Augure brings together all activities and follow-ups to optimise organisation of your public relations

Of course, public relations activity is based on communications sent to journalists, and is measured largely by press coverage obtained as a result. But in reality, it goes far beyond that.

Articles and/or reporting are one of the indicators of PR performance, of course, but while some are directly linked to a specific PR communications activity, others are more general and less immediate, and usually emerge from a set of communications with a journalist (sending information, telephone calls and/or email exchanges, interviews, etc.).

To showcase and highlight PR activity for your company or client, it is important to take into account all the different activities you have undertaken in relation to journalists.
This means that while the dissemination of a PR campaign should be highlighted and taken into account, all relationships and communications must be organised, tracked and analysed.

Designed for press officers and optimised with their support over many years, the Augure solution combines all the necessary tools for full and effective PR management. Key PR activities that require rigorous tracking include the following in particular:

  • outgoing communications (press campaigns): subject category (corporate communications, product, performance, expertise, etc.), type (press release, press pack, newsletter, event invitation, etc.), mailing title, available visuals, production date, communication date (initial, then follow-up if applicable), questions, reminders (including responses and comments), dedicated articles, etc.
  • any email exchange with a journalist, even if it takes place individually, without dispatch via the software, can also be included in the software (specific meeting proposal, discussion following an article, information sent as part of editorial planning, etc.)
  • press requests: context (following receipt of a press release, topical issue, in conjunction with a previous meeting, etc.), subject matter (specific press release, product, expertise, corporation information, etc.), object (visual, additional information, product test, interview, etc.), date and mode (email/telephone) of request, date of response, content of response (documents sent, which interview set up when, etc.), status (pending/ongoing/completed), prospects (article planned on which date, contact at a later date, etc.)
  • interviews/meetings with journalists: source of request (incoming or outgoing), type of exchange (individual or group, telephone interview, in-person meeting, etc.), context (following receipt of a news item, editorial on a topical issue requiring expertise and/or presentation specific to the company or its products, etc.), issues covered, questions asked, takeaways (sending visuals, providing specific details, additional interview to be planned, etc.), media prospects (article planned for specific date, anticipating a specific news item, to remind later, etc.)
  • client relations (agency): calls and meetings (dates, participants, subject matter, etc.), sending summaries and press reviews, topical and upcoming issues, etc.

Augure brings together all key PR activities in one piece of software. This makes the press officer’s work much simpler, boosting their efficiency and productivity thanks to an organisational and tracking tool tailored to their work with a range of players.

Effective PR tracking for individual PR campaigns or overall approaches – designed to suit you

The type of tracking and analytics best suited to each PR activity usually depends on its nature and subject matter.
Although some very specific operations are particularly well suited to activity-specific analysis, other more general activities require an intersectional approach.

Aside from the type and subject matter of the activities performed, a special analysis may also be required based on current requirements and specific objectives. For instance, an analysis based on activities but also specific to a category of journalist may be crucial in the context of forthcoming financial information or regional news.

Augure’s diverse set of criteria and versatility enable both approaches. You can work on any level of specificity – from the overall vision for a campaign to precise tracking of a particular activity, depending on your requirement.

For big press campaigns combining several sub-categories of activities, it’s quite common to share the work between different team members. That requires even more coordination in organisation and tracking. Each member should be able to make efficient progress on their part, while data must remain centralised in order to ensure consistency. This ability to view global progress helps boost team efficiency thanks to a project-based management approach.

Augure makes group work much easier by simplifying coordination and sharing of each activity between team members. At any time, they can visualise and assemble all data with ease to get an overview of a PR campaign as a whole.

Combining its made-to-measure approach with tech expertise, Augure allows users to track and analyse all PR activities, globally or on a case-by-case basis, based on their needs.
