Bottom Line Communications

    Do people even know your business exists?  Sure, you have some loyal customers, but times are changing.  Buyers have more choices than ever before locally, nationally and globally.  

    The new reality is that long-term relationships can evaporate in a computer keystroke.

    The old saying “When you stop getting better you stop being good” is as true today as it ever was.  If you aren’t getting your company’s name and products in front of potential customers you will soon be left in the dust.  Now is the time to take action!

    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!  

    Remember, “When you stop getting better, you stop being good.”
