We strategically identify and package story angles, then approach traditional media and online sources using pitches, releases, fact sheets and other tactics designed to produce the best news results for clients.

Digital Communication

We utilize social media tools like Twitter, Facebook and blogs to reach each of our specified target audiences. Likewise, we are capable of organizing and expediting website development for clients looking for a refreshed or completely new online presence.

We are frequently called upon to develop and execute e-newsletters for clients hoping to reach both internal and external audiences. We assist in developing messaging, crafting copy and managing all layout and design elements.

Copywriting

Call us “wordsmiths.” From magazine and newsletter articles to brochures and sales materials, we’re accustomed to writing effective copy that evokes emotion and action. Our grabbing headlines and attention-getting copy help spark a call-to-action for marketing campaigns. We also specialize in website copywriting as well as corporate business documents.

Marketing & Advertising

We help our clients develop comprehensive branding and re-branding campaigns. We assist in the development of an initial theme/concept, and then produce strategic online, print, outdoor and electronic advertising initiatives to support the overall campaign vision and goals. These initiatives can include anything from the production of new websites or videos to collateral material and advertisements.

Event Planning

We create meaningful events designed to attract media coverage or increased participants, depending on the nature of the event. The range of special events includes everything from news conferences and grand openings to ribbon-cuttings and dedications, as well as business meetings, golf outings, galas and other fundraising events.
