Direct Response Media Group Announces New Partnership with Valpak of Canada
Canadian shared media products powerhouse DRMG solidifies a 20-year partnership with Valpak. 40% revenue increases projected.
Oakville, ON, (April 13, 2016) — Today, Direct Response Media Group (DRMG) announced the signing of a Master Franchise Agreement, which gives DRMG full authority to sign new Valpak of Canada franchisees within the Canadian market.
This unique 20-year partnership offers a powerful integration between these two shared media products powerhouses. DRMG now has access to 40-million unduplicated homes monthly across the USA to its existing Canadian print and digital footprint. With the new agreement, an increase of 40% revenues is projected through expansion into central and western Canada.
DRMG continues to expand its partnership network to bring the best integrated shared media products and digital programs to its customers. Partnering with Valpak, North America’s largest cooperative shared media products company perfectly aligns with this goal.
“This long-term partnership with Valpak expands our reach and aligns our two organizations in the shared media products and digital marketing landscape and also allows us to help more Canadian businesses gain additional customers and increase sales,” said Jason Bradbury, President of DRMG. “The depth of Valpak as an organization allows us to further develop our offerings in the digital space through cross-syndication of our print, mobile and web properties.”
“This alliance is the first of its kind in Valpak history, and we are thrilled,” said Rick McElwain, Executive Vice President of Franchise Development at Valpak. “The partnership reflects the best possible opportunities for Valpak and DRMG, with the best possible savings for the consumers of Canada. We are excited about the tremendous prospects for business owners to increase their return on investment on direct marketing by combining the forces and expertise from both companies.”
