Welcome to BML Public Relations—congratulations! If you are on our website, you are searching for a PR agency partner that understands the fundamentals of on-message, earned media coverage that appears in newspapers, magazines and on TV sets, globally, nationally and regionally. Maybe you’ve been wowed by something we’ve done lately? A bikini made entirely of pizza? One-hundred percent edible wine glasses made of cheese? Or making an entire U.S. town royalty? Our fun creative is fueled by our anything-is-possible, never-satisfied approach to getting the quality media coverage that our clients deserve. From a crazy notion on our whiteboard to headline news, we take on PR the old-fashioned way — smile and dial (that’s right we use the telephone, not just email), we understand how reporters and producers work.

A full-service award-winning PR agency, we provide our clients with all the usual stuff — creative concepts, strategy, media relations, crisis, PR stunts, newsjacking, branding events, cause marketing, social and influencer programs and more—we just do it better and have more fun doing it. Our super-fun roster of brands includes national and regional franchised concepts, consumer-packaged goods, retail destinations, experiential entertainment, travel and tourism, restaurant and hospitality and much more.

We love what we do.

Our leadership team comes from the “big glam agency” life. Combined, we have represented some of the most recognized brands. From the house of the world’s most famous mouse to a motorcycle named “Harley,” a notorious blimp to the innovator of the pan pizza and the king of beers; cafes that rock and soup cans worthy of Warhol, our team offers big agency experience with the “go the extra mile” style you can only get at a small agency. Fueled by candy and Diet Coke, our staff is one to one junior to senior, but there’s no job too big or too small for any BMLPR team player. At the end of the day we are just a bunch of PR nerds who still get a thrill about a great hit. And this is a BIG ONE—we tell the truth. We provide honest client counsel – always – like it or not.

We. Get. Earned. Media.

Listen, we get it. Who isn’t Instagramming, Snapchatting, Facebooking, or Tweeting —and maybe doing it all at once. But we believe that earned media is still the bread and butter of quality PR results and this is where our never-satisfied approach truly comes into play. We live by the motto “we are only as good as our last big hit.” Earned media coverage is where news is reported, social media is where everyone talks about it. We don’t load up our plans with paid tactics, we do not use industry metrics that inflate our results and we don’t rely on blogs and influencers to drive up our numbers.

We’re battle tested.

While we call BMLPR our home, our team of PR pros have worked on both sides of the phone. From the intense TV newsrooms in the New York market, to local beat reporting, we pitch and have been pitched. We write the reader as a litmus test and bounce ideas off our staffers and our rolodex of friendly producers and editors to gut check story angles. The mix of experience and connections help us move from wanting a story to stick, to knowing it will.

We’re fun.

Our office is bright, energetic and designed to boost creativity and fun. We are a team loaded with big personalities and Nerf guns. Our fridge features great media placements, memorable emails and alphabet magnets. We eat pizza every Friday (courtesy of our CEO), wear ugly sweaters at Christmas, have outings at the beach and the bowling alley and have an ongoing, agency-wide group chat that is often activated late at night and on the weekends (and we are not even annoyed by it). We are a likeable group that genuinely likes each other and our clients.
