'If I was down to the last marketing dollar, I'd spend it on PR' -- Bill Gates


PR = Earned Media

Advertising is paid media... PR is earned media.  Publicists compel reporters, editors, and producers to bring a positive story about your event, product, business or brand to the public.

Relationships with the writers, editors and producers who can bring your brand, product, or event to life through print, online, TV and radio are essential. OTRD has spent a decade cultivating these essential connections in Metro Detroit.

Customized, Creative, Compelling

A compelling press release is the key to sparking interest among journalists and news outlets!  

OTRD will work with you to determine the most significant and unique positioning for your brand.  We provide every client with a custom PR proposal, creatively crafted  press releases, personal pitches to press, and thorough post-campaign recaps.
