Consumers are interested in knowing about the latest news and events, and they’re using tablets and wearable tech to stay updated. As they look for more ways to satisfy their cravings for news and information on the tech niche, check out these tips that will help you build a better online presence for yourself.
Focus on the trending news
Today’s headlines will be tomorrow’s stale news. Stay on top of all the latest info, news and headlines about relevant tech gear, gadgets, product leaks and more. The more you talk about trends and emerging products, the better prospects of great tech PR you’ll create. Some trends that a tech public relations firm might cover in the upcoming months include “the death of the PC,” “smart wearable tech,” “latest smartphone leaks” and even “the Internet of things.”
Don’t shy away from editorial changes
You need to evolve as soon as consumers’ behaviors do. The Scobleizer blog, for example, used to be one of the best places to get some handy advice and industry insights. However, you don’t really see any updated content there anymore. The reason? Scoble simply shifted to social media and now posts primarily on Facebook and Twitter. He understood the readers’ mentality and went to a place where he would be received better. Now, he posts long and short messages on Facebook along with his video interviews, pictures and even audio posts. This has helped him target his readers better. He gets to engage with them – a big help where tech PR is concerned.
Know your motivations
If you’re involved in tech PR, you might feel overwhelmed by the number of hot buttons to choose from for getting readers’ attention. Study your target sections and find out what triggers them. Then use these triggers as motivation to bring up excellent-quality content. If they find something they want to know about, they’ll feel more involved with your presence.
