24-7 Press Release

Well suited for increasing digital presence for traditional and online businesses or brands. Can't think of any situation where smart use of 24-7 Press Release isn't relevant.

Vocus PR Suite

The Vocus PR Suite is well suited for public relations and communications professionals looking to research media outlets and contacts to target with news releases or company announcements, then be able to quickly send them out via a distribution through Vocus (versus having to spend a lot more time sending individual emails to each person.) It's not as well-suited if a PR or communications professional always needs to share their news and announcements with a small, specific group of media contacts - in which case, it would be much more cost effective to maintain their own media list via an internal document and then send announcements out individually by email.

  • The Vocus PR Suite has an extensive media outlet database so it allows public relations and communications professionals to find the right media outlets and contacts for any media market in the United States and for just about any specialty or trade news media.
  • The Vocus PR Suite is very user-friendly. It's easy to navigate and find what you need, plus offers a lot of options for how to organize your contacts and media lists.
  • The customer support team at Vocus is always very helpful and gets back to you quickly when you need assistance. Vocus also offers online/teleconference training classes plus a great help section within the portal that contains articles and "how to" videos.

Cons

  • More detailed reporting.
Teri Thompson profile photo
  • Some of the media contacts are occasionally not up to date. Sometimes we know of a media personality who has a left an organization months before and it hasn't been updated in Vocus yet.
  • If not used a lot, then the tracking can be cumbersome to remember how to pull graphs or charts.
  • Cost is very high for a small business.

Other than the press release distribution and email options, I was extremely satisfied with the platform's social media tools for brand management such as Facebook promotions, sweepstakes, social mentions and social monitoring.

Vocus PR Suite and Cision PR Software are very similar as Cision bought Vocus recently

  • It saves time by allowing us to quickly and easily search for the right media contacts and outlets to share news and information with, and it also saves times by allowing me to send those emails in mass through the system, rather than typing one out in an individual email for each person or outlet.
  • It allows us to be knowledgeable and savvy about the ever-changing media landscape
