BLUERUSH ANNOUNCES MAJOR MILESTONE FOR DIGITALREACH
BlueRush Media Group Corp.'s product DigitalReach has reached a major milestone since it was first launched in 2012. Now in the hands of nearly 40,000 financial advisers across Canada, the software-as-a-service content management platform is an established, proven application that has been tested by Brexit and the recent U.S. election. The results are simply outstanding.
Developed by BlueRush Digital Media Corp., DigitalReach helps front line sales departments to simply and effectively nurture customer relationships with curated, pre-approved content that's designed to be shared with customers and the public at large. As a SaaS application, users can access the platform from any computer with a WIFI connection and secure login credentials. Once on the platform, users search for approved content that's beneficial to each customer, and then they send it to them. Every communication sent from DIGITALREACH(TM) is personalized, tracked, and logged. Users see in real-time what content is engaging for customers and more importantly, what content isn't engaging. No complicated analytics required. Customers receive a responsive-designed email that is fully branded and personalized to each and every customer.
Content is king today. DIGITALREACH(TM) breathes new life in content that small businesses and corporations already have on their hard drives, intranets and servers. It stores the content in a central web-based library with customizable search parameters and lets users choose the content their customers need that's both timely and relevant to their personal situation. The built-in dashboard is easy to use and reports in real-time.
"The best practice behaviour of increasing the relevancy of the touchpoints with your customers is paying off for nearly 40,000 financial advisors across Canada," says Larry Lubin, CEO and President of BLUERUSH. "Investors want to receive relevant information from their financial advisors. Banks and investment companies have a lot of content advisors can use to nurture their customers to save more money for retirement, for example." In this era of transparency around investment management fees, DIGITALREACH(TM) is an application that's caught up to the demand.
CRM systems are useful; however, regularly sharing content with customers has proven to grow a business significantly. This low cost, SaaS solution is very effective in getting customers to buy more products from brands and advisors they trust.
Over 30 major financial institutions and investment firms empower their front line with access to DIGITALREACH(TM). These clients use the platform for both content marketing and regulatory requirements resulting from the new Point of Sale regulations (CRM2). Register for your demo today at www.digitalreach.ca.

The Company reported a net loss of $182,303 compared to net earnings of $505,301 in the previous year.

All combined, BlueRush now has more than 50,000 financial advisors making use of the DigitalReach platform. This will represent hundreds of thousands of campaigns and millions of emails sent over the course of each year and growing. More specifically the BlueRush product ecosystem generates recurring revenues through a corporate license fee as well as a per user fee. Also during the year the Company continued work on service related projects including tools, calculators, websites and videos. The Company also launched another IndiVideo™ project for a major financial service dealer. The Company is working on integrating DigitalReach with financial tools and IndiVideo enabling advisors in the future to send and personalize content all through the same platform. On the healthcare side, the MCaW or Managing Cancer at Work™ program, a strategic partnership of Johns Hopkins and BlueRush has attracted the interest of major US insurance firms looking to implement the program as part of its sales strategy for related insurance products.
