FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla., Jan. 7, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- WrapMail, Inc. (OTC: WRAP) announced today that it has released both a Contact Grabber and a Friends Inviter solution.
The Contact Grabber will enable users to send a message about WRAPmail or anything else in their own WRAP by simply selecting their email provider. WRAPmail's Contact Grabber works with any CSV file, Gmail, Yahoo, Windows Live/Hotmail, AOL, MSN, Windows Live Messenger, Lycos, Plaxo, mail.com, icq, GMX, AIM, Opera, Hushmail, Bigstring, WEB.DE, freenet, T Online, Rambler, mail.ru, ibox.com, Kodak Gallery, eVite, mynet, Googlewave, mail2world, FastMail, Indiatimes Mail, in.com, rediff, india.com and eolii.com.
The Friends Finder will enable users to send a message about WRAPmail or anything else to their Facebook, LinkedIn and/or Twitter Contacts.
"This release follows our recent release of a system that automatically creates a WRAP (an interactive email letterhead/stationery) from a Facebook profile and now these users can quickly update all contacts across all these platforms," says Rolv E. Heggenhougen, CEO of WRAPmail. The signup for an automated Facebook WRAP is at http://pro.wrapmail.com/wrapmaildotnet/signup/fblogin.aspx.
"We set out to find a way to spread WRAPmail quickly but as we developed these new solutions we quickly saw many other possible uses such as sending out Holiday Greetings, Announcements, Invitations, etc. and so we have not limited these tools just to WRAPmail users but made them available to anyone on the internet for free right from our home page," continues Heggenhougen.
The idea behind WRAPmail is to utilize the everyday realities that almost everyone has a website, social network site(s) and also sends emails every day. These emails can become complete marketing tools and help promote, brand, sell and cross-sell in addition to drive traffic to the websites and help conduct marketing research (through tracking analysis). WRAPmail is available for free (with 3rd party ads) or for a license fee. No routines change as users simply download a toolbar or route emails via Google or WRAPmail's servers. While the focus is on one-and one email, WRAPmail also offers an Enterprise solution where clients can send unlimited email campaigns using the same technology that avoids the RED X when emails arrive. Wrapmail's solutions are built so that recipients see images right away and are not as quick to discard the email due to the lack of seeing anything enticing or for being afraid of viruses when they would otherwise download the images.
Anyone can sign up for WRAPmail for free here: https://pro.wrapmail.com/signup/agreement.asp
WRAPmail's revenue models are Advertising Revenue through our own Ad Network where users can advertise in other user's emails (predominantly in the free user's emails), license fees from ad-free and Enterprise clients, per mail sent fee for email campaigns and Premium licensed Sports Team and Celebrity WRAP Sales to Fans.
WRAPmail charges advertisers a minimum of $0.005 per impression and $0.25 per click. There are a minimum of 7 ads in each email sent from free users so when we have successfully signed on advertisers each email generates a minimum of 3.5 cents revenue for WRAPmail. Our goal is to attract advertisers as volume grows with the following milestone targets:
- 10k users sending 10 emails each/day = $3,500/day revenue to WRAPmail
- 100k users sending 10 emails each/day = $35,000/day revenue to WRAPmail
- 1M users sending 10 emails each/day = $350,000/day revenue to WRAPmail
(1M users would represent <1% of total Facebook users)
We have no estimate whether and when these targets will be met, but we believe that the Facebook auto-WRAP solution combined with today's announcement could easily start feeding on itself as new signups let their Facebook friend know about WRAPmail.
WRAPmail will set aside a minimum of 10% of its advertising revenue to share with its free users with its goal that all free users make money every time they send an email.
Furthermore, WRAPmail helps search for missing children with every email sent by free users by incorporating an RSS feed from the Center for Missing and Exploited Children – see Huffington Post article by clicking here.

We all know the latest numbers: Gartner, Inc. forecasts that 6.4 billion connected things will be in use worldwide in 2016, up 30 percent from last year, and will reach 20.8 billion by 2020. We're rapidly approaching a data production of 40 zettabytes a day – more than we can every physically store, and exabytes and yottabytes are just around the corner. For many that’s a good sign, as data has been proven to equal money – IF it’s ingested, integrated, and analyzed fast enough. Without real-ti...

I wanted to gather all of my Internet of Things (IOT) blogs into a single blog (that I could later use with my University of San Francisco (USF) Big Data “MBA” course). However as I started to pull these blogs together, I realized that my IOT discussion lacked a vision; it lacked an end point towards which an organization could drive their IOT envisioning, proof of value, app dev, data engineering and data science efforts. And I think that the IOT end point is really quite simple…

Early adopters of IoT viewed it mainly as a different term for machine-to-machine connectivity or M2M. This is understandable since a prerequisite for any IoT solution is the ability to collect and aggregate device data, which is most often presented in a dashboard. The problem is that viewing data in a dashboard requires a human to interpret the results and take manual action, which doesn’t scale to the needs of IoT.
