market research:

The process of gathering, analyzing and interpreting information about a market, about a product or service to be offered for sale in that market, and about the past, present and potential customers for the product or service; research into the characteristics, spending habits, location and needs of your business’s target market, the industry as a whole, and the particular competitors you face.

Market Research Methods:

In conducting your market research, you will gather two types of data: primary and secondary. Primary research is information that comes directly from the source–that is, potential customers. You can compile this information yourself or hire someone else to gather it for you via surveys, focus groups and other methods. Secondary research involves gathering statistics, reports, studies and other data from organizations such as government agencies, trade associations and your local chamber of commerce.

logo:
I know we see literally hundreds of them all throughout the day, but what exactly is a logo? I’m betting most wouldn’t be able to answer this question, at least not in a simple manner. A logo is a fundamental part of any brand and any marketing plan, yet it is probably one of the most over-looked pieces of any business.

Let’s face it: we tend to take brand logos for granted. So, what exactly is a logo and what does it do?

At first glance, a logo helps us recognize a brand name and reminds of us of its existence, helping keep it top of mind. Without a logo, the product would certainly disappear. You can’t really be a brand without a logo. Imagine trying to find Tide on the laundry detergent shelf if there wasn’t a big orange Tide logo on all the packaging? Logo help us to know what it is.

Step 5: Implementation

The Implementation Process

The implementation process involves getting the work done. Much of what will be undertaken at this stage will depend on the nature of the selected response. However, there are some generic points that can be made about implementation. Probably the most important point is that implementation should start as soon after the planning has been completed as possible. There are several reasons for this:

In order to start a business is not easy, especially if you do not have the skills and expertise. It is a great challenge and a few who are engaged in this challenge and when Al-Bandari spoke about her experience, I know she was one of them. In order to do your project there are many steps and plans that should be followed as I mentioned earlier that the experience of completing the experience is very wonderful and I wish I am going to the next year I learned how to take advantage of opportunities and not afraid to face failure and how to market for myself and my project and how to go through experiences and it would not be wrong if especially wrong at first because The cost of the mistake at the beginning less and how to make the logo and how it chose and the impact of social networking sites in our time and how to market through these sites.

The entrepreneurship

The concept of Entrepreneurship is that a person starts his own project after choosing an appropriate idea that balances his passion and his ability to implement it and then studies the market to ascertain the demand for this idea and then he pays it either through his own money or from the participation of investors. The owner of the idea is one of the so-called entrepreneurs with certain qualities such as patience, patience and ability to take risks and determination to succeed and deal with obstacles and other qualities of a successful entrepreneur.

The concept of entrepreneurship implies that the entrepreneur offers a risk to start something that no one knows to succeed or fail because his or her idea is creative and new. It means leadership in business, but from within an institution, such as creating an employee in an existing institution, A new way of organizing work and production, or a new branch within the organization itself, or inventing a new idea in production. Entrepreneurship ranges from individual work to leisure, and the establishment of large and small enterprises that accommodate many workers. Some nascent enterprises need capital to establish the institution. For this purpose, many organizations have emerged in the world to fund creative ideas, many of them in Saudi Arabia, such as the Deleny Business Center, a social development bank program that provides support and development services to small and young enterprises free of charge.

team work and communication

I will ask do you recognize how much it meaningful to company also it make a vast difference in the effectiveness and success of the company?

First at all we will take about communicating When I asked to define communication, how would you respond? Most people will relate to the forms of communication – talking or listening. But communication goes beyond that. Communication involves getting information from once person to the other person. Yet even this is not a complete definition because communicating effectively involves having that information relayed while retaining the same in content and context. If I tell you one thing and you hear another, have I communicated? Communication is the art and process of creating and sharing ideas. Effective communication depends on the richness of those ideas.

 

The process of working collaboratively with a group of people to achieve a goal.Teamwork is often a crucial part of a business, as it is often necessary for colleagues to work well together, trying their best in any circumstance. Teamwork means that people will try to cooperate, using their individual skills and providing constructive feedback, despite any personal conflict between individuals.

Why Top Companies Need Communication Experts?

Years ago, communication experts were most necessary in broadcast journalism, public relations, performing arts, and similar industries. Today, however, these professionals occupy valuable roles within every type of business. In fact, a GMAT survey of 600 employers revealed that many companies look for communication skills first in new hires. While basic written and verbal communication skills matter for every employee, today’s top companies need communication experts in their respective corners.

 

I will give example is(Nestlé) top company 

Nestlé’s code of business conduct is built on the foundations of “Mutual respect, trust and transparency in relating to one another and encouraging open communication & cooperation”. In NME; a market of 13 countries, with over 70 different nationalities and 30 different languages spoken, we can proudly say we are a market that celebrates and prides its diversity! This means we can acquire a broad range of experiences and outlooks and learn from exceptionally unique people. We work across teams, territories and continents with a chance to acquire experiences through local, market, zone and global initiatives.(nestle.com)

Here is an article of why Nestle is a global company with employees work in from all over the world. Its main objectives are employees’ sense of belonging, communication and teamwork with different cultures and capabilities.

Internal Communication Matters Just as Much as External Communication:

Brand storytelling doesn’t just revolve around a company’s target consumers. Businesses must also communicate effectively with their staff, vendors, and associates. If employees do not understand the company’s mission, goals, and values, they can’t relay those important qualities to the public.

 

Why Top Companies Need Communication Experts?

 

Sean D. Williams, a communication expert who has worked with many Fortune 500 companies, advises business owners to “write stories that matter to your employees, balancing the need for leadership to transmit information with the need for employees to have relevant content. Do research to discover what those stories should be, and do it often.” Williams goes on to say that companies should look inward during periods of financial struggle. Instead of laying off workers and tightening belts, they should focus their efforts on motivating staff and creating a brighter future.

my opinion ..

A communication expert helps a company craft interesting and effective messages, both to the target market and to employees. Without such a professional on its side, a business risks communication failure that can turn off customers, irritate employees, and damage the company’s reputation.

The ability to communicate and teamwork is very important in developing companies’ business and even in normal life. As I spoke earlier about Nestlé and their strategies in making all employees who are from all over the world adapt and integrate with one another, because when the employee is comfortable with his work and feels good with I think that my definition of skills, especially the skill of communication and teamwork is not covered entirely because each skill is a sea of ​​definitions and meanings and things covered, but I try to limit them in words that reflect the These skills also recommended that companies focus when training its staff on these skills because of their big reason for its success.
