Communicating Brexit with Clarity will Build Trust Among Citizens

The challenges posed by Brexit (deal or no-deal) should not interfere with the clarity and conciseness of your communications. Your public/s need to understand:

  • The impact of service changes
  • What they need to do
  • How they can find out all relevant information
  • User-friendly steps to take online (or offline) to be Brexit compliant

Fellow Marketer,

The implications of Brexit may fill you with dread, but if we have learned anything from this political exercise, it’s that the execution of a communications plan will sink you or save you.

Consider this: Only 10% of businesses have prepared for Brexit in Ireland. The public sector may be more prepared and you may feel there is only so much planning you can do until the full Brexit story unfolds.

However, you must consider how the public should be engaged by your department or organisation as a direct result of Brexit.  Are you targeting all Irish citizens, are they home or abroad, what about niche groupings and those in business?

There will be hearsay, rumour and let’s face it, fake news spinning across the world wide web, so it’s vital that you communicate with the OOP model in mind – online content that is optimised and promoted.

Bad actors that understand the Internet are rising to the top unfortunately so there is a responsibility on you to publish and promote the truth. #TruthMatters

People are Googling the Impact of Brexit on their personal, working and business lives.

Every day there are thousands of Brexit-related Google searches in Ireland.

There are also hundreds of Brexit-themed social media accounts.

You are the authors of your own truth but it must be indexed on search engines to respond to the public’s insatiable appetite for information.
