Client: JWT

Brief:  Agency Initiative - Introduce clients to the greater network’s content development capability

Solve:  PROD Content Consultancy /Studio - a proprietary JWT offering created to help identify culturally relevant opportunities for clients interested in engaging with consumers via content

I developed the idea for a data-led content studio to help JWT create richer, more engaging creative for brands seeking to connect with their target - one designed to  uniquely harnesses the in-house capabilities of JWT Intelligence and its data-analytics team to set creators up for content development success in a growing data-oriented marketing environment.
PROD was specifically developed by a small core team I assembled (creative technologists, creatives, data-analysts and trend-forecasters,) to give content creators the ability to explore specific areas of consumer-led interests and by extension, create better content for brands looking  to connect with their target.

It takes a totally different data approach, eschewing the more traditional optimization-oriented methodology, and using data gathering / analytics differently, and reframes the use of data (qualitative and quantitative) for clients and creatives alike.

How PROD uses data for content development:
Instead of using data to validate final creative execution, we developed a way to use it up front. Through PROD, data is mined and analyzed to uncover more relevant key cultural and trending insights that identify white space areas of opportunity for brands in search of greater connection with their target.  These cultural insightsdetermine the “conversations” the brand
can participate in and sponsor / spaces they can occupy - an angle for subsequent content production used to  influence the more crucial part of content development - the front end.

The Logic:
Using the data this way accomplishes two things; a.) it increases a client’s confidence in the content development process as they can point to specific findings which support the areas being explored, and b.) provide creative teams with the right set-up to explore an area already validated as rich and fruitful - giving content creators the ability to focus on producing a more engaging and compelling execution for the brand.
