Public relations for start ups to small business
PR is so much more than getting your story in the media.
We’re certain you went into business to be found and be heard. So why muck around with your marketing? Stop trying to do bits and pieces.
Publicity Genie weaves traditional PR – media releases and media outreach – with digital and new media. Your audience does not just use one channel and many no longer get their news the old fashion way.
That is why our strategies encompass social media, blogging, grants, awards and video. We get to understand your target audience and take the story to them, making sure we create multiple touch points all eading back to you.
We love leverage … and that is our secret power. We know how to take one story and repackage it in 50 different ways.
It is called relationship building.
It takes time but it is worth it.
