How do we do it…
Our overall Planning Framework
Our approach to communication planning is founded on three main stages (3D: Determine, Design, and Deliver).
In the Determine stage, we focus on identifying the real business issue that we are trying to solve.
In the Design stage, we put the consumer at the heart of the solution, develop the media insight, and the idea and the strategy that will bring the concept to life.
In the Deliver stage, we connect the strategy to the investment by planning across touch points, optimizing the mix, identifying weight and flights, integrating ideas with the plan and ensuring maximized returns. We adopt an on-going process for assessing the campaign deliveries and amending the plan as needed.
Our planning framework is fueled by a wealth of syndicated and proprietary tools catering to each stage of the planning approach. The table below describes in summary the name of each tool and its position in our 3D process:
Data is the new oil
