Advertising in Los Angeles – What Works Best for Your Small Business?

pacific coast highway billboard advertising effectivenessAs the second most populous city in the U.S. (almost 4 million and counting) with a record-breaking estimated 50 million tourists annually, Los Angeles is a hotspot for innovative entrepreneurs looking to get a slice of the action. But if you own an auto repair shop in Santa Monica, a beauty salon in Torrance or family-owned restaurant in Oxnard, can you afford big-name ad agencies that cost big-time bucks?

That’s where Valpak digital marketing and direct mail come in. When you advertise your small business with Valpak, you can reach millions of households from L.A. to Riverside. Our audience has 32% more income and 25% higher purchasing power than the U.S. average. Across California, you can mail to more than 4 million consumers monthly, including in the areas of Anaheim, Fresno, Huntington Beach, Oakland, Palm Springs, Sacramento, San Diego, San Luis Obispo, San Mateo and the Silicon Valley.

Advertising Agencies in Los Angeles – How to Choose

There are more than a million advertising agencies in Los Angeles. No, that’s not a typo. You could waste precious time perusing the countless lists of “top advertising agencies” in LA and still be unclear as to which would provide the best customer service, creative and results. Big ad agencies like Something Massive, One Eighteen and Team One focus their efforts on attaining large Los Angeles advertising buys and retaining national clients: think Regal Cinemas, Nike and Lexus. Where would the needs of your business fall among the big fishes? Many large marketing firms even charge for putting together your marketing strategy with additional, higher fees throughout the course of your ad campaign. Do you have the advertising budget for all that? Especially with the lack of localized touch?

5 Negatives of Large Los Angeles Advertising Agencies

  1. Expensive from start to finish with fees for each service
  2. No familiarity with the local marketplace or your business
  3. Hundreds of other clients = constant battle for attention
  4. Unimpressive customer support and lack of real follow-up
  5. Slow turnaround on creative deliverables

direct mail in LA

  • Coupons to bring more customers to your business – one- or two-sided, our signature solution.
  • Flyers to promote your menu or seasonal services – two to six panels (up to 16 pages for circulars).
  • Valpak neighborhood-targeted postcards are limited-inventory PlusOne postcards that mail to the same high-income households as The Blue Envelope and include email marketing.
  • 1-to-1 custom postcards to drive response in between Valpak mailings – customizable, specialty print formats.
  • Event postcards are an automated postcard service that reaches a new audience each month. Audiences focuses include birthday, new mover/homeowner and Medicare aging-in.

With nearly 140 office locations, it’s the national recognition of the Valpak brand that sets our direct mail apart from any competitor. Each month, your business has the opportunity to reach anywhere from 30,000 to 1.7+ million of the Angelenos who look forward to the Valpak Blue Envelope of coupons arriving in their mailboxes. This way, there’s no wasted coverage from blanketing an audience that lives too far away or doesn’t need what your business offers. Since space is shared in our direct mailer, each local business benefits from the cost savings of shared direct mail.

Our agency utilizes the cover of our envelope to promote the $100 Instant Win each month. A separate team at our corporate headquarters secures on-envelope partnerships with well-known brands, which also contributes to our staggering open rate – an impressive 9 out 10. And 8 out of 10 of those people look at every local ad inside the envelope. You can’t get this kind of targeted publicity from other direct mailers, certainly not for as little as pennies per household. Valpak of Los Angeles will help you choose the best mailing areas for your business, when and how often to mail and the direct mail solution most likely to generate results.

5 Benefits of Targeted Marketing & Advertising

  1. Reach the right audience. You’re distributing your message of value to the people most likely to respond.
  2. Get more customers. By targeting your advertising, you’ll attract and convert more high-quality leads.

  4. Track ad performance. With a unique URL and call tracking number, you can measure success in real time.
  5. Get better results. Target marketing gets the right ad in front of the right audience for no wasted spend.
