BACKGROUND STUDY

In any commercial organization, as well as other sorts of groups, communication is a critical tool. It is an element that may help any company stay afloat. Communication also aids in comprehending the concepts and factors that cross an informed person's or group's mind (Haghshenas et al, 2013).

Communication may be defined as the process through which information is given and comprehended cooperatively by two or more individuals typically with the purpose to inspire or affect conduct (Hawkins et al, 2010). (Hawkins et al, 2010).

Communication may also be defined as the flow of information from the sender to the recipient while taking into account a mutual understanding.

According to Sannie (2006), communication is "the imparting, sharing, or exchanging of ideas, knowledge, skills, or other information, whether by voice, writing, or signs." He also described communication as the exchange of messages, instructions, and directions.

'The process of conveying and exchanging thoughts, sentiments, and information through realization, symbol, writing, and silence, to build mutual understanding between the communicator and the receiver,' Sannie (2006) added.

Communication may be defined as the process by which one individual or a group conveys and transmits knowledge to another in such a way that both parties understand each other completely. It may also be characterized as two or more active things exchanging data, ideas, views, feelings, or emotions (Hawkins et al, 2010). Communication may also be defined as any method of transferring or transmitting a notion from one person to another.

All business interactions require effective communication. Inter-firm communication is proven to have mostly beneficial impacts on the relationship across research and circumstances, since communication modulates numerous crucial relationship outcomes (Duncan and Moriarty, 1998). Communication has an impact on satisfaction (Cannon and Perreault, 1999; Mohr and Sohi, 1995), trust (Morgan and Hunt, 1994), and loyalty (Cannon and Perreault, 1999; Mohr and Sohi, 1995). (Scheer et al., 2009) Communication may also be used to create affective engagement to a corporate partnership through relational governance (Mohr et al., 1996). Suppliers' investments in long-term relationships are often regarded to pay off in the form of higher value for the customer, which enhances consumers' intentions to purchase from the same supplier in the future (Hutchinsonet al., 2011). In order to achieve customer retention goals (loyalty and future purchase intents), the provider must understand the customer's perception of value as the ultimate relationship outcome (Sirdeshmukh et al., 2002). Future purchases will only be made if the consumer believes the supplier's offering is the best in the market. Despite the current body of research on interfirm communication, little is known about the function of marketing communications in business relationships (Andersen, 2001), despite the fact that communication is a critical component of a value-based relationship strategy (Sharma et al., 2001). It is proposed that marketing communications have a mediating function in the transition of perceived value into loyalty in its different manifestations, ranging from attitudinal to behavioral factors (Gilliland and Johnston, 1997; Keller, 2009).

Given that communication is the lifeblood of every firm and is also an integral aspect of marketing management, it is critical that this instrument (marketing communication) be successfully led in order to meet marketing objectives.

The promotional techniques that favorably transmit information about the business and its goods to the target market are referred to as marketing communication (Kacaniova, 2013).

Marketing communication also refers to the promotional instruments that are utilized to communicate positively with the target market. After knowing and understanding the target market in the environment, it is vital to pick appropriate marketing tools for interacting with the target market in order to fulfill the organization's marketing objectives (Mihart, 2012).

The totality of the numerous communicational instruments used in conveying an organization's image and goods with the target market is characterized as integrated marketing communication. It is the sum of all promotional techniques utilized to successfully communicate with the target audience.

Integrated marketing communication, according to Belch and Belch (2004), entails synchronizing multiple promotional aspects and other marketing operations that rely on media advertising. As a result, it adds value to a comprehensive plan by assessing the strategic roles of various communication disciplines.

1.2     STATEMENT OF THE PROBLEM

The main focus of shareholders and management in a typical company organization is how to maximize returns on investment and profit. A corporation must gain desired customer patronage of its goods and services in order to be profitable. This ideal patronage is defined as the capacity to increase a company's sales to the point where revenue exceeds costs by a significant margin (Haghshenas et al, 2013).

It will not be simple to do this since the firm faces several problems, including competition, a lack of suitable finance, the consumer's income, perception, and disposition, the quality of goods and services, and the lack of basic business facilities, to name a few (Kacaniova, 2013).

However, in the face of these obstacles, a company's capacity to grow past these obstacles and enhance profitability is largely dependent on its marketing operations. This is because marketing has the ability to establish a positive relationship with the customer, understand what he wants and how he wants it, inform and educate him about the company's goods and services and how they can benefit him, and deliver the product to him at the location, time, and price he desires (Mihart, 2012).

However, if a marketing campaign is to be effective and fulfill these goals, it must be carefully packaged. It is not sufficient for a corporation to sit in one spot and bundle marketing programs in the hopes of achieving these goals. Among the many things a marketing programmes has to be effective is communication (Hawkins et al, 2010). (Hawkins et al, 2010).

The corporation can effectively relate to the consumer, comprehend, educate, and enlighten him through excellent communication. The consumer will also relate to, understand, and believe the firm if it communicates well. If a marketing campaign is not correctly conveyed for whatever reason, the result will be a customer misunderstanding or ignorance of the company's marketing objectives (Mihart, 2012).

The waste of money and failure of the marketing activity will result from packaging a marketing campaign without effective communication. It will also provide competitors an edge over the firm, resulting in lower profits and returns.
