History – Creative Strategy

  • Born in the UK in the 1960’s out of an unmet need
  • To bring rigor and ‘planning’ into the process of creative and strategic development
  • Creative strategy = consumer research
  • Fathered by Stanley Politt and Stephen King

History – Creative Strategy

  • Migrated into the US in the 80’s
  • Trigger: J. Chiat noticed UK creative was better
  • Evolved from research to ‘communications (ad) -tweaker’
  • Focus was briefs and briefings: “Planning adds a touch of creativity to the mix.’ – Jon Steele

History – Creative Strategy

  • 2000’s saw the emergence of the specialist strategist
  • Obsessive focus on awards led to clients looking elsewhere for strategic leadership
  • Propelled by technology advances and media fragmentation
  • Both a crisis and an opportunity for our discipline

History – Creative Strategy

  • The (Digital) Strategist/Planner
  • The (Brand) Strategist/Planner
  • The (Communications) Strategist/Planner
  • The (Creative) Strategist/Planner
  • The (Experience) Strategist/Planner

History – Creative Strategy

  • Planning is a contingent discipline
  • It was born out of changing needs…which continue to change.
  • So there will always be a role for planning (or strategy), but it will need constant reinvention to stay useful.

WHAT PLANNING IS NOT…

WE’RE NOT HERE TO SAVE THE WORLD

That takes us to what it’s not.

WE’RE NOT CREATORS OF CULTURE

Tap into culture. Which doesn’t only mean internet culture, memes. But the mood of the nation post recession: recessionista

When brands try to create ‘cool’ like the cool planners, they get found out.

*

WE’RE NOT THE ARBITERS OF COOL

Not the savviest dressers, the ones with the best taste.

*

WE’RE NOT THE SOLE DECIDERS OF STRATEGY

*

WE’RE NOT A FORCE FOR SOCIAL CHANGE

Not making the world a better place. Often selling soda and salty snacks. Unless of course you choose not to.

*

  • Strategist plays a pivotal role
  • Identifies the problem
  • Simplifies the issue
  • Finds the nuggets (often from within)
  • Inspires the Brief
  • Facilitates the discussion
  • Tells the story

Look for data, (Hoover, Mintel, Annual reports, Google) immersion

Don’t take client challenge or ask at face value: interrogate the brief, reframe to problem

So much stuff, simplify, clealy articulate the issues- not bullet point, but linked.

Nuggets- lubars, more tomorrow.

Write the brief

Push beyond. Work with comms planner or digital planner.

The Consumer Journey
and alignment to understand areas of research

Different Types of Journey

  • Purchase journey (e.g. buying a Prius)
  • Occasion journey (e.g. a night out with friends)
  • Loyalty journey (e.g. using your checking account with your bank over time)
  • Experience journey (e.g. the experience of upgrading your Slack subscription)

Different Models

From This

McKinsey Loyalty Loop

1) The Consumer considers an Initial set of brands based on brand perceptions and exposure to recent touchpoints

2) Consumer add or subtract brands as they evaluate what they want

3) Ultimately, the consumer selects a brand at the moment of purchase

4) After purchasing a product or service, the consumer builds expectations based on experience to inform the next decision journey

Key Steps in Research

  • Define the problem, issue or key area to understand
  • Understand who is the best target to research
  • Define best methodologies
  • Develop a research brief with sound research objectives
  • Develop a survey questionnaire and moderator guide (based on research objectives)
  • Recruit participants
  • Collect Data
  • Analyze Data
  • Discover the insight for development of strategy

Docs used in Research

  • Research Brief: This document defines the objectives, the issue, the scope, the background and other data important to the research
  • Screener: In our project, the screener will be included in the recruitment questions. This is a document that used by the recruiter of focus group participants that defines the “ideal” participant. This is crucial as the quality of the data will depend on the quality of the target sample
  • Moderator or Discussion Guide: Guide used by the Moderator and approved by the client. These are the approved questions to ask participants to fulfill the objective of the study
  • Survey Questionnaire: list of questions to be asked in a quantitative survey
  • Consumer Insights / Report: this is the final report of findings and recommendations presented to the client. This report will serve as the roadmap to future strategy, product positioning or re-positioning, marketing and strategic plans.

Let’s Review Research Brief Examples

Research Brief

Sections:

  • Background: Context
  • Research Objectives: name clarifying the areas of research with “understand”, “evaluate”, “assess”, “explore”, “verify”, “compare”, etc.
  • Target: Screening Criteria for research participants
  • Timetable: expected timetable to complete research phase
  • Finalize Research Brief: due by 9/4
  • Finalize Research Instruments: due by 9/11
  • Qualitative Participant Recruitment: NOTE: Start as early as possible – w/o 9/5, 9/12, 9/19
  • Data Collection: w/o 9/12, 9/19, 9/26
  • Finalize Data Collection: finalize by 9/28
  • Data Analysis and Final Report: due by 10/2
  • Methodology recommended: qualitative, quantitative, techniques (example, ethnography, A/B testing)
  • Deliverable: Full report

Key Learnings

  • Realistic Screening Criteria
  • Remember that this description defines who you are looking for to take your survey or be interviewed.
  • The purpose of a Research Brief
  • The purpose of a brief is to have the team agree to what is important to know in order to proceed with the client promised deliverables. This is not a form to fill out but a living, working, very useful document to produce relevant deliverables to your clients. For example, the “Background” section is to give the client’s brief history, business objectives, goals and issues to attain them.

Key Learnings

  • Using correct language and words
  • To define research objectives, use words such as” assess, explore, understand, compare, evaluate, identify, etc.
  • Always include motivations, limitations, or barriers to desired behaviors
  • Research objectives can be broad topics but be as specific as you can be
  • Example, “Identify what type of content has a bigger impact with target” – include categories of types of content: testimonials, survivor stories, faith-based, videos, blogs, TikTok challenges, fear-based, inspirational

Key Learnings

  • More is not always best
  • The important thing to remember is to provide clear and direct communication of what you are promising to deliver, the way you will approach the work and by when.

Why eBay Needs A Revitalization, Rebranding, Repositioning and/or Even A Product Overhaul.

eBay provides a diverse customer base for sellers to market products to buyers and attracts sales. However, the platform is faced with significant problems that discourage sales and prompt revitalization, rebranding, repositioning and product overhaul. One major issue relates to the complex rules in the eBay systems and inconsistency in operations. Since eBay is an online platform, the company has strict policies on purchases and sales within its system that make purchasing products a lengthy procedure for customers (Komiak et al., 2008). The systems require users to sign up and provide detailed personal information about users to facilitate financial transactions and deliveries of products. These processes affect operations in eBay, influencing a decline in sales, thus prompting revitalization and repositioning for eBay (Liu & Tang, 2018). Revitalization and repositioning for eBay can be achieved by promoting the platform to ensure more sellers who will provide a larger pool of products in the catalogues at affordable prices.

As a business platform, eBay also needs rebranding and product overhaul to help address the issues of unclear return policies, issues of added fees from sellers, and ensure proper inventory management. eBay continues to face significant challenges from unclear return policies that cause conflict between sellers (Komiak et al., 2008). Poor inventory management also affects its operations due to an unstructured management system for the inventory. eBay also suffers from disputes from its customers arising from added fees by sellers when customers purchase products (Liu & Tang, 2018). These issues affect the profitability of the business due to continued complaints and customer dissatisfaction. Initiating rebranding and product overhaul strategies would help eBay to establish a solid structure to guide its operations, systems and interactions with customers, thus promoting growth.
