It’s no secret the AM:PM PR crew loves its neighborhood. While we typically talk up the local bars and eateries, there are other less calorically detrimental businesses that we think are equally neat.

It’s a well-known fact around the office that I’m a bit of a cat lady. When I say “a bit,” I suppose I mean a total, unabashed cat lady. My fellow AM:PM PR team members have to deal with the repercussions of this fact on a frequent basis. Sometimes it’s in the form of mundane tales […]
Have you ever wondered where you stand with regards to your – or perhaps your business’ – social media presence? Let’s just pretend you answered yes. If you ever do find yourself longing to find an answer to such a question, I have found a solution: Sprout Social. Sprout Social is a great new web-based […]
The AM:PM PR team recently held one of its weekly PR 3.0 meetings at a spot close to our offices called Madison’s Grill. We likely would have picked this location anyway, due to its proximity and ability to accommodate large groups.
