LimeLife, Inc., the only mobile consumer software publisher focused exclusively on content for women, today announced the launch of its new online destination at www.limelife.com. The direct-to-consumer site extends the ways in which women can discover and purchase mobile content, including a wide selection of fashion wallpapers, subscriptions to lifestyle text messages, and a variety of entertaining games.
"We recognize the web's important role in driving women's awareness of mobile content," said Kristin McDonnell, CEO, LimeLife. "According to our survey, 30% of women who have downloaded content to their phones learned about that content through the web, making it one of the top three channels for discovery. In addition, over 30% of women who haven't downloaded mobile content say they cannot find any that appeals to them. With a focus on women's mobile lifestyles, LimeLife is leading the way by targeting the large untapped market of female consumers and introducing them to more ways to use their mobile phones."
In August 2006, LimeLife.com reached several hundred thousand monthly visitors, making it one of the most highly trafficked sites among mobile content publishers. LimeLife is marketing the new web site to female consumers in a number of ways including online advertising, search engine marketing, coverage in women's consumer magazines, targeted e-mails, and innovative promotional campaigns with wireless carriers and major consumer brands such as Procter & Gamble.
Industry approval continues from IDC (which named LimeLife as one of "Ten Emerging Wireless Players to Watch in 2006") where Scott Ellison, Program Director of Wireless and Mobile Communications, said: "Our research has found that women are early adopters of mobile content but have been underserved in a number of categories. LimeLife's expanded web site functionality and product offerings are important next steps in filling the void."
