I came to EMSI after being turned down by another PR agency because I wasn’t well-known and because my book was self-published. Neither point mattered to EMSI. They said I had great credentials and a message that would resonate with the media. They were right!
During and after my print campaign, I was featured in hundreds of print and online publications, including Glamour, Self and Prevention magazines. It was far more than I ever expected!
Although PR is important — after all, that’s what I was paying for — for me personally, so is communication with me during the process. The EMSI team’s feedback and belief in me has built my confidence, which has allowed me to take up more opportunities and see more doors open. For that I am forever thankful.
I LOVE EMSI and would recommend to anyone who is ready to move forward and get their name out there!

I feel like we’ve got one of the most important collaborations going of my entire life and I’m thrilled to have partners like you at EMSI.

Just a quick note to say “Thanks” for doing what you said you would do. With how quick everyone moves in 2013 and all the noise of twitter, pintrest, facebook, and how to promote your brand you have more than fulfilled your obligation to our firm.
I had been looking into an affordable way to do some PR for over two years and now that we have hired you, we have over a dozen articles on the web, on our homepage, and on our facebook page.
It amazes me that we were a secret and in a little over 4 months you have brought some national media into my office with some great PR results!
Philip Rousseaux, Financial Professional
“After weeks of intense investigation of several publicity companies, I chose EMSI to help me create and promote my book tour and I am so glad that I did. I love the fact that there is no monthly fee like so many other firms. EMSI got me booked on 17 national radio shows and over a dozen television shows in less than one month! And, I paid only for the media I got, so I lost nothing.
Now because of all of their amazing work at getting me out into the national media, I have my very own TV talk show in Atlanta and I am living my legacy bigger then I could ever imagine. I cannot thank Steve, Marsha and all of the EMSI team enough for all they have done to help my dream come true. I will continue to work with them as my publicist for the rest of my career. They get the job done and more. Thank you EMSI.”

“EMSI effectively outlines what individuals need to do in order to forge a successful path in self-promoting or marketing their product. In Marsha’s book, “Celebritize Yourself,” I learned immediately the product was not my novel, but rather something far greater. My novel was merely a stronger entrance. Steve and Marsha knew the most influential material in highlighting my message, then passing it on to someone like Ginny Grimsley, who then concentrated on which direction to flow with my promotion.
I must say EMSI taught me valuable tools to carry forth with this marketing of myself and my book. I learned tremendously from Ginny Grimsley and from EMSI in general, which was well worth each moment, during the year. I respect all the knowledge you passed on to me.
I certainly hope people find a way to incorporate EMSI and people like Ginny into their campaign.”

“Traditional PR firms can be very expensive, requiring substantial monthly retainers while simultaneously guaranteeing they’ll to do their best to get you media exposure. That sentence is usually followed up with a caveat of the nebulous nature of the 24/7 news cycle and how all PR firms are constrained by the whims of the media.
This doesn’t have to be the case. Fortunately, we work with perhaps one of the only PR firm that actual works on a pay-for-performance philosophy. Our PR firm, E.M.S.I., is led by Marsha and Steve Friedman and their remarkable staff of seasoned, creative and talented media experts. They work on a set budget that guarantees media placement. They just don’t toss you to the lions, either. Senior Campaign Manager Alex Hinojosa and Creative Director Penny Carnathan work diligently to design and align a media strategy that truly optimizes our return on investment. Alex is a brilliant media coach as well. He thoroughly prepared me for how best to communicate my message during radio interviews. Rich Ghazarian, our radio campaign manager, has booked us on many syndicated, terrestrial radio programs that have high ratings and are heard throughout the country. These aren’t internet podcasts, we’re talking broadcasts.
If you’ve been burned by agencies that promised the world and delivered little more than a monthly invoice I highly recommend the E.M.S.I. team! They’re the perfect fit for entrepreneurs looking to build their credibility, visibility, and reach for a very reasonable investment.”

“I have worked with EMSI on a few campaigns and I am very impressed with their attention to detail, tenacity and follow-through.”

“I have hired other so-called pr firms in the past that have promised me interviews and media coverage but did not do anything that they promised. EMSI has done exactly what they said they would do! They secured 30 radio interviews all over the country for me, as they promised they would, including some really big names like the G. Gordon Liddy show. The fact that EMSI got such a high percentage of syndicated shows gave me broader coverage and better results.
“I would definitely recommend EMSI to others who are interested in getting the exposure for their company or product.”

“It was wonderful working with the staff at EMSI Public Relations. They are very professional, friendly and easy to work with. They were able to book over 30 interviews for me with top stations. I even had stations calling me back and wanting to book second interviews with me for free. His team is well respected and spoken of highly in the industry. I recommend using EMSI for your media and promotional needs.”
High Energy Labs, Inc., Mark Webb, President & CEO
“The 1st article pushed the book to #1 on amazon.com in the home repair section and has keep it in the top 100 since. It also promoted several TV, radio and magazine interviews. Woman’s World has done a couple of articles. So I am now officially a “Bestseller.”
