PRNewswire Brings New Tools to Story Telling

By PRNewswire, Special for  USDR.
Visuals such as photos, videos and graphics can dramatically increase views and engagement with text content.  Although it’s practically a mandate to use multimedia as part of communications strategies and marketing campaigns, practitioners can be left scratching their heads at the best approach, platforms and tools for doing  so.

Effective content distribution involves a tactical mix of visual and social media  #PR

PR Newswire originally developed the Multimedia News Release to offer marketing and communications professionals the option to distribute content via a landing page, fully customized in a brand’s style with appropriate color scheme, logo, and multimedia content. In the latest iteration the platform offers  communicators:

  • A single point of access to  content;
  • Focus on driving visitors to engage and  share;
  • Flexibility to create a custom branded  experience;
  • Access to online reporting at any  time.

“These updates are an evolution of our cutting-edge solutions for content distribution,” says Jason Edelboim, senior vice president of global product at PR Newswire. “Enhanced reporting capabilities and added flexibility in design give our clients greater control of their messaging and better visibility into  outcomes.”

The new Multimedia News Release design features and highlights a central hero image, promotes additional multimedia content in a gallery centrally located on the page, and includes a showcase area to call attention to video content. It offers the greatest flexibility for brands to truly customize and adapt the audience experience around specific content.

In addition to design flexibility, PR Newswire also streamlined reporting on Multimedia News Releases-all data will now be readily available within the Visibility Reports platform. This update will make it easier for users to see how each of their communications efforts measures up, and offers options for comparing different  campaigns.
