NEW YORK, Dec. 13, 2010 /PRNewswire/ -- VoodooVox, the company whose multicultural marketing and advertising platform reaches over 8 million Hispanics a month through interactive audio and SMS media, today announced its new Hispanic Influencer Program (HIP).
HIP provides brands and advertisers direct access to top Hispanic voices and community influencers through a variety of influencer-related advertising capabilities including: content sponsorships, post-roll messages, talent reads, sweepstakes, endorsements, and talent appearances.
VoodooVox's marketing platform uses interactive audio notifications that alert callers to timely news and informative updates. Hispanic prepaid calling card users can choose which types of notifications they'd like to hear (e.g., sports, news, local deals, etc.).
"Brands are just beginning to grasp the powerful evolution in the prepaid calling card industry," said Gregory Wester, COO of VoodooVox. "With new technologies, these pervasive cards now deliver not only low-cost and convenient telephony, but also real-time news updates, local, time-sensitive deals, and more."
Through HIP, these renowned influencers are voicing their own content programming as well as advertising messages. The HIP media channel will be available to the 8 million Hispanics a month reached by VoodooVox's multicultural marketing platform.
"VoodooVox is providing this very special opportunity for me to expand my connection with my community and enhance my lifelong mission of empowering others to live happier and healthier lives," said Dra. Isabel-Gomez. She continued, "Each month, millions will be able to engage with my message, and yours, through VoodooVox's multicultural marketing platform."
