This book is a step-by-step guide to producing a sound foundation for advertising: one that will serve as the springboard to inspire powerful creative expression. Rich in cases from the evolving Indian context, Planning for Power Advertising offers an understanding of how strategic advertising is created. It takes the reader through cases and analyses of what worked or did not work in the marketplace.

For advertising professionals, this is a manual to create a robust advertising brief. For students of advertising and marketing, Planning for Power Advertising is a simulation exercise from which they will learn how to apply the principles that will help them in their future careers.
