In the beginning, there were a handful of media outlets, a few events and a growing interest in reaching the specialized segment that later became the most robust minority group in the United States.
By the early '90s, we had become Hispanic market PR pioneers. Wielders of the "Sword and Shield" approach. We created our own tools when the industry didn't offer them and along the way, helped the discipline evolve from a "good will" gesture into one of the most important tools we now have for changing multicultural consumer behavior.
Along the way, our unique expertise enabled us to extend our public relations strategies into other segments of the population. Today, minority consumers have become the majority in the top 20 U.S. markets, and our clients are tapping into us to reach the total market, made up of these diverse segments. From Fortune 1000's to local non-profits, San Jose Public Relations has been called upon to build brands, put out fires and shape the marketplace in memorable ways because of its stellar reputation.

With the ever-changing marketing landscape, connecting brands with consumers has never been more challenging. From social & digital programs to traditional media relations to experiential marketing, from working with key influencers and celebrities, SJ Public Relations uses an array of communications channels to help clients connect their brands with consumers where they live, work and play.

SJ Public Relations believes that championing causes that have the power to change lives for the better is one of the most important uses of marketing communications. Whether helping our clients increase organ donor registrants or helping the state protect children from child abuse or working to improve communities through health and spiritual-related initiatives, SJPR delivers strategic public relations campaigns that help clients gain program advocates and impart messages move consumers into action.

SJPR provides counsel and develops targeted communication programs for clients in a time of crisis. Whether helping clients handle an internal issue that affects its employees to implementing an external effort to manage a product recall, SJPR offers a breadth of expertise in issues and reputation management and has the insight needed to manage complicated business issues.

Recognizing that if companies truly want to serve their community, they must commit to programs that extend beyond a simple one-off initiative or event, instead they must employ a long-term strategy to leave a lasting footprint.
For more than three decades SJPR has helped clients build relationships and develop long-term initiatives from fundraising to sponsoring national community organizations to positively affect the communities they serve.

Leveraging more than 30 years of Hispanic marketing expertise and consumer insights, SJPR consumer education practice helps clients develop targeted multicultural marketing communications programs to educate multicultural consumers about the company’s brand or relevant corporative initiatives.

SJPR has long understood the power of word-of-mouth marketing and have been an avid supporter since we started our company.
