The Marketing Suite helps with time management. Instead of doing things piecemeal, it's all at your fingertips.

Beltsville, MD (PRWEB) May 14, 2013

Vocus, Inc. (NASDAQ: VOCS), a leading marketing cloud provider, released a case study illustrating the marketing success Herr Foods enjoys with the help of the Vocus Marketing Suite.

Herr Foods has expanded beyond the North Atlantic region in the United States to the Midwest and South. As the company expanded and its fan base grew, the marketing team needed to expand its marketing footprint with the same amount of human resources.

“The Marketing Suite helps with time management,” said Hans Thomas, Community Marketing Specialist for Herr Foods. “Instead of doing things piecemeal, it’s all at your fingertips.”

In one case, Vocus’ custom Facebook apps delivered a new fan base with their audience growing from 10,000 to 48,000 people. Prior to Vocus, Herrs worked with an outside agency to create sweepstakes because they lacked the knowhow. Now, the company gets and retains thousands of “Likes” by themselves for a fraction of the cost and time.

“As important as the ‘Likes’ are, the data the Marketing Suite delivers (such as demographics, referrers and post impression rates) makes a great difference,” said Han. “It helps us track trends and relevant topics. This technology allows us to post more relevant information and connect with our followers.”
