- PurpleAce Launches 3GSM Points Mean Prizes Competition -
PurpleAce, a pioneer of mobile content discovery solutions, today announced the launch of a competition, which the company hopes will set a record for virally spreading mobile content. The PurpleAce 3GSM Points Mean Prizes Competition gives loyalty points to those who share a specially prepared 3GSM ringtone, which is distributed to people registered on its website www.purpleace.com. The competition will culminate with the person with the most points receiving a prize on the final day of this year’s industry showpiece event in Cannes.
Once recipients have the ringtone, which represents a first for the 3GSM exhibition, they can forward it to friends to accumulate points. They’ll also be able to access the online PurpleAce 3GSM Points Mean Prizes leader board to get a real-time glimpse of how they’re doing in the competition. Whoever has the most points at the end of the show, and has validated their entry at the PurpleAce stand, will win a crate of fine French wine, which will be sent to wherever they chose.
PurpleAce CEO Scott Sproule said: “This ‘live’ viral marketing display will demonstrate the power of our Ripple products, which are based on man’s inherent social need to share. We’re planning to set a record for the highest number of recommendations for a single ringtone with this demonstration. Ripple gives operators and content providers a way to differentiate their offerings and add a real increase in revenues.”
The PurpleAce 3GSM Points Mean Prizes Competition is based on the company’s Ripple Discover product, which gives loyalty points to users whose recommendations of mobile content (such as photos, ringtones or videos) result in a purchase. These points can be exchanged for further mobile content. Ripple Discover also identifies and recommends new mobile content based on a customer’s past purchases.
PurpleAce will be exhibiting on the Siemens Mobile Acceleration stand (stand F17, hall two) at 3GSM 2005. To take part in PurpleAce’s 3GSM Points Mean Prizes Competition register now and start collecting points.

About Ripple Discover
Ripple Discover serves up a personalized selection of content to each subscriber and enables them to pass on content purchases to friends in a copyright-protected environment. A built-in loyalty program provides incentives to share content with their friends by tracking and rewarding people along the value chain. When new content is introduced, Ripple identifies the subscribers that are most likely to make recommendations, and promotes content to them based on their purchases and those of their social network.
About Ripple Share
Consumers tend to generate content (photos, videos, blogs) that is of interest to other consumers. Ripple Share enables subscribers to publish and monetize content they create. Other subscribers can view published content, recommend content to their friends, and receive personalized suggestions on what content to look at. This ensures that even user-generated content is actively consumed, and that content creators are rewarded for it, thereby encouraging a truly dynamic and loyal subscriber base.
About Ripple Vault
Aimed at operators that want to offer their customer based a reliable and affordable failsafe backup solution. Ripple Vault allows users to store their contacts, or any other mobile data like SMS, photos and videos, on a security-protected portal.
