Course description

Communications for Small Business Owners

UK/International - Open, Online and Onsite

Communication between individuals is a two-way street, but communication between a small business and its customers is a multi-lane highway. Navigate this highway successfully and you increase customer numbers and profits. Set out on this highway unaware, ill-prepared, or unconvinced of its importance, and you will lose ground to your competitors. This course will introduce and reinforce the essential components of written communication that will connect you with existing and potential customers. If you are new to the communications highway, this course will provide the foundation for future development. If your company has some communications expertise, this course will help you strengthen and polish your essential components.

Key Communication Components

To start the course, participants will learn what business communication is all about. They will also review their pre-assignment.

The Building Blocks

Your communications plan should be linked with your organization’s other key plans (such as marketing, expansion, and succession).

Elevator pitches and executive summaries will also be covered.

Next, participants will learn about the five C’s of a successful message: clear, concise, complete, correct, and compelling.

Communication Strategies

To wrap up the first day, participants will learn two strategies that can help them increase their communications success: goal setting and core messages.

Sharing Information Through Media Releases

Communicating Online

Next, participants will learn how to use blogs and social media to communicate their message.

Enhancing Your Results

Next, participants will learn how to boost their results with techniques such as search engine optimization, analytics, and SWOT analysis.
