Spinning Web 2.0 into an Integrated
Marketing Communications Plan
• Foley’s advertising agency had provided her with a
plan to bring her brand to three social media outlets :
number of users
and also high
The agency would develop a line of virtual UnME Jeans
that would be sold to avatars on Zwinktopia through a virtual
UnME Jeans retail store.
As each special edition jean was released in the real world,
UnME would simultaneously release a virtual version of it to
generate online buzz about the product.
The budget for the Zwinktopia program included a one-time
charge of $200,000 for upfront creative development and a
recurring charge of $100,000 per year for operation,
maintenance, and updating.
Develop a brand profile Image.
Purchase targeted banner advertising on facebook – Targeting
women interest in fashion.
Creating a UnMe widget.
The budget for the Facebook program included a one-time
charge of $350,000 for creative development of the
profile page, widget, and banner ads. UnME would then
pay $150,000 for a three-month advertising program on
Facebook, which included a brand profile page and
targeted banner advertising.
Three four-minute YouTube video ads- that
would collectively tell the stories of teen girls who
embodied the brand essence of UnME.
Teen girls would be invited to upload videos about
themselves or their friends that showed how they
forged their own unique identities and how they
promoted tolerance and appreciation for differences of
opinions and tastes
Adding Videos and ads BRAND CHANNEL
The YouTube program costs included a one-time up-
front fee of $300,000 for creative development of the
brand channel and the video ads. The budget also
included a $300,000 media buy with YouTube,
which sold the brand channel and the in-video ads at a
CPM of $40.
Foley was also concerned about the lack of control she
would have over the content into which her advertising was
Advertising in the new social media was more risky,
as much of the content on sites like Second Life,
Zwinktopia, YouTube, and Facebook was risqué, lewd,
and/or inappropriate for her brand and might offend her
Foley ought to choose developing a UnME brand profile
page for Facebook and stick with this solution provided by
the advertising agency.
This option is economic than Zwinktopia option but
expensive than Youtube.
Facebook –Seemed Better Option
• Highest visited site on internet
• Time spent is also quite high
• People can discuss about their products on the profile
page and give their views to better the product.
• Expected increase in number of people joining Facebook
UnMe will surely benefit in their sales after
integrating Traditional media with Web 2.0 . It would
increase Brand awareness
