The overall marketing goal explains the "bottom line" result that will define your IMC campaign's success.

Typically, this goal represents some type of metric that contributes to the bottom line of the brand. This could be sales growth, additional units sold, penetration of a new geographic market and attributable metrics, sales to a new customer, or some other major, quantifiable and easily measured target.

Your IMC campaign objectives must contribute to the overall goal. They need to be broad and result in strategies that are implemented across earned, owned and paid media components of your campaign. Please refer to the lesson to ensure that your campaign objectives are measurable and related to your target audience only. They should be a mix of quantifiable and qualitative goals. Typically, IMC campaigns have 2-4 overall objectives.

Your strategies should all align with your objectives. Many good strategies can be implemented across earned, owned and paid media components. Typically, you will have 5-7 strategies and they do not have to be measurable. Make sure they are NOT actionable. You do not want to define tactics at this point.

Finally, justify your choice of goals, objectives and strategies. Explain why you think your target audience will help you reach the overall goal. How do your objectives and strategies align and support each other? Why are they effective choices for your target audience?
