Expand your reach with Tour Stafford’s Marketing Co-Op Program.
Tour Stafford VA’s Marketing Co-Op Program provides discounted advertising rates to our local Tourism Advisory Group (TAG) partners. The Marketing Co-Op currently offers rates and options with three diverse media outlet vendors that provide a great reach and access to a variety of audiences. This is an ongoing program to provide marketing resources that help reach larger and targeted audiences for our TAG partners.
How it Works:
- To qualify for any of these discounts, the Tour Stafford VA logo is required to appear in all print and digital advertisements using these discounted rates. For digital advertisements, the Tour Stafford VA logo must link back directly to TourStaffordVA.com.
- Logos can be downloaded here for use. The Stafford County’s Tourism team requests you use the full-color Tour Stafford VA logo for the logo requirement.
- Download the Tour Stafford Marketing Co-Op sheet here, which provides detailed information of the media outlet vendor, advertising options, benefits, and offers.
- One you decide on what advertising program(s) you wish to participate in, fill out the Jotform request. This Jotform is sent to Courtney Swenson, Marketing Manager and she will connect you directly with the media outlet vendor. If you have any questions, you can contact her at Cswenson@staffordcountyva.gov.
