NEW YORK, Oct. 1, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Kiwibox.com [KIWB.OTC] - Kiwibox and its German subsidiary KWICK! report a significant surge in their network usage. This major increase in membership and usage is a result of the Company's intensified focus on recent marketing efforts within local event strategies and promotional activities. Current network registrations exceed 100,000 new members per month and continue to climb daily. Recent internal reports show that the Kiwibox and KWICK! network registrations have increased dramatically by 200%. The network also continues to see solid growth in mobile usage which has soared from 200M Pageviews in (Q3/2012) to 300M Pageviews in (Q3/2013). Network usage has boosted income from mobile advertising by over 300% since Q1 and continues to rise. With 1/3 of the entire Kiwibox and KWICK! network logging in via their mobile devices, the Company has continued to follow the mobile trend and recently released new iphone and android apps with enhanced nightlife event features like Event Submissions, Friends Around and Event galleries.
The recent tandem of positive developments in mobile advertising revenue and network registrations, combined with reductions in expenditures appear increasingly promising for the future of the Kiwibox and KWICK! community and shareholders. Kiwibox CEO, Andre Scholz, observed, "Together with Anke Schmid, CEO of KWICK!, our German subsidiary, the integration was finalized in Q2 and the corresponding cuts in our operating expenses has enabled Kiwibox to save over $600,000 USD in the first months of 2013, as compared to the months results for 2012. Together with our recent Acquisition of interscholz Internet Services GmbH Co. KG we will have more potential to optimize internal procedures for faster development and technical scalability for further growth. Having our own internet service provider with an international capacity provides the Kiwibox Network with all necessary infrastructure to grow in an optimal way while keeping costs under control."
Both Kiwibox and KWICK! are in a unique position that combines the excitement of a dating community with the benefits and accessibility of a real social network. The Kiwibox network encourages members to explore local events in their area, connect with other members and enjoy the additional member exclusive benefits the social network has to offer.
