Mobiquity Networks and ShopAdvisor Team to Create Innovative Mobile App Offering Tapping Into User Preferences and Micro-Location
GARDEN CITY, N.Y., Feb. 11, 2015 — Mobiquity Networks, a wholly owned subsidiary of Mobiquity Technologies, Inc. (OTCQB:MOBQ) (“Mobiquity” or “the Company”), which operates a national location-based mobile advertising network, has reached an agreement that will enable ShopAdvisor’s nearly two million mobile app users to be uniquely notified of preferred and relevant products that are available near them.
Mobiquity Networks has the largest shopping mall-based beacon mobile advertising network in the country. The network footprint currently includes 220 premier U.S. shopping malls and will grow to more than 240 mall locations. The current network includes such iconic properties as Roosevelt Field Mall in New York, King of Prussia Mall in Pennsylvania, Sawgrass Mills Mall in Florida, The Galleria in Texas, and Brea Mall in California.
ShopAdvisor is a leading personal shopping concierge for consumers, providing information on some 210 million products from more than 16,000 retailers. The ShopAdvisor shopping website and mobile apps advise when, where, and what to shop, providing real time alerts when prices drop on items of interest. Consumers identify products they are interested in and ShopAdvisor facilitates personalized offers on those products. Through highly relevant messaging, ShopAdvisor connects brands with consumers, matching what the user wants to buy with what stores and brands are able to offer.
Through the Mobiquity Networks/ShopAdvisor arrangement, ShopAdvisor’s mobile users will know when they are physically close to retailers carrying their favorite products, receive current price and offer details, and will be alerted if there is an offer in proximity for a product that is similar to something for which they’ve shown a preference.
“The combination of proximity and preference is powerful. We believe ShopAdvisor mobile users will benefit with relevant local offers and information,” said Dean Julia, Co-CEO for Mobiquity Networks.
“The ShopAdvisor and Mobiquity Networks partnership will provide our mobile users with greater opportunities to access promotions and offers on products they love within their local area,” said Scott Cooper, Founder & CEO of ShopAdvisor. “The combination of the user preference information provided by ShopAdvisor and the reach and proximity information provided by the Mobiquity Technologies network will provide brands and retailers the opportunity to better engage with potential shoppers.”
