Have you ever worked at an advertising agency? If you have not, you should really spend a day there at least to have the experience. Our admen go through on a daily basis for the biggest shark brands in the country. If you have ever worked at an advertising agency, you would know that there is no such thing as a slow day at a creative agency and the reason lies in the competition of today’s fast-growing market and ever-changing trends.
There are different kinds of marketing and advertising agencies that specialize in different areas for example some only work in digital marketing and advertising services while some only offer conventional and guerrilla marketing services. Both these marketing techniques have their own benefits and charms, and both compliment each other very well for every brand. It depends on the brand and the product which technique and method suit them the best, which in turn leads to the choice of type of advertising agency the brand chooses to work with and market its product.
Although there are differences in conventional and digital marketing agencies, there are a few core elements and departments which are the same.
DESIGNS ARE THE SOUL OF ANY MARKETING CAMPAIGN
Whether your creative agency specializes in conventional marketing and advertising services or digital marketing services, designers and design make the soul of it. The design has to be most impactful for the marketing campaign to work out. A design has to speak to the audience at the right time and in the right way to give them the right perception about your product, service, or brand.
A bad design can be the cause of failure for a whole campaign. If you ever decide to give marketing and advertising services to a brand or to start your own advertising agency, make sure that the designers which you hire and have working for you are the best in what they do.
A GREAT ACCOUNT MANAGER IS A BLESSING
One thing your advertising agency must have is a great client service department or account manager. This department is responsible for a smooth relationship with your client. When you are giving advertising and marketing services as an advertising agency, there is no room for errors and mistakes.
A little mistake can cause your client a great deal of loss, this is why you need to be extra careful in whatever you are doing and it poses even more importance on the fact that your communication with the client needs to be as precise and clear as possible.
An account manager that can translate your client’s requirements to you in simple words and break them down for you is a great asset for you to invest in. Clear communication will allow your advertising agency to give the best possible advertising and marketing services.
CONTENT MATTERS MORE THAN YOU THINK
A great design catches your attention within a news feed. Or a road full of billboards, but what speaks to you? Words. Words can move you, generate emotions of happiness, empathy, love, care, and excitement. There are two things that should be kept in mind for writing content. It should generate the right emotion with clarity. It should convey the right message and it should be aligned with the design.
If the content does not convey the right message, a design alone may not be enough. Maybe confusing for the viewer which in turn can compromise your marketing campaign. Offering good marketing services also requires great content and a copywriter in your advertising agency who can write catchy and unique copies which speak to people’s hearts.
Content writers are even more crucial for conventional marketing advertising agencies as they require shoots with proper scripts and concepts. A strong script can prove to be the success of your campaign whereas a weak script can cost you a great deal.
A GREAT PRODUCTION TEAM IS A MUST-HAVE!
An advertising agency, that specializes in conventional marketing services, is bound to have shoots every now and then. Although a great shooting idea, theme, concept, and script is necessary if there are no great angles. And a lousy direction to a great script that does not look appealing or eye-catching, can cost you. Not only you will be wasting a great budget of your production, but you will also be risking your campaign.
Advertising agencies specializing in TVC and DVC production need to have a great production team with a cameraman, director, scriptwriter, etc. to make sure that the end product is up to the mark and meets the standards of your marketing and advertising services.
These things are the building blocks for your agency to work at its best potential.
