Advertising in Philadelphia

advertising in philadelphiaIf you think marketing is best left to the experts, you’re not alone. From the Brownstein Group to AgileCat, there are hundreds of large Philadelphia ad agencies ready to take your money. But don’t write that check just yet. What you won’t hear in their flashy sales presentations is the true cost to hire and retain their services. That everything, from the initial brand discovery to the post-campaign analytics, comes at a price. That you’ll be competing for attention with national brands with million-dollar budgets and when they finally get to you, you’ll be disappointed in what’s provided.

What you really need is some brotherly love, a trusted media consultant with the local clout and name recognition to cut through the noise. Someone from the neighborhood who remembers your name and works tirelessly to help you achieve your marketing goals. Advertising in Philadelphia doesn’t have to be hard. Valpak of Philadelphia can customize a marketing plan for you that:

  • Sets measurable, attainable goals
  • Builds awareness of your business
  • Reaches your local target audience
  • Maps your most-profitable locales
  • Drives a positive return on investment

Newspaper Ads in Philadelphia are Old News

philly inquirer newspaper advertisingValpak of Philadelphia knows the benefits of print advertising; we built our business on it. But not all print advertising is created equal. Take newspaper ads, for example. When you do newspaper advertising in the Philadelphia Inquirer or Philadelphia Tribune, there are little to no targeting capabilities. This means you’re paying to reach an audience that may or may not be interested in what you provide. Not to mention, newspaper readership is on the decline with an audience that skews older.

With targeted direct mail, you target high-income consumers looking for your products and services. You can easily segment your audience by demographics, geographic area and purchasing behaviors to ensure no wasted spend. Each month, 580,000 households across Greater Philadelphia look forward to Valpak’s Blue Envelope of local savings arriving in their mailboxes. Because space in our local direct mailer is shared, each business advertising in the Philadelphia envelope pays less than a standalone flyer.

Digital Billboard Advertising in Philadelphia

advertise on Philadelphia busesHop on the SEPTA Market-Frankford Line or take the RiverLink Ferry and you’ll see hundreds of examples of outdoor advertising in Philadelphia. You might even catch a fleeting glance at an ad on the side of a trolley or the top of a taxi cab as you go about your day-to-day. Most of these ads are static (not moving) and small, which makes them even harder to read in the hustle and bustle of Philly traffic. Think about the last Philadelphia bus ad you saw. What do you remember about it? Chances are, you don’t remember the advertiser’s phone number? What about where their business is located? Also, is your target audience everyone in the city (hint: it’s not)?

Facing an adapt-or-die conundrum, many advertising agencies now promote digital billboards as a quick way to impress passersby. The moment you add “digital” in front of “billboard advertising,” the costs of marketing your business on billboards skyrockets. There are so many more cost-effective digital marketing opportunities out there. Opportunities that Valpak of Philadelphia, a Google Premier Partner, can introduce you to:

Krispy Kreme Advertising Success Story

Keith Morgan, Krispy Kreme donut franchisee in the Greater Philadelphia market, opened his first store in 2010. He tried all types of restaurant advertising – TV, radio, internet, bus shelters – before landing on Valpak. Keith wanted an advertising vehicle that brought in enough customers to justify its costs. When he began mailing with Valpak, he saw an immediate increase in customers and continues to see a consistent return on his ad spend. Keith enjoys how easy it is to work with his local media consultant to modify his offers or rotate his mailing areas to reach new customers. He recommends you seriously consider Valpak as an advertising partner.
