BRAND POSITIONING STATEMENT Summarise information from sections ABCDE. To whom is this product addressed? What physical and emotional needs does it satisfy? How does it do it? If possible, state copy line or form or words that is the most succinct statement of the products position. DESIRED CONSUMER RESPONSES NOTICE List in order or priority those physical characteristics which we want the consumer to see, hear about and remember.

A. Target audience D. Consumer benefit BRAND ADVERTISING STRATEGY 2.3 Feel A. Target audience B. Source of business 1. Positio-ning 2.2 Believe C. Distinctive performance E. Support Evidence 2.1 Notice 3. Campaign objectives 4. Guidelines Creative brief Action </li> <li> 8. The relationship between the character, the behaviour and th eneeds of the TARGET AUDIENCE (A) and the DISTINCTIVE PERFORMANCE FEATURES (C) of the product provide a CONSUMER BENEFIT (D) which satisfies both physical and emotional needs. SUPPORT EVIDENCE (E) is corroborative of the existence of a CONSUMER BENEFIT (D). The existence of a CONSUMER BENEFIT leads to a SOURCE OF BUSINESS (B). THE CREATIVE BRIEF The POSITIONING STATEMENT (1) besides containing a succinct restatement of target audience and consumer benefit attempts to get as close as possible to a single claim or copy statement in the language of the consumer. The DESIRED CONSUMER RESPONSES (2) should grow naturally from preceding information. NOTICE (2.1) contains the DISTINCTIVE PERFORMANCE FEATURES and the SUPPORT EVIDENCE for them, both on the rational and subjective level. These stimulate BELIEFS (2.2) about what the product does and how this is relevant to the TARGET AUDIENCE. BELIEFS lead to attitudes (FEEL 2.3) which should be in harmony with identified emotional aspirations of TARGET AUDIENCE. It is important to bear in mind that although the communication process is constructed as 1. NOTICE 2. BELIEVE 3. FEEL advertising development takes place in the opposite sequence, i.e. first we decide what responses we require of the TARGET (BELIEVE, FEEL), then we decide what stimuli will produce those responses NOTICE. As each new campaign is developed, it will probably have short term tactical requirements which should be stated in the CAMPAIGN OBJECTIVES (3). EXECUTIONAL GUIDELINES (4) allow for the input of experience and judgement to influence the tone and content of the finished advertising. </li> </ul>
