FAQ: What you Need to Know Before Hiring a Digital PR Agency

How does digital PR work?

Digital PR improves your digital visibility by earning high-authority and relevant links to your business’s website.

We produce research-based, and keyword-rich, content and pitch it to the media to secure inbound coverage.

Every link is a signal to Google that your website is a source of trust and authority, helping improve your organic visibility in search and keyword rankings. 

How long does digital PR take?

Our digital PR campaigns take about 12 weeks from start to finish. Once an idea is approved, your content strategist will begin research, keyword optimization, design, and copywriting.

We start our window of active pitching and media outreach once you’ve reviewed and published the content.

What is the typical timeline to see results from digital PR?

Digital PR is a long-term investment in your company’s online visibility. Results of our digital PR efforts vary depending on the digital environment your business exists in and the scope of our engagement. 

We’ll work with you from the start to define measurable goals and objectives, creating a timeframe that reflects your unique goals. 

The immediacy of seeing your target results will depend on the competitiveness of your industry, the consistency of content production, and your initial website authority. 

Active link building campaigns can earn links within a matter of days of the implementation of our media outreach strategy. 

However, we don’t declare wins on one campaign alone. Our engagements are designed to methodically strengthen your website’s backlink profile by earning widespread quality coverage over the course of multiple content campaigns and keyword pages. 

How does digital PR differ from traditional PR?

Traditional PR is exactly what it sounds like – a traditional, direct approach to public relations that utilizes staple channels such as press releases and media to manage public opinion about your brand, your personnel, your products. Digital PR, on the other hand, utilizes newer, digital channels such as websites and social media, to manage brand awareness and simultaneously influence SEO and link building initiatives.

Both aim to build brand awareness, increase positive sentiments about business, and help companies reach broader audiences. Traditional PR can be more difficult to measure, whereas digital PR has easy-to-track metrics and KPI’s when it comes to measuring impressions, engagements, and interactions online.

What digital PR metrics do you track and report on?

Our link reports are updated in real-time as our team locates coverage for our digital PR campaigns.

We track Moz’s domain authority (DA) and Ahrefs’ domain rating (DR) of the websites linking to the content, as well as link type (unique vs. syndicated), do follow/no follow, and publication details.

For keyword-driven content, our team tracks the visibility and ranking of keywords as well as page traffic.
