According to recent surveys, TEKGROUP’s 2016 Online Newsroom Survey Report and THENEWSMARKET’s survey high and low resolution photos and logos are two of the most important features in your online newsroom.
Product photos, head shots of executives and thought leaders, facility and building shots are all coveted by journalists and bloggers looking for just the right photo to include with their news story. Having them posted and ready to use alleviates the need for journalists to reach out to someone in the PR department and wait for them to email the file over. This saves much needed time for a writer on deadline! They also request various shapes, sizes, and colors of your logo, including black and white.
Below are 3 best in class examples of how companies are utilizing image galleries in their online newsroom.
