Discussion:
Branding and integrated marketing campaigns
Integrated marketing: It means your company breathes your brand’s image.
Your website, billboards, business cards, slogan, logo, mission statement, newspaper ads, commercials and even your receptionist’s voice all say the same thing: We are X. We stand for Y. We give you Z.

Branding and integrated marketing campaign: Cited research based product description and purpose. Has to be either a product that evokes empathy and social justice and or is sustainable with

What makes an effective integrated marketing campaign?

1) Messages that grab customers by the eyeballs and the gut. Think about what your company stands for and what it really does for customers. Then find ways to connect with your audience in a meaningful way and spread your brand’s identity on every media.
2)Consistency and harmony. All of your marketing platforms and your company’s everyday spirit should always be communicating that single brand identity.

Empathy test: https://psychology-tools.com/test/empathy-quotient

Empathy is the ability to sense other people’s emotions, coupled with the ability to imagine what someone else might be thinking or feeling. Research suggests that empathic people tend to be more generous and concerned with others’ welfare, and they also tend to have happier relationships and greater personal well-being. Empathy can also improve leadership ability and facilitate effective communication.

Brand marketing

Building your own brand essentially boils down to 7 steps:

https://blog.hubspot.com/blog/tabid/6307/bid/32763/the-10-greatest-marketing-campaigns-of-all-time.aspx
https://www.google.com/amp/s/www.brandwatch.com/blog/top-10-marketing-campaigns-2017/amp/

If a brand campaign fails to achieve results, consider the following factors that could require specific attention:

Market Research Analysts gather data about a market segment, in order to guide how a company presents its products and/or services to customers.

What do they do?

Brand marketing is as much about product quality as it is about communication, with poor product quality affecting a customer’s perception of a brand far more than good quality can. This attention to quality must extend to every aspect of the company’s interaction with customers, including the company website and social-media activity. Internet marketing of a brand cannot be done as an afterthought, with little investment; any deficiency will reflect on the company’s reputation, and all its products and services.(See also Internet Marketing)

http://www.marketing-schools.org/types-of-marketing/brand-marketing.html

Types of internet marketing

The Internet is an interactive, multimedia space with a vast and growing population. This means that there are an increasing number of ways to reach potential customers. These include, but are not limited to:

An Internet marketing campaign doesn't have to be comprehensive. Not all campaigns need an email newsletter, a viral video, or a social networking component, but finding the right balance between these options typically leads to greater rates of success for marketing professionals.

For instance, a strong Internet marketing campaign for the release of a new album might consist of a website about the album, daily updates by the artist on social networking pages, and a music video released on popular video sites like YouTube.

The first step is to identify the audience for the product. Who is interested in this product? Who does the business want to interest in this product? Once the target audience is identified, the next step is to conduct research about how that particular demographic uses the Internet so the campaign can focus on the best method of reaching them.
