Fanplayr Announces Launch in UK to Meet Global Demand for E-commerce Personalization

PALO ALTO, Calif. -- anplayr, the leader in online behavioral personalization and artificial intelligence, accelerates its global growth plans with the opening of new offices in London and Manchester and three new senior appointments in the UK. The company's rapid expansion in the UK is driven by its ability to convert online users into buyers, using real-time analysis of online behavior. With an enormous surge in e-commerce in the last year, Fanplayr is anticipating significant revenue growth in the UK, reflecting the company's success across Europe where it has already had an increase in year-over-year revenue of more than 70%.

The success of Fanplayr's advanced cookie-free personalization is also equipping companies for post-pandemic recovery and for one of the most serious challenges to online business - the end of third-party cookies set to take place in 2022.

To build this early success in the UK, Fanplayr has made three key appointments. Andy McNab leads the UK operation, becoming the company's Vice President for EMEA. McNab is an award-winning digital leader who has led teams at Microsoft, AOL, and Rocket Fuel and is now fully focused on developing Fanplayr across EMEA.

Joining McNab are Dave Hendry, Regional Sales Director, who has worked in senior positions at JOE Media and Rocket Fuel, and Jessica Biddle, Head of Customer Success, who has previously led and developed teams at MiQ and Centro.

"We are excited to welcome Andy McNab and his team to Fanplayr," said Simon Yencken, Fanplayr CEO and Co-founder. "Andy brings a wealth of knowledge and value as an experienced leader in e-commerce and Adtech. We have high expectations for the UK in terms of notable global brands, enterprise customers, and expanded revenue for Fanplayr."

In the last month alone, Fanplayr has already acquired four major UK clients and further significant deals are in the pipeline to feed the expected growth. The new UK clients range from high-end fashion retailers to hotels and global software, and also includes several trading agreements with advertising agencies. Says McNab: "UK businesses have gained millions of new customers during the pandemic and they need us to help understand and retain them. Fanplayr's patented solution is perfectly placed to transform revenues without disruption."

Expansion in the UK comes as Fanplayr completes strategic agreements with key partners in the Nordics, Dubai and Abu Dhabi that will guarantee the company's advanced capabilities, including its patented "Segmentation-as-a-Service", are available across Europe and beyond.

From its global headquarters in Palo Alto, California, Fanplayr has been leading fully integrated online personalization and AI for a decade. The company achieved 100% growth in 2019 prior to the pandemic, with consistent growth of more than 60% annually over the last several years.

XLNT Foods’ Website Gets Facelift Just in Time for National Tamale Day

LONG BEACH, Calif. -- XLNT Foods, the oldest continuously operating Mexican food brand in the United States, is no stranger in the supermarket aisle. It's been producing small batch tamales and chili con carne with the same authentic recipe since 1894, but knows its marketing could benefit from more variety. That's why it has recently refreshed its website and plans to launch an online store too.

XLNT Foods is excited about this year's National Tamale Day on March 23, which coincides with the site's new look and feel. The website now features fresh photography highlighting its products, a store locator, updated product information pages, and a blog filled with favorite customer recipes, contests and announcements. There's also a new XLNT Foods' Gear Page showcasing a variety of apparel, housewares and other accessories.

"It isn't easy trying to keep a 127-year-old company going, but we know the need to evolve is part of that mission," says Vincent Passanisi, president of XLNT Foods. "In creating the new website, we've tried to meet ever changing wants and needs, while still preserving the spirit and flavor of what has come before."

The company prides itself on recipes that have stood the test of time and attributes that to its small batch cooking. The popular beef tamale includes a signature spice blend, and is an amazing value with 55 percent savory beef filling. The newest addition to the product line is a spicy chicken tamale with a tomato-based fill of chicken, potatoes and diced jalapeños. Both items are still wrapped by hand, in Southern California not far from where the company began.

As a small-family owned and operated business, XLNT Foods' leaders hope that this is the beginning of many new things ahead and reports that the new website is designed for all platforms - desktops, tablets and mobile phones. The website embraces the new, yet still maintains its old-school vibe and values.

"We believe that personal relationships are still the most important part of business," Passanisi shares. "Good food, drink and shared experiences are the stuff of life. We want to do more for our loyal customers, who have supported our products for so many years. This is just the beginning."


About XLNT Foods

XLNT Foods is the oldest continuously operating Mexican food brand in the United States, and one of the oldest companies in Southern California. For more than 125 years, its produced delicious, home-style Mexican foods which include small batch tamales and Chili Con Carne.

Millions of American Women Are Actively Engaging With The Life-Affirming Social Media Account ‘Giving Everyday’

GREAT NECK, N.Y. -- The Instagram and Facebook accounts of the Giving Everyday Charitable Trust (, a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization promoting American unity and societal healing via simple (but profound) acts of kindness, are achieving immense audience engagement rates, far surpassing industry standards. The average audience demographic of 82% women on Instagram make the account a natural fit for women-oriented brands in the fashion, beauty, healthcare industries, just to name a few.

While the Facebook ( engagement rate of 42% decimates the average influencer rate of 2% or 3%, the Instagram ( statistics are staggering, with an engagement rate of 239% (measured from 2/11-2/18/21) also compared with an industry standard of 2% to 3%. These figures, coupled with video views in excess of 2.2 million, and "Reels" views of over 10 million (between 2/1-2/18/21) make the case for marketer involvement with the accounts a very persuasive one.

The Giving Everyday Charitable Trust has excited fans across the USA, and beyond, with their social media posts. The organization will soon be recruiting Americans for the hopefully viral "Giving Army" project where "troops" will accept the commitment to perform one act of kindness per day. Future projects include the Annual Kindness Awards and a YouTube channel.

The Giving Everyday social media posts focus on genuine, and often very moving, acts of kindness that Americans perform for loved ones and complete strangers. Video posts naturally elicit the highest rate of interaction and response. Recently, the organization's Instagram account conducted its first "Kindness Challenge Giveaway" where followers from across the USA (and Europe) shared an act of kindness they performed over the three days of the contest.

Companies that sponsor these accounts will derive the dual benefits of exceptional advertising reach as well as the community goodwill derived for sponsoring such a positivity-based organization.

Interested marketers are invited to reach out to Lauren Horowitz at
