NEW YORK, Aug. 24, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Jerrick Media Holdings, Inc., (OTCQB: JMDA) (the "Company" or "Jerrick"), a technology company, announced today that it has added two new social publishing communities, "Serve" and "Viva" to its Vocal publishing platform. Serve, https://serve.media, explores the lives, culture, and careers of those in and around the military, while Viva, https://viva.media, explores the lives of women, from the workplace to home, family, adventure, ambition, and more.
Vocal, https://vocal.media, is Jerrick's long-form social publishing platform, engineered for the speedy and effortless creation of rich media content and the intuitive discovery and navigation by visitors. Vocal's proprietary, algorithmic engine capitalizes on the power of specific and dedicated audiences and is designed to promote maximum SEO exposure and monetization opportunities.
The Vocal platform currently hosts 21 niche-communities including food, music, science fiction, the workplace and pop culture. Connecting original content with communities passionate about the topics, Jerrick's growth since Vocal's introduction in November 2016 has exceeded all expectations. New communities are objectively and quantitatively derived in response to voices (interest levels) within the rapidly growing Vocal sub-communities.
"With nearly half of the Vocal community comprised of women, we launched Viva, a female specific community, to cultivate conversations about what matters most to women," commented Justin Maury, Head of Product, Creative and Design at Jerrick. "Today, we also launched Serve, a community dedicated to dialogue around the military. Given today's developing political climate, we wanted to provide our users with a forum through which to discuss, inform and learn about the armed forces. We plan to launch more engaging communities that inspire conversations, ideas and opportunities to our growing Vocal network."
Based on the success of the communities launched to date, Jerrick plans to substantially accelerate the rollout of new community sites on its Vocal platform throughout the remainder of 2017.
Jerrick is a technology company focused on the development of digital communities, and the targeted marketing of branded digital content, and e-commerce opportunities algorithmically derived in relevance for each community.
Core to Jerrick's unique capabilities is Vocal, a proprietary long-form digital publishing and content distribution platform, capable of hosting all forms of rich media content.
Vocal uses a proprietary algorithm which intelligently bridges media-rich long-form creative content with targeted branding and ecommerce monetization opportunities in each niche-community. Each community is also managed by a dedicated team, whose primary focus is on revenue conversion of the published material via digital arbitrage.
