Under Think It – A Marketing Strategy Guidebook for Everyone – by Adam Pierno

Now available on Amazon! Strategy should be the beating heart of an ad agency or marketing team. So much pumps through the team that there’s little time for training. Plus, people on the inside have been making it overly complicated for years. For those trying to break into strategy or improve at the craft, (and it is a craft) there’s no way to learn – besides getting thrown in the fire or on piddly starter assignments.

Finally, someone has put together a comprehensive set of tools for planners and strategists that won’t bore you to sleep.

Published by Santy. Cover and design by Samuel Ybarra
