PR News tracks the Twitter presence of the top-earning Fortune 50 companies.
After Businessweek released its list of the most innovative companies, PR News informally checked on how the top 15 match up with their Facebook presence.
A new study on social media highlights, among other findings, the motivational differences between men and women in following a brand on Twitter, which should give PR pros pause when tweeting to brand followers.
With the explosion of consumer-generated media, opinion research has become one of the pillars of communications strategy. To explore the ins and outs of external surveys as a media relations tool, PR News asked corporate PR heads who often field surveys and an online research firm executive about the benefits, options, challenges and possible pitfalls in conducting meaningful research.
This survey asked PR executives and managers how they are thinking about executing social media measurement and what role it plays in the measurement mix.
PR Executives still have a ways to go when it comes to generating meaningful social media metrics, according to a new survey of nearly 800 communications professionals conducted by PR News and Waggener Edstrom Worldwide.
Fielded to nearly 600 PR professionials, this PR News/PRWeb survey aimed to learn the tactics, perceptions and trends around traditional (sent through the wire) and online press releases. The survey findings show that press releases are in a transformational stage.
While the press release is still considered a key vehicle for delivering news to the media, PR professionals are using them for much more in the digital age, according to a new study that examines PR professionals’ perceptions of press releases, and their motivations to using them as part of their communications platform.
Digital communications’ impact on meeting business objectives is more indisputable than ever, but that doesn’t mean executives have abandoned traditional media measures—quite the opposite. A recent survey of PR News and BurrellesLuce measuring goals in integrated marketing programs yielded interesting results.
The PR/communications profession as a whole seems to have come a long way in understanding the value of measuring and analyzing the effectiveness of their media relations efforts—this according to the results of the PR News/Cision Media Measurement survey. The results also shed light on the various aspects of media measurement that are increasingly viewed as important.
