ASSIGNMENT 3: Creative Brief.
1: Who is my target?
My name is Bruce, and I live in Hot Springs, Arkansas. I am 30 years old, married with two kids. My entire family has used Tabasco brand since I can remember and that’s where I discovered it.
2: Where are we in the mind of our target?

5: What is the consumer promise? (The big idea)
HOT SAUCE IS AWESOME. It has the best taste and spiciness while keeping it old school and family made. They are the top in their market share and they know it.
6: What is the supporting evidence of the big idea?
Tabasco is number one. That’s just all there is to it. They have the best flavor, best history for 141 years since the 1860s. They are the number one manufacturer and seller of hot sauce, and the Tabasco label is on more things than many competitors.
7: What is the tone of voice for the advertising?
