Breaking news is only one part of the news cycle. Journalists spend much time looking online for new or interesting takes on old stories. Lookatmedia™ online newsrooms make your newsworthy stories discoverable to a broader and more diverse group of journalists.

The last few years' seismic social and business shifts have forced organizations to take stock. As with all paradigm-changing times, the upheaval has also created opportunities for renewal. We've learned the value and cost of retaining control of the narrative. Those who have remained in control of their narrative have succeeded — those who have not, failed. Every public and privately owned and controlled organization should now understand they need to focus more on staying connected to those who determine their success.

Media groups have many arms; broadcast, print, digital and social to reach wider audiences. All of the channels demand visual content. Your Lookatmedia™ newsroom makes it practical to provide journalists with a choice of stories and supporting visual content to illustrate your stories.

Why do I need an online newsroom?

Free media operates 24/7, 365 days of the year. A travel journalist writing about 'the hottest destinations' needs information immediately and cannot wait overnight until your team is in the office. The same is true for any business or organization. Having your own self-service online newsroom is the best way to help those in the media gain access to the stories, images, video, audio and other brand assets, when and where they need them, to fuel content creation.

Why do journalists need your online newsroom?

Journalists need to create ten articles for different channels every day. Many no longer have access to photographers and production resources as they once did. Approved access to your images, video and brand assets will help today's journalists meet their content demands while allowing you to amplify your brand messages.

What's a Digital Asset Management solution?

As the name suggests, a Digital Asset Management solution is a solution to manage digital assets, like images, videos, audio and brand assets. Think of it as a stock image library, but all assets are yours. When you integrate a Digital Asset Management solution with an online newsroom, you create an environment where your team can create content and push it to media groups and journalists. Journalists can then use those assets to develop their content or search your library for just the right image or video to tell their story. 

What are the other uses for a Digital Asset Management solution?

Your Digital Asset Management solution will quickly become an essential, online, cloud-based productivity solution. It allows you to manage access to your assets, helping approved users to discover and repurpose existing assets for communication and engagement right across your organization. Your Digital Asset Management solution can play a crucial role in your communication and marketing strategies. It's how you can speed up and control the use of assets. It's also how you mitigate the risk of loss or incorrect use of digital assets. 


It's all about what journalists need Getty Images/iStockphoto

Your business website is uniquely unsuited to attracting more media coverage. So is the news page you have on your website. Journalists are professional communicators and sceptics. It’s if you have a specialised online newsroom solution like Lookatmedia™ to connect and build productive relationships with journalists and media representatives.
