Marketers are beginning to understand that their brands live in the connections, and that they must seize the opportunity by creating an integrated communications strategy. The objective of marketing communications is to enhance brand equity by moving customers along a customer experience path to purchase that leads to advocacy for the brand. Marcom plays an essential role to inform and educate customers and prospects about brands, new products their benefits and to enhance brand image. The IMC goal is to deliver the right message to the right audience at the right time in the right place.
