Communications to grow your business
You have your business running – employees, customers, a business plan and the company is doing well.
What is the next logical step?
It is more than likely you will want to take your business to the next level and grow it even more.
PR and social media can be very beneficial tools to assist with growth. A communications strategy should run parallel with the business plan; it should assist by pinpointing exactly what the company wants to achieve over the short, medium and long term, and identify what markets should be reached out to. It should prioritise flagship products you want to be associated with your brand. But sometimes it’s not that easy to know what steps to take first, and which products and services will help you make a splash. Sometimes it’s also about being seen by competitors and stakeholders in highly complex environments.
An experienced communications professional can help a business’s senior team to define its public-facing proposition clearly, whether that is to expand doing what it’s already do well. Or getting ready to make traction in new markets.
Of course, PR and social media is not the miracle cure to make a business succeed, or turn around a failing one.
It goes hand-in-hand with the business model, marketing strategy, the quality of the product or service, and market demand.
If you are looking to hire communications support for your organisation, you first need to ask yourself the following:
• Do I want to grow the business?
• Do I have a robust business plan that tells me where we want to go – and our final destination?
• Am I, and the organisation, open to absorbing comments and expert advice from a communications professional?
• Am I happy to see our products and services critiqued in the press in order to gain growth/recognition?
If your answer is yes to all of the above – communications support is probably the next step.
