Pick three well-known brands. Middle of the road. Nothing too cool (don’t do Nike or Apple). Nothing too small (don’t do a local yoga shop or tattoo parlor).

Make a campaign for each brand.

Find a target, and a problem that you’ll solve for the target, and how your brand solves that problem. That is the basis of forming a campaign. Think of three ads for your campaign. Make one an adlob (like a print ad), another is an online ad idea, and the third is a stunt or activation. All three of these ads should match with the overall campaign idea.

So, at my workplace (university), we're essentially eliminating any full-time position if it's not currently filled.
