Pressroom: A New Way to Leverage Your PR Efforts.....

A fundamental shift has occurred in the way we use, consume and share media. So much so that a colleague of mine, Ross Dawson, has actually created the Newspaper Extinction Timeline which chronicles the date for the death of newspapers in each country around the world.

It stands to reason that businesses - and the marketing and PR professionals that support them - need to change the way they engage with media, their customers and stakeholders.

The Need for a Search and Social Media Optimised Media Release

The media section - that is, press releases and company news - of so many websites are exceedingly poor. News releases are simply listed in reverse chronological order, and ASX announcements are listed in PDF form in the same way - illegible to Google and add no search value.

No PR professional would dream of sending out a press release without date of release, additional contact information, press optimised photos and company background available. Yet when it comes to the digital landscape this is often done poorly.

The reason is twofold - lack of understanding of how to create a release that is optimised for the web, and no easy process for doing so.

A change in mindset.

PR used to be very much about controlling the message and then broadcasting it. Now PR must also be about encouraging transparent participation in networks and communities to spark conversations - measured in terms of engagement.

For more on the changing landscape of PR in an online world please see my Slideshare presentation on PR 2.0.
