9780071416627: IMC, the Next Generation Five Steps for Delivering Value and Measuring Returns Using Marketing Communication

Strategies for binding customers to an organization--by determining the information they want and giving it to them

In 1993, Don Schultz showed marketers how to coordinate their organizations' entire communications programs with the seminalIntegrated Marketing Communications. InIMC--The Next Generation, Schultz offers a refined and updated approach to the IMC model, one that goes beyond the messages an organization chooses to send to encompass the information that the customer wishes to receive or have access to.

IMC--The Next Generation shows marketers how to build sustainable competitive advantage and ROI by combining and coordinating all methods through which buyers and sellers come together. Numerous cases and real-world examples reveal how to use today’s IMC model to:

  • Integrate internal and external communications programs
  • Influence customers at every contact point
  • Build long-term brand relationships

In IMC--The Next Generation, Schultz teams with Heidi Schultz to offer updated insights on today's newly powerful business and communication model using the IMC approach.

Praise for IMC--The Next Generation

"Having pioneered the concept of integrated marketing communications (IMC), Don and Heidi Schultz now show all of the strategic and tactical steps that will make the 'new marketing' work for you. I will gladly recommend this book to CMOs and CEOs who want to win using a combination of strong brand building and direct-to-customer marketing."
--Philip Kotler, Professor of International Marketing, Kellogg School of Management, Northwestern University, and author of Marketing Management

"Don and Heidi Schultz have placed IMC where it belongs--at the center of the organization as a core business strategy to drive long-term shareholder value. The book is fundamental in scope, detailed in its analysis, and far-reaching in its implications."
--Shekar Swamy, President, R K SWAMY/BBDO Advertising Ltd.

"A marketing book that every senior executive has to read. Don and Heidi have the ability to communicate IMC principles with compelling simplicity, using practical examples to support well-thought theories."
--John Wallis, Senior Vice President Marketing, Hyatt International Corporation

"In this new centerpiece for IMC, Don and Heidi present a comprehensive and actionable road map to build, manage, and measure integrated marketing communication programs and link them to what really matters in business: value creation."
--Javier Trevino, Vice President for Corporate Communications, CEMEX

"Unlike any other business model--including the highly touted customer relationship management approach--IMC uniquely integrates all the pieces of an organization around a single factor: the wants and needs of customers. Satisfying those wants and needs leads to the core business objective of creating value for shareholders. And that is the objective of this book: helping practitioners move from seeing IMC simply as a means of coordinating communication to viewing it as a core business strategy that is based on measurable communication inputs and outputs."

--From Chapter 1

With today's increased emphasis on technology, branding, and globalization, communication is more than just a tactical corporate activity--it becomes a key element in ongoing success. Results-driven communication now allows you to treat each of your customers as individuals with distinct wants and needs, then answer those needs as you build both sustainable competitive advantage and measurable return on your marketing investments.

IMC--The Next Generation outlines a step-by-step process for combining and coordinating every method through which your organization communicates with customers. Built around the strategic ideas and insights that author Don Schultz used to help launch the IMC revolution, this hands-on book combines research-based insights with real-world examples to explore how businesses can leverage the IMC model to:

  • Seamlessly integrate all internal and external communications programs
  • Communicate positive messages to customers at every contact point, for every reason
  • Implement value-based business approaches that generate cash flows and shareholder value

Since its introduction over a decade ago, integrated marketing communication has progressed from a communication-only approach to a full-fledged business strategy, one that combines and focuses all of the organization's functions and activities around its customers. IMC--The Next Generation reveals how IMC can be implemented in organizations of virtually any size, in any economic climate, and in any geographic area to determine how much to invest in marketing communication, how to increase the returns on those investments, and how to deliver measurable and identifiable outcomes--to position and prepare your organization for success in today's evolving, undefined, and virtually limitless business landscape.
