 Tom Morton, chief strategy officer, Havas Worldwide NY
                      @tommorton
“Miserable is what your
whole crew will be,
if you‟re not original and
you show no strategy.”

                                       Word Play
INSIGHT IS ONE OF THE MOST VALUABLE
CURRENCIES IN ADVERTISING
“Nothing is so powerful as an
insight into human nature . . . what
compulsions drive a man, what
instincts dominate his action . . . if
you know these things about a
man you can touch him at the
core of his being.”


                                         Bill Bernbach
LIKE ALL CURRENCIES
INSIGHTS CAN BE DEVALUED

“Natalie is    “She is a busy, on-the-
an ISFJ.”      go mom who is always
               looking for me-time.”




THE TARGET CONSUMER

“Teens want the ability     “People feel that
to customize and            inner beauty is
personalize food in their   most important.”
own way.”




THE DEEP TRUTH
THAT DOESN’T SCRATCH THE SURFACE
“Flossing regularly makes    “People get tired
my teeth cleaner and         by the end of
makes me feel more           the day.”
confident about my mouth.”




THE UNIQUE TRUTH
THAT ISN’T UNIQUE (OR TRUE)
INSIGHTS NEED TO BE
TRUE FLASHES OF INSIGHT
Insight: a penetrating observation about
consumer behavior that can unlock growth.
Diageo



Insight: an astonishing disclosure about real
people, the brands they use or the world they
live in that compels a change in their behavior.
Richard Huntington, Saatchi & Saatchi
INSIGHT HUNTING MEANS
DEFYING CONVENTION
“All great truths begin as
heresies.”


                             George Bernard Shaw
INSIGHTS AREN’T JUST SAID, THEY’RE FELT
When the intellect articulates what the gut has
always felt.
Unilever Consultant


Insight (n.) The act of apprehending the inner
nature of things or of seeing intuitively.
Webster’s dictionary
Axe: every guy pines for
„the one that got away‟
          Axe – Fear No Susan Glenn
THE QUICKEST WAY TO INSIGHT IS TO
REFRAME THE PROBLEM
UK Road Safety: the 30mph speed limit
is the highest speed at which most
pedestrians will survive a collision

       UK Road Safety – It‟s 30 For A Reason
Milk: most people don‟t even notice
milk when it‟s there, but they really
miss it when it‟s not
           Got Milk – Aaron Burr
THERE IS MORE INSIGHT IN THE NEGATIVE
AND CONTRADICTORY SIDE OF HUMAN
NATURE THAN THERE IS IN THE SUNNY SIDE
Nicorette: most attempts to quit
smoking are unplanned and
chaotic, so quitting sucks
            Nicorette – Shark
BGH Air Conditioners:
heat makes us undignified
  BGH Air Conditioners: Dads In Briefs
“Out of the crooked
timber of humanity,
no straight thing was
ever made.”

                        Immanuel Kant
LOOK BEYOND THE CONSUMER
AND OUT IN TO CULTURE
The Beetle is a humble alternative
     to the excesses of Detroit
Every generation of young people thinks it can change the world
LOOK TO THE DEEP TRUTHS OF THE BRAND

who strides across the bottle

Dos Equis: Vienna-style beer brewed
by Germans in Mexico to celebrate
the dawn of a new century.

people a taste of the good times

Q. What are the greatest hits of the brand?


  Q. What was the magic of the brand when it was at
  its peak?


  Q. What are the truths of the brand that are staring
  us in the face?




THE MAGIC QUESTIONS
