PRWeb has great distribution, provides a lot of flexibility for optimizing our content for search, and has a strong tie-in with social media
Lanham, MD (PRWEB) July 21, 2010
PRWeb, the online news distribution service of Vocus (NASDAQ: VOCS), announced today the publication of a new case study on Insider Perks, the first website to focus on professionally produced travel videos. The case study details how CEO Brian Searl, a former broadcast editor with the CBS affiliate in Cleveland, has mapped out an online marketing strategy combining social media and PRWeb’s online news releases.
“PRWeb has great distribution, provides a lot of flexibility for optimizing our content for search, and has a strong tie-in with social media,” said Searl in the case study. “But the online news release is the start – and we tap our social networks to take it one step further.”
Insider Perks has experimented with a range of platforms and multimedia options in combination with PRWeb. For example, Searl notes multimedia, especially video has greatly improved reader interactions with his online news releases – which he saw grow five-fold when he integrated an online video in one release.
“New research shows that people spend more time with on news releases with multimedia,” said Jiyan Wei, director of Product Management with PRWeb. “Releases that contained multimedia kept readers engaged on average, for about 30 seconds longer than those releases without it.”
