What is Digital PR?

Digital PR is the digital evolution of traditional public relations. It encompasses many different communication methods that help a brand gain authority in its industry. For example, brand mentions and links on the internet ultimately result in better search engine rankings.
Digital PR, as its own term, is made up of several sub-disciplines and is more than simply creating digital PR for a brand. The public relations work of a brand is supplemented by content marketing, search engine optimization (SEO) and targeted distribution (seeding). This means that so-called digital PR campaigns are designed, produced, and disseminated (seeded) jointly by experts from all sub-disciplines.

Digital PR is more than content marketing

The basic idea of content marketing is to help users interact with one’s own website or channels through exciting and informative content. Content marketing starts at the beginning of the well-known AIDA marketing funnel and should help a brand attract the attention of the desired target group without marketing products or being driven by false KPIs such as sales. This is exactly where Digital PR comes in. With the basic idea of content marketing, digital PR is about creating content that is interesting for a certain target group AND for journalists and media professionals. At best, the chosen content is so interesting that it is reported on in the media landscape and social networks. Depending on the individual goals, there are various formats, measures, and strategies that have proven themselves in our years of work at Claneo.

Newsworthiness and seeding – Digital PR campaigns must be thought holistically

In order for a digital PR campaign idea to have a good chance of finding its way into the media, it must be properly scrutinized for newsworthiness while it is still being developed. Unfortunately, simply offering content such as guides is no longer enough – it needs additional added value. Extensive data analyses, representative surveys, or exciting city or urban comparisons can be used as content for this purpose. But don’t worry, digital PR doesn’t necessarily have to focus on complex data sets. Depending on the target group, the brand, and the desired media such as an infographic, an interactive map, or a simple tool, can also be the basis for a future article about the campaign. The most important thing is that the content is prepared and communicated in an appealing way to the appropriate journalists, bloggers, and media professionals. Seeding is a dynamic process across multiple channels and ultimately determines the success of a digital PR campaign, as mentions, interactions and links in relevant media are the main goals. Classic PR work via one’s own channels is no longer sufficient here.

SEO – digital PR campaigns also want to be found

The aspect of search engine optimization is the final piece of digital PR. This is done when the content on the website ranks for specific keywords in the search results. Keyword research is an integral part of digital PR campaigns at Claneo. This is where the power of Digital PR becomes apparent: creating SEO-optimized content that is also written for users and that has added value, combined with the backlinks, and mentions that the campaign generates in the media, resulting in a good chance of grabbing the top places in the search results. Through clever internal linking on the campaign page to further topics within a domain, the whole domain is strengthened and thus also benefits in the medium and long term by building organic and valuable backlinks. The incoming link power is controlled in a targeted manner to ensure that your brand presents itself to search engines as an authority in its subject area.

Conclusion: Classic PR + Content Marketing + SEO = Digital PR

Digital PR is defined by the symbiosis of its sub-disciplines. If digital PR measures are conceived, produced, and distributed holistically and by experts from all sub-disciplines, they have a greater chance of ensuring a company or brand is talked about in the long term. Digital PR is the modern way to digitally build trust and authority for a brand and position itself ahead of the competition.

This is how we work with you

01 – Goal definition & analysis

The cornerstone of a successful digital PR campaign are the goals and a joint exchange about them. To this end, we get to know each other in a kick-off meeting, conduct a joint needs analysis and set goals for the campaign. In addition, the most important technical and content-related possibilities and conditions are clarified here.

02 – Concept

A digital PR campaign lives from its idea. Once the goals have been set, we start designing exciting content formats that fit your target group and the media that could report on them. To do this, we use various brainstorming and evaluation techniques based on experience from numerous successful projects.

03 – Production

After we have agreed on an idea in exchange with you, we start with the research or data collection. For this, we use only proven market research methods and sources to deliver the best possible data quality. With experienced in-house experts, we design meaningful digital content in image and writing and then take care of the technical implementation of the landing page ourselves or in consultation with your experts.

04 – Distribution

Distribution, also known as seeding, determines the success of a digital PR campaign. For the best possible results, we work with professional structures and tools to give our project the media attention it deserves. Of course, we keep you continuously informed about all developments.

05 – Reporting

The final step is to measure the successes and results: How well did the digital PR campaign work and in which media was the information picked up and how?

Frequently asked questions

Why Digital PR?

Digital marketing is constantly evolving, and SEO is no exception. Since the previous practices for gaining organic backlinks are no longer efficient enough, we see it as necessary to break new ground. The introduction of the Digital PR department within Claneo is justified by the increasing importance of this topic for the digital market. The Digital PR team intends to further develop and drive this topic in a professional way.

What is the difference between traditional PR and Digital PR?

Digital PR encompasses all methods that help a brand gain authority in its industry, brand mentions and links online, and consequently better search engine rankings. As part of a digital PR strategy, this starts with developing high-quality content that drives interest and interaction with a brand (pull communication) and ensures mentions on social media, which can generate organic backlinks. Digital PR not only pursues improving a brand’s external image, but also supports authority on Google through high-quality clippings. The growing importance of Digital PR for Google was confirmed by John Mueller (Webmaster Trends Analyst at Google) through his tweet in January.
