Vocus Announces January Webinar Schedule

Webinars encourage attendees to evolve the marketing mix with native advertising and new trends in mobile campaigns

Vocus, Inc. (NASDAQ: VOCS), a leading provider of cloud-based marketing and public relations software and consulting services, announced two upcoming webinars in January. These instructional, hour-long sessions will show marketers how to go beyond standard tactics and utilize native advertising and mobile apps to reach their goals in 2014.

Marketing and public relations professionals are wrestling with native advertising. How can companies and nonprofits best use sponsored content within their existing content mix to build brand and trust? Edelman Chief Content Strategist and Ad Age columnist Steve Rubel will clarify the role of sponsored content during the Jan. 8 webinar.

From low-energy Bluetooth beacons to Google Glass, 2014 will change  There s an app for that  to  There s an app for everything.  On Jan. 22, webinar attendees will journey into the changing world of mobile with Savvy Apps Founder and Chief Executive Officer Ken Yarmosh and learn how to nurture prospects and future customers better with apps designed for emerging technologies.

 Marketing is continually evolving and the onset of native advertising and new technologies in mobile campaigns are powerful examples of that,  said Vocus Chief Marketing and Product Officer You Mon Tsang.  In a noisy marketplace, these webinars will enable marketers to use these tactics to more strategically reach audiences in 2014.
