ATLANTA – October 2, 2012 – Today, InComm celebrates its 20th anniversary as the leading innovator and driver of growth in the prepaid and payments industry. Since the company’s inception in 1992, InComm has operated with the philosophy that consumers’ needs should drive innovation, and has responded accordingly by introducing new methods of payment that adapt to the changing ways of doing business, from modernizing retail point of sale (P.O.S.) technology to introducing prepaid wireless cards to developing new methods of payment for e-commerce and more.
As a result, InComm has built relationships with over 500 of the world’s largest brands and partnered with leading retailers to reach more than one billion customers weekly. Worldwide, InComm operates in 26 countries on five continents to foster acceptance of new payment methods, increase convenience for consumers and drive revenue for retailers.
“InComm has been successful for the past 20 years by transforming the shopping experience for consumers, retailers and brands,” said Brooks Smith, president and CEO of InComm. “As global commerce continues to expand beyond the brick and mortar to online, social, mobile and more, InComm will keep providing payment options for consumers that meet their needs across all channels. We couldn't be prouder of the progress we’ve made these 20 years, and we look forward to many more years of innovating and driving the payment industry forward.”

IMI is proud to announce, that after a 14 month beta, we have released our proprietary "news" "Content Marketing" platform. In short, IMI will build an enhanced "Search Engine Optimized/Marketing" (SEO/SEM) "breaking news" website around your industry's keywords for your vertical/niche.
Our platform will send our "trained" "NewsBots" to scour the web (once an hour 24/7/365) for specific keywords. Once our NewsBots find a breaking news story containing the keyword(s), they send it back to our servers which then reformat the story into a Drudge Report styled (but better) post. We not only include the Title, Photo, and a direct link to the original content provider. We include: Credit to Author, a 25 word blurb/preview, and other stories surrounding said keyword. Because our platform does this every hour, 24/7/365, it gets noticed (Big Time) by the major search engines quickly driving traffic to your news site in droves.
We can provide "targeted traffic" to any vertical, any niche, any subject. Visit Near Field Communication News or take a look at the "Breaking News Site" we built for the NBA's Miami Heat at NBANewsHeat.com Other examples include: NFLNewsBears.com & NFLNewsPackers.com. In 3 short months, we've seen traffic grow from 900 in Month One to over 10,000 by Month 3. So, in a very competitive marketplace (Profesional Sports) in the Big 4 (NFL, NBA, MLB, NHL) featuring the most popular vertical (Miami Heat) here's how we perform after only 4 months:
