Category Experience






In the beginning, there were a handful of media outlets, a few events and a growing interest in reaching the 7 million Hispanics in the U.S.

By the early 90's, we had become Hispanic market PR pioneers. Wielders of the "Sword and Shield" approach. We created our own tools when the industry didn't offer them and along the way, helped the discipline evolve from a "good will" gesture into one of the most important tools we now have for changing consumer behavior.

Along the way, our unique expertise enabled us to extend our public relations strategies into other segments of the population. Today, minority consumers have become the majority in the top 20 U.S. markets, and our clients are tapping into us to reach the total market, made up of these diverse segments. From Fortune 1000's to local non-profits, San Jose Public Relations has been called upon to build brands, put out fires and shape the marketplace in memorable ways because of its stellar reputation.






To create meaningful, measurable and culturally relevant connections between brands and their target publics.






Effective public relations is about more than just influence and persuasion. It’s about developing meaningful relationships between brands and the matrix of stakeholders who shape their profitability in the marketplace.

Our programs enlighten, educate, empower, elevate and enrich the audiences we target, converting them into willing and able brand ambassadors.
