Targeted Advertising in Chicago Suburbs

web development for chicago areaIt’s the same principle behind supporting your income with multiple streams of revenue, hedging your investments with a diverse portfolio or simply having a plan B or C. A targeted, multichannel marketing strategy gives your business more opportunities to find, attract and retain the types of customers who’ll love your business as much as you do – maybe even more!

With Valpak’s print and digital solutions, you can unleash a marketing campaign that’s precise and pragmatic. The low cost of digital marketing paired with our shared-mailing concept makes it affordable for businesses large and small to reap the benefits of print and digital synergies. When combined, direct mail and digital marketing solutions have a 28% higher conversion rate, on average, compared to single-channel strategies.chicago suburb direct mail targeting

There are many factors that go into increasing conversion rates with combinations of print and digital marketing: reach, message reinforcement and more. For Valpak of Chicagoland, multichannel marketing campaigns also benefit from our precision targeting and detailed tracking. Along with our rich neighborhood data, our targeting resources ensure your brand’s ads find the consumers most likely to act on your offers.

Some of the many features of our targeting and tracking solutions include:online advertising chicago suburbs and chicagoland

Classified Ads in Chicago Newspapers

advertising in chicago suburbs neighborhoodsClassified newspaper ads and other outdated advertising channels lack the precision needed to be sure you’re paying for marketing content that only goes to your target demographic. Local classified papers and ad space in newspapers cast a wide net. But are your ad dollars really being put to the best use if you’re advertising home improvement services to a neighborhood that mostly rents? What about automotive services to an area with high ‘L’ ridership and low private transit? Home health care in a neighborhood with very few seniors?

Like advertising on Super Bowl Sunday, placing an ad in the Chicago Tribune was once the surefire way to put your business on the map and get people talking about it. But as news and information continues its transformation and decentralization, classified ads alone just aren’t enough to build up awareness about your business.
