OTCBB: IKTO) announced today they have launched mobile advertising as a new value enhanced feature to the iTokk Npoints-framework. This propels iTokk into the early stages of one of the Internets newest trends. In 2011 advertisers are predicted by analysts to spend some $11.35 billion worldwide on mobile advertising.
The significance for iTokk will be its initial deployment within the iTokk-Mobile product, where iTokk Mobile customers will be able to opt-in or opt-out of the mobile ad feature. Opting in will trigger an automatic subsidy to their mobile phone rates. Once the customer completes a phone call with iTokk-Mobile, a Mobile Ad is published presenting the call as sponsored by a particular advertiser. iTokk-Mobile ads will be able to target mobile phone users by demographic, interests, geographic area, mobile device and carrier in an simple, fast and cost effective manner. This type of targeting is what puts mobile advertising into its own category when it comes to providing useful information to consumers. A new Harris Interactive survey found that consumers would support advertising targeting cell phones in exchange for free phone features. More than one quarter (26%) of cell phone users said they would be willing to watch incentive-based advertising on their cell phones. And according to a new Informa Telecoms & Media study titled "Mobile Advertising Services: generating revenue through subsidized content", reported by Red Herring, Informa forecasts 2.1 billion mobile subscribers worldwide by the end of 2006, and nearly 4 billion by 2011.
"Carriers and search providers alike are rapidly beginning to test the market with mobile advertising looking for trends and consumer feedback," said Kevin Penstock, CEO of iTokk. "And we are excited to announce that iTokk is releasing its mobile Ad services now." About ITOKK
