Communication verbal or written requires complete involvement. The more effort we put in, the more result it derives in getting the desired results. Whether it’s advertisement content, speech or letter, what you are trying to convey should be clear in all respects. The challenge is to make sure that both parties agree to the content.
There should not be any room for ambiguity as it can have a negative impact. To iron out ambiguities, you need to be extra careful while preparing the content. It’s the perfect blending of all the ingredients in its right proposition creates good communication. Having some good strategies in our communication can yield more results.
Strategy # 1 Make It More Refined
Redraft your speech or letter several times until you are sure that your audience understand it without much difficulty. The more redrafting effort, the more effective it becomes. Include everything possible in an efficient way. That means the reader should get it immediately without spending much time in understanding what you are trying to say.
Strategy # 2 A Minimalist Approach
Don’t overdo anything. You may have an urge to cover all aspects of the problem you are talking. But that distracts the reader too much. Just discuss one point at a time. Your subject should say everything about what you are discussing in a very concise manner. You need to be a wordsmith in choosing your words carefully to convey ideas effortlessly.
Perfection comes with right perception. It is the outcome of conscious effort to follow the right strategy in doing the job. If there is no clearly defined strategy, it’s going to be strenuous for the team. Commitment towards the job is a major factor that brings perfection. I don’t mean you have to be a perfectionist. The word Perfectionist has a negative tone and denotes people who are egoistic and are hard to please. By perfection, I mean exploiting the possibilities within our limitations. Do not bend over pressure. Do it right and the result will follow.
I think one should not expected everything smooth always. There are our own limitations and difficult circumstances that could make situation worse. But sticking to certain principles whether in life or in your job can change things. Yes that’s the way to attain perfection.
Frustrated over your bad communication skills? No worries. Improving communication skills is a matter of putting efforts and applying some learning techniques. Good communicators are not born that way. They emerge from what they learn and apply in their everyday communication. It is the art of convincing that requires conscious effort and mentoring all the way towards perfection. Perfecting your communication skills may take time but it’s not impossible. You may wonder how that sales man could sell you that product while you had no intention to buy it. That’s the power of convincing, the most important part of communication process.
Adding The First Ingredient: Effectiveness
Different forms of communication calls for different approaches. The effectiveness you derive from each of them depends on the techniques you are employing. It could be a letter, a speech or an advertisement, whatever be the mode of communication, adding effectiveness requires good preparation. If you have a substantial knowledge and understanding of what you are talking or writing you have the effectiveness. The enthusiasm about talking something you are an expert reveals that you can communicate better on the subject than anybody else. The only thing to make sure here is about your audience.
Second Ingredient: Respect Your Audience
Prepare the content for the level of audience, taking into consideration their educational background and expectations. To cite an example, you will not be elaborating on technicalities to a group of kids. Instead, you will resort to a more simple approach to describe things in a more picturesque way to grab their attention. Because kids are the most distracted audience, it’s good to have a better grip over their expectations. A story telling approach is the ideal way to grab their attention in that situation. But on the other hand, if you’re speaking to a bunch of adults who may know even better than you, give their knowledge due respect by asking them what they already know about the subject so that you can have a more subtle approach.
Learning From Advertisements
Why advertisements are the most efficient mode of communication? It’s nothing but the clever use of images by mixing them with the words to create an impression. Any advertisement will take lot of time to squeeze information to it in a very effective manner so that it can deliver the communication in a very short span of time. Copywriting thus assumes the highest position among the various forms of communication. Here we can understand how success of communication is largely dependent on our creativity.
