College Park, Md. – Goozex, Inc., the #1 online video game and movie trading site, has partnered with Bitmob Media, a premier community-focused gaming editorial website, to deliver the best of both services to their core audiences.
Besides exposing each site’s audience to both the value Goozex provides gamers for their trade-in games and unique editorial content Bitmob and its community produce, this partnership brings a number of additional benefits. These include monthly big-ticket contests sponsored by Goozex, a regular top 10 list hosted on Bitmob that shows which games are in demand, some future content trading, and a promo code for three free trade tokens for gamers who join Goozex through Bitmob.
The Goozex trading service is based on a proprietary peer-to-peer technology that connects members across the country to trade their video games and movies using a virtual currency. Goozex users trade their items for the best market value anywhere online and use the virtual currency earned to get many more items for only $1 each. The Goozex trading model allows video game players and their families to have significant savings. Goozex is a free-to-join website.
Monthly promotions to support the partnership start on August 2, 2010. The first Goozex-sponsored prize sweepstakes for Bitmob readers will be to win the highly anticipated Xbox 360 Halo: Reach Console Bundle. Bitmob members will be able to enter the contest by joining Goozex with the coupon code: BITMOB. The coupon will grant new users three free tokens to use on their first three Goozex trades. No purchase is necessary for the promotion and the official rules can be found here:
Dan “Shoe” Hsu, co-founder of Bitmob.com, commented on the partnership. “We’re very excited to be partnering up with Goozex. They’re pros at what they do, and with our strong community at Bitmob, we knew it’d be a great fit. Our users already discuss and analyze games with each other; trading is just the next logical step. Plus...Goozex has a pretty kick-ass (and weird!) name that we are strangely drawn to.”
“We really like the approach Bitmob is taking with online video game editorial and how they let their community participate,” said Mark Nebesky, CMO and co-founder of Goozex. Nebesky continued, “Our core audience is made up of hardcore gamers. They live and breathe everything about gaming. We’re excited to work with Bitmob because it makes sense to the members that drive our business.”
