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

Vocus is very well suited for PR companies, marketing agencies and professionals who will use the database and distribution software at least a few times a month. Larger companies will absorb the cost quickly, but smaller companies will have a harder time justifying the cost.

Pros

  • Increases search engine optimization.
  • Builds awareness.
  • Bumps up social media engagement.
  • Vocus has an extensive media contact database. It would be nearly impossible for a small organization to keep up on all the current media contacts.
  • Vocus helps us distribute press releases and media advisories in a quick and efficient manner and tracks what and when we distributed documents so that everyone in the company can see and keep track of the log.
  • Tracking media hits is a benefit to us and our clients to get easy reporting and graphs to share with clients.

Cons

  • More detailed reporting.
  • Vocus could do a better job of keeping all media contacts in its database up to date. It is difficult because in today's media landscape, turnover is high BUT having the right names and contact information is critical for the public relations and communications professionals who use the software.
  • Vocus could start offering lower cost package options for smaller companies or agencies. Right now, the cost of subscriptions is at a level that smaller organizations likely can't afford it but don't necessary need all the features that larger, enterprise companies will utilize and are willing and able to pay for.

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.

Alternatives Considered

Affordable. Easy to use. Effective.
Vocus PR Suite and Cision PR Software are very similar as Cision bought Vocus recently

Return on Investment

  • Positive awareness building on a global scale.
  • Increased attendance to a benefit for a university.
  • Built awareness for a non-profit event for teens at risk.
  • 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
