Trusting someone in this business is always tricky and at times it can not only be scary but dangerous. However, not when it comes to Dan Smith and his team at Smith Publicity. Ever since I walked into his office and explained my dreams that I wanted to come true, I felt as though I was no longer alone in the fight to build a name and a career. I not only gained a dynamic publicity team, but I gained an extension to my family.
Their excitement and encouragement for their clients never seem to fade. Without question, I knew that Smith Publicity looked out for me. All these things I could never put a price tag on. Working with Dan and his staff was truly a gift. Everyone at Smith Publicity goes above and beyond to make sure everything is perfect. I was honored to have Dan Smith at my wedding and truly it would not have been complete without him–he is what I consider a business partner, a great friend, an advisor and a part of my family. I find myself calling him to share how my day went after my publicity appointments occur. One sunny California day involved calling the office to tell everyone I met Trace Atkins after appearing on The Doctors show. I felt as though I was calling one of my best friends– Dan not only radiates that vibe but also those surrounding him at his office deliver an unbelievable feeling of friendship. Today, I’m still honored to have the privilege to work with Smith Publicity. As my life continues and my dreams keep becoming reality, I wouldn’t want anyone else by my side. Ever.”

Dedication and passion yielded ‘eyeballs.’ In one month alone the site had nearly 12,000 ‘hits’ – a major accomplishment given its intellectual content. I am grateful!”

When I first met with Dan Smith and his staff, I knew without doubt it was their compassion for my project and dedication to my cause that made them the PR Company I was blessed to have found. What their staff did and the work ethic they showed were far more than I realized, until I witnessed it first hand, as a client. I know I could not have found a better team. Thank you Smith Publicity, Dan and your team.”
