We will, however, customise your newsjacking strategy to fit the messages and style that your company wants to convey. For instance, we may focus on delivering expert quotes on breaking news topics relevant to your industry, which would be a terrific option for finance companies. Alternatively, we can launch a reactive press-driven newsjacking strategy that focuses on quickly releasing trending news or repackaging stories to fit the new story focus in order to obtain more coverage.
Time is of the essence when a news story breaks. Journalists and media outlets will be scrambling to gather the correct quotations and insights for a breaking news story, and journalists and public relations professionals may have as little as 5 minutes to produce a quote.
