message  Receiver- the person who reads, hears, or sees and processes the information contained in the message or advertisement  Decoding- the process by which the receiver interprets the sender’s message  Noise- any interference that stems from competing messages, a lack of clarity in the message, or a flaw in the medium; a problem for all communication channels  Feedback Loop- allows the receiver to communicate with the sender and thereby informs the sender whether the message was received and decoded properly  AIDA Model- a common model of the series of mental stages through which consumers move as a result of marketing communications: Awareness leads to Interest, which lead to Desire, which leads to Action  Brand Awareness- measures how many consumers in a market are familiar with the brand and what it stands for; created through repeated exposures of the carious brand elements in the firm’s communications to consumers  Aided Recall-occurs when consumers recognize a name that has been presented to them  Top-of-Mind Awareness- a prominent place in a people’s memories that triggers a response without them having to put any thought into it  Lagged Effect- a delayed response to a marketing communication campaign  Advertising- a paid form of communication from an identifiable source, delivered through a communication channel, and designed to persuade the receiver

forecasted sales have been budgeted  Frequency- measure of how often the audience is exposed to a communication within a specified period of time  Reach- measure of consumers’ exposure to marketing

see how that item would look in your house  Guitar Hero Commercial: Metallica Guitar Hero has four basketball coaches in it and was shown during the Final Four is an example of the communications process Material:  IMC represents the promotion part of the four Ps  New Communications Realities: o Fragmentation o Information Technology o Model Shift  From broadcasting to “narrowcasting”- more inclined to position a product in different ways in different markets  The IMC is how firms integrate and coordinate communication channels o The goal is to deliver clear, consistent, and compelling messages o The idea is to try to maximize your communication by utilizing a variety of channels  Elements of an IMC Strategy: o Advertising o Sales Promotion o Public Relations o Personal Selling o

moving away from traditional advertising  Tools: telephone, mail, catalogs, email, mobile marketing, ect. o Online Marketing  Communications Process: o Starts with the sender (the firm) wanting to communicate a message to the consumer, the transmitter encodes the message the firm wants to communicate, communications channel is the media you choose to pitch your message, the receiver is the consumer who decodes the message from the firm o The sender and the transmitter have no control over how the receiver decodes the message o Noise inhibits the receiver from decoding the message in the intended manner  AIDA Model: o Awareness  Want to gain the attention of your target market so you can go through the rest of the model  The more channels you have the easier it is to create awareness  Aided Recall: on a multiple-choice test you can see the answer and it triggers your memory  Top of Mind Awareness: highest level of awareness o Interest  Want consumers to be intrigued

effect on your brand by advertising and communicating too much  Measuring Success: o Frequency: measuring how often a target market is exposed to your communication o Reach: what percentage of the target population that saw a specific add at least once o Gross Rating Points: frequency X reach  Marketing Communications Budget: o Rule of Thumb Methods  Affordable (available) Method  Worst method, but is the easiest to implement  Just taking your leftover budget and putting it towards promotion  This makes the annual budget really inconsistent and advertising/communications become the last priority  Percentage-of-Sales Method  Looks at forecasted and current sales  Pick a percentage of your sales to become your promotional budget  Issue is sales are impacting promotion and how do you determine what percentage to use  Competitive Parity Method  What does the market/competition spends o Objective-and-Task Method  Best method to use  Lay out the objectives for the firm for
