SocialWhirled Bucks the "Template," Introduces the SocialWhirled Canvas Collection; A Suite of Tools That Puts Brands in Full Creative Control

Canvases Connect Social, Mobile and Digital Campaigns; Boost Marketing ROI

PHOENIX, AZ -- (Marketwired) -- 04/01/14 -- SocialWhirled today introduces the SocialWhirled Canvas Collection, a new suite of tools built on the 2014 CODiE award-winning marketing and advertising campaign platform. Powerful yet easy-to-use, Canvases streamline and simplify campaign creation and management across the social, mobile and digital landscapes, freeing brands from creative limitations while improving efficiency and effectiveness.

After listening to CMOs, chief digital officers and brand managers of companies and agencies, SocialWhirled heard loud and clear that they need ways to uniquely market their brands and differentiate from other brands without being stuffed into traditional templates. To answer this need, SocialWhirled came up with the SocialWhirled Canvas Collection to streamline campaign development and provide unlimited flexibility and creativity beyond typical template limitations.

Case in point comes from Phoenix-based Local Motors, open-source hardware innovator and pioneer of co-creation and micro-manufacturing in the design and development of game changing vehicles. In preparing for promotions to support Arizona Bike Week, Local Motors was looking for a tool to help coordinate consistent campaigns across its various social, mobile and digital sites simultaneously. "We wanted to be able to reach a dispersed audience with a personalized, consistent message across social media, mobile sites and digitally," said Amy Romano, director of strategic communications & public relations for Local Motors. "We are excited to be among the first to use the SocialWhirled Canvas Collection to control the look, feel and messaging of our entire campaign from a single dashboard, and hope to amplify our reach and avoid ending up with silo'd efforts."

"Local Motors understands digital marketing and is one of the more innovative start-ups we've met, as evidenced by the strong partnerships it has created with brands such as GE, BMW and the U. S. Army," said Andy Lombard, SocialWhirled CEO. "We're elated to work with Local Motors and support its efforts to tie together campaigns for complete, synchronized execution across its social, mobile and digital platforms."

The SocialWhirled Canvas Collection is a bold, new integrated suite of tools that meets these needs by extending campaign reach while providing complete creative control. Specific features include:

  • Robust Design Capabilities. Unlike traditional templates, Canvases offer complete creative control and customization. With access to the HTML, CSS and JavaScript, each Canvas can be built from the ground up or tailored-to-fit using one of the optimized Canvases from the collection.
  • Social-Mobile-Digital Extensions. Each Canvas campaign can be published simultaneously across social media, mobile and digital platforms. Built on Bootstrap and with social connect integration via Facebook, LinkedIn, Google Plus and Twitter, Canvases is the only suite of tools which connects campaigns across the social, mobile and digital landscape, ensuring a consistent brand presence across all channels.
  • Socially Enabled Widgets. Canvases harness the power of social media with built-in features including video players, voting capabilities, commenting, share buttons and custom Facebook applications. Additionally, the suite of tools streamlines the campaign management process with moderation functionality available from within the SocialWhirled dashboard.
  • Content Marketing Tools. Transform content marketing, with tools to manage, publish and deliver content quicker and easier than ever before. Canvases include targeting and segmentation tools, form captures, offers, A/B testing, landing pages, multiple language capability, easy data exports and more.
  • Powerful Analytics. Each Canvas comes complete with the award-winning SocialWhirled dashboard, which pairs analytics with social insights, including interest and attribute data -- all from one location.

"The SocialWhirled Canvas Collection gets marketers out of the dreaded template world while improving ROI on campaigns that span social, mobile and digital," added Lombard. "This customization, cross-platform synchronization and complete creative control is really the best of all worlds and results in an almost immediate jump in ROI."

The SocialWhirled Canvas Collection is available now. For more details, please visit http://canvases.socialwhirled.com/.

Cloud data governance was previously an avoided function when cloud deployments were relatively small. With the rapid adoption in public cloud – both rogue and sanctioned, it’s not uncommon to find regulated data dumped into public cloud and unprotected. This is why enterprises and cloud providers alike need to embrace a cloud data governance function and map policies, processes and technology controls accordingly. In her session at 15th Cloud Expo, Evelyn de Souza, Data Privacy and Compliance Strategy Leader at Cisco Systems, will focus on how to set up a cloud data governance program and s...

Every innovation or invention was originally a daydream. You like to imagine a “what-if” scenario. And with all the attention being paid to the so-called Internet of Things (IoT) you don’t have to stretch the imagination too much to see how this may impact commercial and homeowners insurance. We’re beyond the point of accepting this as a leap of faith. The groundwork is laid. Now it’s just a matter of time. We can thank the inventors of smart thermostats for developing a practical business application that everyone can relate to. Gone are the salad days of smart home apps, the early chalkb...
We certainly live in interesting technological times. And no more interesting than the current competing IoT standards for connectivity. Various standards bodies, approaches, and ecosystems are vying for mindshare and positioning for a competitive edge. It is clear that when the dust settles, we will have new protocols, evolved protocols, that will change the way we interact with devices and infrastructure. We will also have evolved web protocols, like HTTP/2, that will be changing the very core of our infrastructures. At the same time, we have old approaches made new again like micro-services...

Performance is the intersection of power, agility, control, and choice. If you value performance, and more specifically consistent performance, you need to look beyond simple virtualized compute. Many factors need to be considered to create a truly performant environment. In his General Session at 15th Cloud Expo, Harold Hannon, Sr. Software Architect at SoftLayer, discussed how to take advantage of a multitude of compute options and platform features to make cloud the cornerstone of your online presence.
Even as cloud and managed services grow increasingly central to business strategy and performance, challenges remain. The biggest sticking point for companies seeking to capitalize on the cloud is data security. Keeping data safe is an issue in any computing environment, and it has been a focus since the earliest days of the cloud revolution. Understandably so: a lot can go wrong when you allow valuable information to live outside the firewall. Recent revelations about government snooping, along with a steady stream of well-publicized data breaches, only add to the uncertainty
