Marketing Planning for ROMI (Return On Marketing Investment)
Facilitated by Ian Rheeder, CM (SA), Marketing Consultant and Facilitator, Markitects

Marketers need to understand the financial impact of their marketing plans. Whether you're in a down or upswing economy, return-on-marketing-investment (ROMI) is your ticket to being taken seriously in the boardroom. Take a new look at your integrated marketing communication (IMC) techniques and calculate through research, just how effective your campaign is - before, during and after. Both Business-to-Business (B2B) and FMCG approaches will be covered - so you will walk away with a broad understanding of the two classical promotional frameworks and their ROMI.
