How to adapt PR for technology companies to the changing media landscape
Publications are closing. Technology media is consolidating. It’s moving online and it’s employing fewer journalists. The need to drive eye balls for advertisers increasingly influences the topics that get covered.
These are just some of the issues facing technology companies around the world.
Keeping pace with the changing digital media landscape, particularly if you have to do it in multiple territories, can be a daunting task. That’s why Worldcom PR Group put together a panel of experts from around the world to answer your questions on a Q&A webinar. The webinar lasted just 40-minutes. There was no presentation – just your questions answered. Listen to an on-demand recording of this webinar.
We had some great questions such as:
- How much is the technology media consolidating in your country?
- Does advertising help or hinder securing editorial?
- How important is social media in driving the media agenda?
