Why FMG

So why should you work with us? Here are some reasons, and by the way, they all are true:

Harvey Farr is involved in all client campaigns and often personally does all the work
Harvey is the founder of Farr Marketing Group (FMG). Before launching FMG he was Senior VP at Ruder Finn, one of the nation’s largest and most respected marketing and PR firms. Harvey has worked his entire life in Los Angeles and has represented dozens upon dozens of corporations and organizations in Los Angeles, California, the U.S., Asia and Europe.

FMG is small and hands on
We don’t bait and switch. When you hire us, you get Harvey and if more talent is needed we add senior executives to your account team.. Our clients interact with only highly professional and experienced marketing and PR personnel.

Our costs are well below the industry average
Because we are a boutique agency,we are able to offer large agency quality work for a fraction of the cost. You get the experience, talents and knowledge of seasoned professionals but without having to pay for all the overhead costs that don’t directly benefit you.

We are responsive and results-oriented
We don’t believe in taking on a client and three months later have only one meeting, two client lunches and five emails to show for our work. We know we only have a few months to prove ourselves so we work fast, but smart. This is selfish on our part because we want to keep clients for the long-term and the way to keep clients is to show results. And, when we keep clients long-term, we can accomplish bigger and better things.

We know our stuff
Last, we know what we are doing. There is no on-the-job training here. Our collective experience gives clients the experience, creativity, accountability and responsiveness that they want and deserve.

    Nonprofit public relations and marketing

    Is it possible to attract media coverage for a nonprofit fundraiser event? I ask the question because every nonprofit holds fundraisers, whether in-person or online, and everybody wants media coverage.

    When is a crisis a crisis?

    Crisis public relations firms are often retained to do two things. Either keep their client out of the news, or help their client respond to negative allegations. The key to an effective crisis PR strategy is timing. If an organization believes there is a threat to their reputation, they want to be ready. We’ve all […]
