Virgin Mobile launched stores in Canada in the 4th quarter of 2005 in Ontario and has since expanded that development into Western Canada and the Western US.
Mobile Gaming Now has developed a proprietary mobile platform and offers an online and mobile sweepstakes marketing system. The program features sweepstakes as a marketing tool to create new leads and traffic. The program builds a custom sweepstakes promotion for a client utilizing an online promotion and entry website as well as a mobile phone entry form. Consumers can enter online or on a mobile phone.
"We're a good marketing solution for Robinson Wireless," said CEO Mark Jensen. "We add a new dimension to its marketing with our sweepstakes game and lead generation system. We can promote the ASAP brand for Robinson Wireless and drive its sales of products to the youth market, especially the hot new phones from Virgin Mobile Canada."
Jensen said Mobile Gaming Now expects to be operational with Robinson Wireless in January 2007 with a gaming website and search engine marketing program. In addition to a focus on the Internet e-commerce store, Mobile Gaming Now will direct traffic towards the local marketing of the Virgin Mobile Mini-Stores in Vancouver.
