Michael's comment, September 26, 2013 2:50 AM
Again I think you found a great article and your insight is spot on. I think the article sums up the communications mix quite well, especially the importance of evaluating a campaign. I think too often it is easy to plan an extensive campaign but forget about evaluating it - evaluation is the time to see what worked/didn't work and improve on it for the next campaign so it is obviously critically important.
Sam Wilkinson's comment, September 26, 2013 4:18 AM
I have to agree with michael, you articles and insights are awesome. With this article I like the emphasis on measuring a campaigns success as it is often the part of a campaign where marketers can learn the most .
Blake Holmes's comment, September 26, 2013 6:21 AM
This article was great and furthered my undertstanding of the importance of planning and evaluating when creating an Integrated Marketing campaign. Also the idea of measuring objectives is crucial to gauge whether or not a campaign is successful or not.
