From Kyle: “You know, I really like this idea because it makes good business sense, but at the same time, the concept has a heart. Too many of us little guys are fighting against mega-corporations, and what they have that we don’t, quite simply, is good PR. I hope this might be of use to you.” Read on:
“If I was down to my last dollar, I’d spend it on public relations.” –-Bill Gates, Microsoft Founder
Portland, OR & Los Angeles, CA– $100 Dollar PR, a new and extremely unique boutique Public Relations Company will start its operations on January 14, 2013. Created by Laurena Marrone, an industry veteran with over 20 years of diverse experience in the field, the company will level the PR playing field by offering high quality publicity services for small businesses, entrepreneurs, artists, non-profits and more… all for the incredibly low fee of just $100 dollars.
The idea for $100 Dollar PR came in the midst of an economy in turmoil. With companies earning less and spending more, marketing budgets have been slashed across the board. And in many instances, small businesses and individuals have never been able to take advantage of public relations services because the fees are typically out of their reach.
Tommy the Clown, star of the acclaimed documentary, RIZE, and president of the Tommy the Clown Foundation says “$100 Dollar PR is critically needed by the nonprofit world, especially the arts. We’re all struggling right now to make ends meet and have no economical way to get the word out to the public about our events or charitable work in the community.”
$100 Dollar PR’s concept is simple, yet comprehensive. Clients will be able to get their message out to targeted media contacts via a professionally written press release that is distributed by one of the industry’s leading distribution services, www.vocus.com. In addition, $100 Dollar PR will provide the critical follow up contact often overlooked by those without experience in the public relations business. In essence, every client will receive the same quality of service one would expect from a high priced public relations company. One of the many great benefits of the service is that it can be used just once, or many times throughout the year, for virtually any newsworthy purpose.
“It was almost impossible to find a PR company to provide professional services at an affordable price says Leslie Garbett, owner of Coreout Fitness. $100 Dollar PR will enable us to utilize a marketing avenue that we would normally not have access to within our budget. They provide the same services for a flat $100, where many PR companies charge hundreds, or even thousands of dollars.”
The company’s founder, Laurena Marrone, has worked in the public relations field since 1985. She has experience with virtually all facets of the trade, and has worked for such prominent organizations as MCA Records and The Portland Art Museum. Her freelance work includes publicity campaigns for everything from international events to books, theater, dance, small business and much more. “As someone who has been in this profession for over 2 decades, I became frustrated with the lack of accessibility to public relations services for start-up companies, small businesses, individuals and non-profit organizations, says Marrone. “I have always been an advocate for the industry as a whole, and $100 Dollar PR gives me the opportunity to help those who need it most.”
