When it comes to monitoring today's top newspapers, one of the most efficient tools you can use is the Internet. Most of the top newspapers post online versions of their publications. In many cases, people prefer reading online newspapers rather than spending money or wasting paper. People prefer online news sources because they're easy to access, and they're constantly updated throughout the day.

If you run a business, or you're in charge of the marketing or public relations for an organization, you know how important it is to keep an eye on the daily press. It's essential to maintaining your reputation in the global community to know exactly what's being said about your company at all times. Anything less than the best media monitoring, and you may find yourself caught off guard in a public forum.

Beyond the News

The Internet has become the leading source for breaking news. Online news providers are often less accurate and less thorough in their reporting. The desire to "break" a story is sometimes more important than the need for accurate and fair reporting. If your company lands in the news, you need to respond quickly, or face the consequences. With all the technology available today, there's no excuse for missing a story online.

It's important to do more than just monitor traditional online press sites. Websites that allow consumers and advocacy groups to share opinions are invaluable tools for marketing and reputation management. These sites have a tremendous impact on consumer purchasing trends and loyalty. Keeping an eye on these sites is essential if you want to prevent a situation from turning into a crisis of epic proportions.
