    This unit presents the framework for the development of advertising and more broadly, marketing communication strategies. Study commences with a focus on gathering information on the situation facing the organisation or brand. Based on the analysis of the situation, goal and objective setting are explored and stakeholder segments are analysed. Consideration is given to consumer information processing, message design and creative execution, budgets and media integration and selection for the implementation of the strategy. Evaluation strategies are explored to determine the success of the strategy. The unit will also consider how advertising campaigns may be integrated with other marketing communication strategies in the organisation.

    Cases are used to illustrate the application of the principles of advertising strategy to professional practice. Students will be required to develop a full strategy from the situation analysis to evaluation.
