New MediaTrac(TM) BeBack(TM) Program Helps Auto Dealers Turn Prospective Vehicle Shoppers Into Buyers
SAN RAMON, Calif., Aug. 15, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- MediaTrac(TM) today announced the release of the BeBack Program. This vehicle sales inducement program helps auto dealerships specifically target those potential buyers who may have visited the dealership but failed to purchase a product on their most recent visit. The average auto dealership sees 75 to 80 percent of floor traffic leave the store without ever making a vehicle purchase and 40 percent of those shoppers will buy a vehicle in the next three days from a competitor. This new program is designed to help drive these lost sales opportunities back into auto dealerships. BeBack provides the buyer with an immediate, customer-centric, valuable motive to return to the store and make a purchase. It is also a very effective tool for motivating existing customers to return for secondary or repeat purchases.
MediaTrac, a marketing technology company providing customized frequency marketing, customized loyalty, prepaid maintenance, retention and media tracking programs for auto dealers, just completed six months of in-field beta testing on BeBack, which has proven extremely effective at targeting these prospects and turning them into vehicle buyers. "Our new BeBack program has been highly effective in the beta dealerships. In fact, one Toyota dealership sold 10 new Toyotas in the first 10 days on the program as a direct result of the BeBack card," commented Jeff Shenk, Director of Operations at MediaTrac.
The BeBack Program allows each dealership to select an incentive value, issue it in the form of a time-restricted, redeemable card and offer it to customers as a sales incentive to entice them to return within a specified period of time to make a purchase. The BeBack card resembles a gift card with the dealership's brand prominently displayed. Cards may have a variety of different denominations; the dealership chooses the discount value offered to each prospective buyer.
The BeBack cards carry a much higher perceived value to the customers than any other "take away" the dealership may already be providing. It is not unusual for dealers to see 18 to 20 percent of their prospects who received a BeBack card return and purchase a vehicle within 10 to 15 days of receiving the incentive card.
Immediately following their initial visit to the dealership and the issue of a BeBack card, a series of high-impact communications are sent to prospects. More than just an email, each communication utilizes a different aspect of sales psychology messaging to entice the prospect back into the dealership. The first of these emails is a quick survey, which seeks to determine the exact reason(s) why the customer did not make a purchase. Based upon the customer reply, a tailored sales response from the dealership may be initiated. The responses tend to be surprisingly candid and dealers may expect a 30 to 40 percent response rate to the survey.
"Prospects decide where to buy in part based on the speed and quality of sales follow-up. Statistics prove that if you can get your prospects back to your store quickly, you will have a much better chance of closing the sale. We deliver the right communications at the right time to entice your customers to return. And whether it is sitting in your prospect's wallet or purse -- or even on their dresser at home -- the BeBack card is a concrete reminder of the value of doing business with your dealership," said Shenk.
Established in 2001 and headquartered in San Ramon, California, MediaTrac is a marketing technology company providing customized loyalty, retention, marketing, prepaid services, and media tracking programs for the automotive, retail, entertainment and hospitality industries.

New York State Office of Mental Health Launches State-Wide Youth Suicide Prevention Program With Kognito's "At-Risk" Simulation
30,000 High School Educators Will Have Access to Online Training Beginning Today
ALBANY, N.Y., Aug. 15, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- The New York State Office of Mental Health (NYSOMH), with New York City-based Kognito Interactive (http://www.kognito.com), announced the inauguration of an innovative three-year program to train 30,000 high school educators in suicide prevention using Kognito's At-Risk online training simulation. All of the State's 1231 public high schools and their private counterparts are eligible to applyfor the program, which goes live today. Schools interested in joining the program can go to http://www.preventsuicideny.org/Kognito.html and follow the registration link.
"Depression and other mental illnesses begin in the teen years. Early treatment can have a real impact on disease progression," said Melanie Puorto, Director of NYSOMH's Suicide Prevention Initiative. The statistics in New York State are compelling, she noted. According to 2009 data (the most recent available) from a CDC survey of the State's youth between the ages of 14 and 19:
-- 22.6 percent reported feeling sad or hopeless every day for at least two
weeks in the previous 12 months
-- 18.2 percent had been bullied on school property
-- 13.3 percent had seriously considered attempting suicide
-- 7.4 percent of youth had attempted suicide one or more times
"Kognito's training enhances our agency'syouth suicide prevention efforts by providing educators with a virtual practice environment where they engage in role-play conversation with student avatars that exhibit signs of depression, substance abuse, bullying and thoughts of suicide. In this process, they learn to identify students at-risk, how to approach them to discuss their concern, and how to refer them to support services," Puorto said.
"At-Risk for High School Educators is the first online training available to provide realistic and risk-free role-play exercises in identifying, speaking with, and referring troubled youth," said Ron Goldman, co-founder and CEO of Kognito. "Developed with input from some of the country's leading authorities on youth suicide prevention and hundreds of educators, the resulting training can help connect students to treatment early on -- critical to improving mental health outcomes and to mitigating the kinds of tragedies that can scar entire communities."
Launched in 2010, At-Risk for High School Educators is listed in the Suicide Prevention Resource Center/American Foundation for Suicide Prevention Best Practices Registry for Suicide Prevention. An earlier version, At-Riskfor University Faculty, was the first training simulation to be added to this prestigious national registry. A recent Kognito study (http://www.kognito.com/efficacy) of more than 300 teachers in 40 states showed that those who completed the At-Risk training were significantly more likely toidentify and talk to high-school students exhibiting signs of psychological distress and refer them for professional help. Demos and trailers of the At-Risk trainings are available online at http://www.kognito.com
About New York State Office of Mental Health: New York State has a large, multi-faceted mental health system that serves more than 500,000 individuals each year. The Office of Mental Health (OMH) operates psychiatric centers across the State, and also regulates, certifies and oversees more than 2,500 programs, which are operated by local governments and nonprofit agencies. These programs include various inpatient and outpatient programs, emergency, community support, residential and family care programs. For more information, visit: http://www.omh.state.ny.us.
About Kognito:Kognito Interactive, headquartered in New York City, creates online role-playing simulations where users develop interpersonal skills and learn to effectively manage challenging conversations in the areas of health and behavioral health. Simulations are built using Kognito's proprietary Human Interaction Simulation Platform(TM), which is based on research in social cognition, neuroscience, and motivational interviewing. In these simulations, learners enter virtual environments, engage in conversations with emotionally responsive avatars, and receive personalized feedback.

Locate and Track Your Pet Anytime With Tagg--The Pet Tracker
- GPS Tracking System Merges Technology, Functionality and Design, Bringing Peace of Mind to Pet Parents -
SAN DIEGO, Aug. 15, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Pet parents no longer have to worry about losing their beloved companions with the arrival of Tagg--The Pet Tracker((TM)), an advanced pet tracking system equipped with GPS and wireless capabilities that enables pets to stay in touch with their owners. Tagg--The Pet Tracker is the first product from Snaptracs Inc., a newly formed, wholly owned subsidiary of Qualcomm Incorporated (NASDAQ: QCOM), the world leader in mobile technologies. The Tagg pet tracking system uses advanced GPS technology to enable pet owners to know where their pets are and be notified if they wander off. Tagg provides peace of mind for any pet parent by providing them access to their pet's whereabouts via a mobile phone, mobile device or computer.
Hundreds of thousands of pets go missing every year, and according to the National Council on Pet Population Study and Policy, only 15 to 20 percent of lost dogs and only two percent of lost cats are ever returned to their owners. Tagg--The Pet Tracker is a purpose-built solution that uses a sophisticated combination of GPS and wireless technology to monitor a pet's location and quickly notify the owner via email and/or text if the pet leaves its Tagg zone, the area where it spends most of its time--typically the home, yard and adjacent areas.
The Tagg tracker is designed for dogs and cats over 10 lbs. and is a small, lightweight and durable device that attaches securely to an existing collar. Built to withstand all the running, digging and jumping of a pet's busy day, the tracker is meant to be worn at all times, even while swimming. The long-lasting battery can last up to 30 days, but actual battery life will vary based on usage patterns. Convenient features have been built into the compact, stylish and comfortable tracker, including battery recharge notifications and a trip button, which allows pet and owner to take walks, car rides or travel without sending an alert.
"We created Tagg because we understand that pets are an important part of today's family. As pet owners ourselves, we were inspired to design a purpose-built solution that provides owners the peace of mind that their pet is where it is supposed to be," said Dave Vigil, president of Snaptracs. "A lost pet is something no owner wants to experience, and we are proud to have developed a simple-to-use and affordable tracking system that will help reunite pet and owner quickly if the pet wanders off."
Tagg--The Pet Tracker service is provided on the Verizon Wireless network, giving pet parents reliable access to tracking information via its nationwide coverage. The Tagg Master Kit, which includes all hardware and one full year of service, is $199.99 and has an anticipated September ship date. Individual trackers for additional pets in the same family are also available.
Tagg--The Pet Tracker is the first product from Snaptracs Inc., a newly formed, wholly owned subsidiary of Qualcomm Incorporated (NASDAQ: QCOM), the world leader in mobile technologies. Our mission is to make people's lives easier and safer. Tagg--The Pet Tracker was born out of our love for our pets and our system uses advanced GPS and cellular technology to help people find their lost pets.
Tagg--The Pet Tracker is a trademark of Snaptracs Inc. Qualcomm is a registered trademark of Qualcomm Incorporated. All other trademarks are the property of their respective owners.
The newest social game 'Magic Land' from wooga, the world's second
largest provider of social games, is now available on Facebook. Its engaging
story unites medieval customs and legends in a mix of role-playing, village
building simulation and adventure features. For a Facebook game, 'Magic
Land' offers especially well-developed characters, high-quality graphics and
gameplay that provides long-term fun with real friends.
wooga founder and CEO Jens Begemann introduced 'Magic Land' today at the
GDC Europe developer's conference in Cologne, Germany, in the run-up to
gamescom. In his keynote speech, he addressed the eminent changing of the
games industry into a mass entertainment market. Begemann elaborated,
"Social games will make the games industry the definitive medium for mass
entertainment. Even today, many games reach more people on a daily basis
than the major television formats. The next step in the evolution will be to
increase a player's identification with the game by increasing the game
depth combined with more developed social cooperation, interaction and
communication. We are heading in this direction with 'Magic Land'."
This new social game from the young Berlin-based company transports
players into a fantastic dreamland full of treasures and magic. The focus is
on the shared game experience with friends. The daily visit of friendly
kingdoms will be rewarded and some tasks, such as the big castle-warming
party in the player's own castle, can only be finished with the help of
friends. The creativity and variety that raises 'Magic Land' above other
social games can be attributed to the international developer team from
eleven different countries that has been polishing the game with a lot of
love for the last six months in Berlin. Additional social features will
introduce never-before-seen social interaction with friends and continue the
thrilling story. They are already in the works and will expand the game in
In addition, 'Magic Land' appears in seven languages and will have an
HTML5 add-on 'Magic Land - Island', which will provide a continuation of the
game on smartphones.
Bingo players are notoriously price conscious, and with the chance to
win cash or Bingo tickets, Jackpotjoy's latest offering seems to fit the
mould of a near perfect Online Bingo [http://www.jackpotjoy.com ]
Jackpotjoy's Daily Free Games have been one of the most successful
innovations of the last twelve months. The games offer something for
nothing, as long as players return to the site. The thinking is that regular
visits help increase brand loyalty.
The games were first launched last year with Tiki's Catch of the Day
which was followed by Stars of Tiki Temple, both of which offered the chance
to win free spins and cash prizes. They're now releasing their first Bingo
Daily Free Game - Show Us Your Balls - which features characters from their
popular TV campaign.
"Even after a year, the campaign is still running strong," explains
Michael Saunders, Managing Director of Jackpotjoy's parent company Gamesys.
"Our Queen of Bingo character is effortlessly likable and guest appearances
in games like Bingo Royale are incredibly popular with the players."
Each game of Show Us Your Balls lasts a week, though players can start
at any time by visiting the onsite Games Lobby and activating their Bingo
Every day a player activates seven random numbers. If present, the
numbers will be marked off on their Bingo ticket and if they complete a one
line, two line or full house they win a cash prize - it's that simple.
But, with this being from Jackpotjoy, there are more ways to win than
just landing a Full House. Some hidden numbers will also hide a character
from the campaign, and players can win Bingo Royale tickets if they collect
"One of the things I'm most proud of," Michael Saunders explains. "Is
that I believe that great games don't need to be complicated. They need to
be fun, exciting, rewarding, and Show Us Your Balls has it all!"
Show Us Your Balls is currently available at Jackpotjoy and its partner
sites, and is available to all players who have made a deposit.
