DIMENSION 2018: Combination theory - unlocking the power

Consumers don’t differentiate how a brand delivers its message – it may be through paid for advertising, media forms that the brand itself owns (like a website, or packaging), or through communications that the brand has earned by proactive PR, strong media relations and newsworthy or planned activities. Each channel – (paid, owned and earned) – add to the consumer’s perception of the brand.

This section of our groundbreaking DIMENSION report, "Combination theory: Unlocking the power", explores how brand owners are turning to non-advertising channels to communicate with consumers and the impact that this is having. We take an in-depth look at the benefits and challenges that come with using combinations of communication techniques to deliver the most effective campaigns and to build and sustain brand loyalty.
