Daly-Swartz Public Relations
Daly-Swartz Public Relations is a full-service marketing communications firm founded in Orange County, California in 1986. Our clients demand greater brand recognition, increased sales and greater awareness of their products/services to maintain current customers and attract new ones. Our job is to make that happen. Over the years we’ve developed strong contacts and long-standing relationships with movers and shakers who can make or break a company: the media, analysts, key influencers, decision makers and the public. We’ve gained their trust by communicating our clients' positioning honestly, clearly and forcefully. We also develop a strategy to disseminate this information: it’s as if a company suddenly had 100,000 sales people telling the marketplace who they are, what they represent, what they offer, what their brand represents and why they should be chosen over the competition.
