Marketing communication objectives
Everyone knows the importance of setting marcom objectives before implementing a marcom plan. That is the basics by the way. How can we know what to do if we don’t where we are heading and how much. A lot of Marketing amateurs make the mistake when they get so excited about the latter creative and fascinating marcom plan that they spend not enough time on the objectives. Do not ever simplify the process.
When setting the objectives, we do not only base on our brand’s problem, but should also put yourself in customers’ shoes. And this can be done by assessing the Hierarchy of Marcom effects (See figure below).

This often occurs to the first 3 stages: advancing consumers from unawareness to awareness, creating an expectation and encouraging consumers to try our brand.
Setting a Marcom Budget
Establishing a budget is the most important marcom decision because it determines whether an investment on a marketing communication plan is worth it. Like any investment, how much the budget should be spent depends on two criterias: risk and return. The plan should be realistic with most risks foreseeable and return achievable.
