San Francisco, CA –(HISPANIC PR WIRE)–November 18, 2002–With the world’s premier public relations conference as its backdrop, LatinClips today launched the industry’s most comprehensive monitoring service capturing news daily from 1,300 U.S. Hispanic, Latin America and Caribbean media sources.
LatinClips, a sister company of Hispanic PR Wire, is a web-based monitoring service that tracks news from Latin-focused online Spanish, Portuguese and English language dailies, weeklies, semi-weeklies, monthlies, magazines, trade journals, wire services and portals. The service offers the industry’s broadest Latin coverage, the most complete clip management system and also features a minimum of SEVEN searches for one low rate with UNLIMITED key words.
According to a new survey of 100 top Hispanic print media outlets conducted by LatinClips, more than 75 percent of the outlets surveyed said they post their news content online – and within a year the total will go up to 90 percent. In Latin America, a similar audit of top media researchers indicates that an estimated 93 percent of all key print media outlets currently post their news online.
“LatinClips is simply a must-have tool for companies and organizations tracking their news in the U.S. Hispanic and/or Latin American markets,” said Christine Clavijo-Kish, CEO of LatinClips during remarks at a news conference held at the PRSA International Convention in San Francisco. “With so much news content now available online, LatinClips’ users can retrieve their stories in a timely, efficient manner from domestic and international sources. It’s a premium product without the premium price.”
LatinClips is available as either a stand-alone service or as a bundle with press release distributions through Hispanic PR Wire.
“With LatinClips on board, we now offer a Hispanic distribution and tracking combination that is unmatched,” said LatinClips partner and Hispanic PR Wire President Manny Ruiz.
“The real bonus with LatinClips is that beyond just press release tracking it also enables clients to use it for reputation management, competitive analysis, crisis management and new business development,” said LatinClips President Dalia Salazar.
