The brand newsroom is a tool that has permanently permeated the PR DNA of online brand presence. It is no longer a nice-to-have, but more like a must-have for effective PR communication on the web. Brand newsrooms build audiences around their brands online – and it’s not only bloggers and journalists, but very often the target audience themselves. Check out the best brand newsroom examples of using Prowly’s Brand Journal function. Take a look at how the Polish branches of global brands such as Spotify, IKEA, and National Geographic use it to their full advantage.

One-platform thinking is outdated. Communication A.D. 2016 looks a great deal different than just a few years back – a ton of relevant channels used by brands to communicate with their audience and a hyper-interactive environment in which we operate. There is YouTube, Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter, all with individual brand channels. There are blogs, press releases, webpages, outside sources, and a whole lot more. All these channels are where the brand story is created for the market, the media, and the consumer.

The role of a brand newsroom is to bring all these channels together, creating a heartbeat for brand communication.

Spotify Brand Journal

Spotify Brand Journal

At the heart of Spotify’s brand communication in Poland is their Prowly Brand Journal available at spotify.prowly.com. There, besides traditional information and press releases, the brand publishes articles on all the latest things in the app itself along with lifestyle and music news. It is also there that you will find a live stream of the entire content from the brand’s channels on Facebook, Instagram, YouTube, and Twitter. The whole service is fully responsive and beautifully presents itself across the entire range of mobile devices. The application also centralizes the efforts of the PR team, as it allows for managing their Brand Journal, creating and sending emails to the press, as well as organizing media contacts.

Allegro Magazine

Allegro Magazine

Allegro, the largest Polish e-commerce platform, employed the brand newsroom concept taking it a step further. The brand created its own medium – the Allegro Magazine. It is a news service covering all the latest from the world of shopping, technology, and lifestyle. Allegro, as a brand, actually takes the backseat here.

These types of activities, referred to as brand journalism, represent a style of writing about the brand akin to a journalistic narrative. All the social media channels of the brand are naturally integrated in the magazine, which also has a special VIP section, with access to exclusive materials for selected viewers and a special newsletter sign-up.

IKEA’s Newsroom

Startup Vicious Circle - Inside Prowly

We have been running Prowly app for more than one year. We launched our app in the end of 2013, so 2014 was the most important year for our business in Poland.

Prowly 1.0 launch was the beginning of a real battle (fight?) for the biggest clients in Poland and verifying our long-term plan for sales. 2014 was full of rises and falls for us.
