JLV COMMUNICATIONS WELCOMES YOU
Let's Succeed Together
I worked with JLV Communications on a product launch in a fairly new, highly competitive market. Jill created a public relations strategy that was extremely effective. From overall strategy, press release generation, talking points and media outreach, Jill created an excellent awareness campaign that generated proven results.
