Maximising your PR and Communications strategy is no easy feat. Given the volume and variety of channels you have to conquer, finding the right path to your audience and delivering your brand messages can seem insurmountable at times.

1. Monitoring

Having a comprehensive and accurate readout of your media activity is a fundamental requirement of effective communications. We’ve created resources that make this valuable information as simple as possible to find, organise and understand.

Our technology, merged with our expert consultancy and support, gives you the ability tomonitor brands, people, competitors, sectors, and more, giving you a detailed real-time picture of the media landscape.

Our automated media monitoring solution uses our proprietary news crawler to capture a phenomenal 6 million pieces of content everyday, more than any other media crawler. This mass of information can be distilled, prioritised and visualised quickly and clearly via our platform.

A more customisable platform is also available for communications leaders wanting more flexibility and consultancy support with their monitoring. This includes the option of easy-to-use briefing reports that can be tailored to your stakeholders’ preference and format.

2. Measurement

The right data is a powerful asset, but being able to interpret your data accurately turns information into insights you can use.

Our analytical toolkit is a powerful resource to measure the impact of your campaigns, letting you see audience numbers, sentiment, and page visits, among many relevant factors. Understanding how your brand compares to peers and competitors, you can assess campaigns for growth opportunities with tools like Power of Voice. This custom metric combines presence, relevance and publication authority into one powerful figure.

How effective are these tools? When accommodation giant Airbnb and genomics company 23andMe teamed up to launch a communications strategy based on the concept of heritage travel, they relied on Onclusive’s measurement tools to optimise their campaign. Their aim was to have consumers engage with their roots via travel experiences based on their ancestry.

With Onclusive, these brands were able to measure the reactions of the media and their audience — including 190 total articles worldwide, 10,200 likes across owned and earned media. Even more telling, there were 2,215 visits to Airbnb and 23andMe’s online properties, which shows how our metrics can help directly impact business outcomes.
