Transcript

  • 1. IMC Partners and Cross-Functional Organization
  • 2. Organizational Perspective
    • Organization is the Foundation of IMC
    • Since there are so many partners involved in managing brand relationships, integration is an organizational challenge.
    • IMC often involves organizational restructuring.
    • A company cannot build relationships externally until it builds them internally.
  • 3. Overview of the Marketing Communication Business
    • Basic players in today’s marketplace:
      • Organizations
      • Media
      • Agencies
    • This creates a “golden triangle,” where customers are at the center of the planning.
  • 4. The Golden Triangle
  • 5. Key Points About the Triangle
    • Organization within the triangle can exist only if there are:
    • Media to deliver brand messages
    • Customers to buy goods and services
    • However:
    • Media can exist only if they sell enough advertising.
    • Customers must have knowledge of the products they need or want in order to buy.
    • As companies grow, the triangle becomes more complex.
  • 6. The Bigger Picture of the Marketing Communication Players
  • 7. The Corporate Side
    • Both for-profit and not-for-profit organizations are businesses with customers and other stakeholders with whom they communicate and build relationships.
    • Departments within businesses are often job specific.

    • Agency gets valuable feedback
    • Agency and company can determine how to work better together.

    • Client trust can significantly affect the quality of its agency’s work, the smoothness of the working relationship, and the effectiveness of an IMC program.
    • A client’s attitude toward its agency – how it sees its agency – often determines the level of trust and respect.
