At Konnect PR our method of travel is to maximize our time in one place by accomplishing as much as possible. For example, in the last 5 days Sabina and I have traveled with samples, press kits, luggage, and more by plane, train and automobile through the east coast to New York, Philadelphia and everywhere in between. While the thought of shlepping around in 10 lbs of clothing with an additional 15 lbs of various samples and press materials sounds unappealing (and believe me it is) the end result is well worth it. At our public relations agency we believe that we must constantly be where the press is, and the fact is that a lot of the national press is in New York. We pride ourselves on getting in front of those media contacts which we treasure and work with every day and creating a relationship that becomes much more valuable than a chain of e-mails and a couple of phone calls. In addition, we also pride ourselves on being in touch with our clients. Our client Olive Juice is based in a small suburb outside of Philadelphia. With a heavy onslaught of orders coming in, they found it difficult to get away for a moment to come and meet with us to plan 2011. So what did we do… hop a train to Philly, samples, luggage and all. While it may seem ilogical to leave the Los Angeles 75 degree weather to go a place where the high is about 15 or lower a day, this is what sets us apart from other PR agencies and this is why we do the amazing job we do. Below you can get an idea of what we have been dealing with on a daily basis. If this doesn’t show you that we are serious about our work/ clients than I don’t know what will!
