Vocus Announces May Webinar Schedule

Webinars feature industry leaders Mark Schaefer and Chris Brogan

Vocus, Inc. (NASDAQ: VOCS), a leading provider of cloud-based marketing and public relations software, today announced two upcoming webinars in May. These instructional, hour-long sessions will teach attendees how to make their content marketing stand out in an overcrowded marketplace, as well as how to embrace a brand s inner freak to get marketing gold with two top industry experts and best-selling authors, Mark Schaeferand Chris Brogan.

In the modern marketing era, brands are churning out too much content and fighting for too little consumer attention. Soon, that ratio will short-circuit a brand s marketing program unless they have prepared for content shock. Adjust to a changing marketing and PR landscape before it s too late by joining acclaimed marketer and best-selling author of four books, including  The Tao of Twitter,  Mark Schaefer at his Vocus webinar, Block Content Shock, on Wednesday, May 7, 2014 at 2:00 p.m. EST.

What s a brand to do if it s not achieving desired results? Find the freak factor that separates it from the competition. Join world-renowned marketer and author Chris Brogan for a Vocus webinar, Marketing Freaks Shall Inherit the Earth, on Wednesday, May 21, 2014 at 2:00 p.m. EST to learn how to ditch transaction-minded messaging. Develop a freak-level passion for community that instills a sense of belonging, drives referrals, and increases customer lifetime value.

All Vocus webinars are free and open to the public. They start at 2:00 p.m. EST unless otherwise noted. Register for each webinar by clicking the links above. On-demand replays of these webinars are available to registered attendees. An archive of recent webinars is located at http://www.vocus.com/resources/webinars-events.
