The digital age has reshaped advertising—how it’s viewed by consumers as well as how it’s approached by those in charge of developing it. These days, advertising is frequently a tactical endeavor. Should we be on the new social platform? Should we purchase this data or leverage that influencer?... all at the expense of strategy. But advertising often fails to create the needed impact. This failure is the result of not taking a rigorous, systematic approach to defining suitable goals, effective targeting, and creating an insight-driven message to compel the behavior change needed to get results.

While tactical decisions aren’t to blame for the failure of most advertising efforts, your best efforts won’t succeed without a solid strategy behind them. Kellogg's Advertising and Marketing Communication Strategy program has been designed to help you create a sound advertising strategy, judge an ad’s effectiveness, understand the essentials of media planning, and learn how to avoid the most common execution pitfalls advertisers face in alignment to your business goals.
