BETHESDA, MARYLAND--(Marketwired - Jan. 8, 2015) - Snipp Interactive Inc. ("Snipp") (TSX VENTURE:SPN), an international provider of mobile marketing solutions listed on the TSX Venture Exchange (Trading Symbol: SPN), announced today the launch of eleven programs over the past four weeks, the most it has launched in any month so far. The campaigns span multiple different industries and of the eleven campaigns, nine are for existing Snipp clients, a testament to the strength and efficacy of the platform.

"We are off to a strong start for 2015 and have plenty more to look forward to," said Atul Sabharwal, CEO of Snipp. "I am pleased that we continue to prove out the scalability of our platform by seamlessly launching more and more campaigns every month, but I am even more thrilled that nine of the eleven campaigns we just launched are for existing clients. That's the best validation of our solutions that I could have hoped for."

Below are brief descriptions of each of the campaigns. For contractual and competitive reasons, Snipp does not usually disclose the names of its clients on public releases.

A top French beauty brand, that has run previous SnippCheck receipt-based promotions within its family of brands, has launched a retailer-specific cross-portfolio offer for their top retail partner.
