Levinson Communications International has planned and coordinated effective public relations programs for a wide variety of business owners and professionals for nearly fifty years. We
research, write and distribute press releases and pitch letters about our clients to an extensive network of media contacts on a local and national level; create business, human interest and
technical story concepts and develop them into feature articles that are published in newspapers, consumer magazines and trade publications, both print and online; secure radio and television
interviews for our clients that result in beneficial media exposure; pursue and publicize public seminars; author newspaper and magazine articles and advice columns; develop, write and coordinate
newsletters. We provide product publicity for companies that manufacture and/or distribute products of all kinds. We also assist with event planning and corresponding PR.
People purchase magazines and newspapers to read the articles, not the ads.
Public Relations provides credibility, an essential element that advertising simply cannot deliver. In most cases, PR is more effective and less expensive than common advertising. When potential customers learn of your products and/or services by reading articles about them in newspapers and magazines, they are much more likely to become your customer or client.
A successful business owner doesn’t keep his business a secret. Promoting your business in the media will help it to grow and prosper.
Consumers, businesses and the trades are greatly influenced by the media. Positive publicity in our information-driven society has a significant impact on the buying public. Working with the media, through a publicist, is your most cost-effective link to the consumer. This is where Levinson Communications stands above the rest. With nearly five decades of experience in Public Relations, we know how to reach and influence the media.
The concept of Public Relations can be applied to any type of business or professional. Since our agency was founded in 1971, we have served (but are not limited to) medical doctors; dentists; veterinarians; residential and commercial architects; interior designers; home builders; residential remodelers; automobile dealerships; liquor distributors; salons and day spas; commercial products manufacturers; politicians and political organizations; restaurants; health care facilities; kitchen and bath designers; and retail stores.
In addition to being an experienced publicist, David Lewis is an established features writer. Because many newspaper and magazine publishers have reduced staff writers due to shrinking budgets, editors often rely on freelance writers to provide content. These days, your publicist must also serve as a writer. David Lewis frequently writes articles that have been published in the Daily Herald Newspapers; Pioneer Press Newspapers; Voyager Media Newspapers; Chicago News; Chicago Sun-Times Online; Triblocal; The Illinois State Veterinary Medical Association Journal; Oak Park Magazine; Illinois Cops Magazine; People & Places Community Newspapers; Kitchen & Bath Business Magazine; Healthy Aging Magazine and many others.
Fees are based on a monthly retainer or individual per-project basis.
