  1. 1. Simple, clear, engaging, convincingcommunications will enable yourcompany achieve its true potential.
  2. 2. Presented by:Ed FieldFounder & Managing DirectorDiginoWhat do we do? • Develop business concepts, communications and marketing strategy. • Plan, design, build and manage websites. • Plan, implement and manage digital marketing activities.1890-927-800edfield@diginomarketing.comwww.diginomarketing.com 20th Oct 2011 Enterprise Ireland‘s eBusiness workshop, Dublin, Ireland
  3. 3. What kind of communication is that?• Tells your story. What’s unique, what’s brilliant about your company?• All for customer’s perspective. What they need, resonates with them, ‘what’s in it for me’ WIIFM, easy to understand• Truth.• Clarity & simplicity.• Presentation. In words, images, video, graphics• Brief. Need to catch your prospects attention in 6 seconds, and have all this communicated in 3 minutes.
  4. 4. Why is clear communication important?• More choice• More messages• Less time• Communications anytime, anyplace, anyone• How do you expect your customer to understand if you don’t?• And take what you have and localise for 12 different markets? STAND OUT -> ENGAGE -> CONVINCE
  5. 5. What are the benefits of clear communication?• Save money - Less resources needed to achieve a sale. Higher prospect to customer conversion rates. Can spend less on advertising – if you stand out people will talk about you. With a clear position there’s better chance of sale materials being right first time and changing less frequently.• Increase revenue - Competing less on price so increase margins. You have a more defined, defendable position.• Faster growth - You’re more focused, talking to the right prospects, easier & faster sales, more efficient .• Happier customers - This is my promise & I can deliver on it.• Happier team - More focus, more flow, more efficiency, happier customers. Achieve your true business potential.
  6. 6. Are you achieving your true potential?• We are brilliant at..........................• What need is this satisfying for your customer?• Do you easily strand out, easily engage, easily convince? For example when a prospect visits your website are they engaged in 6 seconds, convinced in 3 minutes?How do you rate your company communication?• 1 we’re shocking• 2 we’re fairly poor• 3 we’re ok• 4 we’re amazing
  7. 7. Not achieving your true potential - WHY NOT?Some possible reasons?• We didn’t think about communication like that• We didn’t realise that good communication was such an opportunity• We’re too immersed in the business to see what is brilliant about what we do• We weren’t really thinking about our customers• Our communications were flat, factual, definitely not ‘resonating’• We knew what was great but we just didn’t have the communication skills to articulate that
  8. 8. How do you solve this?1. Develop Understand - develop a deep, true understand of your company, customers and competitors.2. Find Clarity - see the opportunities, make the complex simple.3. Then Clearly Communicate - excellent communication skills to explain & persuade internally and externally.
  9. 9. Develop Understanding – possible steps Possible steps an external provider might go through to build up their understanding of your company, competitors, and customers so that they can help you see how best to clarify your core communications.• Company – workshop(s) with management, listen to people in the company, walk around, use the product, read everything about the company, immerse ourselves.• Customer – listen to the companies understanding, listen to the customer themselves (interviews, surveys), observe online discussion forums, examine search behaviour on Google.• Competitors – buy from them, visit them, review their websites and any other sales materials.• Leaders - find similar companies that are already excellent at communicating, learn from them.
  10. 10. Find Clarity1. Think, reflect, discuss, research further. Seek the truth of the situation See the opportunities Make the complex simple2. Write up the suggested approach3. Share it, challenge it, reflect on it4. Refine and firm up
  11. 11. Clearly CommunicateFrom this clarity all communications flow i.e. for marketing plan, brand, assets, website, advertising, brochures, right down to the words you use every day. The approach needs to be simple, focused and relatively fast . Tends to loose perspective and momentum if not moving quickly. The work need a strong leader as simple ideas, simple approach and change will be challenging.
  12. 12. Where’s The Proof • How just one webpage, clearly thought through from the customer perspective with simple, clear engaging content and a clear call to action can have a significant effect on sales.
