Did you know that National Fuel offers Energy Partners 30% reimbursement for approved ads – up to $8,000 per year? This includes trade and home show booth co-op at a rate of 25% of the booth cost up to a maximum of $250.
There are a few basic guidelines, the most important is pre-approval. The Advertising Proposal (updated Jan 2016) needs to be submitted ten working days prior to the anticipated start date of any advertising. This form needs to be submitted by your company. Do not rely on your media contact or sales rep to submit these forms for you. Ultimately, the responsibility is that of your business office.
The National Fuel Co-op Advertising Department will assign a proposal number and respond to you via email. The pre-approval process assures that funding is still available.
After your ad runs, you will need to submit a Advertising Claim Form. Again, this is the responsibility of your company for prompt and efficient reimbursement. Be sure to include the Proposal Number, scripts, copies, invoices or photographs as needed based on your media type as outlined on the claim form.
For ease of submission, make copies of both forms with your company’s general information already typed or printed. That way you won’t have to complete a blank form each time.
You can reach the co-op department at 716-857-7625 or by email at firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any questions or concerns regarding payment or approval.
