  • Sylvia Cintron – VP Comm./MK. Intl Council

    Ria is an extraordinary professional who possesses great attention to detail. She understands how to work in a high pressure, deadline-oriented environment and executes flawlessly in a timely matter. Ria's highly positive spirit created great synergy in all aspects of the publication. It was a pleasure working with her as she brings dedication and vision to each project she gets involved with.
  • Kent Whitaker – Author, Culinary Writer

    Ria contacted me to provide a series of informational articles with a culinary theme for a larger project she was working on. Ria was one of the nicest, respectful, informative and straightforward people that I've worked with. At the same time her leadership, creativity, focus and insight on the project was refreshing and fun.
  • Victoria Neale – Victorious Solutions

    My company has worked with RPR on many projects. I am continually impressed by their quick turnaround, thorough communication, and willingness to help. Their vast media contact network and expertise makes marketing and PR easy. I look forward to working with RPR in the future with all my PR needs.
  • Jo Anne Casey – CEO, NOLA Tee

    RPR quoted a targeted PR & Marketing plan for immediate results. The plan was implemented and we are already seeing positive results within a week. They are professional and great to work with!
  • CEO of Printamentals.com

    Being a small start-up company, RPR treated us as if we were a huge corporation. They were very knowledgeable and attentive. Any time we needed anything Ria was available unlike other so called professionals who take a day or more to get back to you. Also the press release RPR wrote for us was FANTASTIC - and the PR firm also gave us tips on how to keep us going. To sum it up - this is a great PR & Marketing firm. We highly recommend.
  • Susanna Potter – CEO and Founder, DaintyFootings.com

    I struck gold when I hired RPR Public Relations to launch my new consumer product. From day one they have gone above and beyond what was asked of them. In a short time, RPR has successfully launched my product faster than I ever could have imagined. As a project manager, Ria has great communication skills, is extremely creative and fun to work with. I would not consider using any other PR agency except RPR Public Relations for my future PR & Marketing projects.
  • Nicholas Yevglevski, Host.net

    I had a very successful working experience with RPR for over 5 years. In my professional opinion, Ria and her team comprise one of the best tech PR agencies in the industry. The level of creativity that they apply individually for each individual client is so impressive that as a result her client's businesses have grown tremendously. I would strongly recommend RPR Public Relations as a single source for all of your tech or software PR needs.
  • Peter Mann – Founder and CEO, Oransi.com

    I have worked with Ria and her team for the past several years and she has done a great job in supporting our company’s PR needs. Her insights and recommendations have been very valuable in growing our brand as well as in expanding our social media presence. I really appreciate her honest and timely feedback and look forward to continuing to work with RPR as our company grows.

  • Christmas Miller -book author

    I highly recommend RPR for any work you need in PR & Marketing. Not only were theyverythorough (which is hard to find with any business and company nowadays) –they were up-to-speed on their knowledge of the industry. This is what you NEED in this line of work.
  • Marcus Tettmar – CEO, MJTNET.com

    Very responsive - worked fast and delivered polished, professional results. Very knowledgeable and provided a great deal of advice over and above what was asked for. Will work with RPR again.
  • Rory Groves – CEO and Founder SWIFT Weather.com

    Since I began working with RPR, I have had incredible results. My products have been featured in 5 newsstand magazines in the past few months, and dozens of online sites. In one case, I received a 3-page review and special mention on the magazine's front cover. None of this would have been possible without RPR - and Ria's - help and expertise. My sales are up considerably and RPR's services are very affordable. Additionally, Ria has been excellent in providing advice in an on-going basis. She is very quick to reply to my marketing questions and I can always trust her answers. I trust her highly, intend to continue working with her, and would recommend her team to anyone who needs PR or Marketing help.
  • Blair Cohen – CEO, AuthenticID.co

    Great results and super-fast turnaround.Ria and her team are highly recommended experts in their field.
  • Ryan Rogers – CEO, Wapifi

    I hope I don't have a competitor that hires this PR firm. RPR utilized multiple techniques to get an in-depth understanding of my technology business, products and services and business goals. There was nothing cookie cutter about their approach. The PR services we received reflected every bit of effort RPR put into understanding our goals. Once again RPR came through strong.
  • Michelle Pearl – CEO, HolograFit.com

    The best, the best, the BEST! I had an immediate need for public relations help to launch my new product. RPR was on it instantly. Within DAYS I had a professional press release distributed, a newspaper and a magazine print an article on our product, an interview with the editor of the top trade magazine for my industry, and several additional picture and story requests from top trade magazines, as well. I absolutely could not have asked for better service.
  • Jane Goodrich – JaneGoodrich.com

    I love working with Ria and her team. She provides great insight and knowledge in an area that I am not that familiar with. She likes to think of short term results (sales!) as well as long term goals - which I definitely appreciate. I have loved the ideas that she brings to us as well as the smooth implementation of it. I would definitely recommend her and RPR Public Relations to anyone looking for a great PR firm!
  • Melody Davidson – Designer at Interiors by Melody

    My firm hired RPR to help us promote a new product that had virtually no awareness in the marketplace. Within a couple months’ time, Ria and her team had gotten articles written in publications across the country. These articles were picked up by other newspapers and magazines as well as blogs and have greatly increased our visibility. Ria is a real “champion” for small business and really gives her clients more than their money's worth. I strongly recommend RPR Public Relations for anyone looking for a publicist.
  • Kristina Sieckowski, VP – Aircraft Management Group, Inc.

    We have worked with RPR Public Relations on several occasions and the service provided to Aircraft Management Group, Inc. by this PR firm far exceeded our high expectations. They are creative and knowledgeable about PR and marketing in today's online environment and the impact of SEO. They also have great industry contacts. Aircraft Management Group, Inc. continues to utilize RPR for our public relations work and we look forward to a long successful partnership together.
  • Christian Sinatra – CEO – DrapeStyle.com

    Ria is a results driven professional and a pleasure to work with. She has a very high sense of urgency (which we love) and really digs up incredible opportunities for us. Could not recommend Ria and her team more highly.
  • Abby Armijo – Strategic Marketing Manager, BobaFamily.com

    RPR has consistently gone out of their way to help Boba Family succeed and I cannot express how wonderful they have been since the day we began working together. Not only has RPR gone above and beyond our expectations, but they made it a point to help guide us in the right direction, provide unique opportunities and ideas, and always made us feel like their top priority. No matter what time of day (or night!) I always felt that Ria was there to help with anything at all, and I would recommend her and RPR Public Relations to absolutely anyone looking for a professional and exceptional public relations firm.
  • Alex Fetanat, President, GemFind.com

    As the CEO of GemFind, I would highly recommend Ria Romano and her team at RPR Public Relations, Inc. – no other PR Agency comes close. They have been our company’s PR Agency for several years.
  • Scott Taylor, Founder – SOLOSHOT.com

    I have used Ria and her team for PR several times. She is always willing to talk on the phone, work back and forth with you, is honest and straight forward with exactly what she will do, and does her best to keep the bill at a minimum. Other firm's I've investigated talk about their "proprietary methods" which I interpret as they are billing extra for nothing special and your point of contact will be a lower level associate, whereas Ria's cell stored in my phone and she takes my calls even on nights and weekends.


as a team

RPR Public Relations, Inc. is a boutique Public Relations and Marketing firm. Most of our staff have been with us for more than 10 years and have one thing in common – they were carefully chosen and are the absolute best at what they do. Together we have worked for all types of clients and on every type of PR and marketing project imaginable. You will not find legions of PR interns or junior account executives here. We believe in hiring the best people – highly trained, seasoned professionals – and keeping them. This mirrors our philosophy we have with our clients – we’re long-term relationship people.

As a result, our PR and Marketing firm is highly effective and nimble. We provide big agency results without the big agency price tag. Best of all, we think you’ll like our responsive, first-class customer service we provide to each and every client – whether you’re a solo entrepreneur, start up, small-to-medium sized business or an Enterprise-level corporation. Our clients are located throughout the U.S. – and from around the world – different time zones don’t scare us. Want to reach us after hours or on the weekend? No problem. We strive for 24/7/365 service – and there aren’t many PR and Marketing firms who can say that.

Before founding RPR, she held the position of Director of Public Relations for the largest privately held PR firm in the Southeast. She holds a BA/MA from Boston University and an MBA in Strategy/International Business from the University of Miami.
