How Do You Advertise in East Tennessee?

chattanooga advertisingIf you’re an independently owned business in East Tennessee, where do you turn for your direct mail advertising and digital marketing? Whether you’re looking for postcards, shared direct mail or social media advertising, Valpak’s reputation in the industry gives you the peace of mind your marketing efforts are in good hands. Valpak of East Tennessee gives you the most bang for your advertising buck, ensuring your print and digital campaigns are effective and affordable.

Chattanooga Advertising That Works

Sitting on the Tennessee River in the foothills of the Appalachian Mountains, Chattanooga is one of the fastest growing cities in the Southeast – both in population and as a tourist destination. The city boasts a diverse business climate that encompasses businesses of all sizes and industries. However, local business owners must partner with a true full-service advertising or marketing agency in Chattanooga for continued growth and success. An online search for “advertising in chattanooga” yields several results, but not all of them live up to the claim of being “full service.”

The most popular marketing agencies in Chattanooga specialize in TV and billboard advertising for established companies but don’t offer solutions for small businesses that need to build websites or have limited budgets. Other agencies focus on niche industries or only provide digital advertising, which aren’t always as cost-effective as direct mail and often lack targeting capabilities. Valpak, a long-standing innovator in the direct marketing space, handles both print and digital advertising.

Since its founding in 1968, Valpak has used extensive research and precise data analysis to delivering the highest ROI to its clients. Our ability to hyper-target households ensures the right eyes are looking at your ads.

When you advertise with Valpak, you reach an audience who anticipates receiving your ad every month. Last year, more than 438 million Blue Envelopes were mailed to over 39 million targeted households.

Households in East Tennessee that receive Valpak have 39% higher incomes, 30% higher home values and 33% higher purchasing power than the local average.

Direct Mail Advertising

Valpak achieved prominence as a national authority in direct mail marketing for more than its extensive targeting capabilities. Creating ads that effectively grab consumers’ attention while clearly communicating offer value has always been one of Valpak’s top priorities.

The 470,000-square-foot Valpak manufacturing center (VMC) assembles 144,000 Blue Envelopes per hour, demonstrating the latest automated system advancements for printing, packaging and distribution. This high level of efficiency means Valpak passes cost-savings on to clients; our high-quality direct mail products cost as little as pennies per household.
