How We Can Help
Our team of professionals stand ready to help you reach our unique military market through a variety of marketing channels associated with our many MWR programs. By partnering with MWR your brand will be positioned to gain market share through direct sponsorship engagement and advertising opportunities.
- Signage and Promotional Materials: promotional materials are strategically placed in high-traffic locations where they reach thousands of our installation community members daily.
- Print and Digital Media: showcase your business in our weekly publication ("the bite" e-newsletter) on our website, or on digital media throughout the installation. These platforms allow us to target specific groups where key messages can reach your target market.
- Product Sampling and Demonstration: place your product directly in the hands of your target market through sample distribution or displays. Arrangements can be made for on-site sampling, demonstrations and coupon distribution in conjunction with event/program promotion.
- Cross Promotion: we work closely with our counterparts in the Army, Navy and Marines. If you want to reach across all branches of service, we are happy to work a joint program or point you in the right direction. Event cross marketing is also available in DoD agencies, national guard and military reserve units located on DLA installations, which ensures our sponsors receive maximum impact.
