NEW YORK, NY -- (Marketwired) -- 04/23/14 -- VizConnect, Inc. (OTCQB: VIZC) a publicly traded mobile marketing firm, has released its 10-K filing for year-ending Dec. 31, 2013, along with a Letter to Shareholders. Both articles are available for viewing through the company website at vizconnect.com (http://www.vizconnect.com).
In the Letter to Shareholders, VizConnect CEO Paul Cooleen describes 2013 as "a year of growth and advancement," and outlines the vision for the future of the company within the ever-expanding mobile marketing space.
VizConnect is a mobile marketing services firm that provides small and medium-sized businesses with the tools and services to create branded Text-to-Video and dynamic QR code marketing solutions. Founded in 2011, the Massachusetts-based firm brings mobile marketing opportunities to entrepreneurs by removing the two largest barriers; cost and technological expertise.
The company's proprietary video marketing platform is designed to position the company at the intersection of the consumer's desire to utilize mobile and the market's rush to adapt to those needs. The products and services remove two of the great barriers to entry in this space; cost and technological ability.
In his letter, Cooleen explains how the VizConnect platform allows companies to integrate traditional print media with mobile Text-to-Video messages, activate and optimize their web portals, and build mobile marketing databases. The dynamic, cloud-based marketing tool has small business applications, enterprise solutions for large companies, and white-label opportunities for marketing and communications firms.
The platform gives businesses of all sizes the capability to enhance their brand imaging through cutting-edge mobile marketing initiatives while also building a mobile database to utilize for opt-in, push marketing campaigns.
Cooleen notes that the company achieved three specific benchmarks in the last year;
- 1300% increase in sales over FY2012
- New focus on large-scale enterprise solutions
- Development of potentially-lucrative white label partnerships
While VizConnect continues to generate revenue from small business monthly subscriptions, the company consciously shifted focus to new revenue streams in 2013, monetizing key corporate relationships to develop large-scale enterprise solutions and embark on potentially-lucrative white-label partnerships.
Cooleen goes on to say that VizConnect is looking forward to opening new markets and new verticals, expanding on a client base that covers industries from retail, to consumer goods, advertising, and entertainment.
"VizConnect is positioned at the forefront of the mobile video market with a low-cost, cloud-based mobile solution for small to mid-sized companies," he said. "We are also committed to bring new technologies to the fold to expand both reach and depth in the marketplace."

More and more brands have jumped on the IoT bandwagon. We have an excess of wearables – activity trackers, smartwatches, smart glasses and sneakers, and more that track seemingly endless datapoints. However, most consumers have no idea what “IoT” means. Creating more wearables that track data shouldn't be the aim of brands; delivering meaningful, tangible relevance to their users should be. We're in a period in which the IoT pendulum is still swinging. Initially, it swung toward "smart for smar...
