Public Relations for small businesses may seem like a luxury, however, Tonya McKenzie would beg to differ. Her firm, Sand & Shores, is a public relations firm with storytelling and identity branding is incorporated to increase client’s exposure to the marketplace. Her niche market of speakers, authors, entrepreneurs, and non-profit organizations, benefits by her drive to execute superb service.

Sand and Shores was established out of the growing need for small business owners and entrepreneurs’ concern that small budgets and unilateral advertising was not enough to see dynamic results from their investment. Tonya’s philosophy is that growing a business requires a large amount of activity, not a large budget. Developing strategic partnerships, along with keeping a high level of communication with the public through press releases, authentic stories and targeted events in conjunction with focused advertising will garner an inbound marketing pipeline to establish steady growth for your business.
