Public Relations & Media

Do you think public relations is only media relations? It is so much more. We will help you identify a public relations strategy to drive awareness, change attitudes and move people to action. It’s all about building trusting relationships with the customers you need to succeed.

Public relations leverages your earned media, social media and owned communication channels to achieve your goals. We’ve placed our clients in local and national media, from the Star Tribune, business publications, WCCO, KARE, KSTP, and FOX to the Washington Post, NPR and CNN. Media coverage builds brand awareness. Leverage it across multiple channels to drive results.
