Romeoville-based Allegra Marketing, Print, Mail was recognized recently by international franchise network Alliance Franchise Brands with the Marketing Trailblazer Award. Naperville residents and Allegra owners, Tom and Linda Wilhelm and their team developed the award-winning cross-media marketing campaign that combined direct mail, signs and banners, collateral, promotional product giveaways, Internet-based outreach and special offers to deliver its message and generate targeted sales leads.


“Small businesses like ours can leverage the latest in modern technology alongside traditional marketing and mailing strategies in a campaign that combines the best of print and electronic media,” said Allegra owner Tom Wilhelm. “Our ‘trailblazing’ campaign was multi-faceted to help us reach a wider audience base and at the same time showcase the capabilities we bring to the table to drive marketing success for local businesses. Strategic marketing isn’t just for the ‘big guys’ anymore. Small businesses often need to stretch their marketing dollars, so smarter marketing solutions that deliver results are a necessity. ”
