About this Event: Re-evaluating Marketing Efforts with a Communications Audit
Are you at a crossroads in your marketing efforts? Unsure if your efforts are delivering the kind of ROI you’d expected? Or simply, do you want to ensure your marketing plan is aligned with the needs and interests of your key customers? If yes, it may be time for a communications audit.
Learn more about the purpose of a communications audit, as well as how to conduct one to help your organization more effectively communicate with its key constituencies and strengthen your digital, internal, and outfacing marketing efforts. We’ll cover how to assess communications related to attracting key audiences and/or new customers; analyze competitive landscapes; research and develop audiences; identify strategies, tactics, and messaging tailored to personas; differentiate yourself in the marketplace; determine clear-cut communications goals and metrics for success, and develop a strategic path forward.
During this interactive session, participants will be asked to hone in on 1-2 problem areas. While being guided through a worksheet and related exercises, you will walk away with a mini-plan of action for your organization!
