Q: Can you give us more insights into your offering?
A: At Valux Digital, our mission is to provide high-quality digital marketing and PR to businesses and projects of all shapes and sizes. Our primary objective is to offer scalable and sustainable growth strategies to brands all over the world. Every Valux campaign is uniquely designed to work cohesively towards a shared omnichannel performance objective.
As an award-winning full service marketing and PR agency, the Valux Digital team has longstanding relationships with top-tier national media outlets as well as in local newspapers, television, and radio media across the country. We help brands achieve strong media presences by combining our expertise in branding with earned media coverage, media advertising, and digital marketing.
News coverage provides third party credibility to grow and protect the brand during both the short- and long-term. We aggressively and consistently pursue story opportunities with national, industry, regional and local media outlets to bring companies desired attention to achieve their strategic goals.
We’re an internationally recognized PR service provider, and a member of the Forbes Communications Council and the Entrepreneur Leadership Network. Our work has been featured in Forbes, Entrepreneur, Huffington Post, CIO Magazine, Business.com, ABC News, and hundreds of other outlets!
While media pitching generates earned media coverage for the brand, our data-driven programmatic media advertising offers a powerful way to market a brand through highly visual images and high-quality video marketing on local newspapers, broadcast television, and radio in virtually every community and industry in North America. Our local news inventory makes it possible for brands to reach and engage users via publications that they are already visiting and already trust for local news.
By utilizing data-driven analytics, we strive to create effective, fully-customizable digital marketing campaigns that put forward the future of marketing. It is our goal at Valux to improve efficiency, affordability, rapidity, quality, and – most importantly – results.
Q: What has been your biggest challenge in achieving company goals, and how have you overcome them?
A: The global pandemic has expedited the growth of our industry. Businesses are shifting their advertising efforts to digital marketing as they embrace online operations models. Business hurdles also lie here. As demand grows, competition also grows. Customers have more options and are more cautious about spending during the pandemic, causing longer sales cycles.
Creating strong ties with top talent and industry partners helps us turn competition into opportunity. With dedication and determination, we’ve successfully expanded our portfolios and catalogs so as to establish and verify an increasing trend of revenue. As we grow into a full-service marketing and PR agency, we also launch a new brand.
As a result of the Coronavirus pandemic and the associated worldwide lockdowns, the number of home-based businesses has increased. According to the Census Bureau, a whopping 4.4 million new online businesses have been established in the United States since March 2020, when the COVID-19 pandemic first broke out. In considering our new brand uPro Digital, a brand whose mission is to empower nimble, dynamic startups and companies in their journey towards increased online exposure, higher conversion rates, and greater profit, this is a promising figure.
New businesses often lack the knowledge, time, and resources to market themselves appropriately, and are unlikely to have a large enough budget to afford more traditional, expensive, and inflexible digital marketing strategies. Through uPro, these businesses were able to achieve their goals in a very effective way, without breaking the bank. It is not only our service offering that is extremely diverse and fully tailored to each individual customer’s needs, but also its cost-effective pricing that makes our solutions fully viable for companies without access to large budgets for branding and digital marketing.
Today more than ever, we understand and embrace the crucial role played by factors such as marketing storytelling, customer-centricity, artificial intelligence, and persuasive content. In a world that is increasingly fractured and in which consumers crave communication and connection, we aim to position ourselves as the missing link between startups and their customers.
Through the launch of uPro Digital, we are able to stand out from our competitors. The challenge turned out to be a success.

That’s why numerous members of our design and marketing team have taken home awards over the years. Whether it is exceptional content or standout infographics, Valux is defined by resourcefulness – not complacency.

Here at Valux everyone takes pride in the work they produce and the relationships they build along the way. As a result, each portfolio of work serves as a living testament to the Valux brand and our passion for what we do.
