    iHookup Social (OTCQB: HKUP), Submits New Version of Its Top Ranked App to Apple App Store



    CAMPBELL, CA, United States, via eTeligis Inc., 07/29/2014 - - iHookup Social, Inc. (OTCQB: HKUP), a mobile application positioned at the intersection of dating, social media and location based connections, is pleased to announce the submission of its latest feature-rich version of the Company's popular dating app to the Apple App Store. The new app provides both a bounty of dynamic new features to enrich the user experience and expands partner opportunities while installing important monetization infrastructure through a method referred to by the company as "social commerce."



    Through the distribution of localized offers, iHookup adapts business locations and venues to promote connections that inspire real world Hookup's within its member community. Via this process, the Company has created a new revenue line that creates 'social commerce.'



    "Since our inception, including local venues to promote Social Commerce has been a primary goal of iHookup Social," said Robert Rositano Jr., CEO, iHookup Social. "While we have built more quickly than our wildest expectations a network of connected users engaged in traditional dating monetization lines such as subscriptions and membership, we believe adding Social Commerce to the app and revenue algorithm is imperative."



    "Social means more than just dating when you think of our brand, it means getting inspired to get our app and mix it up with rest of the community. With the submission of this new app release, we are prepared to bring new venue relationships to our platform to enhance the user experience and expand venue monetization opportunities. iHookup uniquely looks to provide a member with options, a new connection, a date and/or a venue local to them," added Rositano.



    The new app release includes important enrichments to the User Experience including enhanced chat with inline sharing to other users, enhanced hookup requests, and a great new ice-breaking 'socialize' feature which allows users to broadcast their desire to connect based on locality.



    Additionally, the app offers thematic and style changes for a fresher, cleaner experience as well as a more intuitive User Interface. Users can also now select from a broader set of virtual gifts to exchange with other users, representing a much wider spectrum of emotions to allow the perfect icebreaker.



    Perhaps most compelling among the array of new futures is the GPS and Zip Code driven location technology which allows users to search, connect and recommend venues based on their current location, creating real time connection opportunities.

    iHookup (HKUP) to Adapt New App Release for Apple Watch

    iHookup (HKUP) to Adapt New App Release for Apple Watch



    CAMPBELL, CA, United States, via ETELIGIS INC., 09/10/2014 - - iHookup Social, Inc. (OTCQB: HKUP), a mobile application positioned at the intersection of dating, social media and location-based connections, is pleased to announce its integration initiative to release a streamlined version of its iHookup app to be compatible with "Apple Watch TM," which was announced September 9, 2014 during Apple's annual "Apple Key Note" address.



    Wearable technology is a relatively new category that is opening additional opportunities for new social connections, focusing on quick and easy to view features that help improve the experience for users on the go. James McQuivey, a consumer technology analyst for Forrester Research, reported that the Apple Watch had already accomplished one thing, even though it will not be in stores for a while. "It has firmly established the smartwatch as a category, one with unique properties requiring a unique solution as opposed to a miniature smartphone pushed down onto your wrist," he said.



    "With Apple's recent announcement of its new "Apple Watch TM" we see many new opportunities to expand our market and build engagement. With the current growth of our iPhone app, wearable tech or "wearable apps" are a category we must embrace," said Robert Rositano Jr., CEO, iHookup Social. "Our app has expanded beyond dating in recent weeks and now incorporates location based recommendations. Today's announcement provides a unique opportunity for our company to be a first mover, allowing us to integrate and release our app upon the release of Apple's new and revolutionary "Apple Watch" due to ship in early 2015.



    "These powerful devices worn on the body, allow the iHookup app to deliver a new experience on a very personal screen, catering to singles with yet another option for those looking to maintain their dating and social lives without the need to constantly check their mobile device or computers," added Rositano.

    iHookup Social (HKUP) Extends Marketing Efforts With Launch of Venue Targeted Marketing Initiative



    CAMPBELL, CA--(Marketwired - Sep 24, 2014) - iHookup Social, Inc.

Opportunities and incentives are now available for users to offer up a venue based meeting spot or location, sponsored by a participating venue via coupons or other promotions.

    "After months of growing our user base and with our venue based marketing collateral now finalized, we are excited to embark on yet another opportunity to drive real social engagement or interaction that translates beyond the virtual connections made in our app. This adds a new dynamic to what can sometimes be an awkward transition from a virtual connection and provides local options for a real life meeting or hookup, so to speak," said Robert Rositano Jr., CEO, iHookup Social. "We are intent on inspiring face-to-face connections at venues and extending additional revenue opportunities for the company."

    "In addition to providing a genuine, efficient means to connect to other socially active users, we are pleased to bring the opportunity full-circle by providing a place to connect with a business that greatly values these introductions," added Rositano. "In this case we are both the matchmaker and the concierge in this social equation and frankly, we believe this level of service to our users is unprecedented. These venues may sponsor a promotion or simply begin paying for the coupon or offer upon redemption."

    To expedite the circle of commerce, iHookup has perfected both a marketing video and sales brochure to be used in the attraction of various venues.

    Facebook Approves iHookup Social (HKUP) App For App Center Inclusion

    Facebook Approves iHookup Social (HKUP) App For App Center Inclusion



    CAMPBELL, CA, United States, via ETELIGIS INC., 10/27/2014 - - iHookup Social, Inc. (OTC Pink: HKUP) (PINKSHEETS: HKUP), a mobile social app that enables singles, groups and the socially active to connect quickly and efficiently, offering local, real life hookup opportunities, is pleased to announce its app has been approved directly by Facebook for inclusion in its exclusive App Center and is now live for immediate download. This is the first venue expansion for the Company after building its growing user base exclusively in the iTunes App Store.



    Facebook describes its App Center as a central place on Facebook for people to find great social apps. Once an app has earned high user ratings and engagement in places like iTunes, companies may submit their apps for App Center listing and subsequent exposure. Facebooks app center is designed to show off high quality apps with great user experiences, Facebook makes no representations or assurances that any app will be granted approval (Source: Facebook)



    The continued effort of our team to deliver a superior app and user experience has truly been validated by this latest approval, added Rositano. We take great pride that amid a myriad of choices for the Facebook App Center, the iHookup Social app was approved and has met the standards of the largest brand in the social marketplace.



    As with our initial introduction months ago to iTunes itself, we pledge to continue to provide the exceptional level of quality, usability, features and engagement that Facebook requires in its standards, added Rositano. We are a young company with a total of 386,000+ users (as of 10/1/14) this Facebook inclusion provides access to a larger, more connected community and we believe Facebooks inherently viral network presents a tremendous opportunity.

    iHookup Social (HKUP) Reaches Top 10 in Apple App Store Paid Apps

    iHookup Social (HKUP) Reaches Top 10 in Apple App Store Paid Apps



    CAMPBELL, CA, United States, via ETELIGIS INC., 10/30/2014 - - iHookup Social, Inc. (OTC Pink: HKUP) (PINKSHEETS: HKUP), a mobile/social app that enables singles, groups and the socially active to connect quickly and efficiently, offering local, real life hook-up opportunities, is pleased to announce that the Companys app has reached #9 on the highly competitive Paid App category for Social Networking in the United States. The ascension in the rankings is the iHookup Socials highest to date and places it well above some of the preeminent brands in the mobile social dating marketplace.



    We are very pleased to see the App rise to a top 10 ranking among paid apps in our category, stated Robert Rositano, CEO, iHookup Social. This rise in ranking through a period of strategy adjustment for the company is most notable and can be attributed to the companys focus on organic growth and virility of the mobile-social dating category, along with our ongoing test media, a reduced advertising spend and our further refinement of our in-app pricing model.



    Macintosh HD:Users:dean:Desktop:pR_Final.png



    The Company has also announced that beginning October and for the remainder of Q4 2014, the Company has shifted a portion of its resources from acquisition of downloads to bolstering SEO, adding social marketing efforts, adding venue based offers as well as testing additional channels of public relations outreach. The Companys mobile media partner and strategic advisor, Deep Forest Media, has strongly encouraged the Company to focus on community development and engagement, versus paying the greatly increased advertising rates for app marketing in the final three months of the year. App marketing prices rise sharply in Q4, driven by major retailers and holiday ad buys by the industry top brands.



    While this strategic diversion of Company resources may reduce our download and registered user growth during the period, it also allows us to enhance features and target locally recognized events to engage our current community of iHookup Social users, stated Rositano. Our recent inclusion on Facebooks App Center is one venue which we firmly believe requires additional attention and resources. Avoiding an over spend during the holidays affords us an opportunity to take advantage of the tremendous Facebook opportunity and to prepare for a focused effort moving toward Valentines Day and the first quarter.

    HKUP - App Downloads Reach 58,852 Downloads for October, Registered User Count Now Tops 422,000



    CAMPBELL, CA, United States, via ETELIGIS INC., 11/04/2014 - - iHookup Social, Inc. (OTC Pink: HKUP) (PINKSHEETS: HKUP), a mobile/social app that enables singles, groups and the socially active to connect quickly and efficiently, offering local, real life hook-up opportunities, is pleased to provide user growth statistics for October of 2014.



    For the month of October, the Company showed continued member growth by adding 58,852 new downloads of the iHookup Social app, as reported by the Apple App Store. To date, the company has now surpassed 422,439 registered users, the vast majority of which have come in 2014 alone. As previously reported, iHookup has chosen to reduce certain mobile advertising spends from October through year end, when advertising premiums currently being driven up by holiday retail spending tapers off.



    I am pleased to have had nearly 60,000 new downloads in a month where we chose to significantly reduce our spending on front end user acquisitions in favor of investing in additional engagement testing, price point modifications and overall feature enhancements that have proven to increase our conversion rates from a download to an actual registered user, stated Robert Rositano, CEO, iHookup Social. Our internal metrics are showing an immediate pay-off in our strategy for this fourth quarter, confirming for the month of October weve received more registered users on less downloads, with a 17% increase in this one metric alone.



    Perhaps most importantly, I believe we are absolutely in line, if not ahead of our previously stated goal of reaching a half-million users. (Article dated: June 18, 2014) in the WallStreet Cheat Sheets quotes The Company recently passed the 200,000 user mark and aims to get past 250,000 near term and half a million (500,000) users by the end of the year.
