Inuvo® (NYSE MKT formerly NYSE Amex: INUV), an Internet marketing and technology company specialized in marketing browser-based consumer applications, managing networks of website publishers and operating specialty websites, announced today that the Company has recently expanded marketing of the alOt Appbar and Home Page in Argentina, Venezuela, Colombia, and Chile, attracting a live user base of approximately 640,000 users. Brazil, the Company’s second largest user base after the United States, has over 1.4 million live users of the alOt Appbar and Homepage.
“Inuvo has had a strong history of success in attracting and monetizing users in South America,” stated Peter Corrao, President and Chief Executive Officer of Inuvo, Inc. “We decided to further penetrate the South American market based on our Company’s success with the alOt Appbar in Brazil, which has a total of 1.4 million live users. Argentina, Venezuela, Colombia, and Chile already have approximately 640,000 live users, and we look forward to continuing to garner and retain users in these developing economies.”
Following these new market expansions in South America, as well as those in Turkey, Italy, and Russia announced last month, Inuvo now operates the alOt Appbar and associated marketing efforts in 26 countries and 7 languages. New users are attracted by the hundreds of free, simple-to-use, and easy to access applications in the alOt Appstore. These products, which offer full search capabilities, are primarily monetized by users typing in search and clicking on pay per click ads.
Live users are defined as the number of unique alOt Appbar users active on the Internet in the 15-day period prior to the measurement date. The live user count measures active individual unique installations of the alOt Appbar and does not include more than one count per installation.About Inuvo, Inc. Inuvo®, Inc.
