Examples; 10 of the 827 standard requirements:

  1. You need to ask yourself two questions and organize contingency plans around them: what if? Next, think through how you would handle a crisis organizationally. to whom do you go to get the facts?

  2. Identification of the particulars of the monitoring, evaluation, and control efforts that will be employed to appraise the effectiveness of all imc program elements used. what is to be tested?

  3. It is difficult to know if youve got the right spending level. however, the agency should provide a range of budgets for the products they advertise. how much does the top advertiser spend?

  4. Spheres of influerce in the consumers life. what people, activities, organizations and media can have the most effect on determining the target audiences receptivity to products?

  5. Some measurement of efficiency is better than no measurement of it. if you dont know the cpm how can you justify the expense of using one medium or vehicle versus another?

  6. Another consideration in developing an imc program is the nature of your product or service. is it over-the-counter (condoms) or ethical (oral contraceptives/ocs)?

  7. What are the objectives of your campaign as they relate to brand awareness, knowledge and interest, favorable attitudes and image, and purchase intentions?

  8. Generating increased purchases or use is also a typical category for consumer promotion objectives in sustaining programs. when do you want to do this?

  9. There are a variety of product related problems that can turn into crises. what if product tampering occurs and consumers buying products are harmed?

  10. Strategic communications focuses on strategy not tactics. How specifically does your company or business communicate effectively with the audiences?

    Seems quite handy - going to start using it next month as we're investing quite a lot in it. This will define for us what to do in this space and solve a real problem (rather than chasing shiny objects).

    This is a structured, in-depth review and how to work out how develop the controls and processes that will begin to solve the problem. Knowing what questions to ask is the starting point. The level of questions and analysis required will surprise, but this level of details is essential.
