‘It’s Just Like a Mini Mall! Hey Hey!’ As Cellufun Creates CelluMall Virtual Shopping Experience On Mobile Device
Cellufun’s Geoff & Drew’s mobile storefront provides a new way to get baked goods for those short on dough
NEW YORK, NY – May 13th, 2008 – Cellufun has brought the next level of social interaction to the mobile phone with the addition of the CelluMall. Today the mobile social gaming community announced plans to launch the first of many virtual mall stores in the Cellufun community, allowing members to purchase virtual goods with points won during mobile game play, also known as Cellupoints. The first store in the CelluMall will be a virtual Bakery, sponsored by popular online bakery, Geoff & Drew’s.
The CelluMall is another example of how Cellufun is mixing mobile gaming with social media. Cellufun’s games require multi-player interaction in order to succeed, such as the award-winning Call of the Pharaoh, which requires mobile game players to assist one another in the building of their individual pyramids, and community-based holiday contests, such as the Halloween-inspired, Hellofun, and Christmas’ Merry Mobile. Adding the CelluMall to the community, which allows users to purchase items for one another using Cellupoints, adds to the myriad of social aspects of the site.
“The CelluMall will allow gamers to further interact with one another and reap greater rewards for excellent game play, while at the same time allowing real stores to reach targeted customers for advertising within our games,” said Arthur Goikhman, CEO and co-founder of Cellufun.
The CelluMall Bakery, sponsored by Geoff & Drew’s, allows Cellufun gamers to purchase cookies, brownies and other virtually-baked gifts to give as presents to other gamers or keep for themselves. Additionally, the Bakery will feature click-to-dial advertisements from the real Geoff & Drew’s Bakery, with coupons for purchases of actual cookies, brownies and other freshly baked gifts. Within minutes of the store’s launch, Cellufun users commented asking for Cellufun specials and driving value for the actual Geoff & Drew’s store as an advertiser.
“Being the first store in Cellufun’s CelluMall is a great opportunity for our business to reach targeted customers in a creative mobile format,” said Drew Koven, CEO of Geoff & Drew’s. “We are very excited about testing this new medium with an established mobile community like Cellufun.”
Cellufun and Geoff & Drew’s were brought together by mobile advertising network and design studio, Mo’Jiva, which is also managing mobile advertisements and the click-to-dial order processing for the mobile storefront.
The opening of the first store in Cellufun’s CelluMall coincides with their Mother’s Day event, where users short on “dough” can purchase virtual baked goodies for the most special ladies in their life. Mobile users can access the CelluMall and award-winning mobile game titles from their wireless handsets at wap.cellufun.com.
