Online Is Everything

Professionals in America spend an incredible amount of time online, an average of 22.5 hours per week, according to the USC Annenberg School Center for the Digital Future.

The majority of our consumer base is online. The result? Digital marketing and PR(Public Relations) has never been more important.

From Paper To Screens

Traditional PR is all about working with journalists to have your business featured in newspapers and magazines. Before the dotcom boom, PR specialists and publicists’ goals focused on the number of times their clients were included in newspapers, magazines, radio and television.

And then came the internet. Many newspapers and magazines moved their stories to websites, and the role of traditional PR shifted. Just as publicists used to compete to get their clients in the most widely read newspapers, now they’re competing to get their clients in front of vast online audiences.

Defining Digital Public Relations(PR)

Digital PR is not dissimilar to traditional PR, but its focus is online visibility:

  • Writing and sending press releases
  • Building relationships with journalists

  • Writing press releases with relevant, high-value backlinks
  • Building relationships with online journalists
  • Organizing podcasts, events, and reviews
  • Using SEO to secure a high ranking on search engines
  • Writing thought leadership pieces for online publications with high-quality backlinks
  • Creating content for social media

SEO and Google Ranking

Digital PR’s first goal is online visibility. It’s important to show up on the first page of a Google search, and cleverly executed digital PR can achieve this and more.

A well thought out digital strategy will include SEO; link profiles, anchor text distribution, link monitoring, and ranking all play a role in increasing online presence and measuring the efficacy of a marketing campaign.

Press Releases Have Limited Scope

Press releases are polarizing. A good press release gets across the who, what, when, where, why, and how as quickly (and concisely) as possible. They’re also incredibly easy to write poorly—(many journalists keep “press release fail” compilations on their social media channels). Publicly owned companies must use them to communicate, however, and most niche market publications rely on press releases for their information.

But simply putting company news in a press release and popping that release on a distribution service is unlikely to help your digital strategy.

How To Increase The Value Of Press Releases

  • Include backlinks. You MUST include backlinks in your press releases. The backlink is the key to digital PR value.
  • Create a timeline and build momentum. A press release, even if it’s just on your website, shows current and potential clients that your business is doing well.
  • Use them as part of a targeted media pitch. A press release is a great way to show credibility, especially when you’re pitching thought leadership pieces.

Digital PR: Thought Leadership

Much of the value of thought leadership comes from those high-ranking backlinks. Use a tool like the Moz domain authority checker when checking backlink value, and make sure to do your research.

Some journalists do not include backlinks in their articles and will be VERY frustrated if you email to ask for one. It’s always best to pitch to a journalist who has used backlinks before, to get the full digital value of the opportunity.

The Importance Of Social Media

The rise of social media has dramatically affected the way most businesses think about PR. Where social media was once about content creation, digital PR optimizes social media channels and makes it all about delivery. Whilst content is key, social media for digital PR is all about measurement.

Social media offers a range of insights, ranging from likes and shares to reach and impressions. Use the data to zero in on sales. Are there any correlations between sales and impressions, likes, or shares? This data has the potential to revitalize your business.

PR Relations With Online Journalists

  • Only pitch relevant ideas. In our digital world, it’s so easy to research what journalists have written about recently and what they’re interested in. Take your time, do the research, and in your pitch, mention a recent article. Everyone likes to be complimented. A journalist who knows you care is much more likely to throw a backlink in as a favor.
  • Respond quickly. If a journalist needs something, whether it’s a photo, a comment, or another story, get back to them as soon as you can. This may mean keeping an eye on your emails when a story is about to break.

Organizing Podcasts

According to Edison Research, 144 million Americans listen to podcasts. Odds are, your customers are some of them. Podcasts are a fantastic way to tell your story, because they allow you to use your own words with your own voice. Podcasts are also a good way to engage your audience and have them keep coming back to you for industry intel.

When it comes to return on investment, the answer is clear: today’s most effective PR is digital.
