You can click on additional links to find out more about each type of advertising. You may get a summary of the three types of Valpak advertising below.
Cooperative mail goes out in an envelope with ads from other local companies. Cooperative mail essentially consists of the Valpak coupons. You may have Valpak design the coupons for you when you place an order. Although your coupon appears in the same envelope with other advertisers’ coupons, you pay much less when ordering cooperative mail from Valpak. You may wish to run a test with cooperative mail before engaging in a Valpak Direct Mail offer.
The Valpak Direct Mail offer is like a solo ad. It is a postcard that goes out by itself instead of in a packet like the cooperative mail. Of course, you will pay more per postcard than when using cooperative mail. However, you may get much more exposure than when competing against other advertisers when using cooperative mail.
The Valpak Digital Products offer consists of image ads on the Valpak website and some search engines. The Digital Products offer is obviously going to be for businesses that have a website. You can promote to web surfers to get more traffic to your site by ordering a Digital Products package.

In short, the Valpak Cooperative Mail and Direct Mail are geared toward local companies that need to increase the number of customers walking in the door of their local shop. The Digital Products advertising offer is geared more toward businesses that have an online website or a local store plus an online website.
