This is the deck for a masterclass I gave at ADMA Global Forum 2013, in Sydney, Australia. As my keynote was centered around technology and creative collaboration, the masterclass involved exercises meant to spark conversation: how can ideas be more "digital"? How can an agency's structure change to encourage digital ideas?

  6. 6. A creative exercise. Next year, OutdoorWorld is launching a completely redesigned website, with modern features inspired by and other leaders: ! ! • Collaborative filtering (“People who like this product also like...”) • Product ratings and reviews • Real-time product availability Along with an increased social media presence, they want this new site to allow them to reach a broader market and younger consumer. The new site is being built by an internal team.
  7. 7. A creative exercise. OutdoorWorld’s marketing budget for this initiative is large. They want ideas of all types for a relaunch campaign - digital, tv, and OOH. INSIGHT: OutdoorWorld’s research and experience with customers has shown them that outdoor gear consumers value history -- and the product expertise that comes with that history -- more than price. INSIGHT: 30% of existing website traffic comes from mobile devices. Most traffic (mobile and desktop) is direct, with 1/3rd from organic search.
  8. 8. A creative exercise. Your task, should you choose to accept it, is as follows: ! 1.Break into teams of two. 2.Come up with a high-level idea -- a story -- that OutdoorWorld can communicate to potential consumers. 3.Riffing off that idea, come up with as many executions as possible. Integrated ideas are better, but separate digital / tv / OOH ideas are ok.
