Targeted Advertising in Chicago Suburbs

advertising and marketing in ChicagolandIt’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.

There are many factors that go into increasing conversion rates with combinations of print and digital marketing: reach, message reinforcement and more.

  • Consumer spending: Target consumers by how much they spend on what you sell
  • Behavior: Target consumers by their purchasing behaviors to avoid wasted spend
