VANCOUVER, Aug. 28 /CNW/ - HealthPricer Interactive (TSX-V: HPC), a
leader in online comparison shopping for consumer healthcare products, today
announced that on August 25th, 2007 HealthPricer received unique visitor
number 3,000,000, three months after receiving unique visitor number
2,000,000. By comparison the 1st million visitors arrived over a thirteen
month period and the 2nd million visitors in just over 5 months.
HealthPricer has increased its daily traffic by 345% over the last 12
months, with unique visitors in August 2006 averaging 3,225 per day compared
to an average of 11,134 per day in August 2007. Total unique visitors to
HealthPricer in August 2006 were 100,096 compared to 345,000 that we will
receive in August 2007, assuming that we will continue at the current pace.
Increased traffic has a direct correlation to revenue, as demonstrated by
HealthPricer's previously announced 1052% revenue growth from $21,000 in Q1
2007 to $242,000 in Q1 2008 (latest figures are still preliminary).
HealthPricer attributes this continuous upward trend in unique visitors
to its comprehensive understanding of product sales in the healthcare sector
and its ability to find interested buyers.
"HealthPricer unique visitors continue to grow month over month, even in
the summer time when traditional retail experiences a slowdown," says Michael
I. Brown, President and CEO of HealthPricer Interactive. "Unlike most of our
predecessors in comparison shopping we have elected to specialize in a single
domain: healthcare. With this single focus we are clearly ahead of the pack in
understanding the intricacies of how healthcare products are manufactured,
packaged and marketed. This gives us a distinct advantage in all aspects of
our business including product aggregation, marketing and consumer experience.
We are clearly becoming the benchmark in comparison shopping for healthcare
products and we expect to see even more significant month over month increases
in our unique visitors and hence our revenue."
