SAN DIEGO, Aug 19, 2009 (BUSINESS WIRE) -- Socialwise, Inc. (SCLW, Trade ) today announced the appointment of Mark Miller, former Senior Vice President of DC Shoes and action sports industry veteran to the company's Board of Advisors. In this role, he will use his extensive network of online merchants, Actions Sports athletes, and industry connections to position BillMyParents as a leading youth payment system. He will be in charge of securing partnerships with leading online action sports brands and retailers as well as building our user base of young consumers and their parents.

"During my years selling youth oriented products online, a persistent impediment to faster growth was young people's lack of a viable payment method for purchases," commented Mark Miller. "I was instantly impressed by the potential of BillMyParents to overcome this constraint and actually increase parents' ability to monitor and control young people's purchases online."

Mark Miller has over twenty-five years experience working in Action Sports and youth culture businesses. As a senior executive, Mark focused on developing and executing go-to-market strategies for consumer goods companies.

SCLW Buzz- New member joining?

Latest buzz I have been hearing is that we have another big name member joining the company with vast experience in the Teen/tween market. Although that narrows it down to a few thousand people, I'm going to go out on a limb and say its probably a former executive in the Video gaming, Skateboarding, or clothing industry that deals with a lot of teen marketing.

I also understand theres talk of a big name X games sports figure along the lines of a Travis Pastrana or Tony Hawk also coming on board in some way. We will see if this is just talk or real news probably within a couple weeks. Despite the selling we have had last week, SCLW continues its strong hold on .70 ish. Won't take much to push it, and maybe this news will be it.

Markets Rally... SCLW next?

We are seeing a strong rally continue on the general markets signaling this might not be a false Bull Run or a dead cat bounce, but an actual sustainable bull market. Jury is still out if this will hold, but indicators are that it will. Summers generally signal sell offs, yet we continue to see gains meaning people and institutions see many opportunities that are deemed to good to pass on.
What this means for the penny stocks is that people are ready to take risks again. SCLW has held its ground despite some opportunities for decline. With confidence back, its not going to take much to get people to chase the stock again. Look for some good news we know is coming to start this next push....
Let me know if you have any questions.
