June 01, 2006 (PRLEAP.COM) Business News
Teaneck N.J. – Ping Mobile and NYC-based CREW Marketing announced today their partnership to launch the PingRewards™ mobile marketing service to retail and advertising clients nationwide.

CREW Marketing, a provider of retail sales, marketing, merchandising, training, support and corporate services to all facets of the retail industry, has teamed up with Ping Mobile, a Mobile Marketing and Technology company providing trackable, campaign-based mobile marketing services, to provide retail industry clients with the unique PingRewards™ text message advertising and marketing service.

William Browne, Vice President of Sales, CREW Marketing stated that "we are excited to bring the PingRewards™ service to our existing and new clients as a new, inexpensive and effective way to help our clients maximize their advertising and marketing dollars."

Retail clients sign on as advertising partners via a “pay per text message” mechanism that allows them access to a brand new, performance-based, and revenue generating channel of communication with customers who they would otherwise not be able to reach.

These customers sign up for free through a double opt-in registration process, ensuring full acceptance and eagerness to receive these marketing messages, making the PingRewards™ mobile lists 100% targeted, as well as premium and exclusive to each of the participating retailers.

The PingRewards™ text messages, coupons, vouchers and marketing promotions are then redeemed and cashed-in at participating store locations.

“Ping Mobile’s partnership with CREW Marketing allows us to bring very targeted and specialized marketing services to our joint client roster,” said Ping Mobile CEO Shira Simmonds. “The collaboration allows us to cover every aspect of our clients’ mobile marketing needs. Ping handles nationwide mobile campaign set-up, marketing and promotion management, tracking and reporting; and CREW handles employee training, in-store advertising and logistics, on-the-ground buzz agents and nationwide signage and poster distribution.”

The in-store posters allow customers to text in any client keyword and receive their text promotion within 15 seconds. Ping’s back-office system automatically tracks each text message that is sent and supplies clients with reports on campaign success.
