Integrated Marketing Communications (IMC) is the coordination of all points of contact an organization has with the marketplace. It is the ‘face’ an organisation presents to the many audiences and publics with whom it has contact. Marketing communication vehicles such as advertising, public relations, direct marketing, sales promotion, the internet and all forms of media are highly connected and have multiple communication functions including those relating to Corporate Social Responsibility, Sustainability and Social Innovation. This course explores the development of the IMC approach and relevant contemporary issues surrounding the implementation of an IMC approach; it also provides an overview of communication tools and an introduction to the IMC planning process.
