FORT MYERS, FLA., and MILAN, July 31, 2006 – NeoMedia Technologies, Inc. (OTC BB: NEOM, www.neom.com), an innovator in market-driven technologies, announced today that its mobile marketing agency 12snap AG (www.12snap.com) subsidiary have completed a successful 90-day promotional campaign for Kraft Foods Italia.
The “Celebrate the 35th Birthday of Philadelphia” campaign was for the world famous Philadelphia cream cheese from Kraft, and was the fourth promotion created by the NeoMedia company for the international food giant. The celebration, marking the 35 years Kraft has offered Philadelphia cream cheese in Italy, featured a promotion written on the packs of the double pat of Kraft Philadelphia Classico.
Purchasers and participants had chances to win a “100 Creamy Ideas” cookbook, published by Mondadori, given away every hour, as well a Kodak Easyshare System with C310 digital camera and printer every day, and every month a prepaid debit card with €3,000 ($$3,650 U.S.) in electronic coupons to spend at any sales outlet within the VISA Electron circuit. The grand prize, won by a lucky customer from Milan province, was a fabulous Citroën C2 1.1 Elegance.|
More than 6 million packages of Philadelphia Classico were sold during the promotional period, resulting in an average of 1,800 entries per day in the sweepstakes, an excellent result that surpassed predictions.
Martin Copus, president of NeoMedia Mobile and COO of the parent company, said, “We’re delighted that a company of the stature of Kraft Italia is closer to mobile marketing, and that 12snap is becoming for Kraft a partner that offers the security of quality.”
