Does digital media help or hurt your investor relations strategy?
This post is part of our ‘Do you need digital media?’ series – an exploration of how digital media can help you meet your organization’s goals.
It’s no secret that investor relations (IR) can be extremely tricky to navigate. Cultivating a positive opinion of your company in investors’ eyes isn’t an easy task. So what tools do IR specialists use to achieve this feat? While many different techniques play a role in managing investors’ expectations, digital media has become highly influential.
LinkedIn and Greenwich Associates state, “Nearly all Institutional Investors use digital media sources for their roles (97%).”
They add that 31% of investors use social media to “make an investment recommendation or decision.”
In fact, a single tweet can sometimes cause huge waves in investor relations. For example, Visual Capitalist reports that, “The stock price of Tesla Motors skyrocketed 3% on Elon Musk’s tweet to his 1.8 million followers that a ‘major new product line’ would be unveiled.”
