MKTG71-604: Communication Strategies


Effective communication with a target market relies on orchestrating a variety of communications tools (advertising, promotions, selling and publicity) and media (TV, print, electronic, radio, POP) in order to achieve desired outcomes for brands. Increasingly, customers distribute their media use across many media and marketers choose communication media from an ever-expanding range of possibilities. Thus, a critical question for communication strategy in the 21st century is how to create an integrated communication strategy that takes advantage of media strengths and maintains cost effectiveness. This subject emphasises customer media behaviour, the application of communication tools (including electronic), and cross-media effectiveness.
