You've got Wits!
Founded in October 2019, we are a small team with big experience across markets and industries. With us, you receive small-firm attention and large-firm quality of work.
Your PR goals are an extension of your business goals. We’ll help you meet both. Raise awareness about your cause, boost visibility for your brand, secure strategic partnerships –– all while building great relationships with those who matter to you.
We believe in a results-focused integrated approach. It means that all communication efforts – from social to interpersonal, from earned to paid – are streamlined to deliver the same message.
We do NOT believe in billable hours, poetic mission statements, fancy agency websites or elaborate proposals.
We are mobile and agile with a presence in Miami, Moscow, and Chicago.
