WeedTV’s Expanded Shopping Mall Signs First Sponsors for New Advertising/Promotional Strategy
LAS VEGAS, NV / ACCESSWIRE / July 30, 2014 / Players Network (OTCQB: PNTV), a digital television, technology and new media company that develops, owns, and operates Branded Lifestyle Channel Destinations is pleased to announce "Jjuice", "Vhit Boom Vape", "Rhinestones and Razor Blades Jewelry" as the first tenant/advertisers in the expanded WeedTV Shopping Mall: http://weedtv.com/shopping-page/
The business model for the shopping mall is advertorial. Merchants pay monthly advertising fees to obtain pages in the "WeedTV Mall" which in turn are promoted in banner ads throughout WeedTV’s Digital Media. In addition, WeedTV receives a percentage of gross sales for processing transactions. The company’s initial goal is to have over 100 vendor/partners and/or merchants in various product categories paying monthly rates from $400 to $2,500+ per month, depending on size, placement and exclusivity of their section, plus a percentage of gross sales.
WeedTV has already produced a series of exclusive videos and branded entertainment shows that wraps around our merchant brands and products that will enhance the products in our shopping mall, and at the same time help build overall brand awareness of the products through social media utilizing PNTV’s powerful NexGenTV technology platform.
Joe Deighan, President of JJuice stated, "We love everyone at WeedTV. They are incredibly focused on helping us grow our brand and we are looking forward to growing with them. What has been most exciting is the added promotion they are delivering for us with their live events. We were just in Las Vegas for Champs, and JJuice was featured on their "WeedTV Biggest Limo in the World", as well as the spectacular WeedTV industry after party. It was a powerful social media opportunity for us having our "JJuice Girls" in the limo, and filming new content for WeedTV’s programming. We could not be happier with their professionalism and how aggressively they are creating added value opportunities for our company."
Joseph Estrada, WeedTV’s Director of Business Development stated, "I am very excited about our Shopping Mall model as it integrates a strong marketing and retail strategy to our core Media business. We did incredible business development during the recent Champs and AGE industry shows in Las Vegas, profoundly expanding our visibility in this rapidly growing marketplace. Industry feedback to the added value we create for our sponsors and advertisers has been overwhelming. I would also like to take this opportunity to sincerely thank "Jjuice", "Vhit Boom" and "Rhinestones and Razor Blades" for their participation and support, and exceptional products."
