Vantage Communications Wins 2011 Golden Bridge Award for Best Mobile Public Relations Campaign

Recognized for Its Work With Mobile Family Safety Company Life360

SAN FRANCISCO, CA--(Marketwire - Aug 17, 2011) - At last week's 2011 Golden Bridge Awards, Vantage Communications was recognized once again for its work with mobile family safety company Life360, bringing home a win in the PR and Marketing Campaigns Category - Mobile/Wireless division. This win reinforces Vantage's position as a leader in mobile public relations while underscoring its strong understanding of the mobile sector and trends to advance its clients.

Life360 came to Vantage to launch its location-based family safety iPhone application, and ultimately gain traction as the largest provider of mobile family safety services. Vantage rose to the challenge, developing a campaign to set Life360 apart in the mobile app world. The debate -- do family monitoring applications violate a child's right to privacy, or are they a natural evolution of technology, one that can actually enhance parenting?

The debate proved to be a success. Vantage quickly garnered mainstream coverage on FOX News, CNN Radio and CNBC. And as a result of the campaign, Life360 rose from 10,000 users to over 2,000,000 users in just a few short months -- an increase of approximately 1,333 percent, achieving its ultimate goal as the largest provider of mobile family safety services.

"The campaign we developed for Life360 truly shows our creativity and out-of-the-box thinking in getting results," said Rob Adler, vice president of Vantage Communications. "It's an honor to be recognized among such innovative campaigns in the mobile industry. Our goal is to push our clients' message to the right people, not only for terrific PR results, but ultimately for sales results. That goal was achieved in just a few shorts months with this campaign."

Vantage was first recognized for its expertise in mobile communications when it was awarded best mobile public relations firm by the Mobile Village Mobile Star Awards™ program in 2010. Today, no other firm covers the wide spectrum of the mobile space from mobile phones and apps to network infrastructure enterprise. In the past year, Vantage has gained top tier media coverage for user interfaces, mobile video, application delivery, mobile backhaul, testing and smart grid. Vantage is also a strategic partner of leading technology publication VentureBeat's annual MobileBeat conference.
