Communications Plan design, Implementation and Monitoring

There are three kinds of companies.

‘Those that make things happen.

Those that watch things happen.

Those that wonder what happened…”

— Marketing Management by Philip Kotler

By definition a marketing/communications plan is a written document that spells out the goals, strategies and tactics to gain and/or maintain a competitive position, as well as the results sought. A good marketing plan is really a living document (and should be treated as such) that defines the action any business needs to take in order to achieve certain goals. A good plan should align with the company’s goals and define how one will reach the target audience.

Having an effective Communication plan will make it possible to target communication accurately. It provides clients with a structure to determine whom they need to reach and how. A plan can be long-term, helping one map out how to raise his/her profile and refine their image in the community over time. A plan will make communication efforts more efficient, effective, and lasting. Moreover, a plan makes everything easier. If KIC is given the opportunity to spend some time planning at the beginning of an effort, the client can save a great deal of time later on since the clients would know exactly what they should be doing at any point in the process. KIC’s typical communication philosophy is based on the following line of thought:
