I have loved my engagement with Straight Up PR, they became an extension of my team (which is just me so I loved having some extra hands on deck!) & were super easy to work with. I really valued their honest feedback on my ideas, & the knowledge they shared with me from years of experience. We achieved some great results in such a short space of time!
