Snipp Announces the Launch of Nine New Programs Across Multiple Industries and Geographies

BETHESDA, MARYLAND -- (Marketwired) -- Mar 11, 2015 -- Snipp Interactive Inc. ("Snipp"), an international provider of mobile marketing solutions listed on the TSX Venture Exchange (TSX VENTURE: SPN), announced today the launch of nine new programs over the past month. The programs span multiple industries and markets, including two campaigns in the Middle East and six of them are with repeat clients.

Below are brief descriptions of the campaigns. For contractual and competitive reasons, Snipp does not disclose the names of some of its clients on public releases.

City and Retailer Specific Personal Care Promotion. A Fortune 500 personal and health care company (and existing Snipp client) has launched a city and retailer specific promotion for one of its portfolio brands. Consumers who purchase the brand's Starter Kit from any of 19 participating retailer stores in the city can send in a picture of their receipt with their qualifying purchase by text message, email or web upload.

Honda Augmented Reality (AR) Campaign. Alghanim Motors, the sole distributor for Honda products in Kuwait, is launching the new 2015 CRV and leveraging Snipp's Augmented Reality capabilities to educate customers on its new features and highlight their launch advertisement in digital media. Snipp has created an interactive, immersive Augmented Reality campaign with multiple triggers showcasing different aspects of the car including the animation of the engine, a virtual journey of all the new features, and an in-page launch video. In addition Snipp has added a "WIN an iPhone6" promotion into the experience to incentivize people to sign up for test-drives. This is Snipp's second Augmented Reality campaign with a mainstream auto brand in the Middle East. See more here

Heya Healthy Eating Campaign. Health Empowerment Youth Association (Heya) in Kuwait is leveraging Snipp to promote healthy eating to overcome and prevent childhood obesity in Kuwait and the Middle East. Snipp has developed an Augmented Reality app game, targeted at kids between the ages of 4 and 9, where the user catches as many vegetables running around the room as possible. Double points are awarded if the user is playing the game at specific locations around Kuwait, encouraging people to leave the house. This project has been done in collaboration with SAHA Institute, the US embassy, MEPI and TBWA in Kuwait. The app "Heya Kuwait" is available for download in the app store and play store.

One of the largest quick service restaurant chains in the world is running a promotion in partnership with a leading movie ticketing company on the SnippCheck platform. Consumers that purchase four meals and a drink at the restaurant can text in their purchase receipt to receive a free $10 movie reward. The promotion is part of a 12-month sales agreement signed between Snipp Interactive Inc. and the movie ticketing and promotions company.

Mobile Loyalty Platform Integration. A leading digital advertising innovation and mobile loyalty company has launched its third offer on the Snipp platform for a food spread brand. Ads displayed across the company's network direct consumers to a Snipp-enabled promotional microsite. Consumers who purchase the qualifying products from any retailer can snap and upload their qualifying receipts through the microsite. SnippCheck validates the receipts and once validated, the consumer is rewarded with loyalty points. The SnippCheck platform enables the ad network's clients to "close the loop" on their marketing by using online awareness to drive into in-store sales. See more here:

Consumers who purchase any of the qualifying products can submit a picture of their receipt via a widget on a special promotion website for an entry into a sweepstakes.

Selfie Promotion for Chocolate Candy Brand. In a unique application of SnippCheck, a popular chocolate candy brand is leveraging the platform to validate "selfies" submitted by consumers. The promotion is in partnership with a leading movie ticketing company and is restricted to purchases made at a national chain of convenience stores. Consumers who purchase qualifying products must take a selfie showing themselves, the products purchased and the in-store promotion display. The SnippCheck platform validates the images and verifies that the consumer meets the age restrictions for the promotion. Post validation, qualified consumers receive a text with a promo code they can redeem for a movie ticket.
