These last couple months at Integrate have been an absolute whirlwind. We couldn’t have asked to be in a better situation at this point. We are finally all settled into our new office located in Upper Kirby and we are busier than ever. With all these new changes, we wanted to share with y’all a little of what’s been going on at IPR these last couple months and some of our exciting adventures and accomplishments, including our fabulous new employees and clients!
Starting with our newest addition to the Integrate team is the ever so wonderful social media extraordinaire, Julianne Agno. Julianne is our newest Social Media Account Executive and she currently works on M. PENNER, Mapping Your Future and Money Management International, and Integrate’s social media efforts. Trust us, you will want to follow this one on all social media sites ASAP. She is without a doubt a social media pro. Go ahead and follow her on Twitter, Instagram and Facebook to stay up to date with her adventures!
In case you haven’t already seen the masterful works of Sonny Patten and Julia Parsons in their previous posts on our blog, they are our second most recent IPR hires and we couldn’t be more thrilled to have them.
Julia Parsons was our Public Relations and Social Media Intern for two semesters before being promoted to Junior Public Relations Account Executive. She currently works on public relations efforts on accounts shared with Sonny. To learn more about our brilliant PR mastermind, go ahead and follow Julia on her Twitter, Instagram, and Facebook!
Last but certainly not least, Sonny Patten is currently our Senior Social Media Account Executive and manages Worth It, Lonestar Cab and Insgroup. Sonny has a diverse background in both PR and Social Media and came to us from Edelman, one of the largest PR firms. For more info about Sonny, be sure to follow him on his Twitter, Instagram, and Facebook!
As for new interns, we are so happy to have Caroline Dodd, Emily Bouse, and Caitlyn Kaczmarek!
We are beyond thrilled to have these PR/Social media experts on our team, and we can’t wait to share more about them!
As for new business, we are excited to share with y’all a little bit about our new clients: Worth It, Lonestar Cabs, Insgroup, Alamo Drafthouse Cinema, Mapping Your Future, and Susan G. Komen Houston.
Worth It is a web and mobile app that helps shoppers find what they are looking for at a better price. They showcase everything, ranging from TV’s and cameras to strollers and handbags; brilliant, right? We thought so too. Look out for their new app, expected to launch later this week, so stay tuned!
Lonestar Cab is the second to largest cab service in Houston and we are handling both their PR and social media efforts. We’ve already made great progress, including helping stranded motorists found through Twitter conversations. For instance, Sonny Patten found this man in the area whose car broke down and was able to reach out to him and give him Lonestar Cab’s contact information. Small gestures like that are what set Lonestar Cab apart from other cab services in Houston. We are so proud of their progress and can’t wait to see what else is in store for them!
Insgroup is one of the top insurance agencies in the country, based right here in Houston and in Austin! We are currently helping with their PR and some of their community efforts, including finding local nonprofit partnerships and opportunities for them to lend a helping hand!
Mapping Your Future is a non-profit organization committed to reinventing student loan counseling by providing comprehensive resources for students, families, and schools. Recently merging with Money Management International, a financial counseling agency, we’re helping to create merged copy for the new website as well as marketing materials and announcing this merger through some targeted media outreach.
Susan G. Komen Houston is our new non-profit client who we began working with in March. We’re currently trying to garner media exposure for its Impact Awards Luncheon on June 17th. We’re doing PR and Social Media for the organization and are focusing on spreading the word about the organization and all it does for the community year round.
Last but not least, Alamo Draft House Cinema is one of our new clients who Laura Littlejohn helped carry out the Open the Tabs campaign and partnership. After strict legislation was passed that restricted the growth of the burgeoning national craft beer movement in Texas, Alamo Draft House Cinema was heavily impacted. To show their customers they care about this change, Alamo Draft House Cinema, with the help of Laura, decided to partner with Open the Tabs, a nonprofit organization advocating craft beer rights.
We are so ecstatic to see what is in store for all of new clients and employees! Be sure to follow us for more updates on our Facebook, Twitter and Instagram!
