The concept of IMC represents a paradigm shift from mass marketing to consumer orientation. The goal is to achieve a coordinated approach in combining the instruments of the promotional mix and developing a marketing communication strategy. Effectively achieving a defined goal means that all forms of marketing communication deliver a consistent m...essage. Integrated marketing communications create consumer awareness of the brand, encourage positive reactions to the brand, contribute to the establishment, development, and maintenance of long-term relationships of the organization with consumers. Their role is to create a positive image and a good brand position by integrating all marketing instruments.
