The company home market, Germany, is the target market of the study. The objective set by the company is to increase sales by 10000, which at the same time can be generalized as creating product category need and brand awareness.
In order to complete the study, the writer decided to present three main parts. The first one explains every aspect of integrated marketing communication (IMC) and IMC plan in terms of theory. The second part, as well as the main part, gives general analyses of the company, market and target audience.
