Integrated marketing communications is based on the concept of all aspects of the communication and marketing mix working together to project a consistent image in the minds of the target market. However, what may be acceptable in one culture could actually be offensive in another. What works well in one society may fail dismally in another. Simple issues like phrases, gestures, or colors can be problematic.
