Our approach.

Making news and making our clients indispensable to the news

We believe the secret to a successful PR campaign lies in making the news. We don't wait around for our clients to have news to share, we create our own because you need a constant stream of media attention in order to break through and attract more customers. 

We combine our data-division with our award-winning team of copywriters, content creators, and PR specialists to then curate breaking news around the world and pitch engaging headlines to journalists. We then use these initial pitches to A/B test and provide new batches of even more effective messaging to more niche news sources. The result is a flood of content being authentically delivered and shared that positions the public image of your brand the way you want to be seen.

How we work.

Putting You and Your Business in the Limelight

Our work begins with an alignment of goals and audience followed by deep dive into the Kansas City consumers we believe we should target. Next, we ideate a series of pitch angles focusing on your brand's unique benefits and curating data that we can use to create newsworthy angles only your brand can fill. 

Then start pitching news stories to potential journalists using our proven communication blueprints and established local and global news relationships to get you more visibility. Finally, we continue our data-tracking to continuously refine both our curating parameters and our pitching techniques, allowing us to respond to more breaking news even faster.

What makes us different?

Our heart and soul is in Kansas City

Our Kansas City clients...we love 'em all

Kansas City is one of the most important cities in the world. Kansas City is more than just great BBQ and sports. The City of Fountains is one of the leading manufacturing, healthcare, and transportation epicenters in America. It takes a lot to stand out from the herd here but that’s where TOP helps. Our custom, high-return Public Relations campaigns use all of the top strategies to make sure you’re seen. As the best Kansas City PR consultant, we take pride in helping our hometown neighbors succeed. We make sure you achieve and exceed your revenue goals and obtain sustainable growth over time.

Much like the city, we started small and hopeful and grew into the mighty machine we are now. Sure, we’ve had our share of pivots and rebrands but we are proud to work with everyone from Del Monte Foods to Valley Fine Foods; Budweiser to Bowflex; and everything between.
