Capitola, CA (PRWEB) March 29, 2004
Fisher Vista, a marketing services firm, announced today an unprecedented 100 percent customer growth rate over the last year for its flagship HR MarketerÂ service (http://www.HRmarketer.com). Owned and operated by Fisher Vista, the web-based marketing and PR service is now used by several hundred human resource service providers and PR agencies, including recruitment and staffing firms, employee benefit providers, training and development firms, consultants, outsourcers, and others.
HR MarketerÂs growth signals a shift in how HR vendors and PR agencies use marketing resources to streamline their marketing initiatives.
ÂHR vendors and PR agencies are increasingly turning to this one-stop marketing and PR service in favor of more costly outsourced services or internal staff additions,Â said Mark Willaman, president and founder of Fisher Vista. "HR Marketer is fast becoming a Âmust-haveÂ marketing and PR tool for companies in the human capital industry. ItÂs a timely and cost-effective strategic solution that more and more companies are discovering."
A key attraction for customers is the ability to send unlimited news releases directly to journalists who cover the human capital and workforce space, and have these releases directly posted to major Internet search engines and news portals like Google and Yahoo!
Far from being solely a media distribution service, HR Marketer provides a dizzying array of information for human resources marketing executives, ranging from planning and execution to campaign management.
HR Marketer tracks and centrally maintains information on hundreds of human resources conferences, trade shows, associations, award competitions, analysts, buyer guides, and publications Â a workload that otherwise would require the addition of one or two full-time staff positions. Customers can monitor workforce and human resources journalists, editorial calendars and speaking opportunities, plus advertising and promotional information.
HR Marketer clients may also leverage the expertise of a media relations team that provides consulting services such as press release review and feedback on communication plans, story pitch ideas and internal messaging. Additionally, workforce journalists are connected with HR Marketer clients through a free media query service called HR Source Net (http://www.hrsourcenet.com).
"HR Marketer has been an integral part of the services that we provide to our clients," said Ed Emerman, president and founder of Eagle Public Relations, Inc., a Princeton-NJ-based agency that specializes in the human resources and employee benefits industry. "Their services have strengthened our ability to stay on top of a wide range of marketing and media relations opportunities in the HR industry."
