Is measuring the impact of PR more difficult than the measurement of marketing?
Dave Stevens, Marketing Director, British Land

  • Comparing the measurement of marketing and PR in B2B markets
  • PR can contribute marketing ROI in B2B markets but too often its measurement is done poorly
  • Don’t be tempted to measure activity, measure what matters to the business
  • Is marketing measurement currently more sophisticated than PR measurement?

Consumers don’t hear communications in silos, so don’t measure communications in silos
Karen Prichard, Managing Director Reputation, Ebiquity

  • Measurement has changed: Boards are increasingly looking for data to show the impact of the different forms of communications on organisational objectives and now require marketing data to show impact on objectives
  • Is messaging equally effective across all media types?  
  • Why PR professionals must understand the impact on company objectives of their work
  • Soft brand metrics versus advertising – what we are learning? The mix of financial and softer KPIs
  • Integrated and convergence measurement: Pinpointing and differentiating the effect impact of PR and advertising through econometric modelling

Understand your impact on sales, that is the best measurement
Paul Wooding, Director of Public Relations, EMEAI at WD, a Western Digital company

  • Are we framing the measurement of PR wrongly?
  • There are lots of measurement tools out there but are we in danger of measuring the wrong stuff?
  • Why PR campaigns should be focused on how they will impact the business
  • Understand your impact on sales, that is the best measurement
  • If you can’t say how your PR budget has impacted the business, you risk losing that budget
