I believe it's essential to do a good job saying the right thing.

I define effective advertising as planned communication that achieves predetermined objectives developed cooperatively by the client and myself. It is an outgrowth of a disciplined planning process that reviews client objectives, product strengths and weaknesses, competition, target market segments and customer needs. It is directed at a preselected target audience, and has as its focus a preselected market position, both of which have been clearly defined. It uses media that reaches the target audience in an efficient and cost-effective manner.
