For the first time ever, brands are competing with journalists for scoops, storytelling, and eyeballs. Developing a brand newsroom can help you connect with customers, expand your reach, solidify thought leadership, and keep your finger on the pulse of information.  Good news: You don’t need to secure seven-figure budgets and build out a big staff. In this session, Margaret will talk about how to build a newsroom on the cheap through the 5 W’s of journalism she’s perfected over the years, and how to transform your business into a publishing machine that attracts customers in droves.

Learn these fundamentals backed with data:

— Start with the “what”: your audience, your message, your voice, your style guidelines, and your distribution method.

— Assemble the right “who”: the basic and/or advanced team, blending full time staff and freelance resources and how to hire A+ storytellers.

— Master the “how”: putting it all into practice, from editorial calendar to meetings that don’t suck, and aligning your PR, comms, and social teams for maximum efficiency.
