Reston, VA (PRWEB)

PublicRelay, the transformative PR software solution for communications professionals in Fortune 500 companies, the Federal government, and trade associations, has been featured in the sixth volume of the PR News Measurement Guidebook, a leading publication providing professional guidance on measuring the impact of public relations and tying communications efforts to business objectives.

PublicRelay’s article entitled “Cut Through the Noise to Track Key Influencers” provides effective strategies for focusing on the key people influencing an organization. Featured as the first article in the Media Relations chapter, PublicRelay’s paper introduces techniques that enable PR teams to more proactively influence coverage in both traditional and social media.

Co-authored by PublicRelay’s managing partners Eric Koefoot and Chris Bolster, the Guidebook article discusses three specific ways to better identify influencers:

1. Blending technology and human analysis to maximize ROI;
2. Using topically relevant influencer statistics to eliminate problems caused by generic scores; and
3. Redefining share of voice to focus efforts on the right channels and messages.

“We are proud that PublicRelay continues to lead the industry in thought leadership in media measurement and analytics” said PublicRelay Managing Partner, Chris Bolster. “This article presents a unique approach to influencer identification that our clients have found works very well in today’s fast-paced media environment.”
