Earth911 Media Revitalizes Brand, Website

Relaunch of Iconic Earth911.com Will Promote Audience Growth, Retention and Greater Revenue Opportunities for New Division of Earth911, Inc.

SCOTTSDALE, AZ -- (Marketwired) -- 04/17/13 -- Earth911 Media, a new division of Earth911, Inc., an Infinity Resources Holdings company (OTCQB: IRHC) (OTCBB: IRHC), recently announced the relaunch of its brand identity and redesigned website, Earth911.com.

The new flag logo and tagline, "More Ideas, Less Waste," place Earth911 Media in a position to revamp the way it connects with its readers and partners.

"One of the most important elements of this strategy shift for the Earth911 Media division is the leverage it provides the brand to stay ahead of the curve in the realm of partnerships and revenue generation," said President and COO of Earth911, Inc., Corey Lambrecht. "By re-orienting our message, tactics and design, we will remain flexible and responsive to the changing needs of the digital landscape."

"We wanted a site and branding that reflected who we have become and the values that are important to our company and visitors," said Earth911 Media's Vice President, Raquel Fagan. "Our new flag will help our readers unite under a common goal: to take a stand in the fight against waste and make real changes in their daily lives."

The update comes after an extensive research, design and testing process by Earth911's internal Media and Platform and Applications teams that highlighted creative and effective ways the site could better capture visitors' interests and integrate advertisers. Some of the changes include:

  • Lifestyle-based information architecture and navigation
  • Extensive social media sharing opportunities
  • New and increased in-line native content and advertising placements

"This is a fresh opportunity to relevantly connect our advertising partners with our visitors in all aspects of their daily lives, from work and home to food and style," added Fagan. "It's not enough to think about living a lower-waste lifestyle on occasion -- it's part of everything we do."

This holistic lifestyle integration is already showing its effectiveness. In 2012, Earth911.com visitors increased 53 percent, and pageviews rose by 59 percent. The improved layout and functionality will encourage this trend to continue.

"Our intuitive features make it easier than ever for readers to discover new content, share it with their own networks via social media and increase our word-of-mouth potential," said Tony Ash, director of platform and applications for Earth911, Inc. "We specifically designed for a great user experience that would also directly correlate with our monetization strategy."

The move to maximize Earth911.com and its content to accommodate readers' preferences and interests will not only make the brand stronger, but allow Earth911.com to offer that much more to partners in terms of audience, outreach and interaction.

"These design choices will encourage significant traffic and network growth for Earth911 Media, benefitting not only our readers but also our partners," said Fagan. "Our partnerships will be real-time, relevant and responsive, utilizing tools from affiliate marketing and native content to digital ads and social campaigns."

"'More Ideas, Less Waste' not only applies to the content on our site, it's our business model as well," she added.
