DENVER, Nov. 23, 2016 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Social Life Network, Inc. (OTC: WDLF), a business social network and digital marketplace company with media properties in the rapidly expanding legal cannabis industry, is pleased to report a significant rise in consumer traffic and participating dispensaries on The WeedLife Network's website, WeedPons.com. In the weeks leading up to "Black Friday," the traditional start of the annual holiday shopping season, WeedPons.com has averaged more than 200 dispensary coupon deals and 500,000 page views per month. The 2016 Black Friday discount weekend for retailers is expected to create a huge windfall financially as more cannabis dispensaries use WeedPons.com.
"We first launched WeedPons in late 2014, ahead of the newly-coined cannabis shopping day, 'Green Friday,' and saw a spike in traffic over that weekend," says Ken Tapp, CEO and co-founder of The WeedLife Network. "Last year the number of participating dispensary deals on the site doubled to 100, and this year we hope to surpass 275 dispensary deals."
WeedPons participation by cannabis dispensaries is a service that is included in their ProListings monthly dispensary subscription service. Company executives expect 2016 will be the strongest revenue generation from this product category to date.
"More and more cannabis consumers have been visiting WeedPons.com for the past few years," says WeedLife Network co-founder Andy Rodosevich. "Cannabis legalization in new markets continues to fuel our greater traffic numbers, and ultimately adds to the number of participating dispensaries on the site."
"It is also a testament to the mainstreaming of cannabis consumerism," added Rodosevich "We are entrenched in this rich opportunity that while accelerating at a tremendous rate is also quickly adopting best practices and strategies that propel other growth industries."
"Our traffic and participating dispensaries validate the Company as both an innovator and a destination in this exploding industry," adds Rodosevich. "We fully intend to leverage our discount deals technology and integration of it in our network of sites and apps for the greatest benefit of The WeedLife network traffic, and its value to our shareholders."
