    Where do you guys get inspiration for marketing campaigns?
    Sometimes I am empty on creativity.
    Wasting many days / weeks in an unproductive state of mind.

    Do drugs help, lol?

    Try meditation, it clears your mind. Then the ideas flow easier.

    If it's not helping you can always go the Mad Men way, drink bourbon all day long :cool:

    In terms of content & design I can copy them.
    But In terms of marketing not.

    Maybe not the same competitors that you looked at for design, but look at marketing materials in your niche - ad copy, flyers, brochures etc that's where I get my inspiration.
    Even cross niche - see what people in different niches are doing with their marketing material to stand out.

    yeah I always look at the marketing methods being used by competitors and even cross niche like dav mentioned. Great way to get inspiration. Don't do drugs lol Although I've noticed that it does work for some out there. Weird. And pretty sad actually.

    Look at what works. Keep doing that and forget everything else. You don't have to be endlessly creative.

    Drugs will only make it more miserable.. Do not focus on those things buddy!

    I usually take a small trip whenever I feel bored of working. This small gap will create a magic inside you.
