LOS ANGELES, May 22, 2007 – mobileStorm Inc. (www.mobilestorm.com, a leading provider of digital marketing solutions, today announced that Faketown has chosen the company to handle its email marketing needs. The company will use mobileStorm’s enterprise Bolt email marketing solution for multiple communication vehicles.
Faketown will use Bolt for all of its email messaging needs. This includes both transaction-based confirmation messages as well as a bulk enewsletter to current members. The company realized they needed a solution that was both robust to handle a large volume of messages as well as flexible enough to send individual confirmation emails to new subscribers. Faketown will also use Bolt for its viral email marketing campaigns, allowing new subscribers to send invitations to their friends to join the virtual world.

“We are very excited to be working with mobileStorm to implement their new Bolt solution within Faketown,” said Michelle Ogata, chief executive officer of Faketown. “The service provides us with robust features that would normally be out of our price range, while also providing us with the flexibility to scale as needed, which is extremely critical given the current stage of our business.”
“Faketown’s cutting edge service is a perfect example of the type of client we are seeking for our new Bolt platform,” said Jared Reitzin, chief executive officer of mobileStorm. “With Bolt, they can send both bulk marketing campaigns as well using our Transactional API for alerts and notifications to make sure such communications get through to the maximum number of people possible.
