What some marketers are sayingabout integrated marketing……• “ One benefit of integrated marketing is that its the only type that will always be around - individual channels wax and wane with the constant evolution of the media ecosystem (often marching in lockstep with technology), but the system as a whole persists, and knowing how to maintain a presence within it is a valuable skill.” Jason Amunwa, Product Manager @ digital-telepathy• “No longer is it enough to just push the same message in each channel. Today, true IM leverages all the channels to tell a combined message using each channel to deliver the part of the message it [the channel] is best suited to deliver. “ Tom Martin, Founder @ Converse Digital• “Integrated marketing lets you "supersize" your efforts by harnessing all relevant channels to meet your goals. You can use the different channels to highlight facets of your offering and reach different segments, but at the end of the day, you need all the efforts to move you toward your objective.” Jean Shields-Fleming, award winning content strategist
