How to Build Successful Investor Relations:

Keep Your Communication Open

It is not easy to impress possible investors to finance your company especially if you are new in the business. And it is even more difficult to keep them satisfied once they have decided to finance you. So, in order to ensure that targets and goals are transparent to everyone, you need to make sure that communication is constant and clear. From convincing potential investors until the ROI (Return on Investment) has been met. If your business is starting to expand internationally and becomes an MNC (Multinational Corporation/Company), it is significant to acquire a professional and qualified translator should there be a need for discussion in another language. This will help build better communication and trust among stakeholders, thus, resulting in a better business flow.

Be Transparent with the Good and the Bad News

Once proper communication has been established, everything related to the business should be transparent to the investors as well. This includes the good and the bad news. It is a moral and professional obligation on your part to make sure that the status of the business is clear. If there are marketing campaigns that have been done, do send them a link or a clip of the advertisement. If there are setbacks that caused financial losses, give them the information and reports. Make sure to include an accurate translation of these updates to your investors who are in another region or who are using a different language. Aside from providing your stakeholders with the right to know, it will also help you manage their expectations better. This will help you plan better for the company’s future.

Proper Documentation and Reports

It is essential in every business to keep track of the progress or regress of the company. In providing these reports, always ensure that business updates, financial records and annual reviews are correctly done.

Ask for Advice and Business Guidance

Your investors are not only a source of funds, remember that they can also be a source of advice and guidance for your company.
