Great ads should be like fly paper that feels good. Think about your favorite campaigns – you love seeing them over and over again. Stickiness is one of the most overlooked and most important aspects of a great campaign.

So look at your strategy statement and your advertising message. If they’re the same, you’re in trouble.
