PR Services, Testimonials

Marjorie Preston PR:

Marjorie Preston PR offers a range of writing and public relations services, including press releases, public service announcements, profile/bio writing, article writing, press kits, editing a whole range of copy, and the full range of modern media outreach (social media, phone, fax, email, e-newsletters, posting to websites) from her fully-equipped office.  Specializations include small businesses, non-profits and arts clients.

“You deal directly with me, the president of my tiny company, and I deal directly with the press — no subcontractors. At a big agency, one person initiates contact on the account, then a different person makes phone calls, while a third person sends emails.  Yet another person handles your database, and still another bills you.  I find this ridiculous. Why?  Because at Marjorie Preston PR, I handle it all.  I know where your press release went because I created a customized database for your project, I sent the release and I followed up on it.  Why does this make more sense?  Because when you email, call or text, I can tell you where you stand and what still needs to happen — right then and there.” — Marjorie Preston

Testimonial from Todd Pownell, owner of TAP Studios and Gallery M:

“Her contact with the press has resulted in features in Cleveland arts magazine Angle, online Cleveland arts newsletter Cool Cleveland, respected Northeast Ohio business magazine Inside Business and Northern Ohio arts and culture magazine Northern Ohio Live. The gallery’s opening nights receive consistent coverage in local entertainment papers.  The gallery was featured in the national magazine American Craft’s calendar section, and in the national magazine Lapidary Journal.  We received a feature in the Plain Dealer and in the “Buzz” section of Northern Ohio Live.  Marjorie goes the extra mile with customer service, from follow up with interested journalists to accurate and timely billing. If we get a “bite” from the press, she always lets me know what is going on so we can respond quickly. She creates and edits custom lists just for our business so that the people who receive press releases and PSAs from us look forward to them.”

Testimonial from Lenore Koppel, editor of the Index to Jewish Periodicals:

“Ms. Preston [works as] assistant editor on the Index, which references hundreds of Jewish cultural and religious periodicals each year.  She has been thorough, intuitive, punctual, and pleasant to work with in assisting me with line editing of the index entries and headers, and lookups of the materials referenced for … the IJP.”

Testimonial from Jarrod Zickefoose, Former Arts & Entertainment Editor of the Sun News:

“Ms. Preston’s writing was consistent and required little editing.  She was prompt in accepting assignments and beat deadlines in completing them.  Her theater criticism was frank, and she wrote fair assessments about the positive and negative elements of the productions she reviewed.”

Testimonial from Nancy Beckett, author of the successful show, “Writing With Nancy,” at the Live Bait Theater in Chicago:

“Marjorie is a stickler for details.  Which I’m not. I’m big picture and conceptual — sometimes I don’t know if I dreamed it or actually did it.  Detail people drive me a little crazy in real life, but in PR, that’s who you want gunning for you.  Beyond that, Marjorie has great ease of execution and is extremely competent.  I never doubted that things were covered and on deadline.  Never mind that I was in Chicago and she was in Cleveland — details!”
