Zoove Introduces StarStar Dialing With Support From the Largest U.S. Mobile Carriers


(Market Wire Via Acquire Media NewsEdge) PALO ALTO, CA and MIAMI, FL -- (MARKET WIRE) -- 06/28/10 -- Today Zoove, the pioneer in cross-carrier mobile dial codes and direct response marketing, announced that its StarStar Mobile Dial Code solution is now available across the largest U.S. mobile carriers, including AT&T(1) and Verizon. The launch of the StarStar Mobile Dial Code service enables brands and agencies to reserve branded Mobile Dial Codes (MDCs) and use the Zoove platform to quickly and efficiently launch StarStar Code direct response programs.



StarStar Mobile Dial Codes are intelligent phone numbers preceded by "**" that anyone with a mobile phone can dial to interact with a brand. The 2-12 character dial codes uniquely combine the benefits of a Web address (URL), 800 number and SMS/text short code all into one branded call-to-action, expanding the reach of marketing campaigns by connecting mobile consumers with brands, marketing offers and promotions.

By simply dialing a vanity StarStar Mobile Dial Code for a brand (**BRAND), a consumer can opt-in to receive a wide variety of marketing offers and promotions including text messages, applications, coupons, Web pages, multimedia and voice (call center, IVR, etc.) directly on their mobile phone. Consumers only need to dial one easy-to-remember StarStar Code.


"StarStar Codes offer a full response experience and can be easily branded, allowing brands and advertisers to serve fully integrated ads to better connect and interact with their customers," said Jerry Gentemann, president and founder at Mobilize Worldwide. "The automation of the campaign management process through a self-service platform means advertisers can launch campaigns more quickly, and modify them mid-campaign to maximize response rates and return on investment." Also today, Zoove announced the launch of the National Mobile Dial Code Registry. The Registry serves as the central registration and management service for brands, advertisers and agencies to lease and manage StarStar Codes. This includes the registration of their brands and trademarks represented as StarStar Codes.

Zoove CEO Tim Jemison said, "Through our carrier partners, StarStar Mobile Dial Codes become a ubiquitous mobile direct response mechanism capable of reaching over 285 million consumers in the US with relevant messages. The undisputed support from the major US mobile carriers represents a dramatic change in the capabilities of the marketing industry. Just as marketers scrambled to secure their branded URL back in the early '90s, so, too, will they need to secure their brand's StarStar Code."
