Social Media Marketing is often treated as a separaet silo - reality is always that media creation and curation should be platform neutral.
It is easy to get hoodwinked by the new NEW thing but the reality is there is very rarely anything truly new, rather media and communications are evolutionary - there is no end to iteration and innovation - there is also no end to wrong turns so the most secure strategic path is to engage with the new to the extent you remain on message to your target audience/community.
This article stresses the importance of integration in brands’ marketing, especially in today’s world where online activities, and in particular social media, are more involved in consumer’s lives. Integration is particularly important due to the diverse range of communication tools available to consumers and the access to them any time of the day, anywhere. This means essentially that all the brand’s activities and in particular communications, need to culminate to present a certain image and experience for consumers. Integrating social, content and search in an internet strategy is important to build all areas of a brand’s presence online, together considering what interests consumers and relevant topics. Therefore, does it not make sense to integrate in marketing? Especially if it means a higher likelihood of your integrated marketing messages are remembered, with the use of traditional media and direct marketing as platforms. When there are so many ways to communicate with potential consumers, finding a way to streamline and unify what messages brands are sending out, not only benefits the brand in terms of image, reputation and ROI, but also the consumer- mainly in their associations and recall of the brand.
