NEW YORK, Oct. 30, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Worldnow, the leading online technology, content and revenue-solutions company for local media, announced today that it is expanding its professional services to include Social Media consultative services. The company earlier this year announced it hired a Director of Social Media and a partnership with a leading aggregator of social media data.
"This is a very exciting day for Worldnow. The high level of expertise that we offer along with in depth data aggregation, gives us a unique advantage in the local TV industry. Social has become critical for national programming and correlation is quickly becoming causation. Our niche is the ability to combine 15+ years of servicing local TV Newsrooms with our expert knowledge of social media, backed by powerful data.", said Gloria Cid, VP of Marketing, Communications & Social Media, Worldnow.
This new division will offer customized reporting based on a clients particular needs. There are two basic levels of reporting. The first is the Social Media Intelligence Report which gives a client a scorecard of their social performance on critical platforms such as Facebook and Twitter compared to a list of competitors of their choosing. This analysis looks at top performing content on those platforms and is followed up with key insights and recommendations to improve performance.
The next level of reporting is our Social Newsroom Planner. This reporting positions social chatter as a newsrooms modern day, police scanner, wire service and beat reporter all in one!. Our team will deliver daily reports giving stations the top 5 most highly engaged content in their market the last 24 hrs. Real information in real time. This is also supported by in depth monthly analytics and review of critical KPI's for that market. As with the Social Media Intelligence report, the client can choose the competitors they wish to be measured against. Unlike other social metrics providers this is more than dashboard reporting. We are combing the art of social media with the science (data) to back it up. Worldnow has the unique ability to customize reports to fit the needs of clients and help them address whatever issue they are trying to solve for.
