The Editorial and Strategy Behind MACIAS PR
At MACIAS PR, every client works directly with the founder of the firm. Macias says it’s like having an Executive Producer on your team, Identifying the best news angles for your business.
“The owner of every business always treat his clients and customers better than any sales guy,” said Macias. “It’s no different with MACIAS PR. We put our clients’ goals first and out-think the competition when it comes to strategy and execution. Our competitive streak shows when it comes to selling stories to the media. We fight for stories and don’t give up.”
Macias predicts his firm will continue to grow but will never lose the personal touch that makes every client personal.
“MACIAS PR is not quite a teenager, and that’s a good thing” said Macias. “We’re not lazy or worried about how we look, like most teens. We just want to make our clients proud. This PR firm will grow based on our media deliverables but our personal interaction with clients and reporters will never change.”
