Adspace Rolls Out "Clip'd" Mobile Platform Nationally After Two Month Pilot

NEW YORK, Oct. 2, 2012

NEW YORK, Oct. 2, 2012 /PRNewswire/ --Adspace Networks, owner of the largest
in-mall digital advertising network in the country, has launched Clip'd, a
mobile platform that allows retailers to offer mobile coupons to shoppers just
steps from their stores.

In addition to in-store coupons, Clip'd also offers the best in-store sales in
the malls, and exclusive digital content from advertisers, including movie
trailers, new TV show previews and behind the scenes celebrity videos from
Lucky Magazine.

The app was initially launched in four pilot malls in July. A few of the
participants in the test and subsequent national launch of Clip'd include:
Macy's, Express, Stride Rite, Sears Portrait, Things Remembered, Solstice,
Crabtree & Evelyn, Aeropostale and Jos. A. Banks.

The app, available on iPhone and Android phones, can be downloaded via iTunes
and Google Play. It can also be downloaded with the help of Zoove's
"StarStar" system, by dialing "**CLIPD" to get the app downloaded directly to
a smart phone. Once downloaded, shoppers can select coupons from retailers and
send them to their mobile "wallet" for in-store redemption.

Promotion for the app includes 15 and 30 second spots on more than 1,700
high-definition screens on the Adspace Digital Mall Network. The spots show
shoppers how to download the app while promoting specific coupons with an
array of 15-second spots.

Joe Gillespie, President CEO of Zoove Corp. said, "The Clip'd downloads
performed very well, with strong end-to-end engagement and high activation
rates, comparable to some of the results we have seen with broadcast TV
campaigns. It is impressive that their in-store television advertising network
is able to leverage digital billboards to engage shoppers at such high rates.
In working with the StarStar platform, they are able to offer the added
benefit of real-time data to assess the impact of mobile marketing in
different locations, so we are enthusiastic to be working so closely with
Adspace Smart Screens."

Clip'd is available in 128 malls nationwide reaching 31 million unique viewers
per month.

"Clip'd is the foundation of our mobile strategy, giving mall shoppers
immediate access to the best values in our upscale malls," said Bill Ketcham,
executive vice president and CMO, Adspace Networks. "It is also a platform
for us to add tremendous value to our advertisers' ad campaigns on the Smart
Screens, from delivering digital video content to sending customers to a
microsite."
