What is the value of digital PR for a small business?

Digital public relations is essential because it introduces a company to new target audiences. Digital PR can also help increase a company's website traffic. Digital press releases are frequently picked up by media outlets and used to generate new inbound links to a company's website. These links aid in search engine optimization, making it easier for potential customers to find the company online.

Here are some of the ways that digital PR can help a small business:

  • Increase website traffic - As your brand is mentioned online more frequently and in more places, more people will begin to visit your website.
  • Increases SEO rankings. Google began as a hypertext search engine. Backlinks play an important role in how websites appear in search engine results pages. In general, the more relevant the links, the higher the website will rank. Digital PR aids in the acquisition of backlinks at a large scale.
  • Generates leads. When website traffic increases, so does the number of new leads. Through SEO, digital PR increases organic search traffic and referral traffic.
  • Increases sales. Digital PR leads to the growth of brand trust. When a consumer believes in a brand, they are more likely to buy it.
  • Establish yourself as an expert in your field - Publishing high-quality articles on authority sites will strengthen your reputation as a trustworthy source of information and increase trust in your brand.
  • Build a brand. Your target audience will start hearing more positive things about your brand and seeing an increase in the number of positive reviews.

Repurpose / Reuse Your Content

A digital PR campaign must include content marketing. The more people who share and discover your content, the greater your reputation and authority.

By reassigning existing content, you can transform it into a different type of content that can be shared or published on a different platform. One blog post, for example, can be enhanced by including additional information and transforming it into a variety of other types of content, such as:

  • An infographic
  • A guest blog post
  • An article in the local newspaper or trade publication
  • A LinkedIn news update
  • A short video or Reel

In this way, it's not just about rewriting the content, but also about adding value and strengthening your authority voice.
