The MACIAS PR Depth – Our Expertise and Strategy

By Mark Macias

The depth and expertise of MACIAS PR goes deeper than most other PR firms.

If you look at our roster depth – and the types of media campaigns we run – you will see a diverse portfolio of clients. And not just in simplistic B2C industries, but also complicated B2B industries.

MACIAS PR has led media campaigns for Congressional candidates, dating apps, consumer products and apps, weight loss programs, compliance and law firms. We’ve also run B2B media campaigns for pharma, healthcare and healthtech platforms.

Despite the diversity of those clients, one thing remains consistent. MACIAS PR continually delivers tier one placements with the biggest name in news. So how do we do it?

What our clients say about MACIAS PR

By Mark Macias

I continually hear from potential clients that they got burned by their previous PR firm.

It’s a shame but anyone can put up a shingle and call themselves a PR firm. This is why it’s so important to do your due diligence before you hire your PR firm. You also need to ask the right questions.

  • What kind of track record has this PR firm established?
  • Who is the leader behind the strategy?
  • What experience does the PR firm have in your sector?
  • What do their current and past clients say about them?

I love that last question because to date, we have several clients that MACIAS PR has worked with for years. I think more important, we don’t even have a written agreement anymore. Our clients trust us and we trust them.

Thank you flowers from a Client

Earlier this month, MACIAS PR got a token of appreciation from one of our clients. See the picture of flowers in our office? We got those flowers from a client who we have worked with for more than 2 years.

When was the last time you sent flowers as a thank you to a client? I don’t say this to brag. I share these flowers with you to let you know that MACIAS PR puts our clients first in everything.

When our team secures a publicity or news story for a client – we celebrate with you. We know our business will only succeed with your business growth. It’s a relationship that you can best experience with a fellow business owner.

PR around your Clients – Telling your Story through Customers

By Mark Macias

PR is more than just telling your story through the media. An alternative and equally influential media campaign will use customers to tell your story.

This form of PR, positioning your customers as characters, is very effective when it comes to hyping the quality of your services. Of course, it must be true. Reporters can read through hype when it’s not backed by substance. So how can you do this with your brand?

PR is like a River when it comes to Consistent Media Placements

By Mark Macias

A consistent and successful media campaign is like a river. It must continually move and replenish itself with new ideas. A fast-moving river lures you in with its sound, smell and eyes – and essentially appeals to your senses.

The best PR campaigns must also appeal to those same sensories.

Duration builds relationships with clients, but when it comes to media campaigns, time can frequently make campaigns more challenging.

How do you continually find that next big idea for the media interested? This is when brainstorming and curiosity become a major factor.

Clients in the Media – MACIAS PR Accountability Report


By Mark Macias

Memorial Day is right around the corner, but MACIAS PR is not in vacation mode. We are still securing media placements for our clients with magazines, newspapers and TV.

The week leading up to Memorial Day Weekend is notoriously difficult when it comes to securing media placements. I can say from experience, TV newsrooms are understaffed as reporters, producers and photographers request vacation days to maximize the long holiday weekend.

Despite that obstacle, MACIAS PR secured two TV segments for clients in Baltimore and Philadelphia. We also secured a story with the largest newspaper in Houston. And our clients are in two national magazines. You can see those placements in the above photo.

Client TV Segment on the NYC Morning Show

By Mark Macias

Potential clients are ambitious when it comes to publicity. They frequently tell me they want their products to reach the biggest audience on TV.

You can’t blame them. Bigger is usually better, right? Actually, that’s not always the case.

You want to place your product where your consumers and clients are located. It sounds simplistic enough, but it’s over-looked as a strategy when it comes to PR. Your PR strategy should align with your goals – first.
