You want to create the most relevant, useful and original journalism? Hearken helps open up the reporting processes to get valuable feedback pre-publication. You have limited time and resources, your audience has limited attention. Make the right decisions.
What does Hearken do?
Hearken is a company that helps organizations listen better to those they serve and create reciprocal relationships. We train people on our Public-Powered Methodology and Engagement Management System along with custom consulting and capacity-building for organizations looking to operationalize engagement.
Public-powered journalism is a unique methodology that Hearken pioneered. This process involves the public from pitch to publication and enables newsrooms to create more representative, relevant and original content. We’ve helped more than 150 newsrooms around the world adopt this model.
Hearken’s proprietary technology platform is called the Engagement Management System. It helps newsrooms generate actionable insights from the public to create more relevant, representative and original content. It helps editorial staff keep engagement organized, and helps revenue-focused staff generate qualified email leads and connect to newsletters and CRMs.
