Australia’s Premier Online Women’s Community and Magazine Selects Lyris HQ to Drive Digital Marketing Efforts

EMERYVILLE, Calif., December 20, 2011 – Lyris, Inc. (OTCBB: LYRI.OB), the global digital marketing expert, today announced that Australia’s premier online publisher for women, Mamamia, has selected Lyris as its digital marketing partner. Based on the desire to reinvent their online marketing program and the need for robust analytics to succeed, the company is implementing Lyris HQ across the marketing organization.

Mamamia is Australia’s leading women’s website and social media community. They leverage industry-leading tools and technology to engage a community of hundreds of thousands of women in real-life discussions filled with interesting facts and stories about life experiences. Targeted purely at women in the 24-49 age group, topics include everything from popular culture and fashion, to body image and motherhood. Additionally, following the recent launch of their sophisticated business directory, Mamamia is expanding its portfolio by launching their first eCommerce store. The new online store will provide women with easy access to curated ideas and products that improve their lives: “Everything a busy woman needs to know and wants to buy.” Mamamia is implementing Lyris HQ to help drive new and current members to its store and increase ongoing engagement in its community.

“As we experienced rapid, positive growth, it became clear that Mamamia needed a digital marketing partner who could provide the right solution to create a targeted, robust marketing program that effectively reaches our enthusiastic community,” said Jason Lavigne, chief executive officer of Mamamia. “Lyris understood our goals better than anybody and with Lyris HQ we are confident that our store, community and our readership will continue to grow.”

“We are thrilled to partner with Jason and his team on their digital marketing program,” said Wolfgang Maasberg, chief executive officer for Lyris. “Lyris offers the perfect solution for this growing community of women, enabling Mamamia to attract new members and helping more women discover their brand. We look forward to working with Mamamia to expand their reach in Australia and beyond through world-class cross-channel marketing campaigns.”
