How will this be made?
Background: What's the big picture? What's going on in the market? Who are the biggest competitors?
Objective: what is the goal of the ad or campaign? Write a concise statement of the effect the ad should have on consumers. Typically expressed as an action. And frequently focused on what the ad should make the audience think, feel, or do.
Example: The primary objective is to persuade the audience to buy and use O Earth laundry detergent, as well as to create and characterize this new brand.
Target audience: who are we talking to? Who are they? How old are they? Where are they? What is their gender? What is their income and lifestyle? What else do we need to know about them?
Example: We are looking primarily at urban women, 18 - 34, with household incomes over 50K per year. But the most important fact about this audience is that it is evolving, with race and ethnicity reflecting the increasing diversity of the US population. The magic word is "multicultural."
