Most importantly, she truly understands and believes in the products she’s working with, and I am very happy to have her representing the Hidrate brand to uncountable media outlets (with whom she also has close relationships with). She did a phenomenal job getting us placements in top-tier national publications, including as SELF, FabFitFun, and even Inc. Magazine!

What started out for us as a 3 month engagement ended up turning into a long term partnership. Leila is fantastic, and I’d definitely recommend to any startups looking for quality PR!”

The Ticket Kitchen

Pumpkin-Spice-Hot-Chocolate-Sticks-4Pack-ticket_1_0_TC_PumpkinSpice_4Pack-001_2348x2348“When we first spoke with Leila we were only a month into our business. After our phone call with her and after chatting with a few of her clients, we knew for certain that Leila was right for our small business. She had built her entire firm around the needs of small businesses like us, to provide affordable but big-time PR coverage. We had a goal of being recognized for our signature product, and really hoped that recognition could start during our first holiday season. Now, during our first holiday season, after being featured on The Today Show, in Real Simple, Sunset, and Cooking Light, I think we can say that Leila helped us meet our goal, and make all our wildest dreams come true. We think it speaks volumes that even when at first we were not getting instant media attention (no one wanted to talk about hot chocolate in May, who knew?), Leila was fantastic. She was always available to us, she was happy to talk through new product ideas with us, talk through which marketing avenues were worth our time, and was a cheerleader for us, which is something you really appreciate when you are struggling to begin a business. And most of all, we always knew she was working tirelessly for us and was very focused and effective and deliberate in the way she represented us to the media. We feel very fortunate to have found her.”

Lord Nut Levington

lord-nut-levington-xl“As a small start-up it is always tough to decide where to prioritize spending. We thought long and hard before we committed to working with Leila, but can say without hesitation that it has been a great decision. Leila has worked tirelessly to spread the word about our brand and tasty products. It has changed my opinion on what PR can actually do for a company. I no longer think of it as an exercise in embellishing one’s ego, but rather as a very effective marketing tool that drives incremental sales. A lot of this however comes from the passion and enthusiasm that Leila brings to the table. I do not think of her as an outside consultant, but rather as one of our team.”

Indulge Caramels

indulge_caramels“Leila has been great to work with, and I am really happy with everything she has done so far. As a small business owner, it can be difficult for me to balance everything and make sure I’ve met all deadlines, etc. She keeps me on track with what we should be focusing on, and manages to hold me accountable without being too forceful. In terms of pay-off, just three months in we had placement in a major magazine, and the orders were pouring in. And we keep getting more placements; it’s wonderful! Her ‘little black book’ is worth its weight in gold and has secured Indulge placements in O, the Oprah Magazine’s coveted O List, Good Housekeeping, Cooking Light, among others. Leila has really made all of my hard work (starting the company) pay off. She delivers, it’s that simple.”

Little Oven

“As a small business, finding the right PR person with a wide network but personal touch was crucial, and Leila with her boutique approach and little black book worked wonders! Within the first several weeks of working with her, Leila was able to get us a feature in Daily Candy, which led to a major boost in sales. This was followed by a feature in the Holiday Gift Guide for Martha Stewart Living, which truly put us on the map.”

Drink Skinny, LLC

final_logodrinkskinny“When we first discussed the possibility of working with LJB Public Relations, we didn’t think we could justify the expense of hiring a publicist at such an early stage of our business, but Leila shared with us her philosophy about making PR affordable to small business owners. It is her belief that large, multinational companies shouldn’t be the only ones entitled to publicity. True to her word, Leila tailored a marketing campaign to fit our company’s needs and our budget!

“Working with LJB turned out to be one of the best decisions we could’ve made for growth. Within just a couple of weeks of signing on with Leila, she secured an editorial placement for Drink Skinny Margarita Mix in the coveted DailyCandy Weekend Guide, as well as placements and interviews in several local publications. These spots not only increased our online sales, but resulted in creating a buzz around our products locally, which led to an increase in the number of retailers that wanted to carry them.

“Leila has amazing contacts, and knows her business. More importantly, she is conscientious and responsive—we never have any doubt that she is working hard for us, as she always makes herself available whenever we have questions or concerns. It has been a pleasure to work with Leila at LJB Public Relations, and we look forward to continuing our relationship with her.”

Kir Devries LLC

kir-logo“Editorial placement is a key element in our site traffic and sales year round. In preparation for the busy holiday shopping season, we set out to increase this revenue stream by hiring a PR representative to secure holiday placements. We interviewed several PR reps, looking for someone willing to give personal and dedicated attention to our brand who also had established contacts with the mainstream publications we hoped to be featured in. I was immediately inspired by Leila after speaking with her personally. Leila hit the ground running, bringing us revenue generating placements within weeks. Her enthusiasm and creative ideas and tenacity have more than lived up to my expectations from our engagement with Leila as our PR representative. We have enjoyed placement in more than a half dozen major publications resulting in remarkable sales and conversions as well as significant customer engagement and additional unsolicited press and online coverage.

In short I cannot say enough about Leila, her impressive dedication to her clients and ability to deliver what everyone wants from a PR rep which is enthusiastic coverage and lots of it! We will continue to be a client of Leila’s and very highly recommend her services to anyone considering a PR representative.”

Hurraw! Balms

429516723“What can we say? Leila is extraordinary at what she does and she has been instrumental in taking Hurraw! Balm to the next level of success.

We recently launched our brand, Hurraw! We are a small company just too busy to do the Public Relations work that was critically needed for new products coming to the market…and then we met Leila Belcher!

Our goal as a small company was not just to increase sales but more importantly, to be a recognized and respected brand. One that can be seen as a unique supplier of high quality, premium products with longevity in the marketplace. Not only has Leila helped us achieve this, but our sales have increased drastically as well. With Leila’s non-stop enthusiasm and positivity we have become a recognized and in-demand brand in our market in just six short months. Leila has worked tirelessly to get us the media placements we need to solidify Hurraw! as a recognizable and respectable product, brand and business.

Something we really admired about Leila in deciding to work with her is the brands she chooses to work with. Leila works with high quality brands she respects and that means a lot to us. It seems many public relations representatives don’t really care about who they work with or how they work with them but Leila is different. She cares about you; the person behind the brand. She believes in her clients and their businesses 100% and tailors campaigns to make them shine.

It goes without saying that Leila is more than just a great Public Relations representative! She has become a good friend as well. We can ask her anything and she consistently offers smart advice and ingenious opinions on what our brand has to do to be hip, current and successful. She is tremendously intuitive in her field of work, knows the markets and media inside and out and effortlessly makes top print and online media placements for us.

We can’t thank Leila enough for all of her hard work, and we know we can count on her in the years ahead with all of Hurraw! Balm’s Public Relations needs.”

Mad Hectic Foods

VOMe7OcU“When Leila approached our company about representation, I was curious, but felt sure our young company was not in a position to work with any public relations firm. Just two years old, Mad Hectic Foods is a small business with limited funds and I thought it would be years before we would be able to work with someone for media placement.

During my first phone conversation with Leila, she shared her philosophy that large businesses should not be the only ones with access to top-notch public relations representation. I could sense her sincerity and determination and I decided to work with her.

Within just a few days, we had requests for samples from many very impressive media outlets! It wasn’t long before we had placement in several regional newspapers and were featured in The Nibble, Hungry Girl and the Daily Candy. We are now waiting for the release of our first placement in a national magazine, scheduled in a few weeks.

To say we have benefited from working with LJB Public Relations is an understatement. Our business started a new direction when we made the decision to work with Leila, and the direction is rapid growth!

Leila’s sincerity, encouragement and awesome contacts are a wonderful combination and every step has been easy and a pleasure.

The results of working with LJB Public Relations have exceeded our expectations in such a short amount of time. As Leila says, “This is only the beginning!” We look forward to a long relationship with Leila and LJB Public Relations. If you are considering working with a public relations firm, you NEED to have a conversation with Leila.”

Coco-Zen

“As a small, independent business owner on a limited budget, I have pretty much done everything on my own. When I finally decided to take a leap of faith and hire someone to help me out with PR, I am thankful to have found Leila Belcher of LJB Public Relations.”
cocozen

“I have only worked with her for a few months now, and already she has gotten my company Coco-Zen placement in several prominent magazines, industry periodicals and online publications… something I could never have done on my own. Truly a godsend, Leila not only works hard, but she truly understands the needs and concerns of the small business owner. Her fees are more than reasonable, and she is extremely personable and easy to talk to – she never makes you feel small, as some PR firms can do.”

“With her industry connections, Leila has given Coco-Zen the amazing exposure it has needed to grow out of its infancy, and I highly recommend her to any new or small business owner that is hesitant to jump into the PR pool.”

Honeycat Cosmetics

honeycat-cosmetics-delicious-bath-products-spa-for-newlywed-life-save-win-giveaway.full“Ok, friends, and neighbors, have I got a PR firm for you! I initially met Leila Belcher, owner LJBPR a few years back when she was working for another firm, she was instrumental in helping me to get my company Honeycat Cosmetics on the PR map. After, I discontinued my services with that firm, I lost contact with her, and was heartbroken. I mean, I’ve had my share of experiences with so called PR folks, and Leila is by far the best! Honesty, and integrity in one PR firm? I’m not kidding. Imagine how excited I was to find that she had ventured out on her own.”

“Check this out, since getting in touch with her, Honeycat Cosmetics has appeared in several major magazines. Leila will work tirelessly for you.”

“She is not standoffish, or aloof. You can actually call her and talk to her, and she won’t charge you a kidney, your soul, or your first born for representation. Call her you won’t be sorry.”

Afterglow Cosmetics

afterglow.1“There is no match for the reputation and bottom-line boost of well placed media mentions. Working with LJB Public Relations is well worth the investment. The ROI we have enjoyed though LJB PR’s efforts has surpassed our expectations.”

Afterglow Cosmetics offers a full line of prestige organic makeup. Our products’ difference is in its 100% natural organic formulation and high quality, pharmaceutical-grade ingredients. We needed a PR firm to effectively communicate the message of the quality and purity of our products to the media. LJB PR was able to accurately and effectively communicate the unique features and focus of our brand to the right people.”

“I highly recommend LJB PR to any company looking for a results oriented, top-notch, media savvy PR firm. The media placements and response LJB Public Relations has garnered for Afterglow Cosmetics have, without a doubt, positively affected my bottom line and overall branding. LJB PR offers a personalized and responsive public relations experience you are unlikely to find anywhere else. LJB PR is a valued member of my team and I cannot recommend this firm highly enough.”

Milkdot

PicMonkey-Collage41“Hiring a PR firm is well worth the investment even if you’re a start-up company and LJB Public Relations understands the needs of small businesses. With LJB’s flexibility and commitment, small businesses can feel comfortable about their investment which can only have positive benefits.”

“As the founder and designer for Milkdot, and as a parent, my responsibilities were overwhelming and I knew that trying to get press on my own would not get the same results as working with a PR firm. Getting your brand and product as much exposure as possible in the beginning is crucial.”

“My experience with working with LJB Public Relations got my product, a modern children’s lunch tote, in Daily Candy Kids which is where every new company that has a product for children hopes to be featured. Not to mention, the article also brought over 2,000 visits to my site in a single day!”

“It is so important to work with a PR firm that not only has the right contacts but also really believes in your product and vision and LJB PR made me feel that I could completely trust them to do the best job possible.”

“I have enjoyed working with Leila and look forward to working with her again.”
