Maximizing the Value of Earned Media: 5 Creative Ways to Repurpose It

By January 16, 2024No Comments

In the ever-changing world of public relations and digital marketing, securing earned media is no small feat. Earned media is publicity that has been gained through other ventures apart from the more commonly used method of paid advertising. A traditional model is exposure generated through the help of a PR company and a strategic public relations plan. Earned media also includes word-of-mouth and social conversations, reviews of a product or service, blog post mentions and referrals and conversations in tangential communities. Earned media is one of the four pieces of the PESO model from SpinSucks. At Fort Lauderdale and Aspen-based public relations and marketing agency Durée & Company, when a brand or client is featured in a news article, receives a positive review, or is mentioned in a news segment it is a testament to hard work and expertise in the industry. However, the benefits of earned media don’t end with the initial publication. By repurposing earned media, its reach and impact can be extended. Today’s #DynamoDiary will break down five creative ways to achieve that.

  1. Create Shareable Social Media Content:

Leverage the positive buzz generated by earned media by transforming key quotes, headlines and visuals into compelling social media content. Share snippets from articles, reviews or interviews to engage the audience and highlight a brand’s credibility.

  1. Incorporate it into a Pitch Deck:

When presenting a company to potential investors, partners or clients, showcasing earned media can add significant credibility and validation to a pitch. This demonstrates that the company is reputable and well-regarded by the media, which can assist in gaining trust and support.

  1. Curate Email Newsletters:

Share earned media with email subscribers in the form of a curated newsletter. Summarize the coverage, provide links, and add insights or commentary to offer additional value to those who look to a company/brand as an impactful source of information. Position it so they get a sneak peek, a tune-in alert or something special for being a loyal part of the audience.

  1. Develop Infographics and Visuals:

Earned media can often contain a wealth of information and insights, but not everyone has the time or patience to sift through lengthy articles or reports to uncover the key takeaways. That’s where the power of visual content comes in. By converting the data and main points of an article into infographics or other visual aids, information becomes more accessible, shareable and memorable. With just a glance, viewers can understand the main ideas and gain a deeper understanding of the topic at hand.

  1. Craft Engaging Blog Posts:

Repurposing the core content of earned media into informative blog posts is a great opportunity to expand on the topics discussed in the media coverage, providing readers with more in-depth insights. By doing so, the insights become a valuable resource for readers. It’s important to make sure credit is given to the source by linking back to it. This helps establish credibility and helps build relationships with other industry professionals.

Maximizing the value of earned media is not just about securing positive coverage but strategically repurposing it to extend its impact. By transforming original material into diverse formats that can amplify its reach and credibility, it is not only breathing new life into the content, but also ensuring that valuable narratives crafted for one platform can now resonate across various channels. This will ultimately solidify brand recognition and trust. Embracing these strategies will allow every drop of value to be squeezed out of media triumphs. Stay creative, resourceful and be sure to maximize the potential of hard-earned coverage.
