Social Prospecting and Sales Platform Will Enable Users to Increase Sales Using Social Media

Wilmington, MA – October 13, 2015 – interlinkONE, a pioneer in the Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) industry, announced today that it has acquired AwarenessHUB, the number one social media software for sales. The data-powered social software platform is a powerful sales tool that intelligently identifies prospects across the social web to boost revenue.

“AwarenessHUB is the perfect complement to interlinkONE’s SaaS offerings and will allow our customers to maximize their social media investment by bringing the right prospects based on targeted criteria,” said John Foley Jr., CEO, interlinkONE. “There’s a true market need for this technology and our customers have already expressed great interest in utilizing it.”

Foley and interlinkONE are no strangers to the social media space; Foley is CEO and CMO for interlinkONE and Grow Socially, and is currently ranked by Forbes as the 15th Most Influential CMO on Social Media. “We truly understand what organizations are looking for from their social media software, and it is not just a platform to post content. Companies want to recoup their investment in their software platform, but also in their social media marketing team. It’s time to change the way we think about calculating ROI on social media and really use it as a sales tool. AwarenessHUB fills the gap in the industry and is unlike any other platform out there.”

Gregg Monastiero and Mike Lewis, who were both part of the previous AwarenessHUB team, have signed on as advisors and were elected as members of the interlinkONE Board of Directors at the beginning of September. Additionally, Todd Chambers, Partner and CMO, Chief Outsiders, also serves on the interlinkONE Board of Directors, and has joined the advisory team.

“I was introduced to AwarenessHUB in the fall of 2013 and when I peeled back the layers of the company what I found was an incredible, unique technology that was on the verge of changing the game in the market,” said Greg Monastiero.  “I’m excited to see AwarenessHUB’s success continue and prosper under John Foley, Jr. and interlinkONE’s leadership.”

How It WorksAwarenessHUB: Identify. Engage. Convert.

Key takeaways include; taking advantage of the tools and technology that you already have access to, the importance of staying current and ahead of your customers so you are positioned as a partner instead of ‘just’ a vendor, and how to differentiate yourself from the competition. “We’re going to provide you with new marketing ideas that inspire and motivate you to improve your own marketing efforts so you can really ‘eat your own dog food’ and take a more strategic approach to helping your clients in their marketing efforts,” added Foley. Lake says “We promise a fast-paced, high energy presentation, with useful tips and innovative ideas that attendees will be able to bring back to their shops and implement immediately.”
