Content Marketing Changes Public Relations Strategies

Content Marketing Changes Public Relations Strategies | J Sherlock Group Marketing & PR | Scoop.it
Shannon Byrne is the Content and PR Manager at Mention where she crafts words, creates strategies, and recruits loyal advocates. Back in 2007-2008, when Twitter was really taking off, the PR industry faced a pivot point.
Janice Sherlock's insight:

This is an excellent article by Shannon Byrne about how the traditional strategies for public relations are changing. With content marketing becoming more widespread and adding new distribution channels, it has become a valuable tool.


Whether it's a blog post, submitted article or a newsletter item,  journalists are finding new sources for content that were not previously available. Company marketing departments see the viability of the use of content too.


Contributions from people in various industries that share insights are often picked up by an editorial staff, adding visibility for the company as a bonus.


Creating engaging (and somewhat) promotional content is a new way to put public relations to use as part of a marketing plan to help with visibility and growth for a business.
