This may seem a bit chaotic at times, but the process encourages input from diverse points of view, simulates healthy debate allows strong ideas to emerge regardless of the source. This process actually leads to the best possible creative. The most important step lies in deciding what anadvertisement should say and to whom it should say it. All it needs to do is decide who buys and uses the products and why. In order to spend the media budget wisely, agency must know what they read or watch so that they will see the ads. Advertising mostly focuses on the target customers. Agency often struggles a lot to make the clients understand the creative communication they made and why the target customers will like it & buy the products.
