Nickel Communications Public Relations

Clients in the News

We offer comprehensive public relations services tailored to your needs. Each of our campaigns is uniquely designed to drive greater awareness among key stakeholders, substantially expand sales, and increase market share. Our team members have worked in both the agency and corporate worlds - including of some of the nation’s industry frontrunners like McDonald’s, WD-40, and Baskin-Robbins. We’ve also created integrated communication plans for nationally renowned companies in education technology, healthcare, consumer goods and service firms such as Lexia Learning, Mimio, itslearning, Alvarado Hospital, Smartfood Popcorn, and DLAPiper.  Our firm creates successful national, regional and local public relations and branded campaigns using media relations/publicity efforts, newsletters, promotions, special events, media training, and social media programs to expand your market share.

As a small firm, Nickel Communications strives every day to understand our clients on more than a strictly business level; we take a personal approach to our work. That approach gives us deeper insight into your business needs, helps us spot hidden opportunities for you and often provides the human-interest element that enriches your organization's story. (Plus, when you're comfortable with us and we're comfortable with you, getting together for things like meetings and tradeshows is a lot more fun!)
