With the amount of content available on-line, is it truly worth my while chasing publicity?
In a word, YES. It gives you what social media, blogs and advertising don’t – that all important third party endorsement.
Sure … you can that from customers providing endorsements or from positive comments on your social media.
However what media coverage does it elevate that third party endorsement to a whole new level.
It flags to your audiences that journalists not only have a high regard for you and for your organisation but they believe what you have to say is truly worthy of writing or talking about.
Better still – according to research from leading global PR firm Edelman – securing media coverage increases consumer trust in your organisation at a much faster rate than mentions on social media.
The other big benefit of coverage is that when a journalist chooses to use your insights and information in an article or interview it instantly positions you as an authority or thought leader in your industry or field.
And finally … coverage rapidly ratchets up the visibility of your brand.
Some of you may argue that you achieve this by having a great website or strong social media presence. But let’s face it, how often do people actually choose to visit your website or social pages unless strongly encouraged to do so!
