“Neri PR has been a vital component of 44 Business Capital’s marketing strategy for over 10 years now. From a complete re-branding campaign and website design to transitioning with us as we were purchased by Berkshire Bank, Ellen Neri has always been there to help us maintain a consistent brand and marketing approach.  As we moved from an independent small business to a department within a $13 billion bank, Ellen navigated the high wire act of balancing compliance with the creation of effective marketing collateral.  44 Business Capital’s success during our 12 years in existence can be attributed greatly to the work Neri PR has done for us.  I value our relationship with Ellen Neri and would refer her any small to medium sized business in need of Marketing and PR support.”

“Neri PR helped to catapult my massage practice to a whole new level with the innovative design of a new logo. Ellen was able to capture the essence of my business and my personality to create just the branding I was looking for. I have received nothing but positive feedback from clients and it has also enhanced my visibility on social media. It was a pleasure working with Ellen and her team and I would highly recommend to any small business for their marketing needs.”

“We utilized the services of Ellen Neri and Neri PR to promote a fundraiser for a newly created memorial scholarship.  As a fledgling organization, we had a lot of ideas, energy and enthusiasm, but no idea how to harness all of that for purposes of marketing our fundraising events.  Ellen took our ideas, concepts, thoughts and wishes and turned them into professional, beautiful marketing tools – including building a website, creating the brand, and impressively promoting our mission and events through multiple social media outlets, such as Facebook and Twitter.  Ellen worked with multiple designers and vendors, and managed many details to make sure our logo, message and event were consistently represented.  She provided many great ideas and creative solutions to any issues that we faced.  As a result of her efforts, we far exceeded our fundraising goals and plan to continue to use her for further events.

We would not hesitate to use Ellen and Neri PR for any future business or nonprofit promotions as we know she will pour her heart into the work necessary to make such endeavors a success.”

“As East King Street in Malvern transformed into a lively shopping district with new restaurants, boutiques and luxury flats, The Picket Fence was long overdue for a much-needed makeover. Ellen listened to my vision, created a strategy, time frame and realistic budget. She understood that as a small business owner, I needed to work in phases and being closed would affect my bottom line. Keeping in mind my “little shop with the big ideas” I wanted to keep the feel of my grandparent’s1905 shop. Ellen surpassed my expectations.  She directed everything from the renovation project of painting and new plank flooring to color palette selection, signage, logo redesign, as well as social media content creation and email campaign.

Ellen kept a running update via social media so my loyal customers could see the transformation. This entire project was a dream come true, I feel like Cinderella at the ball and I am attracting so many new shoppers and getting lots of repeat business.”

“Ellen Neri and her associates are more than a marketing and communications firm on Philadelphia’s Main Line—they are chefs. Neri PR has the unique ability to take a few pieces of good stock and blend them into a hearty stew.

I called Ellen from New Orleans a few months after Katrina. I asked for help to bring together a broad cross-section of faculty, staff and administrators at a college in the Charm City. My school, the second largest institution of higher education in Louisiana, was struggling to reclaim its place in the higher education community and we needed a comprehensive strategic plan to get us over the top. With the skillfulness of a master chef the Neri group helped us design a strategic plan that met the college’s need not for stew as I had thought—but for gumbo.

Our institution is indebted to Ellen for how she took a kaleidoscope of people honoring vastly diverse cultures and blended us into a festive buffet that celebrated all the people of our college and the gulf region. If I ever need a similar kind of assistance again there’s no doubt—I’m calling the chef.”

“My relationship with Ellen Neri and Neri PR has benefited me and my company beyond expectation. The tasks Ellen accomplished were professional, well thought out, timely delivered and transformed haphazard process into a unified, recurring theme. Today, we have a clearer vision of who we are and what we offer.”

  • Chris Caniglia, PresidentAll Phase Electric Co., Upper Darby, PA

“After working with a handful of ad agencies and PR firms over the years, I was looking for a firm who would listen to my concerns and implement the vision I have for my business going forward. Embarking on a rebranding strategy including a complete redesign of our web site, Ellen Neri in conjunction with Lark Design couldn't have been more responsive, professional and creative. Today, I have implemented a strong, new look and feel, building on the brand my father began over 65 years ago.”

  • Michael Cook, OwnerWalter J. Cook Jeweler Paoli, PA

"Neri PR has been an asset to General Warren Inne in the complete make-over of our website to attract new clients and place our pages towards the top of Google and other search engines via improved SEO. With the help of Ellen Neri and her team, we also now have the capability to manage the content of the site which allows realtime updates with no fees or delays as with a traditional webmaster relationship. I highly recommend Neri PR for any small to medium business that needs a one-on–one PR relationship."
