TORONTO, Aug. 16, 2016 /CNW/ - If you work in public relations or digital marketing, you know that despite both falling under the umbrella of marketing, these disciplines couldn't be more different. Traditionally, PR was difficult to link to the bottom line, whereas digital marketing is a data-driven activity and has always been much more concerned with metrics.
This CNW article examines how you can supplement your paid campaigns with PR content, such as news releases, white papers and other branded content to enhance your digital marketing ROI.
PR provides digital marketers with the opportunity to influence purchasing decisions earlier than is possible with most paid media. This collaboration between these seemingly different activities can actually result in a much greater ROI than either could achieve independently.
Digital marketing can leverage PR's strengths to demonstrate ROI and by utilizing PR metrics, can uncover an array of data. These PR metrics include:
- Distribution metrics
- Earned media metrics
- Traffic metrics
- Audience metrics
- Engagement metrics
The most valuable reason to use these PR metrics is that they give you a deeper insight into your customers. They allow you to analyze what they like, what they respond to and how they engage with your messaging. The other critical value of using PR metrics is that they allow you to demonstrate ROI much more effectively.
