iHookup Social Extends Marketing Efforts With Launch of Venue Targeted Marketing Initiative

CAMPBELL, CA--(Marketwired - Sep 24, 2014) - iHookup Social, Inc. (OTCQB: HKUP), a mobile application positioned at the intersection of dating, social media and location-based connections, is pleased to announce that it has formally launched its marketing and outreach initiatives to offer local businesses an opportunity to be the venue of choice, for location based connections originating in the Company's app.

Users of the iHookup Social mobile app typically connect based on location, having an initial meeting that is virtual and on their mobile device. Opportunities and incentives are now available for users to offer up a venue based meeting spot or location, sponsored by a participating venue via coupons or other promotions.

"After months of growing our user base and with our venue based marketing collateral now finalized, we are excited to embark on yet another opportunity to drive real social engagement or interaction that translates beyond the virtual connections made in our app. This adds a new dynamic to what can sometimes be an awkward transition from a virtual connection and provides local options for a real life meeting or hookup, so to speak," said Robert Rositano Jr., CEO, iHookup Social. "We are intent on inspiring face-to-face connections at venues and extending additional revenue opportunities for the company."

"In addition to providing a genuine, efficient means to connect to other socially active users, we are pleased to bring the opportunity full-circle by providing a place to connect with a business that greatly values these introductions," added Rositano. "In this case we are both the matchmaker and the concierge in this social equation and frankly, we believe this level of service to our users is unprecedented. These venues may sponsor a promotion or simply begin paying for the coupon or offer upon redemption."

To expedite the circle of commerce, iHookup has perfected both a marketing video and sales brochure to be used in the attraction of various venues.
