The Ultimate Guide to Earned Media

Become a brand worth talking about

Earned media (also known as free media) is the content that your brand earned, but which isn’t paid for such as shares, reposts, word of mouth, reviews, or recommendations.  An earned media marketing strategy consists of methods such as social bookmarking, republishing, backlink activities and guest posting.

Why is Earned Media Marketing Important for Your Business?

Since a word of mouth or a third party (business or individual) recommendation would appear to be more believable for your audience, an effective earned media marketing strategy can be more beneficial than your paid media or owned media efforts. Earned media marketing will:

  • Increase brand awareness
  • Improve brand credibility
  • Increase brand loyalty (through brand advocates)
  • Improve SEO rankings and traffic over time

This comprehensive guide covers the difference between paid, owned, and earned media, understanding the change in earned media marketing and other essential concepts for a successful earned media marketing strategy.
