PRAL Nola Presents: The Vital Importance of Converged Media


Converged Media: Why it’s of vital importance to any content marketing strategy

The amount of stories posted online on a daily basis is enough to make anyone’s head spin. Cut through the noise by making sure paid, earned and owned media are the foundation of your PR/marketing plan. The best content strategies not only focus on posting content to your website and promoting it on social channels, but also incorporates the reach that paid media offers. Not to mention, amplifying a positive piece of earned media on paid channels is the equivalent of a testimonial.  

In this session, we’ll discuss how to balance the three mediums and how to easily repurpose your content to boost your message across all platforms.
