“You can do anything, but not everything.” – David Allen
As a busy small business owner, I often fell into inconsistent patterns with marketing efforts – there were so many tasks that needed to get done daily at the restaurant that marketing was sometimes ignored.
Since partnering with PR Consulting, our marketing efforts have been more consistent in our message, presentation and frequency. We work together to come up with marketing plans and messages so our brand is well represented.
Patti has also been very valuable as an objective voice when we are contemplating new ideas or changes in our business model and she has been instrumental in social media management.
I would highly recommend PR Consulting to any entrepreneur looking to improve their marketing programs!

For literally years, I had the best of intentions of posting to our social media pages every week–it was even set up as a task on my calendar every Friday. Did it happen? Nope!
I would look at that calendar entry every week and cringe. The truth was, I didn’t have time to keep up with social media marketing and when I saw that calendar reminder it just added one more thing to my plate…and I wasn’t confident I was even doing it right.
When we finally decided to let go and partner with PR Consulting, it was a huge relief. I didn’t have to beat myself up every Friday or feel guilty because I didn’t post. Now, I look at our our social media pages and I’m proud of LaserPoint Awards.
Over that past few months, the quality of posts that have gone out is amazing and the content covers all the services LaserPoint offers. My consultations with Patti are so easy–she does her research and comes up with suggestions.
My advice to other small businesses is to let go! We all have skills we’re really good at so concentrate on those and let PR Consulting manage the social media marketing for you.

Working with PR Consulting has been incredibly important to me, especially in the midst of difficult economic times that impacted my industry. Patti’s consistent coaching and encouragement during that time made me want to keep moving forward with marketing; she helped with lead generation and customer relations programs that made a difference.
PR Consulting works to keep Hudson Remodeling’s name in front of our target audience by coordinating social media efforts and developing content for our website and blog.
Patti’s copywriting skills have directly resulted in better search engine rankings in several key markets; our website investment would not be producing results without her efforts.
I would recommend talking with Patti if you need marketing or social media help for your business; she is personable, easy to get along with, and her services are valuable.

We began working with PR Consulting about a month before opening our homestyle kennel business in Lynden. We had a lot of ideas but no coherent plan for branding and marketing the startup business.
Right from the start, Patti Rowlson got us organized and on track by developing a customized action plan and a detailed ‘to-do’ checklist. We loved that she helped us keep expenses lower by letting us choose which tasks we wanted to complete and what items we wanted her to handle for us.
Patti developed and maintains a WordPress website for us and helps manage the kennel’s Facebook page. We receive compliments on the website all the time and have built a healthy following on the social media site.
After our 6 month anniversary Patti put together an affordable customer satisfaction survey so we could measure progress and look for areas of improvement. The process was fun and very informative.
I recommend Patti to business associates all the time; she has made a huge impact on our ability to reach potential customers and educate them about the services offered at Rover Stay Over.
We appreciate the ongoing support and having one ‘go-to gal’ for all our marketing and publicity needs.

PR Consulting helped manage the re-branding process for my business in 2011/2012; there was a lot to do but Patti kept the marketing, advertising and branding projects on track so I could focus on my business during that time.
As a busy small business owner, I appreciate that Patti is always quick to respond to my needs; she gets things done, is a great listener, and does a nice job of communicating in a way that everyone understands.
Over the years, Patti has supported my business in a variety of ways including website management, publicity, social media, and advertising design; I trust her experience, advice and coaching.
