PART IV: FabCom’s ‘deep dive’ strategic marketing planning – my crash course
As I joined the team to experience my first “deep dive,” we gathered in the Conference Room. Branding and positioning ideas were being scribbled on a white board and an integrated cross channel, cross media flow chart was mapped out on a wall flanked by copies of creative marketing and advertising concepts. In the center of the room, the strategic marketing document was open on a large computer monitor as sections were developed. Inside the walls of this full service, mid-sized marketing and advertising agency, we were challenged to look deeper within ourselves, tap our well of potential, change our paradigm, take a fresh look at what was there and hardwire new ideas.
