Whenever you try to communicate with people, you want them to understand and respond favorably to what you have been saying.
So, understanding who your target audience is will actually help you in planning the way you would want to promote your brand and adapt to the level of understanding and listening background of the audience.
With the development of technology, we have also evolved and changed a lot in the ways by which we communicate with people.
Theodore Roosevelt pointed out that
“The most important single ingredient in the formula of success is knowing how to get along with people.”
Basically, communication can be categorized as online communication and offline communication.
#1. Online Communication:
All thanks to email and social networking, businesses are now capable of selling their products and services around the world with a few clicks of the mouse.
Online communication can be further categorized by means in which you market and sell your product in order to promote your brand. It includes communicating via email, Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, and much more to go.
Email is widely used as an effective communication tool for any form of business.
It cannot replace face-to-face communication but it serves well as an easy and efficient way of communicating with your audience over a few clicks as well as saves the company’s money.
Facebook groups and Facebook page are better known as a valuable collaborative tool for enhancing communication and sharing information, details and images with the people you would want to communicate through a message-board-like environment.
Facebook groups and pages even offer options by which you can keep your privacy statement as per your demand.
Facebook messages can also be utilized to send quick communications to the people you wish to connect with.
In the world of social media, Twitter falls into the category of microblogging tools due to the short and disconnected messages that it distributes.
Twitter can be used to present your brand by creating an account or user profile to tell your business story to the Twitter community.
There are various other features that Twitter has to offer to make communicating easier and flexible.
#2. Offline Communication:
Online communication or you can say the Internet may be the number one way of communicating with your audience but, it’s not the only way.
It has been a well-known fact that the Internet wasn’t always as ubiquitous as it is now.
Though digital communications render an effective and efficient way of communicating with your audience but it doesn’t mean that face-to-face and in-person interactions are of any less value.
Making the first point of contact in person and then further extending the relation via digital communication has always been a winning strategy.
