For the First Time Playboy Mexico Partners With a U.S. Company to Find the Playmate of the Year
WEST PALM BEACH, Fla. /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ — Quepasa (NASDAQ: QPSA) and Playboy Mexico today announced a strategic partnership to launch a model search to find the next Playboy Mexico Playmate of the Year for 2009. The model search will be largely judged by Quepasa (www.Quepasa.com) members who will vote for which models advance to the finalist’s pool.
“Becoming a Playboy Playmate is a goal for many aspiring models and actresses,” said Quepasa CEO, John C. Abbott. “Since the site’s relaunch we have been focused on developing new partnerships such as this to boost overall memberships while further enhancing the member experience. We are excited to be partnering with a respected and trusted brand such as Playboy Mexico to offer such a tremendous opportunity to our growing membership and the Latino community.”
As part of the partnership Quepasa, one of the fastest growing online social communities for young Latinos, will develop a fully interactive online community for Playboy Mexico in which Quepasa members can enter to become a Playboy Playmate or vote for which models make it to the finals. The community, which will launch in February, will feature a vibrant, interactive viral community, including model profiles, pictures, and user-generated content.
“We are always looking for exciting and innovative ways to find the kinds of Latin women who reflect that girl-next-door image,” said Raul Sayrols, Playboy Mexico’s publisher. “With its millions of members and vast traffic, Quepasa represents the perfect partner. Through Quepasa we can get direct feedback from our readers on the kinds of models they want to see in pages of our magazine, which is also available worldwide at www.todorevistas.com.mx.”
Both Quepasa and Playboy Mexico will leverage their properties to drive traffic to the contest and cross promote.
