More Money at No Cost: Co-Op Management

Did you say free money?

Co-op funds offer financial assistance to clients by paying for a portion of their advertising costs. Effectively using your allotted company funds toward marketing and advertising can be a valuable tool for businesses looking to increase their visibility, sales, and branding. Co-op marketing is a great way to get the most for your money.

What is Co-Op Advertising?

Co-op marketing programs are designed to help your business pay for a portion of advertising costs. Typically, they are calculated or accrued based on a percentage of a business’s sales for that partner’s products or services. Media Venue has over 25 years of experience with the varying aspects of co-op advertising management, including creative compliance guidelines, accrual regulations, reimbursement, and more. Eliminating the loopholes that often cause co-op dollars to go unspent is crucial to running a successful co-op or group advertising initiative.

What do Co-Op programs pay for?

Co-op funds are a win-win for everyone. As the provider your business will sell the company’s products and services to the best of your ability. In turn the corporation will give you money back to spend on advertising. We all know that an increased marketing presence generates more sales. Large corporations have a vested interest in your success and by providing things like marketing dollars, promotional products, displays, and more, this will increase the likelihood of generating more sales. Again, win-win!

How do I get Co-Op funds?

Your company can use these funds for our comprehensive digital marketing and/or traditional marketing services. Our team will plan, create, manage, and place all the advertising efforts of mixed media and then finalize by submitting the claims for reimbursement.
