I like waking up in the morning and seeing Kitchen Tune-Up in Google Alerts and Yahoo! News – especially since I see these results within a few hours
Lanham, MD (PRWEB) September 27, 2010
PRWeb, the online news distribution service of Vocus (NASDAQ: VOCS), announced today the publication of a new case study on Kitchen Tune-Up, a kitchen and bath improvement service. Rather than completely redo an entire kitchen from head to toe, Kitchen Tune-Up provides an easier, and more cost-effective, alternative: resurfacing cabinets to modernize and refresh their look for a fraction of the cost.
Kitchen Tune-Up has tapped PRWeb for the past few months to drive Web traffic and generate buzz for its business. The case study details how Kitchen Tune-Up PR specialist, Jill Hansen took a creative approach with online news releases – using themes from lists of tips to charity works to franchisee recognition – in order to develop compelling content and boost her company’s visibility.
The results the company experience exceeded its expectations: from nothing to being featured in local broadcast television news, radio and major daily newspapers like the San Antonio Express-News (along with six other papers in Texas). In one case, Kitchen Tune-Up was featured in Military Edge magazine after modeling a program to give 10 free franchises to honorably discharged veterans.
“I like waking up in the morning and seeing Kitchen Tune-Up in Google Alerts and Yahoo! News – especially since I see these results within a few hours,” said Hansen. “I have a thick binder filled with print-outs of places we have appeared on the Web.”
“Compelling content and consistent publication are usually the two top themes we hear from customers that find the most success,” said Jiyan Wei, director of Product Management for PRWeb. “With some creative talent, and a little effort, Kitchen Tune-Up has been able to drive impressive results and useful lessons for the rest of the PRWeb community.”
