What is a communication strategy?

Whether for internal or external communication, it’s essential to analyze the current ecosystem and the corporate culture. This allows you to develop a distinctive and sustainable position in the market.

Next, you will need to align your communication objectives to the organization’s overall business objectives and identify the audiences targeted by the campaigns.

Targeting the right message to the best internal or external clients increases the effectiveness and ROI of your communication actions. A sound communication strategy aligns core messages to the needs and expectations of your target markets and uses the best communication channels to get there.

Why define your communication strategy

The reasons for an external strategy :

  • To effectively position your company against the competition ;
  • To communicate the added value of the company ;
  • To build your notoriety ;
  • To increase your visibility ;
  • To promote a product or a service (new or established) ;
  • To increase the company’s sales ;
  • To open a new market (target clientele or geographic market) ;
  • Etc.

The reasons for an internal strategy :

  • Improve teamwork ;
  • Break down internal communication silos ;
  • Build a corporate culture aligned with your values ;
  • Attract potential candidates to fill vacant positions ;
  • Mobilize team members in a project that requires a high level of change (ex.: integration of a new CRM or ERP software) ;
  • Create a sense of belonging to the organization ;
  • Etc.

There are as many reasons to implement a communication strategy as there are types of businesses. However, to create an effective communication strategy, it’s essential to create a direct link between your communication objectives and your organization’s priorities.
