Sequentia Announces Relationship with RedFlagDeals.com
Second-Year University Student’s Website Now Boasts Over 300,000 Unique Canadian Visitors a Month for Retail Rebates and Discount Offers
TORONTO, May 30, 2003. Sequentia Communications, a Toronto-based public relations and internet marketing firm, announced today that it has been retained by RedFlagDeals.com, Canada’s premier online deal-finding web site and a significant bright spot in the Canadian etailing segment.
RedFlagDeals.com was founded by second-year Queen’s University commerce student Derek Szeto while he was still in high school. The site currently boasts over 300,000 unique visitors a month, a testimonial to its commitment to offer to consumers the best retail deals on the market. The site has generated over $500,000 in direct revenue for one of its affiliates, NCIX.com. “RedFlagDeals.com is an excellent resource for Canadian consumers and an important partner in our business. The community around RedFlagDeals.com helps us insure that our prices are competitive and our service is the best in Canada,” said Steve Wu, president of NCIX.com.
“Sequentia’s involvement with AIMS Canada, coupled with their expertise in more traditional media makes them the perfect fit, said Derek Szeto. “By having Sequentia handle our media communications we hope to reach a broader audience while enabling us to focus on our strength - helping Canadians find the best deals on the Internet.
Szeto has also set up a five-year scholarship at Queen’s under the RedFlagDeals.com name. “The scholarship is one way for me to give back. I’m in university so I can understand how expensive it can be. To be in a position where I am able to give back in this way is fantastic.”
“RedFlagDeals is such an exciting success story, a rare thing in Canadian ecommerce circles,” said Jennifer Evans, Managing Partner of Sequentia Communications. “The fact that Derek is still a university student makes their success that much more remarkable. We are delighted to be representing them.”
