With publicity on your side,
you can't lose

I work with small business owners and entrepreneurs to get their name out there with the big dogs. Just because you are a one-man or one-woman show doesn't man that you aren't entitled to a media feature. Let me do the work as your publicist and get your business featured while you sit back and focus on being the entrepreneur that you are.

What Publicity Can
Do For You

Publicity plays such a huge role in boosting brand visibility and credibility for all business owners. It helps them reach a wider audience, establish authority in their industry, and attract new customers. Big-named legacy media companies have millions of readers a month and when your business gets featured, those eyeballs are on you.

When you hire a publicist like me, you can enhance your reputation and build trust with your target market. Publicity also creates opportunities for you to share your unique stories, values, and offerings with a large audience. This helps increase your brand awareness and drive traffic to your website or your physical location.

Here's Why it Matters

In today's digital age, where online visibility is crucial for success, harnessing the power of the media and publicity helps your digital footprint grow, and positions you as an expert online so when your target clients Google search keywords associated with your business, you come up in the search rankings. People won't know you exist if your business isn't showing up online.

Let's Get Started

My PR Service Includes...

Media Relations

I build relationships with journalists, bloggers, and influencers to land media coverage for your business through press releases, interviews, and feature stories. Sit back, and watch your name get featured in the news.

Media Monitoring

After we land you a media feature, I will scour the internet to track media coverage, mentions, and analyzing media sentiment to gauge the impact of our PR efforts. This will let us both know the success of our efforts so far and help us make informed decisions for future outreach.

Media Training

When I land you a media feature through TV or digital, I will NOT leave you hanging. I will walk you through the journalist's process, how to answer questions, and how to represent your business positively.

From My Clients

“Mercedes is an exceptional PR professional! She’ll get you featured but what’s equally important to me is how much she guides and supports you along the journey. During times when a deal falls through at the last minute, she didn’t let me get discouraged and was our biggest cheerleader. And it paid off! She’s a phenomenal PR person and an amazing human being. So glad I found her!”

Amabel Akwa-Asare

Her journalism background and professionalism helps her target the best media for me, and I’ve been so happy with my press coverage."

Sharon Rose Hayward
Founder, Winning at Work

“Mercedes is one of the most talented journalists I’ve ever worked with – in fact, I’ve hired her not once, but twice! She has killer instinct for finding viral stories, a huge network of sources and editors, and an innate ability to connect with entrepreneurs and understand what makes them special. I wouldn’t miss a chance to work with her.”
