  11. Advertising strategy is no longer only about inspiring the creation of an ad. Today it has to inform how brands generate content, engage in the social stream, invite participation, and create cohesion across all media. Friday, January 20, 12
  12. Likewise, creative concepts are no longer limited to the art and copy-based executions that defined creativity in the traditional media of TV, print and outdoor. They now include digital experiences, gaming dynamics, mobile utility, Facebook apps, crowdsourcing and experiences that connect the digital world and the real world.Friday, January 20, 12

  16. The consumer has changed.  She no longer reads and listens but instead creates, shares, connects and filters. Technology has altered the way we interact with brands and content. Media has evolved -- it is less about connecting brands and content to consumers and more about connecting consumers to each other. New platforms and means of engagement are creating opportunities and challenges that transcend traditional advertising.   Conversation strategy allows brands to connect directly with consumers, without an intermediary channel. Transmedia story telling adds a level of complexity that reflects consumers’ own media behaviors. Hyper-connectivity, the only real trend that matters, elevates the influence of peers, informs decision making, and places new kinds of pressures on brands. Freemium, a model now used by everyone from iPhone games to music platforms (Spotify) to media properties (NY Times) is replacing advertising and even direct response due to its cost efficiencies. The interest graph is offering new insights to interests, preferences and actions.Friday, January 20, 12
  17. All of the above calls for new kinds of strategies and new kinds of creative solutions. It demands that “creatives” expand their repertoire and requires strategists and media planners to think of themselves as idea generators.   The next generation of strategists and creatives will require far broader set of skills and the ability to think like a T-Shaped person if they’re to conceive ideas that are both relevant and remarkable.Friday, January 20, 12

  66. The new advertising: A new strain of marketing in which the brand, agency and consumer work together to reach a tangible, meaningful goal. As a decade of digital interaction gives way to social and collaborative initiatives, brands and marketers no longer need to rely exclusively on traditional, short-term campaigns as their default strategy in the battle for consumers’ hearts and minds.Friday, January 20, 12
  67. Campaigns: Having evolved to suit the tightly defined media options of the past, a campaign is the end product of the creative process, done and finished when it goes out the door.Friday, January 20, 12
  68. Digital Assets: (platforms, apps, programs, utility): Platforms and projects, on the other hand, live on. They rely on consumer participation. They are collaborative and communal, and evolve over time. They demand more time, attention and monitoring, as they are never finished, but they can leave a deeper, long-term impression.Friday, January 20, 12
