Carli PR

a personal, customized & curated public relations service experience

 

Why Us

If quality and value matter to you, you won’t want to skip this part...

Carli PR is a boutique public relations agency built on the idea that, by staying small, we can remain focused on the individual objectives and strategic vision of each client, rather than feeding a bottomless business development engine. We only take on what we know we can handle, allowing us to be successful without compromising these brand values.

 

Although our clients will always benefit from our industry expertise, creative ideas, and extensive media network, they will never be forced to conform to rigid agency processes when working with us. 

Additionally, if clients desire services beyond those within our scope, we will custom-build their team through our affiliate network of established, qualified marketing and creative professionals. We don’t keep them on staff, but rather fold them in as contractors based on each individual client’s need. So- unlike at a full-service agency- clients aren’t paying for services in their monthly fees unless they are actually utilizing them.

Everyone we work with is not only a long-standing, trusted partner but also a veteran in their field. Our accounts are never staffed with junior or even mid-tier account representatives. Our clients deal directly with individual high-level consultants who have come together to personally manage their accounts.

Though Carli PR's primary expertise is in travel and hospitality, our agency has represented clients in industries spanning from enterprise SaaS and cutting-edge medical treatments, to community redevelopment and hunger relief advocacy. We are located in New York City, with an affiliate network in both New York and South Florida, with clients throughout both markets and beyond.

" I've always done our PR myself because working with other firms was always a hit or miss in results. But with Carli, EVERYTHING changed! Not only was she patient during our onboarding process, never trying to sell services that were not a good fit, and always kept that boutique feel to her services, but she also delivered big time! She completely reworked our messaging and even hired a couple of outside experts that were needed to wrap up the project using her well-connected network.

I love that she provided the guidance and let me handle what I could on my own to stretch our PR budget. Thanks to her, we scored Fodors' Travel and elevated our brand to a really professional level!

If you are looking for a compassionate, efficient, and devoted PR firm, hire Carli! And she is super fun to work with too, which makes meetings so much more interesting."
