STRATEGICPLANNINGIN ADVERTISING By Gri n Farley for the Tampa Ad2 Club September 2009
This weekend I watched the movie BIG with my family. The main character was promoted to VP of Product Development because he was able to bring insights about children to uppermanagement. The consumer (himself as a 14 year old boy) was the only thing he knew to talk about. The best planners are able to think about their consumers like that.
First Job in AdvertisingIt also hit home for me because my first job in advertising was marketingtoys.
year year year year year year 1 2 3-4 5-6 7 8-10Since then I have had the pleasure of working on lots of different brands, but more importantly for a strategic planner was the opportunity to talk to lots of different consumer audiences.
My Goal TonightI want you to add something to your marketing tool box. Maybe it’s a theory, maybe it’s a blog I reference or maybe it’s a case study that I show you. If you don’t learn anything new cometalk to me afterwards.
