Closing thoughts on what I’ve learned not just by observing but while also planning with my clients this week is that a relevant message is way more important than just following the herd. I think we are always so focused on share of voice and numbers we forget if what we’re saying really is worth it? If you’re in an agency or on the other side, do you also wonder how to tell your client or boss that the proposed campaign is shit? I know easier said than done and we all have to sometimes compromise and implement ridiculous campaigns. But the important thing is did you make yourself heard or did you just quietly execute? My conscience is clear if I know I've fought for it at least. What do you guys think? Do email me your thoughts. Till then, have a wonderful week ahead!
