Myxer Launches Retail Store Ad Giveaway

In a twist on the usual mobile advertising program, Myxer, the ad-supported mobile content company, today launched a $5 Million Giveaway Campaign that offers $5,000 worth of free online advertising to 1,000 independent cell phone stores—totaling $5 million over the next 12 months. The giveaway includes banner creation, banner placements and other details, and is targeted towards each cell phone store’s specific geographic area.

In trade for the free advertising, participating retailers are required to promote Myxer via countertop displays in each store. The company said in a statement that stores will be selected on a first-come, first-serve basis until 1,000 stores have joined the program, which the company expects to happen by December 1st, 2008 or thereabouts.
