About Smith Publicity
Founded in 1997, Smith Publicity has evolved from a one-person operation run from a bedroom office to one of the nation’s leading publicity agencies with offices in New Jersey, New York City, Toronto and Los Angeles, and a partner agency in London.
Founder Dan Smith’s goal for the company was to offer unparalleled customer service and work to exceed, not simply meet, client expectations. This fundamental principle of Smith Publicity resonated with clients, and over 15 years later, we’ve worked with over 1600 authors and publishers, as well as entrepreneurs, consultants, publicly-held companies and businesses representing a wide range of industries.
