There’s only one thing that will increase your product’s sales more than a good news story.

And that’s HUNDREDS of them! …

Are you tired of your product being a best-kept secret? Let us tell your story to the masses. Here’s the secret to our success:

Our Pay Per Interview Publicity® pricing model. And here’s how we do it:


For 30 years we’ve rocked the PR world by taking on the risk of either getting media coverage or not getting paid. Our Pay Per Interview Publicity® pricing model means we charge per media story we arrange, not by the hour. Working under constant pressure to perform has sharpened our skills and made us experts at arranging media coverage. Our pricing model also guarantees that our clients get publicity for their money. But that’s not all.

Today the Internet makes your media coverage doubly valuable because you can reuse your stories again and again in digital marketing. You can post and repost to your heart’s content, creating an ocean of Internet content. That’s good for improved SEO, searchability and credibility. The TV appearances and articles we arrange for you are credible witnesses for your product. People believe what they learn from the media.

If you’re looking for a low-cost way to reach the masses and increase sales, do what hundreds and hundreds of companies have done: put us to work arranging media coverage for your company and its products. We invite you to call Vice President of Media Production Heather Champine at 952-697-5269 for a free Mediagenic Analysis. Heather is a partner in our agency and manages all of our publicists. She’ll give you an estimate of how many reporters and producers would be interested in publishing a story about your product and how much it would cost. Ten minutes on the phone with her and your eyes will be opened to an entirely new perspective on marketing.

Give her a call, 952-697-5269. No one knows more about persuading the media to run stories than Heather. This could be the breakthrough marketing channel you’ve been looking for.

 In this video, CEO Lonny Kocina explains our approach and why it works.

Promote Consumer Products with Media Coverage

Our proven strategies have helped launch multi-million dollar businesses and empowered big-name clients to expand their market share. We’ve also helped create strong consumer demand for entirely new product categories. No agency or PR firm knows more about getting and leveraging publicity, or has arranged more media stories, than we have.

Rhoda Olson of Great Clips

Great Clips CEO Rhoda Olson shares how the media stories arranged by Media Relations help her customers understand the benefits of new features that Great Clips offers, such as an online check-in system. Media stories help her franchisees connect with their communities. She says, “I also like media coverage because of its massive reach and its low cost per impression. Dollar per dollar, it’s a really smart use of some of your marketing budget.”

Media Relations CEO Lonny Kocina steps back in time to share how our agency helped to launch Breathe Right Nasal Strips, and introduces a news clip sharing the story of Breathe Right founder Dan Cohen.

As Lonny explains, Breathe Right’s Dan Cohen “admits he didn’t have millions to spend like the big pharma companies, but he was also certain if we could just get him in front of reporters and producers where he could tell his story, he’d get both customers and distribution. And he was right.”
