FreeShop.com Grabs Distribution on eUniverse Network

Direct marketer FreeShop.com on Friday forged an agreement to distribute its top free offers via eUniverse's network of content, commerce, and community sites.

The deal calls for eUniverse's (EUNI) sites to carry the top five offers from FreeShop.com (FSHP), which will be tailored to fit the content and audience on the sites on which they will appear. eUniverse says it attracts 6.4 million unique users per month.

"FreeShop is delighted to share its top five offers with eUniverse's millions of users resulting in broad exposure for FreeShop and its clients," said Tim Choate, president and chief executive officer of FreeShop.com.

The goal for FreeShop.com is to get more people to take advantage of its free offers, which act as customer acquisition vehicles for its clients. The company has established similar relationships with other sites, including Pcworld, Classmates.com, and Freei.net.

eUniverse's network of entertainment-focused sites includes Case's Ladder, Gamer's Alliance, BigNetwork, and Funone. E-commerce sites include CDUniverse, VideoUniverse, and GamesUniverse. The company recently added LivePlace, a community site, to its network.
