Universal Information Services is in the business of Empowering the PR Professional. This case study illuminates the challenges Boys Town addresses through the use of news monitoring and PR measurement services.
Our challenge is coordinating and monitoring media coverage that we receive at our 11 sites around the country. We do not have PR professionals at those locations to monitor what is in the news nor keep track of the impact.
With the help of Universal, Boys Town is able to categorize the coverage and its impact on the communities we serve. The results are delivered to us in a timely and sensible manner that lets us report our measurements to the Executive team and the Board of Directors.
We are able to show the impact of media coverage on our awareness campaigns and also measure our successes.
The nice thing about Universal is being able to tailor our reports to the needs we have. As our organization changes, Universal has been able to reorganize the data in order to make it more effectively measure our success.
We have just implemented the live news headlines widget on our website and have gotten great response, so we appreciate the new ideas that Universal brings to us.
