Boot Camp for Account Planning, San Francisco
An account planner is logical yet creative, inquisitive and intuitive. Planners conduct their own research and study existing trends and data to provide key insights into consumer behavior. The information collected is deconstructed, analyzed and re-assembled to develop a document called a creative brief. The brief gives the creative team the goals they need to accomplish, detailing the branding issues involved and the relevant consumer behaviors. This gives creatives the tools they need to develop campaigns that are funny, tear-jerking or thought-provoking—yet effective and strategically sound. Graduates of the Account Planning Boot Camp are actively recruited by advertising agencies, brands and media companies like Facebook and Google.
Are you analytical and creative? Start now! Application deadline for the Boot Camp for Account Planners in New York is May 27th.
