How Do We Do It

Simply put, Brownstone PR delivers across all mediums.

Whether through earned media results, social media engagement, or grass roots communications efforts, we work to position you as an industry leader, and get you face-to-face with your target audience.

Key Players

We’re the “forever young:” A dynamic mix of experienced, yet innovative professionals that are cutting edge, yet practical. We run on coffee, ‘90s music, and a passion for excellence, that clients crave. We understand traditional models and tactics, and how to incorporate them with evolving business trends. We spend half of each day developing new, untapped ideas on how to elevate your company to meet and exceed business goals. We’re good at what we do, and stand by our unrivaled press clippings, front page features, connections/partnerships, and having created successful campaigns for many of the largest, well-known brands and individuals, in the nation.

Trends are ever evolving, and what worked 5 years ago will barely get your target audience's attention today. You need a team that gets that. We do.
