“Pauline’s exceptionally broad knowledge of public and media relations couples with creativity enabled us to bolster our campaign strategy focused on military veterans. Pauline demonstrated strong technical knowledge and used her abilities to the fullest. Her performance marks her as a true professional.”

Denise Sherman
Commercial Real Estate Specialist, Carrow Real Estate Services


“Pauline used a very creative approach in helping me to launch my real estate career by providing me with steps on how to move forward in networking, marketing, and advertising myself and my credentials. She is not only thorough in her no-nonsense approach, but she is on-the-spot creative and developed a tag line for me which is humorous and memorable. I look forward to working with her in the future to see what other tricks she has up her sleeve!”

Expressions of Gratitude

Expressions of Gratitude needed an infusion of customers and revenue during a make-or-break year. Our branding strategy for this corporate and special-occasions gift basket company included two community service initiatives, “Baskets of Hope” and “Baskets of Learning,” and print, radio and television publicity campaigns. This integrated strategy energized business for Expressions of Gratitude and yielded a 30% increase in revenue over the prior year. The publicity generated lucrative corporate contracts, enabling Expressions of Gratitude to grow and sustain sales over the next two years to $2.3 million in annual revenue.


The Chamber of Southern Saratoga County

Sandwiched between two larger chambers of commerce, The Chamber of Southern Saratoga County needed an image campaign to position itself as dynamic organization with a significant history of achievements in one of upstate New York’s fastest growing counties. The 40th anniversary image campaign we developed produced record-breaking attendance and revenue numbers for Chamber events and more than 1.5 million positive media impressions. Spin-off campaigns sustained the momentum and contributed to twin milestones: The Chamber reached its long-held goal of attaining 1,000 members, and the organization was named “2014 Chamber of the Year” by The Business Council of New York State.

Bennett Contracting

For its 100th anniversary, Bennett Contracting wished to showcase its design and construction skills through a community service project and tell the company’s story of beginning as a plumbing shop and evolving into the area’s oldest and largest full-service home remodeling company in New York’s Capital District. Through our “Building Strong Roots” project, an employee team designed, constructed and installed a garden shed and grape arbor in a community garden where more than 50 families grow their own food. A media campaign followed the project from start to finish and generated more than one-half million positive print and broadcast impressions.
