(For example, the elements of the promotion strategy include: advertising, personal selling, public relations, direct marketing, and sales promotion) and how you use them to communicate with your target segment.

2. Explain your rationale for choosing these specific elements.

3. Describe the message you wish to communicate based on your core strategy and explain your rationale for the message.

4. Develop a strategy to measure the effectiveness of the IMC. How has the internet played any role in how you developed your marketing approach?

5. State your core strategy (which includes the Value Proposition and Product Positioning).

It avoids the need to use unhygienic public restrooms and the inconvenience to wait outside such busy public restrooms.

I plan to market and distribute this product via a set of online as well as traditional methods of marketing as distribution.
