Know Your Product Inside Out
William Bernbach emphasized the importance of knowing your product inside out when he said: “You have to live with your product, you have to know it through and through, you have to look at it, understand it, love it, then, and only then, you can crystallize in one clear thought, one single theme, what must be conveyed about the product to the consumer”.
When to use

To find out about these things, ask yourself the following questions:
- What does my product do?
