In fact , Marketing and communication are closely linked in the context of business communication. Nevertheless, there are significant differences: Marketing is generally very sales-oriented, while communication has an indirect effect on business success. The keyword here is “public relations” or PR for short. Public relations work in a company aims to convey a specific image of it. It should be noted that on social networks, marketing and communication are increasingly merging with each other. A classic division of corporate communication is based on target groups:
Corporate communication as internal communication:
In other words, communication with employees .
Corporate communication as external communication:
This means communication with customers (customer approach), but also with suppliers, cooperation partners or the public.
As a founder, you need to formulate clear and realistic business goals. The following questions can guide you in the development of corporate communication:What are the key messages of my company that I want to convey in my corporate communication?
How would my company and I like to be perceived in public?
Who is my target group and how can I address them with my corporate communication? What media can I use?
How do I envision communicating with employees in the context of my corporate communications?
