iUpload Enterprise Blogging SoftwareHopefully I'll have time to take iUpload's new blogging system for a spin. It's geared towards Enterprise bloggers [corporations that want to run several blogs but have full control over what gets out and when] and Renee Blodgett is heading up the PR for the launch. Here's the press release Renee sent me Sunday night.
iUpload Launches Business Blogging Platform; Perspectives Extends Brands & Creates Communities
Author Once & Reach Multiple Communities with iUpload Perspectives; Expands Marketing Reach & Extends Content for Companies and Publishers
Scottsdale, Arizona â€” February 13, 2005 â€”Today at DEMO@15, a leading industry conference for launching new and innovative technology products, iUpload, a content management and corporate blogging solution provider, launched Perspectives. iUpload Perspectives offers a unique business blogging application that allows users to create content in their blog and instantly reach multiple communities and sites.
iUpload Perspectives takes managing content and blogging to a new level, extending the reach of information by making it available to a wider audience, cross posting to diverse communities, or, targeting information within your own community down to particular individuals.
â€œParticipation on the Internet is turning into a nuisance and getting worse,â€? said Robin Hopper, CEO of iUpload. â€œPeople have numerous places they need to share information â€“ their companyâ€™s website, emails, their CRM application, discussion forums, social networks, a corporate blog, their personal blog, etc. iUpload Perspectives lets people participate in ALL of these places from the friendly confines of their own blog.â€?
The number of Perspectives that can be applied to content is growing weekly and ranges from: customer relationship and contact management applications like salesforce.com and Plaxo; search portals like Yahoo!; social networks applications like Tribe; classified and auction sites like eBay; product and service review sites; contests and promotions from large brands like Idol; and even user generated tags like Technorati and Flickr.
â€œBusiness blogging within corporations is not enough. When corporate blogging tools are integrated into a powerful content management system, thereâ€™s an opportunity to not only increase the number of authors but extend the reach of their content,â€? said Allen Weiner, Research Director, Media, Gartner G2. â€œBy empowering more authors, organizations can have an integrated and powerful way to implement new consumer generated marketing and branding platforms.â€?
For Individuals - iUpload Perspectives allows them to live in and communicate from their blog rather than taking the time to go to numerous websites and applications while retaining control over where their information might appear.
iUpload Perspectives to Launch at DEMO@15!
For Organizations - iUpload Perspectives offers an effective way to tap into the blogosphere, launch consumer generated marketing programs, conduct promotions and contest, and create, expand and promote participation in their community. A host of administrative tools allow organizations to manage and distribute content coming from individuals as appropriate, turning bloggers into potential authors and allowing them to leverage the very best content into any of their web properties.
"iUpload has been chosen from among hundreds of companies to present at DEMO this year," said Chris Shipley, Executive Producer/DEMO Conferences. "DEMO highlights only the most compelling products, concepts and ideas that are uniquely impacting their market segments, and changing the dynamic of the market. iUpload Perspectives is that sort of product.
