What is public relations?


That is a question we receive from clients all of the time. Public relations is a strategic communication process that builds mutually beneficial relationships between organizations and their publics.

That’s clinical definition of what we do, but to us, public relations is about building and maintaining relationships with those who are the most important to your organization. It is about telling a story in a way it will matter. It is about sharing important information that will make a difference. It is about giving value.

As a public relations firm, we blend traditional public relations with content creation, content marketing, social media strategy, and website development transforming static news into conversations and bringing your message directly to the people you want to reach online. In addition, we protect those hard-won relationships with online reputation management and crisis communications.

Let’s talk about how we can get your story out.
