SAN FRANCISCO – September 14, 2021 – APPlife Digital Solutions, Inc. (OTCQB:ALDS) (“APPlife” or the “Company”), an e-commerce and cloud-based solutions provider for work, home, recreation, and research, today provided a strategic update on three of its proprietary e‑commerce platforms, Rooster Essentials, Office Hop, and B2BCHX.
Rooster Essentials is an e-commerce shopping platform that offers premium, curated men’s grooming products, including hair care, skin care, beard care and shaving tools. Office Hop allows businesses or property owners to list unoccupied office and meeting rooms through an online marketplace. B2BCHX offers background checks on Chinese companies, providing valuable due diligence through a third-party verification report.
The direct-to-consumer model is at the core of APPlife’s strategy for its portfolio businesses. APPlife is actively advancing its digital measurement tools to improve the marketing and advertising effectiveness of Rooster Essentials dedicated to the continued elevation of the brands’ digital transformation to drive consumer purchasing behavior and expand the customer’s experience across all digital channels. Recently, Rooster Essentials began expanding its presence by launching opportunistic marketing campaigns for seasons, holidays, or life events. For example, Rooster Essentials recently offered a 15% discount on its curated men’s grooming products as part of the “back-to-school” marketing initiative. Additional marketing campaigns are being rolled out each month. Through its end-to-end strategic marketing and advertising programs, Rooster Essentials is working to successfully drive customer acquisition, sales and retention by educating consumers, converting them to a sale, and retaining them through rewards and loyalty programs.
Mark Messina, APPlife’s Director of Digital Strategy & Marketing, said, “Defining and connecting with our target consumers online is the first step to creating a loyal customer. We are excited to have begun the implementation of our marketing and advertising campaigns for Rooster Essentials and the preliminary results have been positive. We expect to launch new marketing and advertising programs for both Office Hop and B2BCHX in the fourth quarter, focused on introducing and expanding these products and services into new domestic and international markets.”
Matthew Reid, APPlife’s Founder and Chief Executive Officer, said, “With our new Rooster Essentials marketing and advertising campaign underway and Office Hop and B2BCHX following close behind, we expect our lifestyle brands, products, and services will disrupt the men’s grooming, office space rental and background verification categories. As our preliminary marketing metrics show, our digital and social media campaigns are pushing our products in front of consumers in a very effective way. We are confident that our reach and data-capture will be instrumental in carrying out the steps of customer identification, education, conversion, and retention.”
