A lack of communication can not only kill a marketing campaign, but it can kill the entire business.
Whether it is a failure to communicate among the staff, with clients, or vendors, it will cause your company to miss deadlines, make incorrect decisions, and ultimately, if the campaign survives, it could make the campaign go over budget or cause a disconnect and mistrust with the client. Therefore, excellent communication skills is a must.
As the business owner, you should make certain that your staff has the correct communication tools and resources. Doing so, will result in smoother campaigns, painless on-boarding processes, and less complaints and more praises for the hard work that you accomplish.
My favorite communication tool is the application, Slack.
The idea is that you have channels set up for different topics or projects.
When a new channel is set up, you simply invite the members to the channel.
Members can chat to each other, unless you prefer to hop on a video call, which you can also do using the Slack App. You can upload and share files with other members, including photographs, links, or video's. The Slack App also integrates nicely with a host of other applications, some that you're probably already using. So not only can you effectively collaborate with your team mates whether they are on site or not, but you can also streamline your workflow to further improve your processes and applications.
