– Daily Deal Site Offers Discounts in Denver and Phoenix to Singers, Actors and Job-seekers –
NEW YORK – September 21, 2011 – kgbdeals, one of the fastest-growing daily deal destinations on the Web, today announced an partnership with Studio One Media, Inc. (OTCBB: SOMD) to offer a five-minute MyStudio video session for just $8 – a 60% discount off the typical $20 price. The collaboration signifies the first time a daily deal site has aligned with MyStudio® HD Recording Studios, which are located nationwide.
The initiative follows MyStudio's recent national introduction of its interactive high-definition recording studios in conjunction with its multi-year partnership with Simon Cowell's "The X Factor." MyStudio recording studios enable consumers to create an HD-quality video with professional sound for music, auditions, modeling, comedy, dating, greetings and business, all in the convenience of their local mall.
“We are pleased to be the first and only daily deal site to partner with MyStudio, which reflects our commitment to offering the most exciting, convenient and affordable deals in unprecedented ways,” said Patrick Albus, CEO, kgbdeals USA. “Even if fame is not in your future, the MyStudio opportunity with kgbdeals can serve as an economical resource for actors, college applicants or even to create a video resume for creative job-seekers.”
Consumers can choose from over 1,000 high-definition "green screen" backgrounds and select licensed karaoke tracks made available through agreements with Sony/ATV Music Publishing, Universal Music Publishing Group, EMI Music Publishing and BMG Chrysalis. Initially available in Denver (Colorado Mills) and Phoenix (Arizona Mills Mall), the kgbdeals/MyStudio deal eventually will roll out to three other locations: Kansas (Oak Park Mall), Tennessee (Coolsprings Galleria) and Hawaii (Pearlridge Center).
“As a leader in interactive entertainment, we always strive to connect with consumers in unexpected, innovative ways,” said Anna Madrid, Vice President of Business Development, Studio One Media, Inc. “Partnering with kgbdeals enables us to tap into their nationwide network spanning more than 20 markets as we continue to expand our freestanding locations across the country.”
