NEW YORK, May 22, 2012 -- Ace Marketing & Promotions, Inc. (OTC.BB: AMKT) announced today that over a 20-week period The Boston University Cosmetic & Laser Center (located in Boston Medical Center's beautiful new Shapiro Center) will utilize Ace's Mobiquity Networks to promote their services and treatments to Mall visitors in Boston's historic Back Bay.
Mobiquity Networks allows advertisers the ability to deliver mobile content and other rich media via Bluetooth or Wi-Fi to on-the-go shoppers' mobile devices. The content delivered by Mobiquity Networks is always free to the end-user (including no data charges) and advertisers can choose to pay Mobiquity Networks a set fee or on a per-download basis.
This advertising medium targets shoppers with engaging content as they move about the mall environment and does not require them to check-in, download an application or be tracked by GPS, eliminating three major barriers in location-based mobile marketing. Ace's Mobiquity Network units are strategically positioned near entrances, anchor stores, escalators and other high-traffic and high dwell-time areas throughout each mall, creating a "cloud" to maximize advertising messaging reach and frequency.

Ace's mobile technology allows advertisers to interact with shoppers through either Bluetooth (push) or Wi-Fi (pull). Mobile devices with Bluetooth set to "visible" or "discoverable" are detected and prompted with an opt-in message to receive the rich media content from the advertiser; those answering "Yes" will receive the content. The users can also access the content by connecting to Mobiquity's Wi-Fi Network throughout the mall.
Dean Julia, CEO of Ace Marketing, said "the interest for campaigns using our Mobiquity Network is rising rapidly. We believe our mobile solution is the most effective way to reach shoppers at the point of purchase. We anticipate a steep ramp-up of advertisers utilizing our network over the next six months."
Some popular campaign elements delivered through this medium include coupons, special event offers, movie trailers, calendar reminders, mobile applications, ring tones and wallpaper.
