Who do journalists interview when they want opinions about the changes and trends in your field? For the sake of developing your operations and communications it is important to know what kinds of products and services your competition produces and what tactics they use to get the attention of the media. If your competition gets a notable amount of visibility in the media, it's a sign that you should boost your communications as well.
Measuring the efficiency of communications gets easier with a media monitoring service. You get tangible evidence of how well your press releases are noted in the press and what the tone of discussion about your company is. As a user of a media monitoring service you get reports of your own media monitors to your email every morning. This way you can monitor how effective your communication is. You can also check what kind of communication brings you the most media coverage and develop your company's operations according to the results.
Especially the company management often wants concrete results of the ROI of communications. With the reports of media monitoring and the analytics included in them, it's easy to convince the management that your company's communications and PR have been profitable and that, among other things, reputation and brand creation can truly be influenced with communications.
