New Bern, N.C. (March 2018) – Laura Burgess Marketing (LBM) celebrates 15 years as the public relations and marketing communications firm of choice for the law enforcement, tactical, military, shooting sports, boating and recreational fishing markets. In this highly competitive industry, LBM has distinguished itself with its first-rate customer service and its organic, flexible and nimble business structure, capable of adjusting swiftly to its clients’ needs. LBM also prides itself on the connections it has made within the law enforcement, military, private security and tactical markets throughout its 15-year history.
LBM was founded in 2003 in Portsmouth, New Hampshire by firearms industry veteran Laura Burgess as a boutique public relations and marketing communications firm. The company relocated to its current location in New Bern, North Carolina in the summer of 2010 and continues to help companies engage their customers and sell product through traditional and digital media methods. Now in its 15th year, LBM has grown to include a satellite office in Maryland, as well as opened a new division of its brand, Make Big Noise (MBN), in 2014. MBN is a press release distribution software service that provides start-ups, small businesses and busy businesses in niche industries the opportunity to reach the media and news outlets that care about their stories.
Laura Burges, Founder and President, LBM
“I am pleased to have served so many companies in the shooting sports and law enforcement industries over these past 15 years. We have had the pleasure of helping many new companies get their marketing feet under them and launching them successfully. Our success, however, is also in part to our industry media. We are deeply indebted to all of the editors, writers and bloggers that have shared our content with their audience. Whether it’s just reposting a press release or reviewing a product, it is our industry media that has helped our clients’ businesses grow,” said Laura Burgess, founder and president of LBM.
The goal of LBM has always been to service and propel the brands of small to medium sized businesses who often either do not have the budget, time or marketing expertise. With over 40 combined years of experience in marketing, corporate management and public relations, LBM helps companies build better brand awareness to the media and their customers through traditional and emerging media methods.
LBM currently offers a full range of public relations and marketing communication services as part of its retainer program, including, but not limited to, public and writer relations, event planning, media analysis, scheduling and buying, advertising strategies, product introductions, corporate communications, market research, editorial placement, product placement, digital and content marketing, news wire services and social media optimization.
