Vocus Announces February Webinar Schedule

Webinars to empower attendees to create a stronger brand presence and navigate new media landscape

Vocus, Inc. (NASDAQ: VOCS), a leading provider of cloud-based marketing and public relations software, today announced two upcoming webinars in February. These instructional, hour-long sessions will show attendees how to make their brand stand out in a crowded marketplace and succeed in the evolving media landscape.

Marketers overwhelm prospects with blog posts, tweets and text-heavy emails every hour of the day. Creating brand associations with words has never been more difficult. Author and renowned branding strategist Laura Ries shows marketers how to wield a  visual hammer  that makes a brand stick in prospects  minds, like Nike s swoosh and Coca-Cola s signature bottle, during the Feb. 12  Brand With a Visual Hammer  webinar.

In 2013, newspapers chose iPhone pics over professional photos, reporters embraced social media in a new way, paywalls boosted revenues, and Jeff Bezos bought The Washington Post; all forever changing the public relations industry. On Thursday, Feb. 27, Arment Dietrich Chief Executive Officer Gini Dietrich will instruct attendees how to drive results using the latest public relations best practices and how the findings from Vocus   State of the Media 2014 Report  will impact the industry.

 Social media has led to the disruption of many industries, including branding and media relations, creating a difficult road for many marketing and public relations professionals to navigate,  said Vocus Chief Marketing Officer You Mon Tsang.  These webinars analyze the state of branding and the media industry in 2014, especially looking at how social media has evolved both. Attendees will learn today s best practices and how to utilize these traditional tactics to today s modern era.
