How great is this?  On Monday, at the Eighth Annual American Business Awards (aka “Stevies”), Dow Jones Media Relations Manager received a People’s Choice Award for Favorite New Media Product of the Year.  This is the second year now that the American Business Awards invited the public to vote for their favorite new products.  During the voting period, from May 13 to June 4, over 150,000 votes were cast for the People’s Choice Awards.

Product Team (L to R): Martin Murtland, Saurabh Goorha, and Priya Nallan

I headed up PR for Dow Jones’s Factiva and Dow Jones Newswires business lines when our product team began working on Dow Jones Media Relations Manager. My team played a big role in the development of this product, providing ideas and feedback along the way. I’m really proud of the result of that collaboration, and I love some of the features that have resulted. For example, the link between journalist and blogger profiles and the articles and posts they’ve written makes it so much easier to determine who to pitch, because you know whether they’ve written about the topic. Also, the briefing book feature is amazing. It used to take us hours to put these together, but now we can get a very presentable document in just a few minutes.

Dow Jones Media Relations Manager was also named a Finalist in the ABA’s New Product or Service of the Year – Media & Entertainment category.

We’re extremely proud of this achievement and thank everyone who voted for us.
