Service Description

Every business owner wants to help their business grow, and develop and strengthen relationships with customers. Public Relations is the most cost-effective way to do just that, and offers the advantage of raising brand awareness and credability unlike with paid advertising.

This visibility also tends to make your business appear larger and more established than it may be, which may help you secure partnerships, customers and funding.

PR is also good for your bottom line. It is much less expensive than advertising and the benefits can be much more substantial than with advertising. One good media placement can lead to a substantial increase in sales and tremendous growth, and because many small businesses have a unique story to tell, they are interesting to the media.

I can help you reach your goals by developing the right public relations strategy for your business model.

I've been successful in helping organizations raise their public profile and strengthen external relationships through a variety of activities including, but not limited to:

Press Release Writing and SEO
Media Relations Campaigns
Content Creation and Optimization
Social Media Strategy and Management
Video Production
Direct Marketing
Website Optimization Consulting

Together we can be successful in finding the right mix of public relations activities to help your organization grow.
