"This white paper demonstrates Calysto’s leadership in the content PR sector and how our business is transforming the traditional PR function into a far more effective and measurable approach for our clients."

ATLANTA--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Calysto Communications, a global social and traditional public relations (PR) firm specializing in communications technologies, announced today a new white paper in partnership with Business Wire that explores the cutting-edge concept of content PR.

The report, The Rise of Content PR, provides an in-depth examination of the content PR strategy, which includes the development of original content that appeals to journalists and consumers as well as strategic delivery methods that provide measurable data based on defined objectives.

The concept behind content PR is the development and distribution of creative and relevant content that progressively tells a story about an organization. Content PR leverages traditional PR media channels but also expands content distribution to encompass bloggers, social channels, video outlets, live events and more.

“Content PR will maximize visibility and improve ROI by telling a company’s story more completely and effectively,” says Laura Borgstede, CEO of Calysto Communications. “This white paper demonstrates Calysto’s leadership in the content PR sector and how our business is transforming the traditional PR function into a far more effective and measurable approach for our clients.”

Borgstede is one of the primary sources cited in the report, along with Tom Becktold, senior vice president of marketing for Business Wire. The report also includes Joe Pulizzi, founder of the Content Marketing Institute and one of the pioneers of the content marketing concept, as a key source. In the publication, Pulizzi refers to the practice of content PR as “the new PR.”

The report is available for download at http://bizwire.pr/Content-PR.

In conjunction with the release of the report, Calysto today also unveiled its new blog on content PR. The blog is designed to help companies successfully leverage content PR to raise their visibility and to build strong relationships with multiple target audiences, including media, customers, partners and investors.
