Digital Shelf Space's Flagship Product GSP Rushfit Reaches #2 on the Top Rated Exercise and Fitness Titles List on Amazon.com(May 22, 2012)
VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA -- (Marketwire) -- 05/22/12 -- Digital Shelf Space Corp. (the "Company" or "DSS") (TSX VENTURE:DSS)(OTCQX:DTSRF) announced today that GSP RUSHFIT?? reached #2 on the Amazon.com Exercise and Fitness Top Rated product list on May 16th, 2012, after less than 5 months of being listed for sale at Amazon.com. The #1 rated product in the top 100 is Beachbody's Insanity??, followed by GSP RUSHFIT at #2, and Beachbody's P90X?? at #3. Insanity and P90X are both produced by market leader Beachbody, LLC and have been supported with multi-million dollar TV advertising campaigns over a number of years dating back as far as 2005 in the case of P90X. The top 100 Amazon.com ratings list is based entirely on Amazon.com customer rating feedback scores, and GSP RUSHFIT has achieved a perfect five star rating from each customer that has reviewed it.
"We are extremely pleased by our success selling GSP RUSHFIT on Amazon.com and the tremendous feedback and enthusiasm from Amazon.com customers. It is amazing that we've achieved this success with only a small fraction of the annual marketing and advertising budget spent by industry leaders such as Beachbody, LLC and Zumba Fitness, LLC," said Jeffrey Sharpe, President and CEO for DSS. "In addition, we're very pleased to see how quickly we've moved up the Amazon rankings and look forward to seeing our results through 2012 and into the peak fitness season later this year."
