Today’s Companies Become Tomorrow’s Media Channels
How to Successfully Navigate the Changing Media Landscape within this New Era of Stakeholder Engagement
THE MEDIA LANDSCAPE
The rise of mobile technologies and social media has completely changed the media environment. Consolidation and continued newsroom cutbacks are bringing more titles under fewer ownership umbrellas and putting the task of news delivery into the hands of even fewer influential journalists. As the media ranks continue to shrink, corporations will need to step in and partner where possible with the media to create the distribution channels.
Gone are the days when brands needed to purchase advertising or secure media placements alone. At a time when it is becoming increasing difficult to differentiate between the role of marketer and publisher, a new world order for brands today has been established. What this presents is an opportunity for corporations to become the content curators - creating their own material on their own websites for their own brands and thereby their own companies.
Ogilvy Media Influence MediaXchange
The global media landscape as we know it has changed. The need for interactive content in this “always on” media age is imperative. Against this back-drop, we have established the Ogilvy Media Influence MediaXchange – an ongoing hub featuring our leaders from around the world discussing the latest issues and trends driving the communications industry today. The below video in our series features Jennifer Risi, head of Ogilvy Media Influence based in New York, discussing five PR trends in 2013 that will affect how we work with existing clients and how we approach future ones. Jen also gives some insight into an exciting opportunity at Ogilvy that will launch in April... tune in to find out!
Media exposure has the unparalleled ability to establish up-and-coming brands, transform existing perceptions and rebuild tarnished reputations. Anyone with an Internet connection can be a source of information—and power—today. In high-pressure situations where results can make or break business, pitching is often relegated to a special team for its media connections. But the truth is that media savvy comes down to the right game plan, not relationship. While there is no one-size-fits-all approach, watch the latest MediaXChange video with Amy Driscoll as she dispels some common media myths and provides a few key universal truths for success.
CONTENT CREATION IS AT THE HEART OF EVERYTHING WE DO
In this new content-starved environment, the line between reporter and PR professional is blurred and an opportunity has been created where brands have a tangible opportunity to influence, shape and drive the dialogue – nationally and globally – in ways that were not possible until now.
