"I have been an extremely happy client of KMR Public Relations for the past three years. As a surgeon we spend years in medical school, residency and fellowship training honing our surgical skills. However, this schooling leaves us totally unprepared from a business standpoint to enter and succeed in private practice. No matter how good our skills or results may be, if no one know who you are or where to find you, you will lose out to our less skilled, untrained competitors who have more business savvy.
Public relations have proven to be a very cost-effective, ethical and successful path that has allowed my practice to flourish even during the recent economic downturn. After just one month with KMR my name was featured in several national publications with circulation in the millions. Within one year they had booked guest appearances for me on all the major network shows you can name, including the TODAY Show, the Early Show, CNN Headline News, FOX News and Inside Edition.
In the past three years I have become a featured expert on all my local television stations on a regular basis. In print media I have been an expert commentator in a range of publications from the New York Times, Washington Post, the Miami Herald, Life & Style and Star Magazine. This press exposure has allowed me to stay busier than most surgeons during the recession. In addition, it has enabled me to keep my prices higher than everyone in my area because of increased name-recognition and perceived value. In summary, I firmly believe that KMRPR has been an essential part of my success as a surgeon. I recommend them highly without the slightest reservation."
"It has been a pleasure for Sothys USA to have been working with KMR Communications for several years now. The staff is very dedicated and their attention to detail is extremely important to them. Follow-ups and follow-throughs get done! The KMR team work well together, as they depend on each other and count on each other to carry on projects. We enjoy working with KMR and look forward to a continuous relationship."
Bruno Jamais Restaurant Club, New York City
"KMR Communications, provided public relations services for my Manhattan venue Bruno Jamais Restaurant Club for several years. During my time with KMR I very likely had more media coverage than any other restaurant/restaurateur in The United States. There was rarely a week that went by without multiple media placements spanning television, newspapers, magazines, and internet coverage.
Some of the highlights of my campaign included coverage or appearances on Fox Five, CNN, LXTV, and Bravo TV's "The Real Housewives of New York City." Highlights of my print placements included multiple mentions in the New York Post's prestigious "Page 6," The Daily News, Trump Magazine, Where New York, Agenda Magazine, Nightclub and Bar Magazine, Panache Magazine and literally hundreds of other first rate media outlets.
Their approach to PR was creative and truly involved "out of the box" thinking that enabled my establishment to have ongoing media coverage. In addition, KMR Communications, produced several high profile media events at my restaurant with celebrity guests such as Sting, Russell Simmons, Supermodel Carol Alt, the cast of 'The Real Housewives of New York," socialites and network news personalities. KMR was also successful in securing lengthy "profile pieces" that covered me as a "personality" in addition to my establishment. Katherine Rothman and the KMR Staff handled all of these events like true professionals and were extremely organized and efficient in their execution of these events attended by hundreds of media.
Lastly, their attention to detail was impeccable as was their sincere interest in the ongoing welfare of my establishment. I would recommend them without hesitation to any entity seeking to increase their level of recognition and volume of business."
"KMR is an outstanding Public Relations agency. I am particularly impressed with their communication skills, both internally and externally. The KMR team proved to be good listeners, always working to understand the client’s strategy and point of view. On the other hand, KMR is never afraid to give direct professional advice, based on their considerable experience, even if that advice runs counter to the client’s initial opinion. This is an invaluable trait for any professional business consultancy. KMR is one of the best."
"I enjoyed working directly with the KMR team; they are a very close knit working family and are truly informed on what is going on in the media world. The prep time they put into working one on one with their clients is undeniably elegant. For a small business starting out, KMR gives the white glove treatment into making you feel extraordinary. I would highly suggest putting your confidence into KMR, their boutique style and extreme organization is what you need to get the job complete."
"My name is Tami Dimmerman and I am President and Founder of Le Baby Inc. We have a hair gel product for kids and babies and are working on our next product in our line. We made the decision to switch to KMR Communications after a few other failed attempts with PR firms. Joining KMR was the best decision for Le Baby Inc. and it has really catapulted us to another level. We have only been with them since October of 2009 and already they have managed to get us in some popular online and print media outlets such as Baby Talk Magazine. KMR has gotten us on 5 local news stations to date (including Las Vegas, San Diego and Philadelphia) and I’m really excited about what they have store for us in the upcoming future. My team is very creative in pitching their ideas and work very hard for me as their client. I couldn’t be happier with KMR and can’t wait to see what this new year will bring."
LashFood worked with KMR Communications for a period of approximately 2 years. During that time, they secured 350 media placements for our company spanning magazines, print, internet and television. At the time we started with KMR, we only had one product to promote. We were incredibly pleased with their ability to continue to provide consistent and quality media coverage and find innovative ways to "spin" our product so that it was constantly relevant and placed in top tier media outlets. Eventually we did roll out two more products and when the firm had the three products to promote simultaneously it only heightened their ability to assure the kind of media coverage that provides the credibility and exposure that it so important to be competitive in today’s cosmetic/skincare market place. Some of the media highlights of our campaign included: The prestigious beauty trade magazines: Les Nouvelles Esthetiques, Dermascope, Nails Magazine, Skin Inc, Spa Magazine. On the consumer side, a sampling of our placements included: People Magazine, The Miami Herald, In Touch Magazine, OK! Magazine and WFLA TV among hundreds of others. We thoroughly enjoyed working with the management and staff at KMR Communications. We found them incredibly responsive and attentive to our needs and goals. Although we are located in California and the firm is in New York, we were always kept abreast of their progress via detailed weekly e-mail reports and phone meetings. The team at KMR are true PR professionals and we would recommend them highly to those seeking to increase their name recognition and brand awareness among consumers and the trade.
I have worked with KMR Communications for a period of approximately 8 months. During that short time, they secured impressive and high-profile media placements for my daughter Chelsea Krost, national radio personality and teen advocate, spanning magazines, print, internet and television. I am incredibly pleased with their ability to continue to provide consistent and quality media coverage; and find innovative ways to position Chelsea in media. KMR offers very personal and in-depth representation on behalf of their clients. KMR’s team of publicists is creative, resourceful and industrious. Quality service is first and foremost in everything they do. Some of the media highlights of her campaign include FOX News, Good Day New York, TeenVoices.com, Worth Magazine, College Magazine, GirlsLife.com, Yahoo! and The Sun-Sentinel. Chelsea and I thoroughly enjoy working with the management and staff at KMR Communications. I find them incredibly responsive and attentive to our needs and goals. The team at KMR are true PR professionals and I would recommend them highly to those seeking to increase their name recognition and brand awareness among consumer and trade press.
I engaged KMR Communications to perform public relations for my Las Vegas oculo-facial plastic surgery practice. I am Board Certified by the American Osteopathic Board of Ophthalmology and Otolaryngology Head and Neck Surgery and a Fellow of the American Academy of Cosmetic Surgery. I completed my graduate studies at Columbia University in New York before attending medical school in Miami, Florida. I was and am keenly aware that in order to remain competitive and take my practice to the next level that I needed to engage a NYC public relations firm with the media clout, connections, and creativity to help me achieve my goals. After doing extensive research on New York City public relations firms who maintained a niche in medical PR, I met with and joined the roster of KMR clients. It is a decision I have been delighted with. I have been extremely impressed with their boutique style agency approach, knowledge of my sub-specialty, personal attention and creative energy. Within a short time of signing with the firm I was featured in media outlets such as "Access Hollywood," "In Touch Magazine," "Las Vegas Review Journal," and "Life & Style Magazine" to name but a few. I would highly recommend KMR Communications to medical doctors such as myself who enjoy a good reputation but need that extra edge to set them apart from the competition.
As a new company, the decision to hire a public relations firm was a major step for us, and finding the right firm to represent our company had become a daunting process until I met Katherine Rothman, President of KMR Communications I had found KMR Communications after typing "best PR firms in NYC" in my Google search bar, and was immediately impressed after reading about her education, work history and extensive experience in public relations. But it wasn't until I actually spoke with Kathy that I realized that she was much more than just an impressive bio. She was genuine, down to earth, and passionate. She not only understood my company's vision, but she took it and ran with it! And it gets even better. With Katherine Rothman comes an incredible team of smart, professional and incredibly talented executives that makes KMR Communications "one of the best PR firms in NYC". Moon and Ghazal have been incredible to work with, and have secured placements for us in various national, regional and online media outlets. Our PR campaign with KMR will have long lasting effects, and in the world of PR, it doesn't get better than that! They are truly amazing.
