Hootsuite, the world's most widely used social relationship platform, today announces a new product designed to help organizations extend the reach of social media programs. Available today, Hootsuite Campaigns follows the company's acquisition of Brightkit, an engagement platform for creating customized social marketing campaigns.

"Organizations are looking for new and exciting ways to engage their audience," says Ryan Holmes, CEO of Hootsuite. "Hootsuite Campaigns extends our social marketing capabilities, allowing businesses to reach new audiences through engaging contests, sweepstakes and galleries, all managed from their Hootsuite dashboard."

Hootsuite Campaigns empowers digital marketers with more than 13 types of different social contests, sweepstakes, and galleries to attract followers and drive leads. Hootsuite Campaigns delivers high impact, measurable results across embeddable microsites, Facebook, and mobile devices. Campaigns is integrated with Hootsuite's primary dashboard, so businesses can monitor campaigns, engage with customers and build lists for further outreach from a single location.

Hootsuite Campaigns helps marketers:

--  Create social media galleries to aggregate mentions and rich media
    containing specific hashtags, monitor incoming content before it appears
    publicly

    virality, create a monitoring stream to follow adoption and target
