Atlanta, GA (PRWEB) November 29, 2010
Vitrue, the leading provider of social media publishing software, announced today that geotargeting is now available in Vitrue Publisher, the company’s Facebook publishing software, part of the industry-leading Vitrue Social Relationship Management (SRM) platform. This will allow Vitrue Publisher users to hyper-target and personalize their marketing messages by locations like country, state/providence and city, as well as language.
“Geotargeting gives Facebook marketers a tremendous tool to truly personalize and segment content to their many different audiences – delivering highly targeted messages,” said Reggie Bradford, CEO of Vitrue. “Facebook continues to be an incredible vehicle for marketers and this new enhancement gives an even more powerful, personalization tool to reach their customers.

According to many industry reports, geotargeting has been a highly requested functionality from brands. Additionally, numerous surveys have noted that marketers plan to increase their social media spends for 2011, including a recent MediaPost survey showing almost 70 percent of the marketers polled plan to increase their social budgets during the next five years. Vitrue believes that geotargeting is an important tool that will help continue to propel Facebook activity through 2011.
Geotargeting will also play a vital role for global brands as almost 70 percent of Facebook’s audience is outside the United States. Location and language segmentation can greatly assist global brands as they communicate with many different audiences nationally and internationally, allowing them to deliver specific content by country, city and language to accurately target and message audiences worldwide.
“This enhancement gives our clients a unique segmentation content tool that we believe will strike a chord with brands, both nationally and globally,” said Bradford. “A client like McDonalds can message fans in specific cities and localize the content where certain menu items or specials are running without hitting their entire fan base. Or MTV can tell Shakira’s Spanish-speaking fans about an exclusive event for them in a certain city. Global brands can really utilize segmentation by country, city and language. Brands can literally hyper-personalize their messaging, and we know that garners a much higher ROI.”
