Communications have been present since the origin of man; however, they have changed, evolved, harmonised and completed in time. If a company wants to succeed on the market and be ahead of others, it has to set up a good communications policy.
The marketing communications process helps us build a good trademark of a product or company. However, a trademark remains powerful only as long it maintains loyal users. Great knowledge and understanding of users is a basis for building loyalty and, consequently, building the strength of a trademark.
