support relationships with journalists and reach more media opportunities
The global media landscape is rapidly evolving. Mainstream journalists operating for established titles will always be of vital importance, but influencers of all shapes and sizes now make up a significant longtail media opportunity that should be maximised. It is not viable to manage those relationships individually, which is why we developed our advanced online newsroom platform, which supports both inbound and the more traditional outbound media relationship management.
your online newsroom
An online newsroom provides journalists and influencers with all the assets and information they need to publish engaging brand stories as quickly and efficiently as possible. Beautifully designed and exactly matching brand guidelines, an online newsroom by Visarc is user-friendly, secure and feature rich.
Your online newsroom at a glance
The newsroom homepage is where all of your most important time-bound content is aggregated. Feature story functionality enables pieces to be promoted to the beautiful slider which can be customised to fit within the visual hierarchy of the website. Social media posts can also be integrated showing a different side of your organisation.
Present all of your news articles in an attractive format to mobile users and beyond. Your news releases can be filtered by content type and topic using the integrated search function. The minimalist user-centred design and multi-lingual functionality makes it easy for international users to find the actual news articles they are looking for. Release detail pages are feature-packed with online press kits strong calls to action and of course links to high-quality images and videos.
image and video archives
Upload high-resolution media files such as images and videos and your Visarc newsroom will automatically create optimised versions of the assets for users and search engines to discover whilst retaining the high-quality versions for downloads. As with the news stories journalists and other stakeholders can easily filter the files by media type and topic to find the material they’re looking for.
product range pages
Sometimes consumer focused websites do not supply product range content in way that suits the needs of media professionals. The Visarc newsroom is flexible and enables communications teams to pull together their product line up in way that suits them. Clear hierarchies can be set, technical information presented and of course all relevant news and media for a product model pulled together in one place, no more searching around.
Different markets or business units can be represented by different communication specialists and in some cases different agencies. Our newsroom software is flexible offering an up-to-date contacts directory enabling inbound enquires to reach the right person.
virtual and in-person events
Signpost webinars and other events within your online newsroom and make it easy for journalists and influencers to read more and sign up. Content hubs can also be created to support event delivery and post-event recaps, including supporting visual media.
