Press Releases   •   Apr 08, 2015 18:18 SGT


“What is the best way to tell my story? Well, now you’re going to have to realize the best way to tell your story is not by just writing 500 words about it.” Robb Montgomery, the Founder of Smart Film School, has wise words for anyone looking to engage a younger user profile in the newsroom. Creating news content that is captivating, shareable and relevant to your user is becoming a real challenge: are you equipped to handle this change in the newsroom?

Why are news agencies finding it difficult to adapt to a mobile-first audience? When over 66% of Smartphone and tablet users get their news on their device, adapting to mobile content and the different needs of the user base has never been more important. It’s not just the headlines that matter; 11% of people who consume news on their Smartphones regularly, whilst 61% do so at least some of the time, indicating that having relevant content catered for a mobile audience can help keep them on your website.

Creating interesting content to engage and captivate mobile users is not easy. There are many new ways to report and share videos and other multimedia content that can be used to engage new viewers, but with these emerging mobile behaviors comes a need for innovative ways to tackle the challenge. Text-based articles that used to dominate digital news simply does not work anymore, and incorporating multimedia content into the content you create will help to keep news audiences engaged, interested and coming back for more.

At Digital Journalism World 2015, learn the industry secrets to understanding your mobile audience, creating a successful mobile newsroom, and producing a newsroom culture that emphasizes mobile journalism.
