About Us

Our team of professionals brings almost 100 years of combined experience to the table.

Our Mission

Proven Media Solutions was established to help clients with great ideas but little access to the media reach target markets. We help our clients get in the press through crafting and pitching content, interviews, and more. We also help them establish credibility through relationship building with key media gatekeepers and other influencers, social media strategy, and digital branding.

Our Process

One unique benefit of working with Proven Media Solutions is our approach to accomplishing client goals. We ask a series of questions to better understand where you and your organization have been, where you are today, and where you need to go. We then recommend communications strategies which provide the best bang for the buck. Upon signing with Proven Media Solutions, the very first deliverable we provide for most clients is an editorial calendar and strategic outline so everyone starts and finishes on the same page.
