Full-service public relations firm provides more than marketing
If you are going to spend a day with MPA Strategies, you better wear some running shoes because they are always on the move.
The day might begin with a meeting about a rebranding initiative, next to a press conference about a new business coming to town, before heading over to a photoshoot at a garden store to showcase spring flowers. Then take a call about a presentation at an upcoming conference. Now it’s time for lunch.
The Cayce-based marketing firm is not just designing logos and pitching stories to media; they are submitting grants, creating social media content and developing plans for clients, including small towns, law firms and associations. Company founder and CEO Ashley Hunter started MPA 10 years ago and recently moved the office to the Cayce River Arts District.
Named a “Top 20 Under 40” by The State newspaper and a “2018 Woman of Influence” by the Columbia Regional Business Report, Hunter is recognized throughout the Midlands as a whip-smart, committed leader. The breadth of expertise MPA delivers is beyond the scope of garden-variety public relations and marketing firms.
As a full-service public relations and marketing firm with the added expertise of association management, legislative advocacy, grant writing and project funding and procurement, MPA Strategies is a unicorn in its field. Municipalities, associations and businesses rely on MPA to shine their image in the media, with the public and the business sector to help reach their audiences and achieve their goals. Every organization has a story to tell, and MPA is an expert at crafting that story and delivering it to the relevant audience through a channel and in a format that best suits the intended targets.
MPA understands that no one size fits all; its team of professionals customizes each project to the client and their targeted publics. Knowing how citizens, the media and businesses perceive an organization plays an enormous role in its overall success. That perception can be completely overhauled or merely tweaked by implementing a public affairs and management strategy.
MPA’s creative approach and belief in the value of both traditional public relations and digital media is what makes their team stand out. The goal is to eliminate the time required for self-promotion and instead focus on providing core functions to your organization. You take care of your job; MPA Strategies will take care of you.
