Who are we?
Ann Marie and Ed Mayuga have been in business with AMM Communications, since 2008. In that time, we have worked with businesses large and small to increase awareness of their products and services, all with the goal to sell more to their customers. We believe in top-of-mind awareness (TOMA), and we hustle every day to achieve this awareness for our clients.
Both of us are from Missouri and our state is famous for being the "Show Me State." We know that many people are skeptical at the power and value of PR, and do not engage in digital marketing because they feel that it is unproven. They want to be shown how it works.
The favorite question in St. Louis is "Where did you go to high school?" (St. Louis Priory for Ed. Glendale High School in Springfield, MO for Ann Marie). We begin every project and relationship with our clients with the understanding that they want results and they want to be shown how PR and digital marketing works.
What does an Integrated Approach to Public Relations Look Like?
Our years of experience in both sales and marketing have shown us that no amount of marketing will help a product or service if the salesperson cannot sell it. However, if the salespeople are actively involved with the marketing process, which increases mutual understanding between the business development and marketing functions, and leads to greater sales success.
We believe in breaking down silos of influence within organizations.
