The idea behind WRAPmail’s email marketing approach is to utilize the everyday realities that almost everyone has a website, social network site(s) and also sends emails every day. These emails can become complete marketing tools and help promote, brand, sell and cross-sell in addition to drive traffic to the websites and help conduct marketing research (through tracking analysis). WRAPmail is available for free (with 3rd party ads) or for a license fee. No routines change as users simply download a toolbar for their webmail or route emails via Google or WRAPmail’s servers. While the focus is on one-and one email, WRAPmail also offers an Enterprise solution where clients can send unlimited email campaigns using the same technology that avoids the RED X when emails arrive. Wrapmail’s solutions are built so that recipients see images right away and are not as quick to discard the email due to the lack of seeing anything enticing or for being afraid of viruses when they would otherwise download the images.
WRAPmail’s revenue models are Advertising Revenue through our own Ad Network where users can advertise in other user’s emails (predominantly in the free user’s emails), license fees from ad-free and Enterprise clients, custom WRAP design (free if the user uses WRAPmail’s built-in WRAPmaker), per mail sent fee for email campaigns and Premium licensed Sports Team and Celebrity WRAP Sales to Fans.
WRAPmail is a Google Apps vendor and also compatible with Google Analytics.
WRAPmail also offers an automated solution where users can sign up with their Facebook account and have a WRAP automatically created based on their profile.

About 2,100 children go missing in the U.S. every single day. This is a huge problem that screams for innovative methods in the effort to find them and find them fast. I am a parent and as such I can only imagine the pain parents of missing children go through. They try everything within their means but sadly enough; most do not have much means.
The U.S. Department of Justice* reports:
• 797,500 children (younger than 18) were reported missing in a one-year period of time studied resulting in an average of 2,185 children being reported missing each day.
• 203,900 children were the victims of family abductions.
• 58,200 children were the victims of non-family abductions.
Not a single day goes by without a story in the media about someone missing, but the few that do get featured are but a fraction of all that currently are missing. It is also interesting to note that the ones covered in the media tend to be of affluent parents and photogenic, to say the least. Cases go on for years and years and even the other day I got an email about “Maggie” who went missing five years ago in Portugal.
In the “old” days the missing were featured on milk cartons but they typically had been missing for quite some time before they were featured. When I used to get the electric bill via “snail-mail” it had one or two missing persons on it but now I am paperless, all bills come via email. Hmm… Maybe email could help us search?
There are many very good efforts, from nonprofits to for-profit corporations. The Center for Missing and Exploited Children (CMEC) has an RSS feed (a free news-style feed) of all the missing and Amber Alerts and do a great job in getting data out very fast. “A Child is Missing” is also a great system in use by many states using SMS to alert locals about someone gone missing.
Very soon after I founded WRAPmail, (OTC: WRAP) I realized that our technology could be used for something good. I think the constant news about missing children and what we developed somehow connected in my head. The concept behind WRAPmail is to turn regular one-on-one emails into marketing and branding for the sender’s company or the senders themselves. It was a simple idea conceived from the fact that we all have websites (corporate or social) and we all use email on a daily basis. WRAPmail adds a dynamic and interactive letterhead around these emails with embedded links back to senders’ website(s). I did a little research and found the RSS feed from the CMEC and asked our programmers if we could not take that feed and feed it directly into emails sent by our users. Sure enough, they figured out a way to do this and today every email sent by any of our employees, any free WRAPmail client and any other client who opts in now features one missing child with an embedded link back to CMEC, where those that click can find more information.
WRAPmail is for-profit, but if we also can do something good, why not? My thinking was pretty simple: Featuring more children should increase the chance of finding more. Technology makes us able to insert these impressions the second they are available from CMEC. Imagine how many could be featured if, for example, all emails sent by a government employee featured one missing child. What if large organizations did the same? We are coming close to an election where billions of dollars are or will be spent, among the expenditures are emails sent by politicians, staff and party organizations and each one could feature a missing child.
Think about it. You get an email from someone you know, what if that email had an image of a missing child and you saw this just before stepping out to lunch? The chances that you would see this child on your way to or from lunch as miniscule, but what IF? What if we all were exposed to these images? I say the chances of finding more would increase.

The Automotive Resource Network (TheARN) today signed a license agreement with WRAPmail (OTC: WRAP) for WRAPmail’s Enterprise Solution Software hosted on a dedicated server by WRAPmail.
“We are very excited to have TheARN come onboard to use our solution for creating interactive email stationery for all of their agents. This will enable TheARN agents to brand and market their offerings with every email they send and also help drive traffic to each agent’s independent ARN website” said Rolv Heggenhougen, CEO of WRAPmail. WRAPmail Enterprise is a dedicated server solution hosted by WRAPmail which includes full webmail, WRAPmaker, Reporting and a Campaign module.
“It’s all about differentiation in a competitive environment and us being able to have all our representatives market our products and services with every email they send is very exciting. WRAPmail’s interactive email platform is the perfect solution in today’s market allowing our distributors to track the people that are interested and leave the rest alone!” offered Kathy Roberton, President of The Automotive Resource Network and continues “we expect to have 10,000 representatives using WRAPmail within the next 12 months”.
The concept behind WRAPmail is to utilize the facts that almost everyone have websites (corporate and/or social network site) and also send emails every day. These emails can become complete marketing tools and help promote, brand, sell and cross-sell in addition to drive traffic to the website(s) and conduct research. WRAPmail also helps search for missing children with every email sent by incorporating an optional RSS feed from the Center for Missing and Exploited Children.
WRAPmail has now entered the Revenue stage with its newly released offerings model:
1 WRAPmail PRO: Our free shared solution available to anyone that now will have advertising from other WRAPmail clients incorporated. Not only is the solution free and the ads will not interfere with the WRAP (unless the user wants it to) but WRAPmail will share 25% of the Advertising revenue with the user.
2 WRAPmail PRO+: Shared solution, $50/user/year. No 3rd party ads unless the client opts in to the Ad-revenue-share program. These users will be able to select the advertisers/ads they want displayed in or around their WRAPS IF they select to have 3rd party advertising at all.
3 WRAPmail Enterprise: Dedicated solution, $3,500/year plus $40/year per user. WRAPmail will host a dedicated Server for each Enterprise client and this solution has all the features of the shared solution plus a Campaign Module for sending email campaigns. There is no extra charge for using the campaign module and we believe there is a brand new market opportunity for WRAPmail with this solution with the heavy users of Newsletters and mass mailings. The major differentiator between WRAPmail and companies offering mass email solutions is the fact that WRAPmail emails get delivered without the Red X and message to download images in email clients. WRAPs also do not look like posters but rather like regular emails framed in images with embedded links.
To be launched march 2012, the concept is a mix between similar models from Facebook and Google but focusing on pushing 3rd party ads out with regular emails as opposed to website ads. An advertiser can have a free account and there’s no usage requirement to become an advertiser. Advertisers simply create their ad in the WRAPmail Dashboard; pick City, State, Country and/or Industry of other users for placement of ads. Minimum rates (which users can increase for better placement) are $1 CPM (cost per 1,000 impressions) and $0.10 CPC (cost per click) and advertisers can set monthly budgets.
WRAPmail will share 25% of the ad revenue with the users that opt-in to the ad-revenue-share program.
