It introduces the concept of IMC and what it can accomplish, then leads the reader through the thinking that is necessary to understand the issues involved with IMC strategic planning, how to develop effective executions within an IMC program, and then how to optimize delivery to the appropriate target audience. It will be an essential text for undergraduate, graduate and executive students. * Strategic Integrated Marketing Comunications is a critical success factor in building strong brands and strong companies. * A new discipline IMC now lies at the heart of Marketing Strategy. * Corporate image identity and reputation have never been more important and this book is the essential text in the field.This comprehensive new textbook deals with all aspects of Integrated Marketing Communication from a strategic perspective.
