Public Relations

Van Eperen is a fully integrated PR and marketing communication consulting firm with offices in the Washington, DC metro and Baltimore.

Integrated PR Firm with Proven Results

We create customized plans to deliver measurable results to our clients. Our targeted services heighten awareness of our private and public sector clients, helping them meet their most important goals. 

This is the era of audience-driven media. We have shorter attention spans with a multitude of channels fueling more real-time conversations. Modern media consumption requires an integrated public relations approach. Our team combines proven media tactics with innovative technologies to reach audiences in the right place, with the right message. We believe that even though times change, and channels evolve, great stories are timeless. Tell your story. Build your brand. Drive results.

Media Relations Where Traditional Meets Social

Our PR team is at the intersection of traditional and social media – leveraging relationships with the right reporters through the right channels in DC, Maryland, Virginia and nationwide. From telling remarkable stories to responding to a crisis, those relations ensure our client’s message is at the forefront of media coverage. 

Through targeted media outreach, we’ve secured placements on countless local and regional television shows, radio stations, and clients are regularly quoted in local, regional and national publications.

It All Begins With The Right PR Strategy

Telling The Right Stories to the Right People at the Right Time

We don’t just sell press releases. We build strategic plans that employ the PESO model to ensure your message is shared through paid, earned, shared and owned media that all build awareness to reach your goals. We have full-service capabilities that use innovative technologies to integrate communications strategies that inspire action and drive results.

We tell the real story about our clients using research, collaborative efforts, and an aggressive combination of traditional and social media to move the needle.
