PUBLIC RELATIONS

Newsflash: media engagement can jump-start business growth and convey momentum. Are you telling your story in all the places you should? 

Third-party editorial endorsement is a key component of elevating your brand.  The credibility drawn from strategic stories and curated content that appears in media channels important to your business can drive business leads and convey a sense of momentum important to winning in a competitive field.  Your business story is strong when you tell it—and even better when a respected publication tells it for you.

Our team of media relations professionals are focused on nurturing relationships with major business, trade and consumer media. From recommending compelling visuals to curated pitching, we provide the means for editors to breathe life into your story, and we connect with the reporters who will be able to tell your story to audiences meaningful to you.

From promoting announcements to handling issues management and creating media-friendly events, we bring your story to life with passionate media pitching and smart public relations campaigns:

Editors, Impressed:

“All I can say is WOW. Thank you for making my job so easy! First and foremost, the content here is great. And the way you’ve pulled everything together, with the great headlines and excerpts and photos–it’s so helpful.”

– Recent comment from an editor of a trade publication (New York, New York)

Clients, Delighted

“It’s good subject knowledge that links the client’s people with the reporters because Akrete knows the reporters and what they usually do. I think that knowledge gives great confidence to the clients—that they can speak, that they are well-briefed. That they are going to have a generally good experience.”

– Susan Reisler, Vice President, Media Profile and supervisor of Team Akrete’s work on a real estate investment management firm’s public relations program (Toronto, Ontario, Canada)


Deals, Triggered

“We received a call today from a developer that I worked with when we were at Mesirow Financial from 1990-1998. He sent us a $20mm deal and a $52mm deal due to seeing my photo in the magazine. Your work is already paying off.”
