Top Digital PR Agencies and What They Offer
What services do the best digital PR agencies offer?
Digital PR agencies are becoming increasingly popular as businesses realize the importance of online reputation management and brand visibility.
Here at M studio, we love all things brand building and digital PR. For those new to the game, it’s important to explore the services offered by the best digital PR agencies and how they can benefit your business.
First, let's define what digital PR is.
Digital PR uses digital channels to communicate with customers, prospects, and other stakeholders to promote a brand's positive image, manage its reputation, and generate interest in its products or services.
Digital PR is a subset of traditional PR, focusing on online media and channels such as social media, blogs, influencers, and news outlets. And many businesses, including B2B and B2C, gravitate towards digital PR because it is measurable.
One of the main complaints of PR practitioners and clients is that the value of PR is hard to define. You can see it in a headline or hear people talking about a brand, but how do you measure its impact on the bottom line? Digital PR offers ROI in a way that traditional PR has always needed to improve.
Let’s take a look at what services digital PR agencies offer.
Online reputation management: Online reputation management (ORM) is the practice of monitoring and influencing a brand's online reputation. The best digital PR agencies offer ORM services to help businesses maintain a positive image online. This includes monitoring social media and online review sites, responding to negative reviews and comments, and promoting positive content about the brand.
Media Relations: This is a fan favorited and often interchanged with PR as a whole. Specifically, media relations is the practice of building relationships with journalists and media outlets to secure coverage for a brand. The best digital PR agencies have established relationships with various media outlets and can help businesses secure press coverage in online publications, blogs, and on social media. And they offer insights into where to invest time and resources in developing content for high-authority blogs and websites.
Influencer marketing: Influencer marketing is the practice of working with social media influencers to promote a brand. Digital PR agencies have relationships with various influencers in different niches and can help businesses identify the right online personalities to work with.
Content creation and distribution: Content creation and distribution are important to digital PR. This means that your agency helps you create engaging content, such as blog posts, infographics, and videos, and distribute that content to relevant online media outlets and social media platforms.
Search engine optimization (SEO): Search engine optimization is the practice of optimizing a website and its content to rank higher in search engine results pages. The connection between PR and SEO is often overlooked. When both are combined, it is incredibly powerful. PR agencies that understand SEO help businesses improve how they appear in SERPs by advising and/or developing relevant content and securing earned editorial in related news sites and blogs.
Analytics and reporting: This is essential to understanding the impact of digital PR campaigns. At M studio, we love providing regular reports and analytics on our outreach, media coverage, campaign performance, and website traffic. It allows us to always be in line with our clients and think strategically about our work.
