Vlassified.com and New Legacy Mobile Announce Exclusive Deals for Independent Retailer Month

Online video classified website supports small business during Independent Retailer Month to grow consumer outreach.

New York, NY, June 17, 2011 --(PR.com)-- Vlassified, an online video classified website, and New Legacy Mobile (NLM), a mobile text marketing company, proudly announce their celebration of Independent Retailer Month, July 2011, through a contest offering up to $3,000 worth of marketing tools. In addition, every contestant will automatically receive one year free to a Vlassified business profile which includes 3 free video classifieds per month to market their business.

Independent Retailer Month is the collaboration of Nolcha, the award-winning global platform advancing the business of independent fashion, and Profits Plus, the independent retail education organization and creators of Independent Retailer Week.

Vlassified and NLM recognize the challenges that many independent retailers face on a continuing basis. Their involvement with the month-long event highlights the importance of both companies’ initiatives to help transform independent retailers into brands that can better serve their communities.

Vlassified.com was formed to help small businesses create and share video advertisements on the web to market their products or services.

“Video is a powerful tool for promoting a business, its potential is limitless. It helps to create buzz about their business through word-of-mouth and social media, which is even more commanding,” said Stephen Meyers, Co-Founder of Vlassified.com. “Video is a great way to set your business apart while giving it a personal touch. It really allows you to connect with your customers on a different level and we’re excited to offer video to help independent retailers communicate their message,” Mr. Meyers added.

While Vlassified.com is focused on a business’ online presence, New Legacy Mobile targets consumers through a medium that most everyone carries with them every day, their cell phone. Text messages have become increasingly popular among cell phone users in recent years and have a 99% open and read rate across the United States making it an extremely viable marketing tool.

“Text messages are nothing new. However, the applications and benefits of mobile text marketing are only now starting to be realized. New Legacy Mobile offers retailers the opportunity to help reach their existing customer base and further establish a strong community presence for their business,” said Aron Schoenfeld, Managing Partner of New Legacy Mobile.

Vlassified is encouraging all independent retailers to create a video to promote their specials and spread their message throughout Independent Retailer Month.
