SANTA CLARA, CA, Apr 19 (Marketwire) -- LykeBox, a service that lets consumers follow all communication and deals from brands they like, was unveiled today at DEMO Spring 2012. LykeBox saves users time and money by aggregating all social messages from brands you follow, giving instant access to the latest deals and news across all channels. Deals from partners including REI, Threadless, Hotels.com, and BestBuy were featured in the launch. "With over 500 brands and growing, LykeBox will become the trusted app to stay connected to your favorite brands without overloading your inbox and social newsfeeds," said co-founder Reza Jalili. "Of course we're also developing LykeBox to run wherever you are, as a web app, a plugin to your email, and as a mobile app." IDG estimates that companies are spending billions to get Facebook likes, Twitter follows, and email subscribers, but consumers simply cannot keep an eye on Facebook, Twitter, and their inbox all day long. While the volume of marketing messages across email and social networks has increased to nearly 10 billion per week, the rate of interaction and ROI has decreased significantly. Matt Marshall, executive producer of DEMO, said, "I'm personally looking forward to trying LykeBox. This is a very interesting solution to a problem that millions of users experience." LykeBox automatically imports companies whose newsletters you receive in email, as well as those you like in Facebook and follow on twitter. This unique capability allows users to get great deals and rewards, while cleaning up their cluttered inboxes and social streams at the same time. "LykeBox gives our customers a 'DVR' for our communications and offers, maximizing exposure of our social media and commerce," said the Social Media Director at a LykeBox brand partner. "We believe that this has great potential as a communication vehicle for our customers and are excited to be a charter partner on LykeBox." LykeBox is currently in invitation-only beta testing.
