What can we do for you? How about we start off by a bit of talking? Because a menu of generic services doesn’t really say a great deal about what we can do. Of course, we could fill this page with a very long list of every single service we offer, but we don’t. Why? Because that is boring and we have a strict company policy against boring. Every business is unique. Each story requires a different combination of programs to effectively reach the people who need to hear it, read it or see it. We’ve only just met; we want to preserve a little mystery for later… Let’s be real. Sending out a press release is not going to cause customers and new business opportunities to magically appear at anyone’s doorstep. That’s why we do more. That’s why we pace the floor to come up with new ideas, new angles and new ways to align our clients’ business with news, events and stories that are most interesting to their target audience.Our strategies will include many In this era of over-stimulation and over-saturation, we take the time to cultivate ideas and stories that can makeactivities, some traditional, an impact—stories that actually get covered.
