Proving it: Going from News Release Performance to Measuring Brand Perceptions

TORONTO, Oct. 4, 2016 /CNW/ - Metrics matter when it comes to reporting the success of your PR efforts, but while big numbers are great, it's also important to correctly frame these results. As communications professionals we have moved beyond measuring the effectiveness of a news release solely in terms of earned media coverage. There are now better ways than ever to monitor and measure the impact of your news release on brand perceptions.

Using correct data tools, it is possible to give your client a more complete and holistic view of how their release has performed. News release performance has moved beyond the just the number of views.

Add value to your service, by demonstrating the performance of a release to a client in a context that they understand; this ensures the results and effectiveness of the news release resonates with them.  

CNW's whitepaper, Proving it: Going From News Release Performance To Measuring Brand Perceptions, discusses the importance of not only measuring the performance of your news release but going one step further and measuring how your news release can drive and impact brand perceptions.

What metrics matter beyond new release views? This whitepaper looks at metrics such as:


Potential reach






Conversion rates


Sentiment and influence
