#EurekaMoment 15: How to achieve maximum impact in your communications

With digital channels, it is now possible to measure the impact of your communications in quantifiable terms. The impact of course means whether your target audience has read your content, whether they have passed it on to someone else, whether they have acted on the information by issuing a reaction whether positive or negative.

Also, you are now able to know more about your target audience to not only enlarge it, but also finetuning your outreach by communicating at specific times, on specific days or occasions. You understand their demographics better, and you are able to reach out to them through the other subject matters they are interested in.

 

Communications impact is fundamentally based on Audience Resonance

But before you can do all of that, you have to go back to the basics of communications, traditional or digital, by asking the fundamental question: Does my content resonate with the people I want to reach out to?

 

Communications is about continuous testing and deployment
