Effective communication is the backbone of any successful marketing strategy. It helps to create a connection between you and your customers. Marketing communication involves using various tools and methods to promote products or services, establish relationships with customers, and build brand awareness.

We’re communications experts with over 10 years agency experience in the comms industry, delivering countless communications training courses along the way. We’ll help you master your written communication skills in the form of creative communications, tone of voice, brand positioning, and content strategy.

How our communication training is carried out

Our communication skills courses are made specific to you, lasting a full-day or longer if desired. We can work on a fairly flexible schedule but please give us enough notice, so we can plan out the bespoke training course to be the most in-depth and beneficial for our business.

Who is the training for?

This is for any marketing professionals who use written communication in their role or want to develop good communication within their internal teams, such as:

      • Social Media Managers
      • Social Customer Service
      • Copywriters
      • Marketing team
      • Paid Media Managers
      • Content Creators
      • Management/Leadership team

Why is communication essential in this era?

Research shows that 73% of consumers cite customer experience as an important factor in their purchasing decisions and 77% of consumers buy from brands that share the same values as they do – this is all done through good communication.

With no communication, there’s no image of your brand – which can lead to a loss in:

        • Brand growth (followers, engagement, reach)
        • Sales
        • Consumer trust
        • Journalist/Media relationships
        • Brand identity
        • Interpersonal skills
        • Community management

Every channel adopts a different tone of voice for its audience, so it’s important communication styles are different while also keeping consistent in brand messaging.

Our courses will prevent this, by giving you the skill and support required to:

  • Better communicate with your customers
  • Be more confident in your career
  • Give you and your colleagues the confidence to master comms
  • Techniques to adapt to different types of writing styles
  • Bring more writing styles and ideas to the table
  • The importance of effective communication
