When your campaign is integrated you retrieve more data specific information about how your consumer is perceiving you across channels. This opens a window to better your brand's popularity and acceptance quotient.

Since it does precise consumer targeting and trumps a one-dimensional approach, businesses irrespective of their size can avail it.

According to Entrepreneur, you should allocate your resources in proportion to the ROI that different campaigns can deliver: "Having a clear idea of a campaign's costs, the number of sales generated, how large the sales were and who purchased the product or service can help you invest your marketing budget wisely."

Gives your Brand the correct placement

Unless you force attention, which is of course next to annoyance, making an effort to embark upon a campaign strategy that is memorable and vividly acceptable, your brand's messages will be lost in oblivion. Integrated marketing remarkably makes sure that the messages you are sending across channels remain consistent.

The thing is, people see more than they think they see and if you're everywhere someone looks when they're making their purchase decision you can bet that, sooner or later, you will be exactly what they end up looking for.
