BOSTON and SAN FRANCISCO and LAS VEGAS, Jan. 7, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Inmoji Inc., a company that connects consumers with their favorite brands through peer-to-peer, in-message, "powered" Inmoji, today launched its Software Development Kit ("SDK") for iOS and Android. The Inmoji SDK enables consumers to easily share rich media content from their favorite brands in text conversations via in-message clickable icons called "Inmoji." Inmoji creates significant new revenue opportunities for messaging applications and provides brands with the unique ability to engage authentically with their target audiences directly within their preferred chat, text and messaging apps.

Inmoji for Brands
Draft Kings, Drizly, Fandango, Fan Duel, Sol Republic, and Walmart are among the top tier brands already utilizing Inmoji to share in-message customized content. By using Inmoji, brands are able to connect with billions of consumers in new and meaningful ways by organically integrating their content into messaging conversations. Brands use Inmoji to share content in authentic and engaging ways for new product discovery, location-based services, loyalty programs, mobile gifting, contests, games, mobile commerce and app downloads. The Inmoji platform is ultra flexible, enabling brands to create custom Inmoji campaigns that resonate with their specific audiences, increase their reach, deepen brand loyalty and capture critical insights into consumer behavior and trends.
One of the first of many brands utilizing Inmoji to share in-message customized content is Drizly, the technology company powering fast, convenient beer, wine and liquor delivery for consumers and businesses across the U.S. Drizly founder and CEO Nick Rellas said: "Drizly makes alcohol delivery possible on consumer's terms quickly, conveniently and most importantly, legally. Partnering with Inmoji is a great example of how we are powering e-commerce opportunities in new and unique ways to shorten the distance between the retailer and the consumer."
