What makes for a successful communications strategy?
A successful communication strategy builds a brand’s image, taking into account a company’s business objectives, mission and vision. A well-crafted communications strategy positions the company with strong, clear messages for a wide variety of stakeholders.If you are looking into expanding your business into a new market, it is important to have a clear communications plan that complements your business objectives and overall business plan. There is a need to customise a company’s communication strategy based on the target market and audience – potential clients, partners, employees and investors.
Why is a communications strategy important?
A well-crafted communications strategy should be recognised as an essential component of a company’s strategic plan, regardless of size, industry or reach. It can convey clearly the desired message a company wants to deliver to current and potential stakeholders. A company with a strong communication strategy engages everyone in its organisation and ensures alignment across the company. A strong communication strategy also means a company uses time and resources more effectively and generates more revenue in the long run.
A communications strategy maps out the various opportunities to have direct and indirect interaction with current and potential clients and other stakeholders. This means a clear, defined message is articulated across all channels, be it broadcast, print, digital, social media or website. A communications strategy is a dynamic tool to push forward a company’s business objectives. It should be reviewed and re-aligned with today’s competitive landscape and business needs.
A communication plan should take into consideration crisis management. In the unfortunate event of a crisis, the readiness of a company to respond promptly can often make or break the company. With a crisis communication plan as part of the communications strategy, your company will be prepared and ready to respond to any crisis quickly. It is integral to map out possible scenarios and have a set of pre-defined channels of communications, internal and external.
