Inventions? Sparked? You?
Right now I am staring at a big fat binder from Saatchi & Saatchi research and planning that I used in most of our new business pitches in the late nineties (and still use for reference.) These planning tools included our Masterbrand Temple, the Brand Detonator, SURT, Integrator and Old Brand Development. While they were all super smart stuff that helped us develop marketing strategies that lead to brand building and award-winning advertising, these tools also played the all-important role of dazzling prospective clients. Of course, Saatchi wasn’t alone in developing proprietary research tools. But, we really knew how to leverage the power of inventing new ways of doing business. Which brings me to the point.
