Expanded Smartphone Options Offer Added Efficiency for recycler.com’s Increasingly Mobile Customer Base
LOS Angeles–June 2, 2011–recycler.com today announced availability of m.recycler.com, a new version of the company’s online marketplace site developed specifically for users of the latest models of iPhone, Android and Blackberry smartphones. In addition to leveraging the mobile site, sellers in local markets can also use QR codes (short for Quick Response) or other 2D barcodes such as Microsoft Tag in recycler.com’s partner publications to allow customers to point to more digital details by quickly scanning and linking to recycler.com’s mobile listings.
At the time of releasing its mobile site, recycler.com has partnerships with more than 30 print publications which can provide ads to local readers that easily link to the mobile site using their phones.
“We see incredible potential for our mobile site coupled with 2D barcode based promotion as a natural extension of the online classifieds sales cycle,” said Josh Siegel, Senior Vice President and COO of recycler.com. “The codes allow smartphone users to quickly jump to an online ad or a store page with more ads from the seller, complete with details to help the buyers make their purchasing decisions—including maps, videos and more. As smartphone usage continues to skyrocket, we will continue to seek ways to provide innovations for our busy, on-the-go customers who want smart, local online marketplace options.”
“The recycler.com advertising solution helps our publication give readers the extra information that they crave, and it gives it to them quickly and easily,” said Tom Minogue of Autofocus, a Chicago area car publication. “We have already provided this novel solution to many of our key auto dealers and it has been met with great success. We expect continued interest from buyers and sellers alike in this mutually beneficial offering.”
“It’s so great that local shoppers can get access to see our store’s inventory on their smartphone anytime of day or night,” said Jeff Hritz from Wheels N Motion. “It’s important for me to reach local buyers quickly and easily, and recycler.com makes it fast and easy to generate visibility for my inventory on the latest smartphones.”
For local classifieds listings, any ad placed online will automatically be included on the mobile site.
