Masterclass at Stuttgart Media University finished the e-Book with the topic: „Will the invisible hand become visible?“

Students of the seminar „Integrated Marketing Communication“ researched eight marketing approaches:

  • Promotion (Market Communication)
  • Crossmedia Marketing
  • Corporate Communication and Stakeholder Dialogue
  • Customer Relationship Marketing
  • Social Media
  • Crowdsourcing
  • Social Local Mobile Communication
  • Mobile Marketing

Based on these results, the students developed a matrix which makes the invisible hand visible.

The e-Book shows the results of this research. It is a first new step with a new approach in method and must be further researched to find a valid method, how professional communication is used in future within marketing.

Customer Relationship Management


“One face to the customer, one face of the customer” is a guideline, which takes us to our understanding of Customer Relationship Management. The last decade witnessed a major shift through the emergence of the social web in the behavior from companies to customers and vice versa. Not only as a matter of IT-processes and calculation, CRM should now be understood as a mutual “trust-driver”. This is pointed out in Robert Morgan’s and Shelby Hunt’s Trust-Commitment-Theory of Relationship Marketing: “The efficiency, adjustment, and even survival of any social group depends upon the presence or absence of such trust.” (Morgan/Hunt, 1994) Especially as we are facing the so called Social Media Revolution, companies have to focus on the new possibilities of how to improve their customer relationship. Besides the matters of trust and commitment, the main strategic, analytical and operative factors of CRM are still valid, of course.

From one-way road to dialogue exchange – communication tools of today’s companies


The policies of communication have been becoming crucially important for organisations. According to experts the main reason for this statement is the rise in stakeholder expectations. Therefore, integrated and interlinked business communications are necessary (cf. Busch, 2007, p. 1).
However, what does communication mean? Communication can be described as the process of transferring information through a message from one entity to another.

In terms of the Corporate Identity Concept, communication includes all communication activities, which intend to transfer the self-perception of a company to an external image. For example, market communication is one form of communication. Thereby the company promotes mainly its products to the external audience. The main goal is to provide information about the company and its products, causing purchasing decisions in the mind of the potential buyers.
