Bottom Line Communications

    Communicating effectively with your customers, potential customers, employees and the public might be more important today than ever before.  

    The reality is that it doesn’t take much in the “Gotcha!” world of social media to undo years of hard work developing a positive brand image.  As Mark Twain famously noted, “A lie can travel half-way around the world while the truth is putting on its shoes.”

    At Bottom Line Communications we have worked for more than 25 years with clients of all sizes to make sure they are able to tell their story to the public effectively.  Whether via our award-winning media training program or PR and advertising programs, we know how to get YOUR story communicated.

    We work daily with the local and national media to help generate positive publicity and exposure for our clients. Doing a media interview? We have trained more than 500 executives in helping them get their messages out effectively while being prepared to handle tough questions. 

    Need a news release written and distributed quickly? We can do it and get you positive exposure. 

    Founded in 1996 by former Sprint spokesman and college professor John Landsberg, Bottom Line Communications has worked with more than 100 clients to deliver results that positively impact their bottom line. He is a frequent speaker to groups about media relations, PR, crisis communications and marketing.

    Landsberg’s book “Confessions of a Corporate Sycophant” humorously chronicles his PR career and demonstrates some of the strange situations he has dealt with over the years. He pretty much has done it all and seen it all.

    Read the stories on this site. They will give you a good indication of the relationships and knowledge we have of the news media and how we can develop a plan of action for your business.  

    Then email  jlandsberg@bottomlinecom.com for more details about how we can assist your efforts. The time to start communicating with your publics is NOW!
