In the world of marketing and public relations, there’s a lot of fluff.
We don’t have time for that, and we’re pretty sure you don’t either.
As a consultancy working with small businesses since 2010, we’ve learned that being efficient, nimble and hyper focused on our clients’ goals will get everyone where they need to be. We take a “No BS” approach to media relations and marketing strategy, providing feedback on how we think particular initiatives will fare, brainstorming fresh ideas to amplify your message and changing course when something isn’t working the way we thought it would.
We don’t see ourselves as an “outside contractor” but rather as a true team member and collaborator. You get the advantage of a senior strategist who’s worked with dozens of businesses without the overhead of hiring a senior employee or the cost of engaging with a large marketing or PR agency.
Our work spans a variety of industries, including food, mom/parent brands, tourism, retail, education, technology and B2B. Our Boston-based team has strong local connections and also works on national campaigns.
At Seven Hills, we’re here to hear your story, package it up neatly and deliver it to your target audience in a way that resonates with them. Contact us for more information on how we can help your business meet your marketing and publicity goals.
