ShoeDazzle Teams With Onverse for Virtual Product Placement

TEMPE, AZ--(Marketwire - October 14, 2010) -  Onverse.com, an online social virtual world, and ShoeDazzle.com, the personalized online styling society, have partnered to provide ShoeDazzle a product presence inside the Onverse virtual world. The first rollout of virtual products includes a series of shoes in ShoeDazzle's fall fashion selections. Onverse is giving the virtual shoes away free.

Onverse has a large focus on shopping and customization. Its unique shopping system allows its 30 virtual stores to change inventories every 30 minutes, pulling from a pool of thousands of items and giving customers a unique experience each time they shop.

"Virtual worlds are changing the way advertising and product placements are viewed in games," said Steve Pierce, founder and CEO of Onverse. "In traditional games it's hard to place advertisements without causing distraction, but in a social world like Onverse it actually enhances the experience."

ShoeDazzle is a monthly styling service at a cost of only $39.95 per month. Every month members receive an online showroom featuring a personalized selection of shoes, handbags, and accessories. The styles are selected by their fashion experts, based on a style survey members fill out during registration. There is no obligation to purchase once registered and members can choose to skip a month at anytime if they so desire.

"We're very excited to see this promotion unfold over the coming months," said Chris Nella, Director of Marketing, ShoeDazzle. "ShoeDazzle is always looking for new ways to make our shopping experience more entertaining. It's a great way to showcase the personalized experience of shopping at ShoeDazzle by making it even more fun and diverse."
