RPRN To Power Online PR Initiative for Plug and Play Expo, October 1 and 29 2009
RushPRnews (RPRN), the online newswire and corporate communications company, has announced Plug and Play Tech Center of Silicon Valley as their Beta client for their inaugural Corporate Pressroom. RPRN is powering the public relations effort for PnP’s upcoming Fall 2009 Expo with the integrated distribution service, with a strong focus on creating buzz across online media outlets.
As was previously announced, CEO and Editor-in-Chief of RPRN has established a West Coast office in Plug and Play’s Silicon Valley center, having been invited by the Canadian Government to participate in the Canadian Technology Accelerator (CTA). Establishing its West Coast presence has allowed RPRN to further the company’s presence in the online and IT markets while undergoing a round of investor financing.
Now, in partnership with the Plug and Play Tech Center, RPRN has launched their white label corporate pressroom service. The RPRN Corporate Pressroom is a fully-integrated white label publishing platform that allows Plug and Play to take full advantage of RPRN’s traditional media distribution channel in conjunction with a one-click social media outreach.
“Plug and Play Tech Center with its increased presence in Silicon Valley and around the world has tremendous need for corporate news broadcasting. We believe that RushPRnews’ corporate pressroom will tremendously increase and facilitate their PR success,” says Anne Howard, CEO and Editor-in-chief of RushPRnews.
For the past year, RPRN has been working on launching a rebranded site that includes a custom online publishing platform. This new platform allows RPRN to offer two levels of service—an a-la-carte distribution service and a fully integrated corporate pressroom, a true white label service provided to RPRN corporate members, meeting all corporate communication needs big and small.
Founded in 2008 by CEO and Editor-in-Chief Anne Howard, RPRN is an online newswire with enhanced press and social media release distribution services. Since its launch it has published over 4,000 articles—both original content and corporate press releases—with scheduled growth when French and Spanish capabilities are introduced in October of 2009. It currently employs 6 with over 200 freelance journalists around the globe.
