AUSTIN, Texas, Feb. 01, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Lottery.com Inc. (Nasdaq: LTRY, LTRYW) (“Lottery.com” or the “Company”), a leading technology company that is transforming how, where and when the lottery is played, announced that it has launched LotteryLink, an important branding initiative of its global B2B affiliate marketing. This branding is a continuation of Lottery.com’s strategy to utilize highly recognizable and descriptive names and domains to reach its global digital audience and leverage the Company’s strong affiliate marketing capabilities.
The Company has a pipeline of both online and physical affiliates it anticipates will be important contributors to LotteryLink in 2022. As an example, one of its master affiliates has developed a customized program specifically focused on brick-and-mortar retailers promoting their customers’ purchase of Lottery.com products. A pilot of this program was launched in December 2021 with one of the nation’s largest grocery retailers.
Additionally, the Company launched B2C customer marketing campaigns in December 2021. With a focus on leveraging Lottery.com’s recognizable brand, these campaigns are utilizing multiple media channels, including targeted digital ads and search engine optimization to reach new users. An example of these ads can be viewed here. The Company is funding these campaigns with cash on hand, including $30 million received from the previously announced sale of prepaid advertising credits in the third quarter of 2021. The Company expects to drive B2C user growth in 2022 with this direct-to-consumer marketing in addition to growth generated by LotteryLink.
“We are aggressively working to grow our user base while maintaining a sharp focus on capital discipline,” said Tony DiMatteo, CEO and Co-Founder of Lottery.com. “I believe that the combination of LotteryLink’s ability to expand our user base with limited marketing spend and our favorable customer acquisition costs in our B2C segment puts us in a position to grow profitability.
