CEDIA, InfoComm and CTA-Focused

As a CEDIA, InfoComm and CTA public relations and marketing agency, we believe communication with your audiences is paramount to building your company’s awareness and value to your customers.

What We Do

We communicate your brand’s values to highly targeted customers, regions and industries by helping you Be Seen, Be Heard, and Get Results.

How We Do It

We accomplish this by executing a strategic campaign with the right mix of marketing and public relations tools to accomplish your goals.

We don’t just think up great strategic public relations plans. We execute them.


Be Seen. Be Heard. Get Results.

It's your brand. Take charge of it.

Public Relations

We don’t just think up great strategic public relations plans. We execute them – with discipline, precision, and fervent passion to see our clients succeed in fulfilling their mission.

Marketing & Branding

A good brand is a powerful asset. It distinguishes you from competitors. It helps you carve out a “share of mind.” It helps you be the “first call” solution for the product or service you sell.

Social Media

People are talking about your brand and now you have the opportunity to become part of the conversation rather the subject of it. Whether it be a Facebook Page, Twitter updates or blogging, we can bring you into the conversation.

Content Marketing

Delivering A+, professional copy that sells, persuades, informs or entertains, if need be… transforming complex information into a language that your intended audiences can understand.

Website Design

Striking the right balance between form and functionality, our award-winning team of graphic designers, copywriters and communication specialists combine to produce websites that effectively deliver your message, including websites compatible for mobile phones and tablets.

Design & Collateral

 Everything your customer sees – your advertising, your catalog, your brochure, your business card, your stationary, even your invoices – either reinforces your brand or diminishes it. Marketing Matters’ award-winning creative team will strategically communicate your message clearly, creatively and effectively – hitting the right people, with the right message, at the right time—and doing it again and again.
