The Future of PR Analytics 2019

Location: Ketchum, 3 Bankside, 90 Southwark St, London SE1 0SW
Organiser: PRmoment Events
Price: Early-bird: £150 + vat Normal: £185 + vat

Background: Here are three stand out trends for PR Analytics in 2019:

1. For about the last 5 years various firms have been attempting to develop the AI infrastructure to enable sufficiently accurate automated media data analysis. Until recently these solutions claimed a 70% accuracy rate - so 3 in 10 data points were wrong. In short the technology was not ‘Board’ ready.

But in 2018 the tech caught up and many of these providers claim 90% accuracy - so the PR Analytics game has suddenly changed. The speed and increased data sets that automation allow you, are potentially matched by the accuracy. But does this technology work? Find out at The Future of PR Analytics.

2. There is the long discussed blurring of the lines between marketing disciplines - creating the need to integrate your data across marketing channels. PR need not see itself as being data deficient any longer. Digital PR has changed all of that.

3. No one clicks on adverts anymore. They probably never did but they definitely don’t now. Earned media now plays a vital role in the sales and marketing function of all forward thinking businesses. So if you’re not investing in your PR analytics - you are missing an opportunity to increase your budget.

These themes, from an agency and in-house perspective, will be discussed at “The Future of PR Analytics 2019’.
