Columbus, Ohio - R&A Marketing here is launching Sleep Better Promotions, a turnkey integrated marketing program with traditional media print, broadcast, direct mail, email, online marketing and social media components promoting the retailer as the brand. The marketing firm said the new program is fully customizable and promotes the retailer's store "as the ideal location for every mattress shopper by promoting all of the mattress brands retailers sell and all the consumer needs they meet."
