2 You Decide Graves Enterprises Floor Care Products Consumer and Commercial Product Divisions have been working aggressively to create an Integrated Marketing Communications Plan. The Integrated Marketing Communications Plan (IMC) “evaluates the strategic roles of a variety of communications disciplines for example, general advertising, direct response, sales promotion, and public relations- and combines these disciplines to provide clarity, consistency, and maximum impact through the seamless integration of messages.” (Kolter & Keller, 2009). However, even though the Marketing Director of Consumer Products Division, Joshua Edwards, has worked with his team to generate multiple ideas that he has presented as an IMC plan it needs to be reviewed with a critical analysis because it does appear to meet the definition. After reviewing the plan sent by Joshua and having the Financial Analyst, Abbey Buzwelda, report that the Consumer Product Division campaign will not break even until Year TWO which will not meet the profitability goals of the company. The second part of Abbey’s report addressed the fact that the Commercial and Consumer Products division could have economies of scale by working together in their marketing communications. Let’s look at what needs to be done first in order establish a strong Integrated Marketing Communications Plan for Graves Enterprises.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
