Business Wire Announces Press Release Measurement Upgrades Including Search Referral and Social Media Engagement Data

More Detailed Metrics added to NewsTrak Reports as part of Business Wire’s Global-Mobile-Social-Measurable initiative

NEW YORK--()--Business Wire announced enhancements to its press release measurement dashboard today, providing more detailed analytics to assist communications professionals in measuring the impact of each individual press release.

NewsTrak reports are designed to assist companies in developing and refining their messages to maximize their Return on Marketing Investment (ROMI). Reports are structured to provide summary overviews and expanded section detail and are easily exported to be shared and used in broader analysis efforts.

Measurement Report Features

Key sections of the NewsTrak reports provide detail on press release visibility and release views; traffic sources; distribution and online postings; user engagement with different elements of the press release; search engine referral data, social network engagement and comparisons to recent press releases.

“Content + Context = Impact,” says Laura Sturaitis, Executive Vice President, Media Services and Product Strategy, and the architect of the measurement upgrades as well as author of a new press release measurement white paper.

“We’ve committed substantial resources to helping our clients establish the ROMI—the return on the marketing investment in both their time and their money—when it comes to their press releases. These reporting upgrades help practitioners get a clearer picture of what’s working and what’s not so they can quickly adjust to achieve their goals,” she added.

The expanded NewsTrak measurement reports are available now and are accessible when ordering a press release distribution circuit with the GloMoSoMe (Global-Mobile-Social-Measurable) bundle. Clients may access their NewsTrak reports by logging on at www.BusinessWire.com, and clicking the Reports & Order History tab on their BW Connect homepage.
