Integrated Marketing Strategy & PR

Integrated Marketing is an approach to brand communications where you create a seamless experience for the member with a similar tone and style that reinforces your association’s core message/value proposition.

The goal is to make all aspects of marketing communication work together as a unified force, rather than permitting each to work in isolation. Many associations work in silos and are too departmentalized to implement an agile approach to marketing. Integrated marketing strategy delivers consistency and cost effectiveness.
