Demetrios Skalkotos, SVP for Global Corporation Solutions of NASDAQ OMX [NASDAQ:NDAQ], the world’s largest exchange company, sits down with guest host Mark Story (@mstory123), Director of New Media at the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission to discuss their new Do-It-Yourself (DIY) Platform, designed to make press release and regulation FD compliance self service for investor relations and public relations professionals.
NASDAQ’s new DIY platform offers video, social media management and press release distributionon a single platform. According to Skalkotos, self-service content distribution tools have been more prevalent in Europe.
NASDAQ introduces the tool in the U.S. market with a one-button option to wrap press materials with information that satisfies SEC disclosure regulations.
The system puts NASDAQ’s GlobeNewswire distribution network more directly into the hands of public relations professionals. With enhanced search engine optimization capabilities and audience targeting options, DIY further distinguishes itself as a lower cost solution for traditional press release distribution.
Skalkotos also discusses NASDAQ’s Social Stream, a video release service that aggregates a company’s social media content into single site to simplify the task of reviewing a company’s public profile.
