In case you didn’t see our massive explosion of photos on Instagram, Integrate won PRSA Mid-Size Agency of the Year! We are so honored and truly grateful to have received such an award and we want to thank our wonderful clients and employees for making this happen!
Receiving this award means so much to us. Time sure does fly when you’re having fun: doesn’t it seem like just yesterday when our president and founder, Allie, started Integrate in Houston? What an amazing FIVE years of ups and downs it has been! Looking back now and seeing how much we’ve grown and accomplished in such a small amount of time, we couldn’t feel more blessed and excited for what’s in store for us! Stay tuned for some exciting news in the coming weeks as we approach this milestone anniversary.
With this exciting news, we thought it would be appropriate to tell y’all a little more of what Integrate is about!
Integrate Public Relations started as a dream of a young account executive living in Manhattan and turned into a reality in 2009 when everything fell into place; she was in the right place at the right time and on to something with this whole “social media thing” that was just emerging. Within a few months of what started as public relations and social media freelance consulting gigs around the country, Allie was able to transition them into retainers and into what was becoming a booming agency in Houston. Starting with one client based in Los Angeles (We will be eternally grateful to our first client, Handstand Kids Cookbook Company and Yvette for taking a chance on us!), Integrate has come a long way with now nearly 30 local and national clients in a handful of growing industries.
Integrate works with each client to create a dynamic online and offline presence. We take a proactive approach to communicate our clients’ messages by connecting with influencers appropriate to their individual needs and share the brand’s message accordingly. Through this method, Integrate produces measurable results and deliver our clients with business growth they can see.
We strive to stand out by integrating online communication tactics with traditional public relations tools. We start with the proper analytics to monitor each of our clients’ audiences so we can reach their targets, where it matters.
Integrate is strategically, not industry, specific. Allie’s career started in New York City in the real estate industry; it was a roller coaster – a blast when real estate was booming but a shocking dose of reality during the crash. Seeing how this affected the agency she was working at, as well as the morale of the staff, Integrate has always made sure to develop specialties in a variety of different industries. We currently are focused in the restaurant/hospitality industry as well as real estate, retail and nonprofit.
Our emphasis on “Integrate”
Integrate isn’t just the company name, it’s also meaningful to how the agency works as a whole. We strive to make sure clients feel “integrated” with their account team and involved in every part of the process. This means constantly providing information to our clients so they are apart of every process and understand where their investment is going.
Of course this is just an overview of who we are, so for more information go ahead and check us out on our website!
