Tellem Grody PR Launches “Suite” Social Media for Business

Los Angeles – February 13, 2012 – Tellem Grody Public Relations, Inc. (TGPR), a public relations and social media marketing agency, today launched one of the most comprehensive social media suites for virtually any business.  Available as either an exclusive software license or complete social media marketing package, TGPR’s social media suite was created for businesses with limited or no social media expertise or for those looking for a more robust customer relationship management (CRM) and measurement tool.  Founded in 1994, TGPR ( expanded in recent years to offer social media services to its clients including Celebrity Entertainment Group, Michael Flatley’s Lord of the Dance, Marina Plastic Surgery Associates, Rational Therapeutics, Inc., Aurora World Inc., YooHoo & Friends™ and LA Music Academy College of Music, but now offers a whole new level of research and contact management for the social arena.

“Business owners know they need to embrace and integrate social media to build their brands, but lack in-house expertise or think they can do it all themselves,” says Dan Grody, partner at TGPR. “We know how much of a time suck day-to-day social media is.  Many companies have a ‘set it and forget it’ approach to Facebook and Twitter — hoping for miracles — but that’s simply not enough in this rapidly changing social media environment.”

TGPR’s capabilities now include brand monitoring, consumer engagement, community building and publishing of creative content.  The most valuable component of the TGPR Social Media Suite is the robust social CRM tool that sits at its core. “Our clients can discover and understand their key audiences through this new platform where we monitor conversations and search terms globally via Twitter, Facebook, Friendfeed, YouTube, Foursquare and more than 200 million micro-sites, blogs and forums,” says Grody. “Through engagement and outreach, TGPR builds rich social profiles about people that include sentiment, conversation history and, most important, previously unavailable contact information for your marketing databases. We can segment these users into a database of actionable contacts. CRM tools such as integrate well with the social media suite, adding value to your existing customer tracking methods.”

He adds that through TGPR’s package, “We give our clients unparalleled power to build trust in their brand and reach customers with appropriate messaging.”  The social media packages are “priced competitively and can be set up relatively quickly,” Grody says.
