Communicate the Value: Integrated Marketing Communications Brief
Select a brand that has a brand problem. For example, recent player legal troubles have been a problem for the NFL brand. Another example is the Bonefish Grill, the country's second largest seafood chain after Red Lobster. Although their check average is more than $3.00 less than Red Lobster, many consumers see that brand as "expensive".
And develop an IMC brief. This deliverable will be used to instruct an external company that will be hired to develop an integrated marketing communications (IMC) campaign for your company. The deliverable will be presented in four to five page paper and will follow APA formatting guidelines including a cover page and reference page (Those two pages are included in the page count. Therefore, only two to three pages of actual content is needed).
The brief should be a concise word document that answers each of these questions. Make sure to answer each question as the information is critical to help guide the creative team that will formulate the IMC campaign.

How would we like the target to perceive us?
• What is the most persuasive idea we want to convey?

• What timeframe are we looking at for development and delivery?
Where will the message be delivered?
