Innovate or die: creativity as the center for the success of your business.

In a business world that constantly demands transformation from us, knowing how to innovate and creatively stand out is essential if your goal is to promote your company and prosper with it. Following the same patterns as always and adhering to strategies that used to be successful can mean that your business is digging its own grave, destined to disappear.

Hand in hand with constant transformation and change, the question inevitably arises about how we achieve innovation. Creativity, and above all how we understand and apprehend it in our marketing strategies as well as in content creation, plays a fundamental role in our path to achieving business success. Discover with Maggiore Marketing why creativity and the premise of "innovate or die" should be present in all aspects of your business.


The first thing you must remove from your imagination is the idea that "creativity" is limited to an area dedicated to the dissemination and advertising of your brand, to designers and artists responsible for consistent branding, or to teams designated for content creation for your social media. For challenges related to communication with customers and even measurement and data strategies, being creative and innovative is crucial.


As a second important point, you must consider that being creative nowadays includes fields that were not considered as such for a long time; today more than ever, imagination and artificial intelligence; science and art; users and creatives; brand identity and spontaneity are getting closer.


Let's now return to the central topic and focus on the question of why innovation is important for the success of a brand. We have already talked in other articles about the importance of creating not only content but also products or services that are relevant to the market, that stand out above the rest of the companies, to maintain the attention of customers and to finally decide on you. Knowing how to innovate not only brings benefits in terms of brand visibility but also in other aspects such as reducing costs or improving efficiency. Moreover, having a good innovation team or strategy is useful for the adaptability of the company to market changes, trends, and consumer needs.

Being innovative is one thing, but if we don't know how to implement the novelties in an attractive way for the market, innovation will be of little use. That is why we say that creativity must be at the center of innovation if we are aiming for business success. Being creative is fundamental for innovation because it allows us to develop new and unique ideas in an attractive way, think outside the box, find solutions to different problems in an original way, and find new ways to achieve our objectives with efficiency always in mind. The most important thing about this is to bear in mind that being creative not only influences the creation of products and services but also the improvement of processes and marketing and organizational strategies.

With this last point at the center, here are some ideas to encourage creativity in your business and see the benefits that its implementation can bring in the long term:

  1. Having an environment that fosters creativity is essential. Create open and common work areas, rest spaces, whiteboards for brainstorming or group reminders, and spaces for informal meetings.

  2. Make sure your entire team has access to the tools and technologies that allow them to do creative work. Remember that technology, if used correctly, can be an excellent ally for creativity.

  3. Promote collaboration. By allowing people to work together and share ideas, collaboration, communication, and creativity are encouraged.

  4. Train your team in creative thinking techniques, providing them with opportunities for personal and professional development and growth.

  5. Encourage the team to question current strategies and the status quo, and push them to challenge existing ideas to promote innovation.

  6. Encourage experimentation. The current market promotes and drives a culture of experimentation, so it is crucial to know what works and what doesn't, to try new ideas or projects to demonstrate what will help the growth of your business.

On the other hand, but no less important, we have the creativity required for creating content on social media and other distribution platforms. Presenting content in an attractive, original, and relevant way is crucial for the positioning of your brand, so creativity will be key to differentiating yourself from your competition, attracting new active and loyal followers whose presence demonstrates the existence of a community around your brand, generating impact and lasting connection with the audience.


In summary, we can say that innovation is a crucial axis for the success of a brand and that creativity is the center for innovation. Fostering creativity, not only within the creative teams per se, can be useful for the development of new projects and ideas, making your business remain relevant to the audience, keeping pace with the transformations that the market demands to stand out above the competition and continue directing your company towards success.
