Business communication is a critical requirement that can be effectively managed online from within your WordPress site. If you have a WordPress Website or running an online store with WordPress Ecommerce, you can easily set up an internal communication system to talk to your team and collaborate with them online from your home.
As discussed, you can establish async communication with your customers simply by blogging your business and interacting with them from the comment section after every blog post on your website, this works for public interactions. Apart from this, you can also share private blog posts only visible to your team members to establish internal communication within your website.
Share Private Blog Posts For Internal Communication
This can be done by visiting the ‘Add New’ post screen from the admin panel of your WordPress site, switching to the ‘Document’ menu on the right side followed by clicking ‘Visibility’ under the ‘Status & Visibility’ section. Here you can either set the post to private i.e. visible only to site members or password protected.
Asynchronous communication is the best way of managing your team on the remote. As that doesn’t require both parties to be present online at the same time. A Private & Protected blog post is another example of this. By sharing private posts you can start private discussions between your team members, assign tasks to them, send updates, and make your people focus on given tasks.
Establish A Dedicated Online Communication System
This is another option that can be implemented either by starting a new WordPress site for internal communications or a subdomain-subdirectory based WordPress installation to work on side of your main website.
Once you are subscribed to Managed WordPress or have installed it manually on a subdomain of your website then simply log in to the admin panel to install-activate the P2 theme. Once the theme is activated, you can add new members on your website by visiting Users -> Add New page.
The theme is installed, users are added, now visit the front-end of your website for posting and interacting with your team members. You may visit Make WordPress Core to see how a P2 implemented remote working system looks like.
Live discussions over the P2 theme are dynamic enough to manage all small and big interactions with your team from within your WordPress site.
