Image Professors, Inc. is an innovative and creative communications consultancy comprised of marketing communications, public relations and journalism professionals located across the United States and Canada. The company was founded to deliver a cost-effective marketing communications option for entrepreneurial start-ups seeking to stimulate awareness in the minds of press and analyst communities. Since then, the Image Professors team has concentrated on creating, communicating and delivering innovative and results-oriented media campaigns for a diverse and global clientele.
Through a unique virtual consultancy business model, Image Professors consultants have the flexibility to participate as members of a company’s marketing communications team, or as extensions to an external public relations agency requiring additional hands-on bench strength. We have the relationships and connections necessary to handle all marketing communications projects from start to finish, yet we maintain a flexibility that cannot often be found in larger firms. Our seasoned and professional staff can immediately deliver credible experience, program management skill and the strategic and tactical know-how to accomplish desired goals. In addition, for companies not yet prepared to retain a full-service public relations agency and pay associated costs, Image Professors can outline and execute the initial steps necessary to build a credible and creative communications program that will result in immediate traction.
