@Curtis Milner I still think that integrating with consumers on a personal level is an extremely affective way of building a relationship with customers. Where customer response is involved, customer response can dramatically improve aspects of a product or service. A business may have an idea of how to develop and market a product. But may not specifically have a product or service that is attractive to a consumer. But a customer response can help with the improvement of this issue as the response or feedback can help adjust specific aspects of a product. In the end direct marketing can be the most affective way of gaining customers as it is something that the customer is most likely to want and therefore making it a successful idea.

These campaigns successfully engaged consumers which created a creative way to communicate with each consumer participating but also the social network which consumers engaged with throughout the campaign.

What the Heck is Integrated Marketing Anyway?

What the Heck is Integrated Marketing Anyway? | Understanding Intergration | Scoop.it
When I first started my business, several decades ago, I was determined to tell people that, mine was an integrated marketing firm.
Daryl Peterson's insight:

The article explains simply exact what integrated marketing is. In this case marketing has been used in many different channels including media e.g t.v & radio, social media e.g facebook and twitter and newsprint e.g newspapers etc. 

 

The article explains that marketers use intergrated marketing to basically push their ideas across to consumers using differents forms of media while delivering the same messages throughout

 

Although this sounds simple enough, the hard truth is that its actually alot harder then its sounds. For example when a marketer gets their message across through television there are jingles, slogans and visual which appeal to consumers making it easier to comprehend the marketers message. 


However if the marketers use radio as another channel then this could send mixed messages to consumers as they may create in their mind an image of what they hear on the radio which could be completely to the actual product. Same goes with newsprint, consumers will only see visual without sound which may bore the consumer and may get easily distracted again interfering with the marketers message. 

 

So to refresh your memory the about the article intergrated marketing is basically a tactic marketers use to interact with consumers using a variety of channels to get their message across.

I agree with your insight renay. I like how you explained what integrated marketing is and how helps in developing the image of the brand you provided good explanations and examples in your insight for this article.

Renay explains well here the way that integrated marketing is part of all aspects of the company and goes a long way in communicating to the customer what sort of brand they are and what they represent. Even the way by which they communicate adds to this reputation as Renay pointed out with door knockers and social media.

Direct Marketing More Relevant Than Ever | Understanding Intergration | Scoop.it
Burgeoning digital channels and new avenues of customer insight give marketers new opportunities to build affinity and sales through direct marketing.

Daryl Peterson's insight:

This articles states how important direct marketing is due to the growth of people online and the rapid rise in social media e,g, facebook, twitter which are popular sites for advertisers to advertise through the eyes of the consumer. By utilising the sites to blog about product, photos, up and coming promotions, sales and tweets which become trending topics increasing their brand recognition throughout the target market. Using these sites marketers gain feedback from real life consumers a lot quicker and easier to help modify products to meet and satisfy consumer needs and wants. Using conusmers feedback marketers from direct marketing, marketers use data to create relationships with consumers. Using integration effectively can be the difference between creating a strong brand image and brand loyalty with consumers and consumers switching brands overall.

Direct marketing and consumer engagement

This article brings up improtant points about how direct marketing has increased espically with new media and technology. There is always increased risk with personalised direct marketing through social media where you must make sure you keep to the theme and image of the company to not cause confusion. As long as you can keep to theme it can be a very powerful way to reach a large customer base. With more and more people purchasing smartphones and tablets over PCs Mobile apps are becoming an increasingly popular way to market directly. This article covers the strengths of direct marketing through such media very well

Jordan Reti Pereira's comment, September 26, 2013 9:49 PM
@Oscar. I agree with your insight when you say that if a consumer is interested in a product or service, they will pursue more information. This holds true especially when the business can portay messages that are relevant to consmures in order to catch their attention long enough to invoke and idea in their minds whether they want to continue the pursuit of information or move on with the rest of their day.
Ashleigh Nicol's comment, September 26, 2013 10:39 PM
New technology and digital channels has indeed opened up a lot of opportunities for marketing managers, however it is more important to directly market more than ever before. This is because it is growing increasingly difficult to gain the attention of consumers. Selective exposure has become a huge problem for marketers to overcome and direct marketing helps factor out this problem. This is because the direct marketing approach targets the consumer on a personal level and gets them involved in the advert. It provokes their opinion and can create negative or positive feelings, however both gaining the attention of the consumer.
