PR Newswire Case Study Outlines Tips for Successful Content Promotion through Syndication

NEW YORK, Dec. 21, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- If content is king, audience is a marketer's ace. Content posted on a website or blog doesn't result in increased brand awareness, more leads or greater business growth unless the right audience can find it. Even the most successful marketers look for ways to continue growing their audience and expanding the reach of their content.

This is explored in PR Newswire's case study, PhRMA Increases Blog Readership & Reaches Broader Audiences: A Content Syndication Case Study. PhRMA, the Pharmaceutical Research and Manufacturers of America, approached PR Newswire to find new ways to attract and diversify the audience of their successful blog, The Catalyst.

Although The Catalyst blog was a top content site in the biopharmaceutical research industry, PhRMA was interested in reaching a broader audience beyond followers of their owned and social channels. So they turned to press releases to syndicate and promote The Catalyst's content.

Taking a data-driven approach to their content release strategy resulted in an increase of views and engagement from the government agencies, trade associations, and other audiences PhRMA wished to reach. The brand chose to A/B test different types of press releases to promote their content, with outstanding results.

  • What types of press releases worked for PhRMA, and how it informed their content strategy;
