It is important to define an advertising strategy, since this determines the objective that the company wants to achieve through advertising. Without a strategy, it is impossible to determine how the goal will be achieved, as well as to plan current and future actions, but how to structure a strategy?
A strategy starts with a previous analysis of the current situation of the company, its competitors, objectives, target, existing problems and to know what the company needs. A clear brief is the first step in structuring the strategic plan and a counter-briefing is always necessary to be clear about the information provided by the client on specific points.
How to define my strategy?
Once you have structured what the company needs, defining a territory is very important and will help you develop a strategy. Some examples of territory could be: Health, food, education, animal care, entertainment, etc.
If you have defined your territory, structuring the strategic axes will be easier. Creativity plays a very important role and the territory does not depend on the kind of company you run. A healthcare company can use an educational territory and its strategy can be linked to that. Do you follow us?
