FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
December 18, 2014
VANCOUVER, B.C. (December 18, 2014) – 3TL Technologies Corp. (TSXV: TTM) (the “Company”) announced today that ZAPNE LLC, , the US based manufacturer of a new, all natural acne treatment system, retained 3 Tier Logic, the Company’s wholly owned subsidiary, to use its Platform³ technologies to generate significant brand awareness, ignite online sales, and drive massive social media engagement.
“According to the American Academy of Dermatology nearly 85% of people experience acne at some point in their lives,” said ZAPNE Chief Executive Officer Ebbie Nakhjavani. “Unfortunately, there is a lot of misinformation in the media and on the market today about the causes and treatments of acne. Most over-the-counter products use harsh chemicals. We offer an effective all natural product that takes only 15 minutes to apply, and is used only once a week. Platform3 is giving us the infrastructure to use the power of social media to provide consumers with factual information about acne and our products that they can share with their friends on their social media channels, in the most-trustworthy manner possible. This is important for ZAPNE because our product works and studies show that people trust recommendations from their friends more than any other form of advertising.”
ZAPNE is using 3 Tier Logic’s Platform3 as the backbone of Club Zapne, the company’s content marketing and loyalty program. Club Zapne provides consumers with an opportunity to earn rewards points for sharing multi-media content with their friends on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram. Club Zapne will also give consumers access to the company’s affinity marketing program wherein consumers earn a commission from ZAPNE whenever their social media friends purchase products from Zapne.com. The company is expecting the friend-to-friend content sharing capabilities of Platform3 to rapidly propagate the affinity-marketing message and thereby fuel exponential sales growth. Club Zapne rewards points will be redeemable for ZAPNE product discounts and other audience-relevant rewards such as retailer gift cards and online music downloads.
“With facial skin care representing the largest part of the $62-billion U.S. cosmetic industry, by 2016 estimates, it is significant that ZAPNE has chosen Platform3 as the foundation of its consumer marketing program,” said Robert Craig, CEO of 3 Tier Logic. “It reinforces our belief that Platform3 can play a significant role in the advertising and sales of consumer packaged goods.”
In addition to helping ZAPNE grow its affinity-marketing program and brand awareness, the data acquisition technology of Platform³ will gather demographic and behavioral information about each consumer participating in Club Zapne. The platform’s data segmentation process will enable ZAPNE to identify, communicate with, and reward its most influential customers, as well as other consumers who are likely to advocate for the product with their friends.For further information, please contact: 3 Tier Logic Robert Craig Chief Executive Officer (604) 639-5441 [email protected] or Ali Mahdavi Managing Director Spinnaker Capital Markets Inc.
