We’re an Award-Winning PR Agency

This is our philosophy

  • Beyond Talk

  • Frankly, we’re not like other agencies. We focus on absolute results, not hourly-billing, sluggish PR processes typically offered by firms, which have yet to figure how to get out of their own way.

    That’s right, we don’t bill by-phone-call. No surprises here. We’ve been there, we’ve done that. In this new Business 2.0 climate, streamlined, agile and extremely efficient is the way to succeed. This has greatly influenced the way we do business. With key PR associates positioned throughout the media grid, Elevator Communications is connected by every 21st Century communications tool and web-driven metric on the planet. We’re virtual, responsive and highly efficient. And, we get results.


  • More Than Just The News

  • An email comes in from the New York Times. They want to interview our client. They’ve responded to a creative feature story idea we wrote and sent to the reporter. Odds are, the story isn’t simply about “news”. We’re former journalists, we develop compelling story angles that grab media attention.

    From this point we manage the entire process, from setting the client/reporter interview to submitting photos and visuals with follow up. It’s all in a days work at Elevator. We’ve done these thousands of times.


It’s Who You Know – And What You Know

We know reporters, hundreds of them across the media grid. We work with them all, every week, despite over saturated pitching by others. They know us by name, but, most importantly, by our reputation for creative, relevant stories that help them publish great articles. Trusted, symbiotic media relationships get you the ears and eyes of the media world. And that gets our clients a stronger bottom line.


  • Our Structure

  • Elevator is a modern virtual agency with employees spread across the U.S. and Western Europe. Our leadership and account management teams combines years of PR and journalism experience. You only work with the best people – no interns.
