Marilyn Demartini's PR Power, journalism, media relations, public relations, social media, Fort Lauderdale

PR Power was created to suit the caliber of my clients—powerful people, sports, and action-packed products.

I have been selling since I was a kid–lemonade, school raffle tickets, Junior Achievement projects, or men’s and women’s sportswear while working my way through college–whatever the job, I have always enjoyed the challenge of meeting my sales goals and my customers’ needs. Public relations and promotions have been my professional realm–selling the sizzle, priming the pump for the salesmen, positioning the pitch, setting the tone for the sell.

Looking at a product or service, I can’t help thinking how it could best be positioned or in front of what audience. How to best reach that audience? How to best feature the business? How to tell the story.

I approach my business and yours, with an enthusiasm for communicating the story–and the behind-the-scenes story—that is usually the intriguing part. Whatever your communication needs for collateral, sales, website or press materials–you name it, I’ll write it — and if you want, I’ll help you to market it!

Some of my favorite earlier journalistic work is included here on the Journalism & Writing page and I will continue to add new articles.

The Public Relations business has changed drastically over the years with social media transforming the way and the speed in which we communicate. This focus on immediacy and personalization has changed how we write and revolutionized how we market and targeting to whom—“Live” as in real time, has become how we “Live” as communities, relating to each other across all borders—but while video becomes a dominant way to communicate, we still rely on the spoken or written word.
