Vocus saves so much time. We can now devote time to making sure our different marketing channels are functioning together, supporting one another and mutually beneficial.

Beltsville, MD (PRWEB) April 10, 2013

Vocus, Inc. (NASDAQ: VOCS), a leading provider of cloud marketing, released a case study illustrating the power of its integrated Marketing Suite. Pedersen Worldwide, the parent company of two international clothing and accessory retailers, reported a 300 percent sales increase since implementing Vocus marketing software.

“Since we have had the Vocus Marketing Suite, our online retail sales have increased by 300 percent,” said Pedersen Worldwide’s Associate Vice President of Communications, Scott Brady. “A lot of that is thanks to the efficiency we’ve gained from the Vocus Marketing Suite; its email campaigns and the other tools.”

Prior to subscribing to Vocus, Pedersen Worldwide used online news releases, maintained its social media presence, and had two email lists totaling nearly 100,000 subscribers. The Pedersen Worldwide team had the right tools, but fell short of their potential due to the fragmentation of their platforms.

Once Pedersen Worldwide started using the integrated tools of the Vocus Marketing Suite, both of the company’s brands, Del Sol (color-changing clothing and nail polish) and Cariloha (bamboo clothing and accessories) more than doubled their sales.

“Just having everything under one roof makes it so much easier,” said Brady. “Vocus saves so much time. We can now devote time to making sure our different marketing channels are functioning together, supporting one another and mutually beneficial.”
