Assignment;Social Media Integration into Advertising Strategy;Overview;You and your team will be working this week on crafting marketing and advertising strategies to capture market share for the five market segments as seen below.;The Cost Cutter segment is a large segment that looks for a very easy-to-use computer for very basic office applications. The segment is very price sensitive.;The Workhorse segment is the largest group of customers. They want a PC for a variety of office workers to use. It should have substantial capability and flexibility, although not top of the line. Ease of use is more important than high performance. It should also be modestly priced.;The Innovator segment is a small segment that uses a computer for large computational problems (engineering, accounting, inventory management). The segment wants the latest technology and will pay a small premium for this high performance.;The Mercedes segment is looking for a high-performance computer to use in sophisticated engineering and manufacturing applications. Mercedes customers are willing to pay substantially more for high performance. At the start of the exercise, Mercedes customers are not in the market for PCs. They prefer mainframes and minicomputers. It is not likely that Mercedes customers will be willing to buy until sometime in the second year when new computer technology is introduced.;The Traveler segment wants a practical computer to use on the road. Traveler customers are executives and salespeople who travel a great deal. This segment is moderately price sensitive.;Cadotte and Bruce (2003) state ?Your overall marketing strategy should include an integrated marketing communication (IMC) strategy. That is, all forms of communication with your target audience should be designed to have a common message and support each other? (pg. 163). To achieve penetration to your target markets, you must keep consistency but also differentiate your advertisement campaigns to accommodate for individual market segments. ?Advertisers use multiple outlets to ensure you place advertisements in media that that their ad campaign is seen? (Cadotte & Bruce, 2003, p.165). Social media is a relative newcomer to the marketing and advertising toolbox and must be integrated carefully into the overall strategy and more importantly into the strategy for each target audience.;Requirements;In a 4-6 page APA formatted paper excluding title page, reference page, abstracts, diagrams, and other visual/oral aids as appropriate, you will;Report on the leading edge trends in integrating social media into traditional marketing and advertising campaigns.;Create specific recommendations for incorporating social media into the market segments your company is targeting.;Include a detailed discussion of how these recommendations fulfill the balance of integrated and differentiated requirements as recommended by Cadotte and;Bruce (2003).;By Tuesday night:Submit your analysis (individual paper) to the Dropbox;2;Sunday through Tuesday;Share your Individual Assignment results with your team.;Finalize your marketing and advertisement plans as a team.;Reference;Cadotte, Ernest R. and Harry J.
