Media buyers possess the data on ad performance and business goals. But they don’t necessarily know how to create new iterations faster or provide visibility into insights. Creative Strategists lead the people who will define the messaging and ultimately produce the ad—copywriters, illustrators, designers, editors. They also serve as the creative’s connection to the left brain. A good Creative Strategist knows how to look at data, break it down into actionable insights, and translate that knowledge into new ads. Simply put, Creative Strategists merge emotion and logic. They find the sweet spot between creative theory and media reality to maximize marketing results.
