An integrated marketing solution uses the most appropriate media and communications techniques to achieve marketing objectives. There is no lead technique and the solution could include any of the following: * Advertising: any paid form of non-personal presentation of ideas, goods, or services by an identified sponsor. * Personal selling: oral conversations by either telephone or face-to-face, between sales persons and prospective customers. * Public relations: to generate publicity through the media by designing programs that involve different activities such as developing a brochure, sponsoring an open house, staging special events, publishing a newsletter, etc. * Sales Promotions: where customers are given a short-term inducement to make an immediate purchase. * Other elements of the communications mix: exhibitions, sponsorships, packaging, and word-of-mouth communications Personal Selling has the ability to close sales, to hold the prospect's attention, to precisely target the prospect and to obtain immediate action. ...read more.


* Market research provides evidence of motives, preferences and attitudes, which will influence not only the copy platform or advertising theme, but also the choice of media through which to express it. * Naming and branding may be initiated by the advertising department or agency, in addition, plays an important role in advertisement design. * The market segment will decide the tone or style of advertising, and the choice of media. * Pricing can be a vital part in the appeal of the copy, is the product value for money, a bargain or a luxury? * Packaging is a vital aspect of advertising, it is itself a form of advertising, especially at the point of sale, as in a supermarket when the package often has to identify the product and literally sell it off the shelf. * Sales promotion can augment the advertising. * The product image will be projected by advertising and public relations. * Public relations activities help bridge gaps between advertising campaigns, and help maintain long-term brand recognition. There are many ways to advertise products and services. However, the most effective method of reaching the target market must be used. Below are just a few examples of advertising vehicles: * Newspapers * Magazines * Radio * Television * Direct Mail * Yellow Pages * Mail shots * Promotional Items (e.g. pens, pencils, mugs, etc.) * Transit advertising For an advertising campaign to be successful, planning is important for success to occur. This means that objectives need to be identified and planned accordingly. It consists of the development, placement, running, and evaluation of the advertising over time. In addition, it must have a clear, easily remembered message that is communicated in an exciting and memorable way. An effective campaign involves the following steps: 1. Market research and analysis 2. Defining objectives 3. Budgeting 4. Media selection 5. Creative development, unless you have in in-house advertising/marketing staff, you will use outsource this portion. ...read more.


Products can be salient through publicity and innovative advertising schemes, which boost product recognition among consumers. "Why is the market leader often 10 times as big as say the tenth biggest brand? The evidence says that it is not due to brand differentiation. Each brand's customers do not look at their brand as being very different. Instead, what differs is the number of people to whom each brand is salient". (Ehrenberg et al., 1997:7) Advertising is the most powerful tool within the marketing mix in creating an image and the tool most evident in peoples lives, it is everywhere, on till receipts, in newspapers, on the radio, in magazines, on the television, on billboards, on trains, buses etc. Consumers often confuse the other tools as advertising; this tool has massive exposure that can be very hard to ignore completely.
