    26. 26. Analysis Media usage is shifting, but traditional media is still valuable An integrated marketing plan that uses multiple media platforms is important in marketing. In order to get noticed in a crowded media space, marketers must use online media. In order to build credibility, marketing must use advertising in traditional media.
    27. 27. Recommendation Move more marketing budget to online, social media and mobile platforms to gain attention while reserving some budget for marketing in traditional media for credibility. The message for all campaigns across integrated marketing channels must be coordinated and consistent so that the target will identify the company across all media channels.
    28. 28. The Take Away • Online or In Decline –Marketers have to integrate and use online marketing channels to get attention and notice, choose the right channels for target • Seven Touches –The rule of multiple interactions across multiple channels with the consumer remains. Marketers need to use multiple platforms, including traditional media to maximize reach and build credibility
    29. 29. Limitations • Limited audience in size, geography, age and scope • Data is aging while media are changing rapidly • Focus was on traditional media consumption, not usage • No detail on radio or TV usage
    30. 30. Proposed Research Opportunities • Extend the research • Expand the audience • Increase questions online, reduce media outlets with more focus? • Expand questions for online media usage? • How are each media used, and how often? • Do some channels serve a narrower focus? • Follow up interviews for more qualitative data • Are the differences in media usage statistically significant enough to make an impact?
    31. 31. Future Research Questions • Which social media works best for each marketing objective? • How do consumers use SM in consumer buying behavior? Does SM influence consumer buying behavior? • How does SM amplify WOM? • How can SM be used to increase brand loyalty and brand enthusiasts? • What is each SM best used for in MarCom? • Can a best practice model for IMC be created?
