Senior Level Marketing and Public Relations Professional That Gets Results!
Crowdfunding Campaign and Public Relations Expert!
I am an English and French marketing professional with over 20 years of experience. I manage accounts from Los Angeles to Toronto with a great amount of success and gusto. I specialize in Marketing, Branding, Tech PR and enjoy working on crowdfunding campaigns.
I have successfully participated at various levels and functions in multiple crowdfunding campaigns in 2015/16, and I am setting one up right now. Please note that I do not accept assignments paid on a percentage of the monies raised during a campaign. Most PR campaign for a crowdfunding will require at least 40 hours of solid work. It will depend on what stage of the campaign you would like me to get involved in and be responsible.
I am the founder and editor-in-chief of RPRNmag.com, a business newsmagazine for entrepreneurs and of RushPRNews.com, an online newswire for press releases and articles submission. My agency website is AHmarketingGroup.com
As a former editor at Hollywood Today and as a freelance journalist at Vator TV, covering business, emerging technology news and entertainment news as they pertain to the Hollywood "state of mind', I am current on the latest best PR and journalistic practices and usage of technology.
My approach to PR and marketing is one of positivity, focusing on promoting what is good and great in this world, and doing my best to change what isn't so good with my skills. I combine the latest web tools to successfully create, manage and measure success to good old fashion, people's skills.
My clients have been featured on the Today Show, Good Morning America, CNN, Fox News, MSNBC, The New York Times, Associated Press, Globe and Mail, Montreal Gazette, CBC, The Hour and many other news outlets.
I can develop, implement and manage your entire marketing campaign or just work on a smaller project.
If you want to obtain press coverage, I am the one you need to speak to about your goals and aspirations. But first, let's start with a strategy and a communication plan. I prefer to work on monthly retainer fee and not per hour.
Keep in mind that PR requires brain power and thinking, and one cannot rush through the process. It isn't as simple as sending an email to a reporter. It's about strategies, thinking, research and contact.
Let me give you an idea about the time required to perform tasks:
Writing a researched and comprehensive communication plan from scratch is between 20 hours and 30 hours.
Minimum hours required for a short media campaign: 25.
Crowdfunding PR Campaigns: budget 40 hours or more, it depends at what stage you bring your PR person on-board.
Writing a well-crafted press release with solid background information and a quote and Wire distribution: 8 hours
These are estimates only. It could take less time as it could more.
