FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE:
Snapjackwireless.com is Changing the Game in Online Sales of Wireless Devices
New website offers brand-name devices at affordable prices with no contract required
Ann Arbor, MI – August 19, 2010 - Snapjack Wireless today announced the launch of snapjackwireless.com, an online store that provides cell phone users with a better way to purchase used and refurbished mobile phones and new accessories. Customers enjoy significant savings on quality brand-name devices without the requirement of lengthy cell phone contracts.
"With the growing number of cell phones that are being discarded and reprocessed each year - and the long-term carrier contracts that users are tied into, we knew there was an opportunity to meet consumers’ needs while also helping the environment.” said Brent Oliver, president of Snapjack Wireless.
SnapjackWireless.com immediately becomes an essential online resource for consumers looking to purchase mobile devices and accessories. From their initial visit to Snapjackwireless.com, customers will find brand-name devices, competitive pricing, and a high-quality user experience. The site enables consumers to replace their cellular phone or other wireless device without signing an extended or new long-term contract. The new accessories offered by Snapjack Wireless include everything from cases and chargers to batteries and headsets – and everything in between.
The game-changing user experience found at Snapjackwireless.com was designed by Grand River Interactive and is built using the Magento ecommerce platform. In addition to user experience and site build, Grand River produced all creative elements for the site as well as designing promotional marketing materials.
"Designing a site from the start allows us to take advantage of all the knowledge that we have gained from previous engagements and pour it into this project.” said Scott Robertson, Managing Partner of Grand River. "We believe in the environmentally friendly aspect of the business and we are pleased to offer our expertise to Snapjack Wireless in the development and design of its e-commerce site."
