Who Is SMPR?

Sometimes the quickest path to success is the most unconventional.

That’s how we see things at SMPR.

We’re a national company with boots (and stilettos) on the ground in Texas and California, but our approach is unlike most. We believe in providing one all-inclusive package of services without any unexpected charges or hidden fees. We have relationships with writers and media outlets the world over and understand how to give them what they need to tell the most compelling story.

Each member of our talented team brings a unique skill set to the party and we select only the best for every project. That’s when the magic happens.

Because sometimes the path to success is also paved with candy.

And guarded by unicorns.
