Pringo Helps PCGCampbell Create Traction for Yokohama Tire Corporation

Social-Networking Consultancy Partners With LA-Based Marketing Agency to Create Online Contest to Support Yokohama's Green Initiative

LOS ANGELES, CA--(Marketwire - October 31, 2007) - Integrated communications company PCGCampbell has adopted Pringo's white-label social-networking platform to create an innovative marketing campaign for high-performance tire manufacturer Yokohama Tire Corporation (Yokohama). PCGCampbell chose Pringo's technology to power a complete social-media Web site for a contest designed to promote Yokohama's commitment to the environment and create an environmental community.

Using Pringo's feature-rich platform, PCGCampbell built an online forum for consumers across the US where visitors can create profiles, communicate with each other and form sub-communities. Users are also able to submit their environmental projects, created to help preserve their respective communities, to potentially win prizes, including an eco-trip to Costa Rica and gift certificates from Patagonia and iTunes.

Pringo's complete social-networking and media-sharing platform helps PCGCampbell facilitate a community among current and potential customers. Goals of the campaign are also to reinforce Yokohama's online branding, increase its user base and enhance the company's position as a socially aware tire manufacturer that is focused on protecting the Earth. The site is available at www.ecotreadsetters.com

"We're very impressed by Pringo's responsiveness and efficiency. We needed this project done very quickly, and Pringo's ability to affordably deploy our application within a tight timeframe made them an ideal partner. Pringo's customer care reflects the quality-of-service we aim to offer our clients, and its flexible, scalable platform has us recommending social-media projects to many of our clients as part of their online marketing initiatives."
