FAQ for Brands and PR Agencies
Our company has its own PR team. Why should I use your platform?
The webportalis platforms offer a tool for PR teams and PR agencies to increase media coverage and brand exposure. Our focus is on providing a suitable database addressing editors' research needs. With 24/7 access, press material storage and PR contact listing, the platforms facilitate the most ideal format that continues to connect the press with your team in a variety of ways.
As an essential database, we receive daily subscriptions to the service from new, developing and existing members of the press that you may be unaware of.
How do I decide who can see my press material?
Based on your PR strategy and needs, all or selected media can be given access and targeted by type, region, event, country etc. Public links as well as the press room itself can be linked from your homepage, depending on how open and available you want your press material to be. Confidentiality is established through individual brands having limited access to only their press room and materials. Only verified editors have access to our platform.
How do I create a page on your platform?
Your personal Content Manager sends you a checklist, showing you what they need, such as high-resolution images, press release, PR contact details etc. They prepare and modify your page for your final approval before information is wide out ot the media. (See: how to get started)
Can I still modify my page once it's online, like update price information or add/delete products?
From the beginning, we offer various options like additional updates for your pages. You can book an additional update anytime. Small changes, i.e. price information updates, are included in our service.
How fast is press material uploaded and a newswire sent?
This takes very little time, usually one working day. For extensive changes we need up to 5 days.
How do I track the success of my press room and releases?
Our statistics function provides you with an overview of the number of editors accessing your material, downloads and pageviews.
We also offer a comprehensive search of the web with daily alerts and monthly reports.
How do I participate in the Topic of the Week?
Our Topic of the Weeks are popular with editors and frequently used as an inspiration for editorial pieces. We regularly let you know about the upcoming topics. Should one of your products match a specific topic, please let us know – we will be happy to consider your product. We can also include products that are not yet on the platform. For all existing clients and products, this service is free of charge.
How do I learn about upcoming events?
The latest event listings can be found on the site. We also inform you by e-mail regularly about these. Should you be interested in participating at one of our events, please let us know as soon as possible. We keep events relatively small and intimate to allow for plenty of one-to-one's with the press. Due to this, events fill up quickly, so please contact us to secure your spot.
We are planning to launch our products in other countries too. How can your network help me with that?
Our platforms are available in 9 countries, including the US, Canada, UK, Germany, Austria, Switzerland, France, Belgium and Luxembourg, each facilitating digital press room set-ups and events. We also provide translation services and local markets knowledge in each of these areas.
