WHAT WE DO

Services

Public Relations

Cooper Smith Agency’s primary focus is securing positive media coverage for our clients, their products, services and projects, particularly in a business-to-business environment.

Social Media

Talking directly to your core audiences is oftentimes more effective than going through traditional media. We help our clients showcase their expertise, highlight their products' best uses and feature their latest news throughout their social media channels.

Product Placements

Our building products and home decor clients have “starred” in hundreds of TV shows, high-profile showhouses, celebrity homes and magazine spreads as direct result of our hard work and aggressive, proactive efforts.

Storytelling

There's no one to better tell your brand's stories than, well, your brand. We take charge of storytelling for our clients to create stories that inspire, entertain and inform.

The Benefits of Specialization

With the right tools, any job is easier. Same can be said about industry knowledge and specialized expertise.

CHARACTERISTICS OF EXCELLENCE

Each member of our team is expected to...

Seek out the “why” for everything we do and produce.
Elevate everything. Always seek to make something more significant than it initially appears.
Avidly pursue storytelling.
Be a detail-oriented, engaged self-starter and problem-solver who begins with the end in mind.
Anticipate what people want next.
Always be learning — “sharpening their saws.”
Always ask “now what” — is there something else we can do with this?

What We Believe
