Integrated Branding Turns 25Few modern marketing strategies have been more effective than integrated branding. Integrated branding (or integrated marketing communications) was first introduced to the world in 1989 by the American Association of Advertising Agencies, and it has become the go-to strategy for businesses of all sizes.

What is Integrated Branding

Integrated branding is a way of reinforcing a company’s brand image through multiple means, including advertising, sales promotion, traditional and contemporary marketing, and public relations. At each opportunity, a business that pursues an integrated branding strategy delivers a highly consistent brand message to its audience. Ideally, the marketing message is customer-focused and remains consistent, regardless of the channel being used.

Employing an integrated branding strategy requires businesses to think carefully about how, where and when they interact with their customers and potential customers. Advertising, a variety of marketing tools (including direct marketing, social media marketing, search engine marketing, mobile marketing, email marketing and content-based marketing), sales and support, promotional marketing and advertising, public relations, corporate philanthropy and other activities can all combine to deliver succinct, consistent messages about the business, its products and services, and its strategic benefits to its customers.
