Internal communications: the key to a successful campaign
Allocate budget to pay for associated costs and ensure that internal communications is part of someone with relevant skills and experience to manage the internal communications’ role.
2. Build shared responsibility
Create an environment where everyone helps facilitate the flow of information and resources.
3. Have a primary contact point
To help resolve issues quickly consider appointing a contact person who has oversight of the whole campaign and is available to answer any member queries.
4. Use multiple channels
Think about your audience, what you need to communicate and then pick the best channel.
5. Be accessible
Have an easy-to-access online platform where all core campaign materials and resources are stored. Tools like Basecamp and Google Plus allow you to create different groups and projects to control content access.
Monitor and measure your internal communications in the same way as you would your external communications.
7. Be relevant, timely and interesting
Communication plans rely on an engaged audience. Being relevant, timely and interesting can help. Remind people about the shared vision you’re working towards and celebrate any progress that is made on the way.
