4 quick and easy metrics to measure the success of PR campaignsby The Yellow Coin PR Agency in Delhi
For many years, the word measurement would send shivers to the Public Relations (PR) & communication professionals. However, things have been extremely changing in the last few years and there has been a growing demand for strategic value communication and ever growing demands for budget justification needing to be linked to business impact. A good measurement scale as a whole includes adequate process, methodology, standards and clear taxonomy of the industry. In case a PR agency in Delhi, NCR or in any part of the world is showing low interest in adoption of a clear measurement framework this means that the PR outputs as discussed don’t hold the guarantee of being delivered. The following ways will help the PR professionals to adequately measure the PR campaigns’ effectiveness:
1. Domain Authority
At least once or twice in a month, the client domain’s website gets update by Moz and if the content publishing trend is consistent on it slow but steady increase can be easily delivered each month. As the professional course of working on the client’s website increases also increases the rate with which the targeted audience is coming up on the website and preferring the client’s products & services. On an average the constant domain tracking and content delivery can provide about six points per year—or half a point rise every month.
2. Visitors from owned and earned media
The website visitors are never tapped on from one place, they are arriving on the website from numerous sources both owned and earned mediums. While discussing on the cost of the plans mentioning the clear list of the owned and earned contributed content pieces helps in better negotiations and dealings. Keeping a close track of the media placement links backed to the website will help you in getting on these numbers right.
3. Count of Email addresses
If the published content is doing its job then a steady stream of email addresses are there for you. If you are getting click-through to your site, but those visitors aren’t signing up for your email list in exchange for a lead magnet then it’s time for the PR professionals to rethink their target media list. No matter how popular the media outlet, if it’s not driving qualified traffic to your site; it’s not a good fit.
4. Search Engine Optimization (SEO)The Google results as per the primary keywords need to be kept in check at least quarterly, and the content maps are to be adjusted accordingly. But this tracking should be done only through the incognito window as it will provide more accurate reflection of how a prospective customer might see the client in google results. If the tracking is done through regular window then the search results might get affected by the personal search results of the professional.
