The Role of Online Newsrooms in Modern PR

Online newsrooms are more critical today than ever before. With the rise of digital media and the increasing use of the internet as a primary source of news and information, online newsrooms have become crucial tools for businesses and organizations to communicate with their audiences.

Opening a second front on your public image

In a conversation the other day, I was asked, 'How do you convince a client to transfer their investments from a traditional press release delivery service to our online newsroom solution?'. My answer was, 'You don't, and here's why.

Social Licence and online newsrooms

For those who may not be aware, Social Licence is the level of acceptance or approval that stakeholders and communities extend to projects, sites, companies, or industries.

The best company press page is not a press page

There is an AdWords campaign for an online newsroom solution that starts with the line 'don't overpay for PR software'.

In life, there are few exceptions where cheap means better, and when dealing with the reputation of multibillion-dollar originations, cheap is never better.

PR strategies for the next big mining boom

Over the next decade, McKinsey forecasts predict growth in demand for Li-ion batteries to increase at batteries at a compound rate of 30 % per year.

Lookatmedia™ newsroom vs. the alternative

There are two parts to the cost of an effective newsroom, and the first is the cost of not having one. Suppose you have no or an ineffective newsroom that doesn't draw in and support a diverse range of journalists. In that case, you're missing out on earned media opportunities and ways to enhance and protect your reputation. The second cost is the missed opportunities where journalists on deadline are forced to move to other sources for their stories simply because your PR team lacks the resources and time to meet journalists' real needs.
