Beltsville, MD (PRWEB) May 02, 2012
Vocus, Inc. (NASDAQ: VOCS), a leading provider of cloud marketing software, has released significant enhancements to its online news release distribution service, PRWeb. The update offers 200 new local distribution partners, distribution to the Internet’s top financial websites and new social sharing features.
To improve local distribution of news releases, PRWeb has partnered with leading media organizations including Hearst Media to add 200 local media sites to its distribution network. Businesses can now distribute their news to the readers of influential local sites including the San Francisco Chronicle (12m unique monthly visitors) and the Houston Chronicle (7.5m unique monthly visitors).
The release also includes distribution to the Internet’s leading financial websites including Bloomberg, MarketWatch, WSJ Digital, MSN Money, Yahoo! Finance, Reuters, Morningstar, CNN Money, Barron’s and SmartMoney. With the ability to distribute news to these key financial outlets, customers who need to reach a financial audience will achieve maximum exposure.
New social sharing features will help businesses harness the reach of the most popular online platforms. Businesses can showcase their Twitter, Facebook and LinkedIn profiles in news releases to build their networks. An expansion of the TweetIt feature lets businesses amplify their news by publishing it to Facebook and LinkedIn. Meanwhile, more prominent sharing buttons (Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn and Google+) encourage readers to share businesses’ stories with their own networks.
“PRWeb has become the most popular news release service for online visibility,” says You Mon Tsang, Senior Vice President of Products at Vocus. “These new enhancements make PRWeb the most social of all the major services and give businesses access to even more local and financial Web properties to reach their customers.”
