Watsonville, CA (PRWEB) July 18, 2007
SpamFrit.Org, the leading source of Spam Reporting in the U.S. announced today the launch of BrandFlic™, a web-based subscription service that enables brand managers to track email campaigns for both authorized and unauthorized uses of their products and brands. The service provides 24/7 monitoring of spam; customized e-mail alerts of brand usage and unique online reports identifying both the origins of brand usage and the sites that ultimately benefit from the brand usage. BrandFlic™ is accessed via the http://www.SpamFrit.org website.
"Ad agencies are unlikely to tell clients that a recent a survey suggests that nine out of 10 e-mail users are frustrated with spam, AND that consumers do not differentiate between unsolicited email sent by bona fide ad agencies and illegal spam, which puts famous names or global brands at risk," said Peter Mackeonis, Director of SpamFrit.org.
The patented BrandFlic™ service actively attracts and analyzes email and spam campaigns to create unique corporate pages, providing brand managers with details of exactly how their brands are being used; who originated the email and who is benefiting from the traffic marketers. According to Mackeonis,"U.S. corporations may be surprised to find that it is not only foreign companies that are exploiting famous American brands. U.S.-based websites are also guilty of using brands such as Coca Cola, Pepsi, NBC, K-Mart, Coach, Prada, Starbucks, Ford, Burger King and McDonalds in unsolicited email to take consumers to misleading sites for profit. It's time for responsible U.S. companies to start policing their brands to help lower spam levels."
BrandFlic™ can be purchased by credit card on the SpamFrit web site as a monthly or annual subscription stating at $495 per month - sample reports are available at http://spamfrit.org/OurService.html.
SpamFrit.org is the leading source of spam reporting and information in the U.S. and the only online company to identify which U.S. websites are benefiting from unsolicited email campaigns - see http://spamfrit.org/corpOurService.html. SpamFrit.org aims to limit the amount of unsolicited email sent by notifying corporations of the unauthorized use of their brand names and products in unsolicited email and by identifying any U.S. companies benefiting from illegal brand abuse - a current list of US corporations featuring in recent spam can be found at http://spamfrit.org/TheList.html.
Mackeonis, a computer industry pioneer who co-founded UK-based pc systems software house MetaComCo in the 80's, emphasizes that SpamFrit would like to hear from not only corporations, but also the web's major email carriers, such as Google, Microsoft and YAHOO, and network carriers to help reduce the amount of spam transmitted daily. Mackeonis can be reached by email at firstname.lastname@example.org and by telephone on +1.831.840.3729.
