The seminar “New Media Marketing: Case Studies” aims to provide you with insights into current business problems related to new media marketing. You will address these problems by analyzing a case of Plan.Net, which is part of the Serviceplan Group - the largest and most diversified owner- and partner-managed agency group in Europe. In the seminar, students will give strategic media planning recommendations for the brand Durex. In detail, this includes a re-briefing, showing that you understood your task, the description of key challenges for Durex in a media context and in general as well as a market and competitor analysis. Based on your results, you will develop target group descriptions and specific campaign goals including a reasonable argumentation and concrete measures. At the end of the term, students will present their results in front of a committee consisting of Plan.Net managers in Munich.
