NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwired - Apr 4, 2013) - Hipcricket®, Inc. ("Hipcricket"), the one-stop mobile advertising and marketing company and subsidiary of Augme® Technologies, Inc. (OTCQB: AUGT) (or "Augme"), today announced that a mobile advertising campaign for Nothing Bundt Cakes saw qualified users demonstrate a 55 percent engagement rate with store directions and click to call functionality.
In conjunction with Nothing Bundt Cakes' advertising agency Firehouse, the Nothing Bundt Cakes mobile ad campaign ran two weeks prior to four major holidays in 2012 and early 2013. It featured mobile banner ads that sent users to holiday-themed custom landing pages that utilized store locator, driving directions and click to call functionality all built by Hipcricket. Through audience, radius and the geo-targeting capabilities of AD SERVE® within Hipcricket's AD LIFE® platform, Nothing Bundt Cakes, Hipcricket and Firehouse were able to not only reach its target audience of Women 25-54 years of age, but approach that group while in close proximity to Nothing Bundt Cakes' bakery locations, ultimately reaching the right audience in the right location to offer its products and drive consumers to purchase.
"Hipcricket provided an end-to-end solution that included its premium ad network and superior creative development," said Firehouse's Emma Coker. "We really appreciate the strong partnership with Hipcricket as well as their strategic vision, flexibility, and ability to effectively execute successful campaigns around each holiday with their geo-targeting capabilities."
"Through the mobile intelligence gathered through our platform, Nothing Bundt Cakes was able to leverage hyper-local targeting, data and analytics to optimize the campaign in real time and engaging creative ad units to successfully achieve their objectives," said Doug Stovall, Hipcricket Executive Vice President - Sales and Services. "By layering in geo-targeting you might say that the campaign was fully baked!"
