Communications for Small Business Owners
Communication between individuals is a two-way street, but communication between 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.
This two-day workshop will teach participants how to:
- Define the essential pieces of communication
- Customize these essential pieces
- Identify the processes and plans needed for clear communications
- Develop, maintain, and evolve effective content for their communications
You will spend the first part of the day getting to know participants and discussing what will take place during the workshop. Students will also have an opportunity to identify their personal learning objectives.
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). In turn, these plans should be based on your company’s mission, vision, and values. This session will explore all of these elements as they relate to the communication plan. Elevator pitches and executive summaries will also be covered.
Your Communications Plan
In this session, participants will learn about the three steps for building a communications plan: selecting the destination, choosing a route, and establishing a vehicle. Setting up an approval process and inbound vs. outbound marketing will also be covered.

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

Communicating with our customers is very important. Without clear communication, we were finding that we were creating roadblocks that would cost us money, time and ultimately a relationship with our customers. This course helped me identify the processes and plans needed for clear communications in my business.
