What does PA Hometown Deals provide?

PA Hometown Deals provides an affordable method for local businesses by grouping businesses into a “co-op” to share the cost of advertising.

What makes this direct mail postcard program unique?

First, the postcard measures 9 inches by 12 inches. It’s like a billboard in your mailbox! Unlike most co-op programs, your customers are forced to see both sides of the postcard and your advertisement without flipping pages, opening envelopes, or coming across an insert. Your ad will have 100% visibility and 100% exposure.

Second, each business is exclusive. No competitors allowed on the postcard.

Lastly, no contracts required. Of course, we recommend trying this method for a few months, especially if you are new business for branding purposes. But you are not required to sign any contracts so you can try it once or advertise seasonally.

How does this program work?

After securing an ad spot and paying 50% down, your ad is designed to your specifications unless you have your own ad designed. Final payment is made once a final proof is approved. Postcards will be printed and shipped using the US Postal Service’s EDDM (Every Door Direct Mail). Most co-ops will range from 5,000 to 10,000 postcards. And with an average of 2.59 residents per household, your advertisement will be SEEN by 10,000 to 25,000 people! What other advertising program can saturate your local area like this one?

What does the program cost?

The cost of participating in this co-op program varies based upon the size of your ad and the number postcards being mailed. For example: ad prices range from $195 to $350 for 5,000 postcards and $350 to $600 for 10,000. So for 3.5 cents, you can put your business and coupons in front of THOUSANDS of local customers. Please contact us for more information about rates in your area.

What payment methods do you accept?

Currently, we would prefer business/personal checks. If you need to make payment by credit card, we can take payment over the phone or online through Paypal.

What areas are available to participate in?

Currently, PA Hometown Deals has programs available in the White Oak/McKeesport and North Huntingdon/Irwin areas. If you are in close proximity to these areas, please contact us if you would like to participate. If you are in a completely new area, PA Hometown Deals would be interested in speaking with you about beginning a co-op in your area.

Do you have any special offers at this time?

PA Hometown Deals offers discounts when your ad runs in multiple locations. We also offer referral discounts when you tell other businesses about our program and they participate in the program.
