Your social media newsroom will collect your most recent headlines so viewers get fresh and updated information about your company. While this list is up-to-date, visitors can also search the pressroom and find older news or information related to their specific search. You upload it, and we make it easy to find.
Put a face to your page. With photos, contact info and the names of your press contact people readily available and visible, you have the equivalent of an online business card. Journalists and bloggers won’t have to go hunting when they have a question or want a quote. And by having the correct contacts up there, not just your PR-spokesperson but also your company experts, you save time and avoid unnecessary calls to the wrong person. One step closer to more publicity!
Say cheese! Easy to consume, reproduce, publish and share, photos allow busy readers to absorb a great deal of information about your company – at a glance. Press photos catch viewers’ eyes and greatly increase your chances of getting published. On your social media newsroom, you can upload images directly and also link to your Flickr account.
Films aren’t just for Hollywood! In today's changing media landscape the demand for multi-media content increases rapidly – think iPads. A two or three minute film is a great way to catch footage of a special event, explain a difficult concept or help journalists visualize your news. You don’t always have to involve large production studios, you can shoot informal clips that support your news releases in-house. MyNewsdesk also uploads your video immediately to your YouTube channel if you have one. Feeling restricted by other site’s file limits? Your social media newsroom can host an hour-long video of lectures, events and other noteworthy moments that last more than a few minutes.
Social media news release
The idea of a news release is nothing new. But what exactly is a social media news release? Think of it as a more interactive and engaging news release. Because you can publish your announcements along with photos and videos, it helps you stand out and grab viewer’s attention. Once hooked, readers can engage with your material even further by commenting in real time, asking questions and giving feedback directly on your newsroom page. Your news comes to life!
What’s more, your content is search engine optimized and synchronized with your social media platforms of choice, meaning you can find your news on for example YouTube, Flickr, or Twitter, and near the top of Google searches – within seconds. Most importantly, your social media release stays on MyNewsdesk indefinitely, to be read whenever journalists and influencers are interested.
Make it easy for your newsroom visitors. Here you can provide a quick list of external links to your homepage, social media pages, or other useful sites you want to highlight. Information is just a click away for eager journalists, bloggers and other influencers.
Studies show that 70 percent of journalists now use social media in their research, compared with 41 percent just one year ago. But what is it?
Twitter, a microblogging tool, is just another way to interact with interested parties who want to learn about your brand – 140 characters at a time.
Your tweets are published on your newsroom feed and any news release or update is automatically published on Twitter.
