BOSTON--(Business Wire)--
Paid, Inc. (OTCBB:PAYD) and FreeCause (www.FreeCause.com) have signed an
agreement to add FreeCause`s branded toolbar, shopping mall, and loyalty rewards
program to Paid Inc.`s celebrity services offerings. This forward-thinking
social marketing strategy will enable Paid to further fortify its ability to
build fan loyalty, customer satisfaction, site traffic, page views and
client-brand awareness. 

Boston-based FreeCause is the industry leading online loyalty marketing company.
The FreeCause solutions monetize internet users` day to day activities, while
also building brand awareness and strengthening brand loyalty. The actions that
monetize deliver significant rewards to users - creating a positive relationship
between fan and team, supporter and charity, traveler and airline. 

"FreeCause`s branded toolbar and search applications translate into powerful
marketing and loyalty tools for our business," said Keith Garde, Paid, Inc.
celebrity services President. "These best of class loyalty marketing
applications will help us maximize reach and impact across the span of social
media - reaching millions of eyeballs and energizing our clients` growing
communities of ever more loyal fans." 

"We are very impressed by FreeCause`s execution of this concept and confident
that we`re joining forces with a partner who has gotten it right, not just
technologically but in the messages and mission they embrace," Garde noted. "As
we establish our position as an innovator in social media marketing for the
entertainment, sports and music industries, this alliance with FreeCause
dovetails with our strategy for growth and further strengthens our ability to
engage larger numbers of fans on a continuing basis with the kind of value
propositions that cement their loyalty." 

The FreeCause Loyalty Program, related messaging and interactive content will be
offered via the Paid Inc.-managed celebrity web sites and communicated to
growing lists of avid fans. Paid will work with FreeCause to define the desired
look of each free downloadable toolbar as well as the available search actions,
reward program, and related information flow. 

Aerosmith`s Aero Force One fan community, RunDMC (www.RunDMC.com), The
Professional Bull Riders (www.TeamPBR.com) and veteran rockers Deep Purple
(www.deep-purple.com) are among the Paid clients who will immediately adopt
these revolutionary new engagement tools. 

Aero Force One has launched its FreeCause search toolbar that features the
Aeropoints Rewards Program that is totally free! Now when fans search the web
using the toolbar, they earn Aeropoints that give them a chance to win awesome
Aerosmith Rock N` Raffle prizes like a phone call from a band member, free
concert tickets, backstage tours and merchandise. 

"Paid, Inc., with its high-profile clients, is an ideal partner for FreeCause in
the entertainment industry," said Michael Jaconi, Vice President of FreeCause.
"They are among the first to implement such a broad range of social media tools
for their clients` fan communities. These clients, from rock stars to hip hop
legends, will drive increased traffic to their sites, capture previously
unrealized revenue streams, and remain on the cutting-edge of online loyalty
solutions." 

Fans that download the toolbar will be given exclusive access to special,
personalized messages from the celebrities that they admire, and will be able to
take advantage of great deals from over 2,000 e-commerce sites in the
custom-branded FreeCause Shopping Mall. These retailers represent the top
e-commerce sites from travel sites like Expedia to shopping hubs like eBay, and
present fans with a great opportunity to save and be rewarded for their daily
purchases.
