Beltsville, MD (PRWEB) September 13, 2011
Vocus, Inc. (NASDAQ: VOCS), a leading provider of cloud-based marketing and PR software, today announced that it has signed MonaVie as a new customer. The health and wellness brand manufactures and markets products including healthy juices, weight management systems, and energy blends.
MonaVie will use Vocus’ extensive media database, news on demand software, social media monitoring and sentiment analysis, and advanced analytics with prominence and scoring, to develop and execute media outreach campaigns through traditional and social channels. Its reasons for using Vocus are twofold:
- Building a more robust PR presence. MonaVie cites media management capabilities, an extensive, up-to-date media database that allows it to directly target reporters, and the ability to link everything back together in a streamlined way, as main reasons to use Vocus.
- Bringing PR tools in-house, having previously relied on a PR agency. “We wanted to make sure we’re getting the maximum use out of our dollars,” says Michael Jensen, Senior Manager, Media Relations at MonaVie. “The ability to bring the PR tools in house and essentially have more control over our PR efforts is part of what attracted us to Vocus.”
“As we look to revamp our public relations efforts, Vocus has made it easier for us to track and analyze news as well as our online reputation, while building and managing relationships with key influencers,” says Jensen.
“Vocus’ software not only gives PR and marketing professionals easy-to-read access to content and coverage in social networks, blogs, news outlets, forums, etc., but it also provides the analysis needed to continue to improve the impact of their efforts,” says Kye Strance, Director of Product Management at Vocus. “Vocus is looking forward to developing a long-standing relationship with MonaVie by helping them improve their online reach and influence through social networks, online and through the media.”
