When I was at HP the editorial team did title tests and found noticable performance improvements.

Debbie Horovitch's curator insight, February 1, 2013 1:44 PM

I need to get a LOT better at writing titles that draw people in! It's an important element - but at the same time, the smart, funny titles that are more like headlines, don't do as well for SEO organic results imho

A hands-on guide to visual press releases

A hands-on guide to visual press releases | Public Relations & Social Media Insight | Scoop.it

A common question I hear from PR professionals is, “How can I make my press releases more visual?”

Most PR pros understand that visual content is important, but for an industry that still relies heavily on pitch emails and text-based press releases, making the switch to visual PR can be daunting.

There are many reasons to include visual content in your press releases, but the biggest by far is that visual content gets shared more. A lot more. Facebook posts with images get 53 percent more likes and 104 percent more comments than the average post. Tweets with pictures are nearly twice as likely to be retweeted. Content with compelling images gets 94 percent more views than content without.

If that’s not enough to convince you that visual content matters, chew on this: A 2012 study by PR Newswire found that press releases with photos garnered nearly twice as many views as those with text alone. The more multimedia you add, the more that percentage grows. Press releases with text, photos, videos, and downloadable files received up to 9.7 times as many views as plain text releases....

Jeff Domansky's insight:

If you don't use visuals in your news releases, you're not getting the picture nor the results.

Five Good Guidelines for Content Curators from Joshua Merritt

Five Good Guidelines for Content Curators from Joshua Merritt | Public Relations & Social Media Insight | Scoop.it

Robin Good: If you are looking for ways to improve your content curation efforts, Joshua Merritt has published five useful guidelines to follow.

 

These include abandoning high frequency / high-volume practices, integrating your opinion whenever possible, researching deeper, citing sources and treating curation like original content production.

 

Joshua writes: "If two different people curate and distribute the same content (which happens every day times thousands), what makes the experience of your followers more valuable?


The answer doesn’t have to lie in a single piece of content, but it must lie in the story arch of the greater body of work, and the more you treat each item you curate as a diamond in the rough that needs some extra cutting and polishing to be ready for your audience, the better your content will perform and the more loyalty you will drive in your followers."

 

 

Rightful. 7/10
