Lanham, MD -- Vocus, Inc., (NASDAQ: VOCS) a leading provider of on-demand software for public relations management, today announced that Alcatraz Media, the world's largest provider of tours and activities, has selected Vocus' Small Business Edition (SBE) to promote its business. Using Vocus SBE, Alcatraz will be able to raise its visibility in search engines and drive traffic to its new website, Reserve123.com.
"We understand the value of news and have always impressed our vendors and potential customers and partners with that fact," said Ryan Windsor of Alcatraz Media. "Now with Vocus SBE, we are able to use our press releases as part of a broader marketing strategy to generate buzz and ultimately traffic."
Windsor continued, "While the product itself is great, Vocus' excellent service is the difference, I can call or email our designated customer service representative at any time and get a timely response to my questions. The level of customer service Vocus provides is extremely valuable and makes it easy for anyone to use the software, even if you are brand new to PR."
Alcatraz Media is the world's largest provider of tours and activities welcoming over a million visitors per month. Its newest addition, Reserve123.com, provides one-stop shopping to research and reserve activities and transportation services. Promoting the new brand to the public posed a challenge for Alcatraz Media. While selling tours and activities in hundreds of destinations around the world through a network of thousands of sites, it has always been a challenge for Alcatraz Media to keep the public informed about all of the changes and additions to its offerings on a regular basis.
"Vocus SBE provides me with an additional tool to create traffic and generate awareness of my brand," concluded Windsor.
