“Some are born great, some achieve greatness, and some hire public relations officers.”
Daniel J. Boorstin
We could tell you how great we are and why you should work with us, but then we realised it’s probably better you hear from some of our clients (real superstars just like you). Feel free to read some of the kind words, emails and thank you notes we’ve received.
“Thank you so much, Burke. I recommended you to an ex-astronaut who has a new book out. Hope he contacts you. You’re the best!”
“I’m so proud to have Burke Allen as a key member of Team Landau. He really gets P.R. and knows everyone in the media; it seems like any time I go to do an interview with a TV station, radio station or newspaper, they know Burke. And his attention to detail and hard work are awesome. He’s my boy… love him.”
“Burke Allen has been an angel in my life, pure and simple. Not only is he one of the most decent men I’ve ever known, but he has to be the hardest working man in media. His organizational skills and his attention to detail never cease to amaze me, and don’t even get me started on this man’s energy. He never stops! Working with Burke and Allen Media Strategies has changed my life in ways that are almost impossible to describe. I only wish my late husband, Bob Denver of “Gilligan’s Island”, could have been the recipient of Burke’s TLC with his clients. I know one thing for sure – Bob is smiling down, knowing that I’m in good hands. Thank you, Burke, from both of us.”
“Burke and the team at Allen Media Strategies have been amazing to work with. They were able to get me on dozens of radio appearances for me within the first few weeks and continued to creatively promote my book, ‘Uncensored America: Thought-Provoking Poetry on Faith Family and Freedom’. They guided me through best practices of the interviews and worked to create fresh new pitches on a regular basis to allow us to take advantage of each news cycle. I’d highly recommend working with them!”
“Allen Media Strategies has been a game-changer for my mission. Burke, Shaili, and the team have helped me refine my mission, clarify my message, coached me on my presentations, and secured more media appearances than I would have ever believed. They are indispensable partners and friends to my efforts.”
“Couldn’t be happier! My months with Burke and his team resulted in strong media appearance on ABC’s The View, CNN, MSNBC, FOX NEWS, and hundreds of other national and international television/radio/print outlets! Not only did he provide an excellent service, he taught me confidence while in front of the camera. So thankful for Burke and Allen Media Strategies.”
“Allen Media Strategies is your one-stop-shop for all things PR! Burke Allen is an established trend-setter in the world of media marketing strategies and his informed guidance is unparalleled. Thank you for all the work you’ve done on behalf of Voices of Classic Soul.”
“Burke, just wanted to send a huge big thank you for making this all happen with your tireless efforts.. I really believe we’ve opened up many more avenues for this and other future books. Thank you so much!”
“Your team has worked nonstop to promote the book and secure print, radio, TV and magazine interviews. Thank you for your commitment to this project.”
“Thanks to you and your team Burke – more than 3 minutes is an eternity in television so I feel very lucky to have had this great coverage. It aired across nearly half of the state!”
“We are deeply grateful for your efforts that went above and beyond. Thank you for a great campaign!”
“Burke and the entire team at Allen Media Strategies are top-notch. They consistently secure media placements for our authors, while professionally and expertly coaching them through the process. Ballast Books is proud to exclusively use AMS for our media bookings and training.”
“These guys are great! Since working with Burke and his team at Allen Media Strategies, we’ve been featured on dozens of television, radio and print outlets in all size markets. From CNN to Fox to Good Morning America, The Rachael Ray Show and ABC News 20/20. Allen Media Strategies has taken great care of me every step of the way. We’ve sold lots of product and had lots of fun, all at a very reasonable price. If you’re serious about succeeding with your media, marketing and P.R., I strongly recommend Allen Media Strategies.”
“In my 35 years in the entertainment business, Burke and company is hands-down the best PR/Management association I have had. Burke takes such a personal approach that he actually gives me homework, searching out the latest findings/news relating to my work so that I can consistently stay well informed in my area(s). Best of all, we always have fun together. That is such a plus in this business!”
“I have worked with some of the biggest publicity firms in the country and Burke Allen’s Allen Media Strategies is as good as it gets.”
“I count the team at Allen Media Strategies as treasured friends —the kind of friends who jump in at just the right moment, catch our vision, and work tirelessly to bring about big wins. They make our authors shine!”
“Burke Allen and the team at Allen Media Strategies blew me away; I’m still catching my breath! I was literally overwhelmed with media coverage. It was much more than I could’ve imagined. In less than one month, I had multiple network television hits, including several appearances on FOX NEWS CHANNEL and CANADIAN NETWORK TELEVISION. I did interviews on huge syndicated radio shows including MANCOW, COAST TO COAST AM, G. GORDON LIDDY, CURTIS SLIWA and THE JIM BOHANNON SHOW. Plus, I did dozens of phoners on top rated local radio stations in New York City, San Francisco, San Diego, Cincinnati and lots more! One single Allen Media Strategies appearance netted me over 240 email leads for my website! This kind of coverage would’ve cost me hundreds of thousands of dollars to buy, and the credibility I’ve received from all those media appearances is priceless. Burke and his team’s personal attention, expert media training and extreme sense of ethics is outstanding, and Burke’s willingness to go above and beyond the call of duty for me as a client was amazing. If you want media coverage, use this firm!”
“It is with great pleasure that I write this strong letter of recommendation for the excellent publicist services of Allen Media Strategies. AMS has served as publicist for my book “Heartbeat” a novel about America’s uninsured. During the recent intense national health-care reform debate, AMS, directed by Burke Allen, has demonstrated a focused, dynamic and well connected representation to help me immediately get my message out. AMS staffers Will Bower and [previous staffer] Aaron Leistner, working in tandem early in the campaign, have already booked me on FOX National TV News “American Newsroom,” nationally syndicated radio “America Tonight with Kate Delaney,” nationally syndicated Business Talk Radio, and many others. Should you decide to retain Allen Media Strategies to serve as your publicists I am sure that you will find that Burke, Will, and Aaron are knowledgeable, professional and a pleasure to work with.”
“Wow! I can’t begin to express how pleased and amazed I am by the comprehensive work Allen Media Strategies has done for my book campaigns. I can count on Burke Allen and his staff’s professionalism, expertise in targeting the perfect media for my books, and reputation for nailing down hard-to-get exposure. Time and again, they have gone WAY beyond the call of duty — and I’ve received the media bookings and sales to prove it. I’m thrilled to have them in my corner.”
“Burke and his team at Allen Media Strategies are consummate professionals who consistently exceeded my highest expectations. In my opinion, the best in the business.”
“We have dealt with Allen Media on many occasions over a five year period, and they have represented multiple clients to us. We have found them to be the most professional organization of its type that we have ever encountered. Their attention to detail is as thorough as I have seen over my 40 year career. In many situations, I feel like they are working as our partner, even when deep down I know they represent their client. I have worked with many events on a national level and have never seen a group better and more personable then Allen Media. Burke has clearly been able to push his values through his entire organization.”
“I hired Allen Media Strategies after spending a great deal of money on promotion and publicity for my book with a number of other people and firms. I was very gun-shy since I hadn’t seen very good results from the others. I worked with Allen Media Strategies for a few months and my book became a bestseller with thousands of copies sold and a number of inquiries from foreign publishers for translation. The media exposure Allen Media Strategies was able to get me was definitely a huge contributor to my success.
I can’t speak highly enough of their professionalism, knowledge of the media marketplace, communication style and approach and overall responsiveness and positive attitude. To a person, everyone in the firm I dealt with was amazing. I highly, highly recommend them if you are looking for exposure and you want to raise your visibility in the market for your book, product or service.”
“Burke Allen is a wonderful guy to have in your corner. He’s a creative, think-outside-the-box kind of guy who has tons of connections that he shares with his clients. More importantly, Burke is a true ally – someone who truly values his clients’ success and does everything he can to achieve it – and a great motivator.”
“Burke Allen and his team overwhelmed my partner and me with a flood of great bookings practically from Day One. Even more importantly, they¹ve knocked our socks off with their personal responsiveness to our needs and their commitment to helping us succeed in our ultimate goals. I highly recommend Burke Allen and Allen Media Strategies!”
“Burke Allen and his staff are consummate professionals with a heart. They are a delight to work with.”
“Thanks Burke; you really know your stuff!”
“With acceptance and non-critical support, Burke Allen’s excellent coaching ignited my dreams, and showed me how to realize them. He taught me the importance of unswerving commitment and extraordinary faith… and grew my candle of inspiration into a bonfire. Thank you…. with all my heart, thank you!”
“It was my great pleasure to work with you and your team here at the California State Fair. I could not have asked for a more congenial and helpful partner than Allen Media Strategies. You were always there for our marketing department when we requested bios, approved photos, and special requests from the media for interviews. The meet and greet we collaboratively facilitated for our VIPs was efficient and yet very personal and greatly appreciated by our guests.”
“I happily give my highest recommendation to Allen Media Strategies. Burke Allen and Will Bower are two caring individuals who offered much personal attention and a deep understanding of my book and how to pitch it. My goals were two-fold, in that I wanted to create inroads for myself as a radio personality in addition to getting press for my non-fiction work. I have made numerous contacts who continue to book me as an ongoing commentator. I’ve been interviewed by many nationally syndicated shows who have provided a heightened awareness of my book, and I’ve also managed to raise the important debate it covers to a much larger audience than I could ever have imagined. As a first time author entering this arena, there were moments when I felt, to borrow Robin Williams’ words, “like I was riding a psychotic horse toward a burning stable.” Will and Burke helped me to learn the process and I grew exponentially as a result.
Burke, Will, and I am sure, the entire AMS team, are reasonable, loyal, savvy and hardworking individuals who truly earn their keep. I was thrilled with the results they were able to get for me and hope to have a continuing working relationship with AMS for a long time to come.”
“Burke, I just wanted to thank you for your consistent and helpful coaching. As you know, I had a desire to to do “something” to be semi-famous but did not know what. Even when a personal crisis came up and I tried to quit you were right there with that “tough love” making sure I stuck with it. I respect you so much for that because I had already paid you and told you I did not expect anything else from you. Yet you called me and talked me into continuing on. You truly went way above and beyond the call of duty. I can honestly say I never could-or-would have done it without you. You are the very embodiment of a good coach; you were knowledgeable and informative while coaxing ideas out of me, and perhaps more importantly, you were patient yet persistent in getting me to follow through on those ideas and put them into writing. I would never have gotten my book together and gotten interviewed on the radio without you. You have found your calling and I would STRONGLY recommend you to anyone who needs help getting a “rough idea” polished into a fine “gem stone” ready to be presented to the public.Thanks again Burke!”
“I just wanted to take a second to say a quick THANK YOU to the team at Allen Media Strategies and the team at Thomas Nelson for your stellar work throughout the publicity process of my book launch. Your hard work to promote the message of “The Seven Laws of Love” is tremendously appreciated! It has been an exhilarating experience and I’ve learned a lot a great deal from each of you along the way.
I’m truly grateful for your professionalism, support, tenacity, hard work and encouragement. It has been a privilege working with you and I hope we have the opportunity to work together again in the future.
P.S. Thanks, Burke! You and your team did a stellar job. Thanks for everything.”
“Burke, thank you for all of your help again this year with our Heat N’ The Hills Chilifest; it was fantastic! I do believe it was the smoothest one yet. I have had nothing but positive feedback and the Artimus Pyle Band was fantastic! Thank you for supporting our efforts in the community with this free family event. Looking forward to next year already; It will be Heat N’ The Hills number fifteen so we’re gonna have to go to work on blowing it up bigger and better than ever!
It was great having you on site, and thanks again for everything to you and your team at Allen Media Strategies!”
“Burke is one of the most knowledgable media consultants I have ever worked with. He not only has extensive knowledge in developing winning station formats but his business and marketing expertise is limitless. Burke’s network of contacts is also very impressive and I am constantly amazed at his personal and professional friends in the industry.”
“I have been so pleased working with Burke Allen. His knowledge of the field, his insight and his genuine sense of caring for my success is amazing. Burke has been able to discuss my career goals with me and help to keep me focused on the goal while not getting stuck or diverted by the daily ‘stuff’ that can alter the course.I think every professional entertainer, or speaker should have Burke on his or her team.”
“Burke produces great results. He is easy to work with, smart and very savvy about the business. Burke Allen positions his clients for ultimate success. Highly recommended.”

“I am so highly impressed with what you have done regarding my book. Great work, Burke!”
“Burke is a true professional that is a pleasure to work with.”
“The team at Allen Media Strategies is the best I’ve ever worked with. In just one two week period, Burke Allen and his team scored several major interviews for me and scheduled three big book signings with supporting media coverage. Burke and the pros on his team really care about their clients and their success. I can’t thank you enough.”
“Burke, I only hope that Landau understands the incredible service that you provide for him. Your calm manner, attention to details, and hands-on participation at events as well as in the planning stages is unprecedented in my 42 years of producing shows with thousands of artists in all types of venues. You should write a book on how to “really” manage an artist.”
“Allen Media Strategies is an incredible PR firm and I am lucky to have them in my corner.”
Super happy! Thank you! Allen Media Strategies rocks!
