The purpose of this short-term IMC plan is to further develop your ability to critically evaluate current IMC programs and to provide solutions based on learned IMC theories and concepts. This is a great opportunity to practice your planning skills in developing an IMC campaign with inclusion of budgetary and timing constraints.
Based on your report findings in assessment 1 and your creative brief, you are required to design a 6month IMC program for your product/brand that you have opted for in assessment-1. To make your learning experience as close as possible to a “real” word business, you are restricted to a budget of $50 000.
Your short-term plan must include the following:
Marketing communication goal and objective/s Redesigned message Key
Choice of Marketing Communication Mix
6-month media schedule based on the media mix criteria including time and budgetary restrictions
Suggestion of at least three campaign evaluation methods
