Manufacturing is provided through Mr. B III.
After identifying the opportunity for permission email direct marketing, newsletter marketing and Internet & direct marketing, we began to refocus our strategy towards permission email and Internet marketing in early 1999. To implement our permission email strategy, we acquired Golf Promo, created TargetMails.com (http://www.TargetMails.com) and started Ifusion in 1999. As a result of our new focus, we have built a network and developed reseller relationships which collectively provides us to reach over 3 million self-directed individuals, who have given permission to receive promotional messages via email on specific categories of interest. Our current strategy is to focus our resources on our permission email business by continuing to build our network of subscribers and our customer base.
We derive revenue by charging fees for sending permission email messages. Revenue is recognized when emails are sent to subscribers. Our customers are primarily e-commerce companies, interactive advertising agencies, golf and golf related companies.
We deliver email messages to members of our Golf Promo Network, consisting of our own permission email list and those of our network partners, and permission email lists from third party list managers. We pay our network partners or third party list managers either a percentage of revenue derived from the delivery of email messages to members on the lists they provide or a fixed fee. Substantially all of our customers purchase our permission email services under short-term contracts. We expect to continue to derive a substantial majority of our revenues from short-term contracts.
We expect to increase spending on sales and marketing as we expand our sales force, increase our subscriber base and promote awareness of our business. We also expect substantially higher selling, and continued web site development expenses as we expand our infrastructure to support our expected growth and as we continue to develop new online services.
In view of the rapidly evolving nature of our business, our limited operating history and our recent focus on permission email and Internet marketing services, we believe that period-to-period comparisons of our revenue and operating results, including our gross margin and operating expenses as a percentage of total revenues, are not meaningful and should not be relied upon as an indication of future performance. We do not believe that our historical growth rates are indicative of future results.
