Through a calendar of regular creative campaigns, from Valentine's Day to Christmas, we work with retailers to increase and enhance brand or product exposure through a range of bespoke packages.
Our packages include responsive website exposure, hub page sponsorship opportunities, email marketing, wifi takeover, promotional offers, social media amplification and bespoke editorial campaigns through our digital magazine, Shop Insider.
Shop Insider, reveals the inside track to all things shopping through inspirational, entertaining and informative content that drives brand awareness and commerce for our retailers and brands.
We're the only UK nationwide shopping centre landlord to offer this, and as well as increasing visibility and footfall, our platform adds millions of pounds of revenue to our participating retailers – including over £25m per month in gift card sales alone. It’s all part and parcel of the intu difference.

social media followers
A leading department store brand asked intu to support their clearance sale. So we created a multichannel campaign with targeted emails to four shopping centres’ databases and the intu.co.uk subscriber list, as well as a wifi takeover to ensure that customers logging on to wifi would see featured messaging. Over 23 days, there were 1.26 million targeted content impressions, an email open rate of 22 per cent and a wifi takeover click-through rate of 0.6 per cent. Participating centres saw footfall up from 19 to 26 per cent during the campaign.
