DALLAS, March 27, 2014 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Blue Calypso, Inc., (OTCBB:BCYP), developer of digital innovation intellectual property, products and services, executed a campaign to increase membership and convention attendees via SOCIALECHO™ and was chosen to run DashTAGG™ as the official mobile gamification platform at the Association of Network Marketing Professionals (ANMP) International Convention in Dallas, March 27 - 30.
"Social amplification and gamification have become increasingly important avenues for brands to engage communities and reach new audiences," said ANMP President Garrett McGrath. "Blue Calypso's social marketing technology will help us increase awareness and excitement about our historic 10th annual convention and grow our membership. First, at this year's international convention in Dallas, DashTAGG will create fun interaction among attendees and deeper engagement with the training and events. Second, the SOCIALECHO digital word-of-mouth marketing will exponentially increase our number of members and attendees for next year through an easily implemented social media campaign that incentivizes our membership to share information about the conference using their social media networks. We believe it will provide a richer experience for everyone and help our mission to elevate our profession worldwide."
"We immediately saw the incredible value Blue Calypso's DashTAGG platform could bring to the ANMP's international convention in terms of getting the word out and creating engagement between attendees and their social networks," says Networking Times Editor in Chief Dr. Josephine Gross. "That's why we introduced this mobile gamification program to the ANMP and provided the sponsorship for the first campaign of its kind in the network marketing space."
"We are honored to partner with ANMP, the leading association for network marketing professionals, and Networking Times, the premier educational journal for network marketing professionals," said Bill Ogle, CEO of Blue Calypso.
