Buie & Co. provides public relations, governmental affairs, community outreach and creative services. That’s the straightforward, cut-and-dry description anyway. But the truth of it is, we are happy warriors. For us, there is no same-old, same-old. There is no autopilot. Every day is different, and that’s why we unabashedly love what we do. We thrive on the vibrancy of this business. The always-fluid, ever-changing challenges serve as the spark for our high-energy, high-spirited approach. We mix free-ranging thinking and new technologies with a respect for traditional methods to achieve results. Yes, results. In the end, changing minds, opening eyes and getting your message out is serious business.
But nobody goes at it more happily than Buie & Co.

____

Public
Relations

You have a message to get out- we know who to contact. That would be an empty promise if it weren’t for decades of work we’ve invested in building deep relationships with local and national media. Additionally, we can help you craft your strategic message to enhance effectiveness, tap into the most appropriate social media channels, even line up speaking opportunities. Need help in a crisis? Our all-hands-on-deck approach includes researching breaking stories, developing messaging and prepping spokespeople for the media. Public relations is all about results. And we get results.

____

Governmental Affairs

Effecting change within the local political framework happens only with knowing the ins and outs of the government process. With a focus on Central Texas, we work regularly with city and county departments, community groups and business leaders. We understand the process well. By persuading key stakeholders, engaging the public and reaching new audiences, we’ve tackled even the most controversial projects.

____

Community Outreach

Outreach is its own unique challenge. It begins and ends with transparency and integrity. Or to put it in simple terms, you have to do what you say you’re going to do. There is no song and dance that is going to engage the public or generate goodwill. We have seen our proactive and open-dialogue approach facilitate communications, build common ground and bring together diverse stakeholders to strike a balance and mobilize support.

____

Creative
Services

Even if you have a great message to share, it doesn’t matter if people don’t take the time to read it. Buie & Co.’s creative process focuses on packaging your content in an incredibly compelling way to create a memorable experience, provoke action or change perception. Our approach is always collaborative; most clients even say it's fun! Whether you need a new logo or an entire brand redesign, a website, custom graphics or unique marketing materials and promotional items, our team knows how to deliver powerful materials so you stand out. Want proof? Check out some of our creative work here.
