Here’s some of what we talked about:
On whether a perfect content strategy exists:
A2: No! But you can come close when you marry your target audience with stories that entertain, inform and serve their needs #measurepr
A2 (cont.): Many in biz obsess over WHAT to post but skip over WHY they post. Define benefits for customers and business first. #measurepr
#measurePR community member Aidan Lukomnik chimed in:
A2) Perfect is a target. You can get really close, but never quite there. You have to constantly update to ensure you’re relevant #measurepr
On how PR helped them get to where they are:
A3: It’s really the same skill set. You figure out the audience of the media property you’re pitching #measurepr
A3 (cont.) I had/have beefs with traditional PR, but I’ve learned tons from the @prtini and @shonali types evolving the field. #measurepr
On the metrics to use when analyzing content:
Metrics are client driven. It all depends what they are looking to accomplish. If they want to measure brand recognition\ #measurepr
A4: Sessions/uniques and pageviews are still important, but they’re losing ground to real engagement stats. #measurepr
