The first component of content marketing mentioned by John Rampton is the audience, which is the most important factor because you need to know who your target base will be. Knowing and understand your audience will help you know their preferences which will create a better delivery when you run ads and promos. Things to know about your audience should include their financial class bracket, sex, age and marital status. The next step would be to define your “written content (e.g., a blog or social media post, a report, a press release, etc.), an image (e.g., a meme, infographic, etc.) or a video” (Rampton, 2016, para. 6). A social media blog would benefit IMC by way of creating more advertisement and public relations.

These are vital to IMC because a company needs to know what type of media to buy and establishing a relationship with the customers after they have purchased.
