More Than One Billion Social Relationships Now Managed via the Vitrue SRMMilestone Signals Company Growth and Increasing Adoption and Importance of Social Media for Consumers and Brands (November 22, 2011)
ATLANTA, GA -- (Marketwire) -- 11/22/11 -- Vitrue (www.vitrue.com), the leading social relationship platform, today announced that the Vitrue SRM platform now manages more than one billion social relationships across Facebook, Twitter and Google+. Vitrue's SaaS platform solution helps global brands and agencies manage their social relationships with consumers as well as deploy social marketing campaigns and communications that easily achieve scale with the ability to deliver hyper-targeted content at regional and local levels. Vitrue officially crossed the 1 billion mark on Friday, November 18, and now manages more than 1,029,904,661 social relationships, reaching more social consumers each day.
"Brands have clearly adopted the power of connecting and engaging with consumers on social and increasingly those connections are coming across multiple social platforms, led by Facebook but also Twitter and now Google+," said Reggie Bradford, CEO and founder of Vitrue. "This milestone simply reinforces my belief in the power of social for consumers and brands alike. Marketers for almost every sized business will need to be using a social marketing platform, like our Vitrue SRM, to manage their increasingly expanding and sophisticated social communities through one centralized interface."
"As consumers are becoming increasingly connected through social and mobile networks, brands too must adopt new channels to reach and engage," said Brian Solis, principal analyst at Altimeter and author of the recently released The End of Business as Usual. "2010 and 2011 were clearly the years brands shifted notable focus and resources to social media. As social media becomes a way of life, brands will need to further invest in social platforms as a means of not only managing new communities, but fostering customer relationships as well."
The one-billionth milestone demonstrates the growth and importance of social channels for consumers and brands, as well as Vitrue's increased company momentum and continued innovation. The one billion represents Vitrue's clients' aggregated social relationships with their consumers (likes, followers, pluses) on Facebook, Twitter, and Google+. Consider some facts below:
