About Epoch 5 Public Relations

Epoch 5 is the leading Long Island public relations firm because we are highly successful at creating positive exposure for our clients, both on Long Island and throughout the tristate area. For many clients, we also play a key role in helping to protect or regain their reputations after controversial or crisis situations. In short, we are known for our expert counsel, the quality of our work, our strategic planning and positioning, and our excellent client service.

While public relations is a core service of our firm, we are a full-service agency that provides programs comprised of integrated communications services. For example, many clients come to us to increase their sales or billings through publicity, but also want to engage their audiences through social media, network with major decision-makers or respond to controversial issues as they arise. Whether it’s getting a business profile in Newsday, building Facebook likes, creating an online newsletter, or organizing a community meeting, Epoch 5 gets the job done.

What sets Epoch 5 apart from other PR companies is the quality of our people and account teams. We are unique in that each client program is managed by seasoned, senior professionals with decades of experience. Many have held positions in the New York City offices of major national and international public relations agencies; other staff members have backgrounds in government, media and corporate communications. All are backed by the hard work of a diverse and experienced staff.
