What They Say

What some of our clients have said about working with us … 

In The Pickled Beet’s 17 years in business, I’ve never enjoyed working with a marketing and PR team more than Thrive PR. We’ve tried all sorts of marketing approaches: solopreneurs, large agencies, small agencies, in-house teams, and none have worked better for us.

From day one, Kelly and her team hit the ground running. They almost immediately understood our brand positioning, our strengths, and challenges, and were able to put forth strategies to help meet our goals.

They provide a unique approach – tailoring their services to their clients’ individual needs rather than a cookie-cutter, one-size-fits-all package.

Their creative is always on-point and well executed.

Quality marketing and PR is critical to success and with Thrive PR the ROI is unmatched.”

Best of all, when engaging Thrive PR, they are truly an extension of our team and a trusted partner.”
