Connecting Local Shoppers with Mall Retailers and Fashion Content Drives Online Engagement and Revenue Visit PlaceWise Media at RECon 2013, May 19-22 at the Las Vegas Convention Center in booth C10-Union Street in the Leasing Mall DENVER and LAS VEGAS; May 20, 2013 – PlaceWise Media today announced that more than 200 of its 328 shopping center clients have joined its digitally integrated marketing platform. The advanced marketing platform combines consumer preferences and content to create shopper engagement and monetization opportunities. Shopping centers that leverage PlaceWise Media’s digitally integrated platform can connect their shoppers with premium lifestyle and fashion content and create additional engagement via Facebook, Twitter and mobile applications. The platform also creates an additional revenue stream through ad revenue sharing across the national PlaceWise Media mall network. All this results in more online traffic, impressions and engagement, which in turn stimulates increased foot traffic and lease rates for shopping centers. “The growth of the digitally integrated platform indicates that there is a shift in how shopping centers are thinking about digital assets,” said John Dee, president of PlaceWise Media. “We’re also seeing a shift in the brand expectation of what an advertiser should be. The message must fit contextually in this shopping center world. The message and environment should be consistent, and the PlaceWise network ensures that is always the case. By leveraging our digitally integrated platform, shopping centers can invest in proven content and technology, and immediately begin to more effectively connect with their customers and drive traffic to their stores.” “The additional $45,000 in digital revenue generated by PlaceWise saved our budgets last year. We wouldn’t have met our revenue projections without it,” said Gerritt Smith, senior manager, Partnership Marketing at Glimcher. The 200 malls on PlaceWise Media’s digitally integrated platform come from more than 45 shopping center operators including Developers Diversified, Forest City, Glimcher, Madison Marquette and Urban Retail Development, among others.
