The Publicity Insider: Publicist, Heal Thy Online Pressroom
Remarkably, a perplexing divide exists between what publicity seekers think journalists want and what journalists expect to find in a proper online newsroom.
According to a recent Vocus survey of over 1,000 journalists and PR people, hereís the "must-haves" for any proper newsroom as identified by the surveyed journalists:
=> A clear link to the pressroom from the homepage
=> Basic Contact Info - Believe it or not, not all newsrooms provide this vital info.
=> Photographs - This is a no-brainer. The media needs quick access to artwork. Save yourself a ton of time & money by placing 300 dpi and 70 dpi (dots per inch) images in your pressroom
=> Executive Team Info - This puts a face behind the business - make sure to include a photo !
=> Press Releases - If youíve sent reporter a press release, but it isnít on your site, youíve instantly lost credibility. Keep it updated.
=> Research/Study Data, Corporate Background Info, Links and related sources to support your news, Awards, Upcoming Events, Speeches and Past News.
