Key Takeaways

  1. Design and understand the product purchase path – awareness, considers, is interested in, likes, prefers, purchases
  2. Art is the idea, not the image
  3. Demonstrate the context – consumers don’t buy a product because of the product; they buy it because they want to make their lives better
  4. A priority does not include “and”
  5. If you’re being truthful, it will feel risky
  6. Admitting flaws elevates credibility
