Has anything really changed in newsrooms after protests?

NENPA U: Using Data to Inform and Improve Your Journalism
Oct 23 @ 2:00 pm – 3:00 pm
NENPA U: Using Data to Inform and Improve Your Journalism

Presented by NENPA University and Online Media Campus. Free to NENPA and America’s Newspapers members, $35 for non-members. Email for the free registration code.

In this webinar:
All publishers want to become indispensable to their audiences. They want to know what drives engagement and subscriptions, how to make their work part of a reader’s daily habit and how deeply to cover topics that matter. Those questions are not easily answered with conventional web analytics that were never intended for journalists. What people click on, spend time with, subscribe to and share can reveal why they rely on a publisher for their news and information. But data overload can become overwhelming, even paralyzing to decision making.

With insights from the American Press Institute’s Metrics for News software and services, we will discuss which measures of engagement to focus on (hint: not just pageviews) and how to define success. Through a series of 11 lessons on using metrics for newsroom change (gathered from our work with 100+ newsroom partners), participants will learn how to prioritize which metrics to track and tips for leveraging the data-collection tool(s) they already use.
