3BL Media

They have over 250K email subscribers and 350K social media followers. The great thing about that group is that it is a curated group of folks who are specifically interested in the intersection of business and sustainability. The events they put on are excellent and well attended so do recommend considering sponsorship.

Vocus PR Suite

It is great for highly targeted, unique audience PR/comm. It is also great for strategic communications to a broader audience, when your company is seeking such a strategy. Overall, it’s a bit pricey and has us considering other options.

  • Expensive! We suggest lowering the price, and layering value-added features from there. We just don’t need full capabilities every time.

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.

We had been using Vocus then they were acquired so we stayed on. There are other options we have been looking at since then.

Return on Investment

  • A lot of staff time saved on PR which is not our expertise.

  • When it was just Vocus the ROI was always positive because it was so easy to use and met our specific needs.
  • Post acquisition, it seems overpriced for how we use it.
