Palm Beach, FL 5/10/12 (StreetBeat) -- Liberator, Inc. (OTCBB: LUVU), a progressive, vertically integrated company capitalizing on the emerging sexual wellness revolution through the worldwide marketing of the Liberator® brand, today announced it has signed an agreement with One Pica, a leading digital commerce agency and top-tier Magento Gold Partner, to launch a comprehensive new online presence for Liberator.
As part of the agreement with One Pica, Liberator has selected theMagento Enterprise Platform to handle both the front and back-end side of the new Liberator.com along with four other web properties. The new site overhaul is expected to be rolled out in the fall of 2012.
"We are thrilled to announce our exciting online initiatives with One Pica as our system integration partner," said Louis Friedman, President and CEO of Liberator, Inc. "One Pica has been behind the successful implementations of several large scale projects, including those featured on Inc. Magazine's list of 500 fastest growing companies. As sexual wellness products continue to enter the mainstream, we look forward to implementing online strategies and social media initiatives with One Pica to capitalize on our industry's robust growth projections."
In a recent article published by London's Daily Mail, sexual wellness product sales have been reported as skyrocketing, in part due to larger mainstream awareness and stars such as Gwyneth Paltrow and Jane Fonda divulging their bedroom secrets about sex toys that would historically have been labeled as taboo. In fact, vibrator sales alone are set to become a USD $52 billion annual business by 2020, matching sales of the iPhone and Android, according to the article:http://www.dailymail.co.uk/femail/article-2140779/Sex-toys-worlds-favourite-gadget-global-sales-soar-400-million-rival-smartphones.html?ito=feeds-newsxml
Mr. Friedman continued, "With this week's news estimating that sex toys may soon become as popular as many smartphones, we believe Liberator is expanding our comprehensive online branding initiatives at exactly the right time."
The new web properties, powered by Magento, will give Liberator greater control over the content and presentation of the Liberator brand moving forward. The new software will also allow Liberator to enhance its social media awareness, as well as expand its ability to test and analyze exciting new marketing opportunities for the rapidly expanding sexual wellness market.
"Partners like One Pica clearly understand how to help their clients realize the benefits of an enterprise-level marketing and e-commerce engine," said Michael Kane, Executive Vice President of Liberator. "As we begin the development and rollout of our enhanced web properties we continue to be extremely excited about the significant growth prospects that we look to achieve in the future."
