NEWARK, N.J. and PHOENIX, Nov. 5. 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- TEMPO Networks, the first and only pan-Caribbean media and entertainment company producing and offering culturally relevant content on all media platforms, announced an agreement to bring enhanced mobile marketing products and services to its Caribbean and U.S. audiences through Mobivity Holdings Corp. (OTCQB: MFON), an award-winning provider of proprietary and patented mobile marketing technologies and solutions.
Beginning this month, the Network that reaches four million viewers across the U.S, and Caribbean, will offer Mobivity's innovative Stampt smartphone loyalty application as a companion to its popular TEMPO Talk'R, TEMPO Water and TEMPO Kids products. Stampt gives iPhone and Android users the ability to replace paper stamp cards as well as receive specials and other information.
TEMPO also intends to use television advertising for TEMPO Talk'R and TEMPO Water in part to promote Stampt and build an opt-in database via Mobivity's text marketing solution, enabling businesses to reach mobile users with relevant information and offers.
Additional plans include:
- Text to win sweepstakes that promotes TEMPO and gives audience members the opportunity to enter to win trips to the Caribbean
- Audience engagement at TEMPO events in the Caribbean and the U.S.
- Stampt and text messaging opportunities for the more than 150,000 Caribbean-owned or focused businesses in the Tri-state area
The TEMPO Talk'r mobile application allows Caribbean consumers to make free unlimited calls to the US, Canada, UK, and at low rates to the rest of the world. Calls to other TEMPO Talk'r subscribers (TEMPO to TEMPO) are free.
TEMPO Water, launched to promote and encourage healthy living, is taken from the purest and freshest springs and processed through the most advanced purification techniques throughout the Caribbean and worldwide. The water is a staple at major events, festivals and is distributed in schools throughout the region.
TEMPO kids products include the popular JJ & Friends Phonics learning series that delivers valuable learning tools in a culturally relevant environment, enhancing the learning experience for Caribbean children.
"TEMPO is the ultimate platform for the entire Caribbean experience," said Frederick Morton, Jr., TEMPO Networks Founder, Chairman & CEO. "Caribbean people have a passion for living which shines through everything they do. By providing Mobivity's leading mobile solutions, we are further fulfilling our mission. In addition, TEMPO is enabling local businesses to reach customers in new and rewarding ways."
"We're thrilled to partner with TEMPO which is so committed to the welfare of the Caribbean people in their native land, in the United States, and elsewhere," said Dennis Becker, Mobivity Chairman and CEO. "Important elements of this initiative are the mobile tools that businesses, namely TEMPO clients, now have to interact with consumers and to grow."
