NORWALK, CT, May 16, 2007 - Webloyalty.com, a leading provider of technology-based, online marketing services, today announced that its revenues reached $143.9 million in 2006, a 33 percent increase from 2005 revenues of $108.6 million. Company revenues also grew by 26 percent in 2005 as compared with 2004.
The impressive growth of Webloyalty can be attributed to many factors. One reason is the prevalence of Internet use. According to the Pew Internet & American Life Project, Internet use is ubiquitous in the US with 73 percent of American adults going online. Pew now considers the average American adult to be the average American Internet user.
“As adults become more comfortable online, they may look to the Internet for fun and convenience. A Webloyalty service such as Reservation Rewards enables members to print out two-for-one dining coupons as they walk out the door to a restaurant. There’s no more clipping, storing and checking expiration dates. The online rewards program experience has improved the quality of everyday life,” said Rick Fernandes, CEO, Webloyalty.com.
Fernandes also considers Webloyalty employees to be contributors to company growth. Webloyalty currently employs almost 300 people, an increase of 16 percent since the end of 2006. “We are particularly indebted to our employees, without whom our growth would not have been possible,” continued Fernandes, “Their hard work and dedication have provided value to our clients and members, and we look forward to long relationships with each member of our staff.”
