Summary Overview The action-oriented AIDA model is a practical approach for looking at what promotion tries to accomplish with each individual customer. The relationship of the AIDA model to the three promotion objectives and the product adoption process covered in Chapter 6 is illustrated on the slide. The Four Promotion Jobs in the AIDA Model Attention . Promotion first seeks to break through the clutter of information in the market place and get the attention of a person in the target market. Interest . Next, Promotion seeks to arouse curiosity and stimulate greater interest in the product. Desire . Promotion then seeks to get an emotional response, a “buy-in” whereby the customer has a strong desire for the product. Action . Finally, Promotion helps the customer take action, “buy now.”

Publicity – communication about the organization and/or its products transmitted through mass media at no charge
Advertising Vs. Public Relation Advertising Public Relation Company pays for ad space. They know exactly when the ad will air or be publish. Get free publicity for the company. Getting free media exposure for the company and its products/services. Company has creative control on what goes into the ad. No control over how the media presents the company’s information, and company is not obligated to cover the event. Can run ads over and over for as long as budget allows. The company exposure only once on a press release. They won’t publish the same article. Buzz words are used to motivate people to buy your product. Strictly writing in a formal news format, there is no blatant commercial messages in the articles/speech/press release.
The communications world is split in two—between the things you do on the telephone and the things you do on the computer.
The split exists because most real-time (synchronous) communications--like telephone calls and voice mail--depend on one network, while message based (asynchronous) communications--like e-mail--depend on a separate, incompatible network.
Real-time (synchronous) communications run on the Public Switched Telephone Network (PSTN). Asynchronous communications run on packet-based networks like Ethernet (IP).
The split creates problems, lots of them. Phones aren't as intuitive as they should be: just try to start a three-way call without hanging up on someone. Computers can check your e-mail, but not your voice mail. And then there's the enormous cost of purchasing, maintaining, and upgrading two complex infrastructures.
To get your phones and your computers talking, you'd have to tear out your entire telephone system, dump your PBX, replace every desk phone, swap out every phone jack. In short, you'd have to start from scratch.
Distributed teams need easy-to-use, self-provisioned tools so that team members can share documents, tasks, calendar data, and presence information within and outside the corporate network, with assurance that this information is better-protected with strong security.
Corporate management needs electronic record and content management, e-mail retention, and compliance controls.
This concept includes many online and offline marketing channels.
Online marketing channels include any e-marketing campaigns or programs, from search engine optimization (SEO), pay-per-click, affiliate, email, banner to latest web related channels for webinar, blog, RSS, podcast, and Internet TV.
Offline marketing channels are traditional print (newspaper, magazine), mail order, public relations, industry analyst relations billboard, radio, and television.
A management concept that is designed to make all aspects of marketing communication such as advertising, sales promotion, public relations, and direct marketing work together as a unified force, rather than permitting each to work in isolation.
In practice, the goal of IMC is to create and sustain a single look or message in all elements of a marketing campaign.
A successful integrated marketing communication plan will customize what is needed for the client based on time, budget and resources to reach target or goals.
Small business can start an integrated marketing communication plan on a small budget using a website, email, etc.
Large corporation can start an integrated marketing communication plan on a large budget using print, mail order, radio, TV plus many other online ad campaigns.
From media advertising to multiple forms of communication (including promotions, product placements, mailers...)
From mass media to more specialized media, which are centered around specific target audiences.
From a manufacturer-dominated market to a retailer-dominated market. The market control has transferred into the consumer's hands.
From general-focus advertising and marketing to data-based marketing.
From low agency accountability to greater agency accountability. Agencies now play a larger role in advertising than ever before.
From traditional compensation to performance-based compensation. This encourages people to do better because they are rewarded for the increase in sales or benefits they cause to the company.
From limited Internet access to widespread Internet availability. This means that people can not only have access to what they want 24/7 but that advertisers can also target different people 25 hours a day.
The arrival of unified communications signals the beginning of the convergence of VoIP telephony (which provides the ability to route telephone calls through the Internet), email, instant messaging, mobile communications, and audio and video Web conferencing into a single platform that shares a common directory and common developer tools.
Unified communications also takes advantage of standard communication protocols such as SIP (Session Initiation Protocol) to route communications to the right people on the right device.
Personal and intuitive: One of the most important goals is to make communication and information access seamless and personal, no matter the location or what device. Presence—which provides information about availability—will enable a party to reach the right person on the first try.
Intelligent information agent software that understands how you prefer to work will give you control over who can contact you, on what device and at what times. SIP standards and software-based call management will make communications richer and more intuitive, and provide seamless transitions from one communications mode to the next.
Convenient and integrated: Today, when you contact a colleague, you probably need to switch from the application you are working in to an address book and then to a device (like a telephone) or a different application (such as email). Unified communications will enable you to collaborate directly from the application where you are working.
Integration with Microsoft Office will help make Microsoft Outlook the center for all types of communications experiences and provide seamless access to collaboration tools such as Microsoft SharePoint. By delivering a standards-based platform, Microsoft will enable developers to integrate communications into applications that provide even greater value, convenience and power.
Flexible and trustworthy: Unified communications will enable organizations to consolidate their communications systems into an integrated platform that utilizes a single identity for each user and provides a common management and compliance infrastructure. This will enable IT departments to significantly improve communications and collaboration capabilities while reducing complexity and lowering total cost of ownership.
Built on a platform that is secure and reliable, Microsoft unified communications technologies are already helping leading companies achieve groundbreaking TCO. Ebay, for example, has lowered its per-mailbox costs by 70 percent. At Nissan, collaboration technologies have helped save more than US$135 million. And Siemens has unified 130 business units into a single Active Directory.
