Who is Affinity Marketing?


Affinity Marketing began in 1993 with the idea to cross promote instantly redeemable coupons on egg packages as 94% of all shopper's buy eggs in their regular shopping trips at grocery stores. Since on that time Affinity has expanded cross advertising and promotions to every major department in the stores. Hundreds of millions of in-store ads/promotions for almost every major food company have been distributed over the last 15 years. Programs are national, regional, or account specific. All ads/promotions are implemented as "turn key"(see below) to make it easy for the branded companies to get their message to consumers at the best possible time, while they shop.
