Show the work first.

Here’s an idea.

Show the work first. Then get the strategy approved.

I know it’s not gonna happen. But it would save so much aggravation.

This is not quite the same thing as Mark Fenske’s “no one ever wrote a good ad by looking at a strategy.”

It’s more “No client ever looked at a strategy and had any idea what kind of advertising it would lead to.”

Showing the work first would lead to better strategies. And fewer tears.
