Pietryla PR & Marketing is a boutique PR firm in Chicago. We work best with clients that are managing a watershed moment like launching a new product, seeking funding, going through a branding shift or implementing a new automation strategy.

We specialize in media relations, marketing automation, crisis communications, communication content development and corporate strategy. We also offer digital marketing and online reputation management services.

What sets us apart is our ability to be nimble. We are a small staff that takes ownership of each client account, but our flexibility allows us to expand or contract based on need.

You’ll never work with someone you don’t know and who isn’t responsible for strategy — but if you need to do something that requires extra hands or a special skill we can get that too.

Right now, we are most often called upon to write and deliver a strategy with PR and/or marketing automation baked in.

Many companies know they need to automate their storytelling habits but don’t know where to start. And, if you try to tell a story with the right tools but the story is flat — no good either. PR and solid automation skills go hand-in-hand. We are set-up do do both very well.
