There is more than one way to do research with different levels of effectiveness. With over 60% of adult Americans viewing social media as their primary source of information, observing what’s being said online is a great practice for pulling inspiration. Find what’s working for yourself and others on social platforms and center your creative concepts around those successes.

Personalize your work by knowing who your audience is! Creating character profiles helps to cater your campaign to an appropriate audience. Spend time specifying who you’re speaking to. That way, you can make the most of your messaging. Learn information about your audiences like demographics, goals, values, and preferences for content and channels to guide your thought process before creating.
Keying Into Keywords
Search Engine Optimization (SEO) is an important tool to be mindful of because it increases online traffic. According to 71% of marketers, using strategic keywords was their number one strategy for SEO.
