How do you increase earned media coverage in a social media world? That’s going to be my topic of conversation at the upcoming PR news social media conference October 20th in New York. First, what is an earned media? There are lots of different definitions. For here it’s about making content so good, so compelling that it gets aired, posted, or shared without having to pay the outlet.

I’ll be presenting with Tim Haslam of SWNS Media. Couple things we’ll be addressing. How do you use social media to drive earned media coverage? How earned media can drive social success. Here’s some interesting facts we’ll be discussing from some research that we’ve done. Did you know 71% of online journalists use outside produced video? 80% of them will use the entire video allowing you to control the message. Are you taking full advantage? We also found that 77% of agency PR pros say it’s harder than it used to be to earn media. If you attend this session, we hope you’ll be finding it a lot easier.
