Tips for Developing a Successful Integrated Marketing Plan

Successful businesses have an integrated marketing strategy. Just think of the reasons why you buy a specific product or service. Most likely some sort of marketing was involved, like a Facebook ad or a commercial on television. No matter if you connect planners with meeting facilities or sell clothing, an integrated marketing plan is a must for any business, especially in the hospitality industry.

An integrated marketing plan consists of blending online and offline marketing strategies implemented in the most cost-effective manner and providing the greatest return on investment (ROI). These strategies could include social media ads, email campaigns, print and/or digital brochures, direct mail, and more. Blending these online and offline strategies is important to reach as many people in your target audience as possible. 

Of course, when developing an integrated marketing plan, cost is going to be a factor. Not only will you want to choose the best marketing strategies to reach your intended audience, but also strategies that are cost-effective. A good ROI is about 20 times what you invested in the marketing strategies.
