Key takeaways from Ojo's video interview:
- Have a fundamental belief that a great idea can come from anywhere. The Creative Effectiveness category at Cannes is presumably important to marketers, but it's about coming to the festival with an open mind, looking at your business from a number of perspectives. All the different categories allow you to do that, and you'll be surprised where you get inspirations.
- A presentation about Jamie Oliver's YOU-app talked about micro-actions. For brands like Durex and KY, there are many points of decision-making before the moment of desire. A brand's job, Ojo says, is to insert itself along the entire micro-action continuum.
- Durex launches campaigns in 60 countries globally. To make its work relevant across so many cultures, Ojo advocates focusing on human insights versus consumer insights. For example, the the need for intimacy versus the act of sex. We may not all be on the same page about sex itself, but we are on the same frequency when it comes to intimacy, she says.
