    What is marketing for mining companies

    Marketing for mining companies is about positioning the mining brand in front of their consumers. But these days it's not just about the consumer – it's about their investors, employees, stakeholders and local communities. We define this marketing for mines in a broader sense of mining communications, with selected target messages and audiences.

    How do I make a mining marketing communications plan?

    Firstly define your objections (WHAT) and target audience (WHO). Ask yourself in what timeframe do you want to achieve it (WHEN)? Finally, work out what channels you'll use and what solutions you'll be applying (HOW). You can now write out your marketing communications plan and strategy based on the framework of WHO, HOW, WHAT and WHEN.

    What is internal communications in mining?

    It's where you communicate to a mine's employees and internal contractors.  You'll plan the key messaging you need people to know, then create that content and share it through the communication channels. For example you can share your internal messaging through emailers, posters, chat messaging, intranet and Toolbox Talks.

    What is external communications in mining?

    External communications in mining is when you engage with the mine's key stakeholders and people outside the mine. This could be investors, the executive board, the local community and the general public. Examples of external communication channels for mining include your website, social media, advertising, publications and Public Relations (PR).

    What is a mining communication campaign?

    A mining communication campaign is where you identify a key message that you'd like to educate your staff about. Thereafter you create the content around the audience and channels. For example, if you are doing a safety campaign, you'd choose your SHEQ message, then write your content and create your design. This would then be applied to channels such as Screens, Leaflets, Posters, Emailers, WhatsApp/Messaging, surveys and other communication channels. After your campaign you need to find out how it was received so you can test and measure it's success.

    What makes a strong mining brand?

    There are many elements that go into a mining brand, but keeping it consistent across all your communication channels is key. You can achieve this through a well designed brand guidelines and an experienced marketing and communications team.
