Pay Per Interview Publicity®
In 1987, Media Relations rocked the PR industry when we pioneered our game-changing Pay Per Interview Publicity® performance-based PR model. Since that time, our results-driven strategies have helped launch multi-million dollar businesses, and to create strong consumer demand for entirely new product categories.
We specialize in integrating traditional and digital media, social media and websites; this results in more impactful publicity campaigns. From blogs and posts designed to increase SEO, to feature articles and TV/radio segments, we become our clients’ marketing partners. Check out our blog to see additional samples of our work.
