I am happy to report that with many process improvements and various PR platform testing, the results for seoplus+ Digital PR clients nearly doubled in 2023. Here is how we achieved these results. 

2023 PR Placements


  • Increase contribution rates for relevant opportunities and increase in-progress coordination for opportunities and results. 
  • Create enhanced excitement around wins with clients and with the company.  
  • Incorporate a sustainable project management process to track opportunities seamlessly and coordinate among the team and various parties. 
  • Leverage existing contacts in our media network to build multiple stories and continue to showcase our clients as thought leaders in their industries. 


  • Invest a lot of team labour into building out a space, training, feedback and updating with new customizations and automation. 
  • Creating a scalable approach to submitting queries and determining when clients have hit their chief objective for the month with more success. 
  • Lacking excitement around results, we needed to redefine our terminology to continue to showcase ourselves as public relations industry professionals. 


  • Invested over 60 hours in building a custom Digital PR Space 
  • Revamped our onboarding process with the addition of a discovery stage. Allowing the team and client to understand their objectives, goals, and tone at the beginning of the campaign. This allowed the team to understand their positioning better and ensure their Qwoted profile was as close to 100% completion as possible. 
  • The team spends over 10 hours/week scanning the Qwoted & ‘Help A Reporter’ HARO (now known as Connectively) to find the most relevant pitches that would lead to the most successful inclusion rate
