Great positioning is having a focus on the key benefit that speaks to the insight about your customer.
As new opportunities emerge, many brands are chasing the "shiny object" instead of starting with a strategy.
New media channels can present exciting opportunities but don't get caught chasing tactics -- chase your customer.
In an age where digital channels allow more exposure, click-through, and even purchase rates -- brands have routinely failed at measurement.
All too often, we see brands discussing their measurement strategy after the campain but due to this they are often not set up to ask the right questions.
Advertising is an evolving process. Recognizing, embracing, and getting better at strategic planning via the creative brief is one means to having more impactful campaigns.

This app is LOADED with RELEVANT, HELPFUL, AND EDUCATIONAL material. It is creatively intellectual, yet minimal enough to not overstimulate and create a learning block. I am exceptionally impressed with this app!
Brilliant. It feels fresh and encouraging. So many interesting pieces of information that are just enough to absorb and apply. So happy I found this.
Even five minutes a day will improve your thinking. I've come across new ideas and learnt to improve existing ways to become more motivated, confident and happier.
Great for quick bits of information and interesting ideas around whatever topics you are interested in. Visually, it looks great as well.
I have only been using it for a few days now, but I have found answers to questions I had never consciously formulated, or to problems I face everyday at work or at home. I wish I had found this earlier, highly recommended!
