MOKO Social Media Announces Updates on the REC*IT Launch Initiative

NEW YORK, Aug. 15, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- MOKO Social Media Limited (NASDAQ GM: MOKO; ASX: MKB), a provider of highly tailored mobile social community platforms for organized groups, today released the following business update. As planned, the Q3 2014 debut of MOKO's anticipated mobile app, REC*IT, is live and on schedule to meet the demand of U.S. college students. REC*IT's formal launch initiative commences on September 1, 2014.

MOKO Social Media Limited

"We are proud of MOKO's University Relationship Team, which has been diligently guiding on-campus rec directors through the pre-launch set-up process. We are also pleased to report that many of America's most prominent colleges and universities are participating including: Duke, The Ohio State University, University of Michigan, Georgetown University, University of Florida, NYU and Texas A&M amongst others. We only expect for this list, and the subsequent mobile communities, to increase." said Ian Rodwell, CEO of MOKO Social Media.

REC*IT Launch Operational Highlights

  • REC*IT "Starter Kits" are being shipped to universities across the country to educate and encourage students to download the REC*IT mobile app.
  • Recreation directors at all participating schools will receive REC*IT banded posters, banners, postcards, apparel, and instructions on how to utilize the REC*IT "starter kits."
  • A REC*IT sweepstakes, offering one student free tuition for a year up to $30,000, will launch on September 1, 2014 in coordination with the 2014 school year.
  • Direct email campaigns aimed at acquiring downloads from current and potential IMLeagues users will be implemented in September 2014.
  • An "Explainer Video" has been developed to educate all active intramural athletes and rec center directors about the features and benefits of REC*IT. This video will be live on a REC*IT branded Vimeo page in September 2014.
  • Campus rec centers have eagerly provided MOKO with positive REC*IT product content, which is continuously used to populate REC*IT's social media channels in an effort to create conversations and increase engagement between REC*IT users.

Sweepstakes

In order to enter the REC*IT "Win Your Tuition For A Year" sweepstakes, students will download the REC*IT app and then log into their IMLeagues account. The sweepstakes will run from September 1-November 23, with a winner being randomly drawn and announced on November 24. The sweepstakes will be the lead message in MOKO's communication strategy through all marketing channels to incentivize target customers to download and engage with the REC*IT app.

"After over a year of hard work in research and development, the REC*IT app is finally ready to be formally launched," said Rodwell. "We are very proud of the product that has been created and will use the following months to determine user adoption and metrics. We are excited about the next phase in delivering on our Company's business plan."
