The integrated marketing communications manager continues to provide this service, but the other activities under his integrated management function influence the production of marketing material.With marketing communications integrated under one management function, all events go through the integrated communications function. It means that the company's profile and the image it projects at such events is consistent and in keeping with overall company goals.

Role of Integrated Marketing CommunicationPublic RelationsUnder integrated marketing communications management, companies no longer maintain a separate public relations operation whose activities may not support the efforts of marketing. The public relations function becomes part of the integrated strategy and supports the marketing function. Published information, even if not directly relevant to the marketing of the company's products, helps create an image of the company that supports the ability to market them. Companies and their products become more tightly identified in the minds of the public.MediaInstead of separate media relations, the integrated marketing communications concept groups this responsibility with all the other company communications. The integrated marketing communication operations review and manage the image of the company in the media. Marketing personnel release targeted information to support the image they want to see. When the company is in the news, they shape the information coming out of the company to support the company's overall goals and a positive media image.Role of Integrated Marketing CommunicationPublicityA company often has various people authorized to create press releases. Under the integrated concept, integrated marketing communications management handles all such publicity. Others may want to publicize some newsworthy items, but the press release itself goes through the integrated management function. The manager can decide how to structure the release of the news so that it has the desired effect, or he can decide that the release of a particular news item is not in the interests of the company.CustomersUnder integrated communications, the marketing function handles direct customer contact. This arrangement has a two-fold advantage. Marketing management can shape the responses to complaints to maximize customer satisfaction while protecting the company. Marketing management also becomes aware first hand of issues with the company's products. When marketing is placed on the front lines, the function becomes more responsive to customer concerns, and the influence of customers increases.

The process is as follows: Sender, Encoding, Transfer Mechanism, Feedback, Response and Decoding. The SENDER is typically the company that produces the product.ENCODING involves communicating the message in understandable terms for the consumer. In some companies, this person is identified as the Marketing Manager.TRANSFER MECHANISM is the medium that will be used to transfer the message.DECODING is how the customer interprets the message.RESPONSE is how the customer reacts to the message.

Advertising Management though is a complex process of employing various media to sell a product or service.This process begins quite early from the marketing research and encompasses the media campaigns that help sell the product.While advertising management is an inseparable part of the marketing department, the marketing department of an organization is often concerned more with market research and evaluation of results, and some parts of the advertising management can be outsourced to specialized advertising agencies.Hence, companies that believe in an effective advertising management process are always a step ahead in terms of selling their goods and services.Advertising management process in fact helps in defining the outline of the media campaign and in deciding which type of advertising would be used before the launch of the product.Definition and Scope of Advertising ManagementAdvertising has a wide scope in marketing and in the social system.
