6 Clever Ideas: If I Were Marketing @ An Ad Agency


An ad agency comes up with marketing ideas for brands. I thought ‘Why not create ideas for the creators themselves (an agency for the agency, perhaps)? Just to see if my ideas are creative enough for a creative powerhouse. Without further ado, lets dip in.

If I Were Marketing @ An Ad Agency…

My TG- Marketing Managers of Mid to Large sized corporates

My Marketing Objective- Bring the agency to the notice of marketing managers atleast once, in an unforgettable manner with the least cost

Main Media- Direct Mail (More memorable because of lack of clutter; Online pitching is too crowded; Longer shelf life for the communication material)

Creative Marketing Ideas:

  1. Dying to work with you

Courier or hand deliver wobblers shaped like ghosts with the message- Dying to work with you-www.adagency.com. It will look entertaining and definitely be memorable. Also, ghosts are all the rage currently, what with them being Snapchat logo.

2. Ready to deliver your campaign

4. Coasters with share buttons
