Throughout the year, the Valpo Chamber offers several opportunities to advertise your business.  The quarterly Valparaiso Magazine, the annual Membership Directory and Resource Guide, and the website, are all great ways to give an added boost to your marketing plan.  

In addition, the WORD on the Street Email Blast is a quick and easy way to advertise. Sent every Wednesday, these emails sell out quickly and are booking throughout 2017.

Coming this fall, we will also be publishing a new Quality of Life publication. Watch for more details.

For more information about any of these advertising opportunities, call Danielle at 219-462-1105 or email her here.
