What is a Dynamic, Online Newsroom?
It’s a business forum and communications tool that enables your story to be told by brand journalists – from a perspective only your company or organization can offer.
The newsroom is the factory that runs your organization’s content engine. It’s a place to address industry issues, manage crisis communications, showcase business expertise and advance market position – ensuring that everything is aligned with your strategic agenda.
It’s an ever-present news source, where mainstream and social media can obtain credible articles, photos, videos and story ideas about your operations – all in one place.
The newsroom also is a safe, secure platform that creates two-way conversations around a brand – using traditional and social media, such as Facebook, LinkedIn, YouTube and Twitter – and creating all important SEO for your brand.
Mapping Content to the Business
Stories told on this digital platform go beyond static, corporate news sites. Using content mapping, stories are grounded in the business and create a clear line of sight, which puts your content in context.
The newsroom’s power is that it merges journalism, corporate communications and interactive technology, connecting a brand in new ways with its many audiences.
The dynamic format is featured as best practice in a report by the Communications Executive Council, as well as being cited in The Bulldog Reporter’s Daily Dog and publications by PRSA and IABC
