  3. 3. Marketing communications are messages and related media used to communicate with a market. Marketing communications is the "promotion" part of the "marketing mix" or the "four Ps": price, place, promotion, and product. It can also refer to the strategy used by a company or individual to reach their target market through various types of communication.
  4. 4. Key Objectives of Marketing Communication : 1. To inform your target audience about your brand. 2. To persuade them to use your product or service. 3. To remind them through various marketing channels about your product or services.

  6. 6. Advertising • Advertising is often the most prominent element of the communication mix. • Advertising includes all messages a business pays to deliver through a medium to reach a targeted audience. • Since it involves the majority of paid messages, companies often allocate significant amounts of the marketing budget to the advertising function. • While it can be costly, the advertiser has ultimate control over the message delivered, since it pays the television or radio station, print publication or website for placement.
  7. 7. AIDA of Advertising Attention Interest Desire Action
  8. 8. AIDA of Advertising ATTENTION • You must first capture the viewer’s attention — an essential component of any ad campaign. • Most campaigns rely on a mix of visual stimuli to accomplish this, using images to help an ad stand out and create a lasting impression. • Text is then employed to further grab attention, enticing the reader to continue reading in search of more information.
  9. 9. AIDA of Advertising INTEREST • Consumers don't actually need most of the products they buy but think they do. • Being able to establish a need in the mind of a consumer is the cornerstone of an effective ad campaign. • Creating a personal link helps build trust; hinting at something special to come cements their interest in what you have to say.
  10. 10. AIDA of Advertising DESIRE • This is the stage where you stoke the flames of their desire until they are absolutely certain they have to have what you are selling. • This is often accomplished through the problem-solution technique. Your consumer has a problem — you have the solution. The solution is so amazing, they simply cannot live without it. • This phase also covers another vital facet in any advertising campaign — what's in it for them. This will build the desire you need them to feel to make that decision.
  11. 11. AIDA of Advertising ACTION • You've attracted their attention, built their interest and fanned their desire. Now it's time to get them to take action. • Whether it's going to your website, picking up the phone or sending an order, the last section of your advertisement needs to contain a powerful call to action.

  20. 20. 6 Elements of Good PR 1. Good PR is telling the client what they need to hear instead of what they want to hear. Good PR recognizes that the best “PR strategy” needs to be followed-up with the client’s good products/services or else it’s all a vain and wasted effort that harms everyone’s reputation.
  21. 21. 2. Good PR is not just about the over-glorified launch. Good PR helps build and sustain a groundswell of brand support — incrementally changing consumer behaviors via a steady stream of relevant and candid communication to both “media” and “consumers.”
  22. 22. 3. Good PR celebrates the client’s customers in an inclusive, non-exploitive way. And, good PR welcomes the input of “neutrals” and especially “critics,” and adapts strategy accordingly.
  23. 23. 4. Good PR is proactive in idea generation and responsive in a crisis. Good PR finds the balance.
  24. 24. 5. Good PR is measurable. (And yet also hard to measure, since most clients want to measure different things.)
  25. 25. 6. Good PR leverages pre-existing relationships with influential people — relationships built on trust and credibility earned over years of service.
  26. 26. PROMOTION • Sales promotion refers to short term use of incentives or other promotional activities that stimulate the customer to buy the product. • Sales promotion techniques are very useful because they bring: (a) Short and immediate effect on sale.

Sales promotion adds to the effectiveness of advertisement efforts. 4. Aid to other Promotion Tools: • Sales promotion technique makes other promotion techniques more effective. Salesmen find it easy to sell products on which incentives are available. MERITS of SALES PROMOTION
