New Media: Working with Bloggers and other New Media
Date(s) - 25/07/2013 - 26/07/2013
Are you cultivating online & offline win-win relationships with the media?
In today’s digital landscape, skills used in traditional media relations no longer seem to suffice. Before media relations professionals can get that press statement out to the mass media, news has already spread through online channels. The attempt to ride on the digital media wave for a more extensive reach has caught them in a tight spot. They fail to realise the instantaneity of digital media calls for a faster response in engaging reporters and managing public sentiment. Without a full grasp of how various media operates, they struggle to craft well-balanced talking points and run the risks of putting forth irrelevant pitches. The key lies in making the best of both new and mainstream media in order to translate brand messages into effective corporate communications.
How do you foster dialogues and shape reputations in this highly fragmented media environment?
Are you creating ‘newsworthy’ stories to attract coverage across platforms?
