San Diego-based International Brands Inc. is developing a campaign including heavy banner advertising to promote its soon to be launched virtual Internet Mall. Spending details were not disclosed.
Partnering with vendors and suppliers, International Brands said it will develop a broad-based campaign of incentives to generate more traffic and increase sales, including giveaways, contests, electronic coupons and discounts, and advertising in other media as well as the Internet.
