Norwalk, Conn., Sept. 12, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Engage121, Inc., a software and services technology leader, reveals that more than 50,000 small businesses now subscribe to HOT!Content. This service includes a suite of services: a daily email with curated content by vertical; reputation monitoring; and digital advertising for busy entrepreneurs so they can engage, build and retain a local community of customers and prospects.

“We are excited to have reached this milestone,” said Kurt Strumpf, COO of Engage121, Inc., “but we’re even more excited about the recent explosive growth of our subscribers. In the past year alone, our base has doubled – a trend that we expect will continue.”

HOT!Content subscribers experience how to build a loyal community and how to leverage that goodwill to grow their customer base by utilizing informative and engaging content solutions; reputation monitoring and advertising. “Small business owners were hearing a lot about the potential of digital, but they didn’t really understand how to use it and learning how wasn’t high on their priority list,” said Strumpf. “We knew we had to offer them something that they could use ‘out of the box,’ that would deliver immediate results.” Andy Anderson, President of FASTSIGNS in Rochester, Minnesota sums up the enthusiasm subscribers have for the service: “Engage121 solutions keeps my business active and current with engaging posts. And a lot of people are reached. It is definitely working. I love it!”

“As our users’ confidence grows utilizing HOT!Content, so does their willingness to explore our paid digital marketing management and advertising subscription services, like our Digital Marketing Assistant solution,” says Strumpf. “It’s a mutually beneficial approach that helps keep both our clients and our company on the leading edge of this ever-evolving technology.”
