My passion is creating brand awareness and customer loyalty. When my clients' succeed, I feel joy knowing I played a role in their success.
What our rockstar clients are saying:
Before I chose Raquel, I was considering paying random companies to put out my press release for a fee. The issue I had was I had no idea the scope of these companies' relationships, how much they would care about my success, or if the people they would put the press release out to would even fit the description of anyone that would care about my content.
I am 110% happy I went with Raquel instead. Within 48 hours she was able to land two interviews, one with The Check Out California Radio And Video Podcast and the other with the most respected local Orange County magazine: OC Weekly. The Podcast allowed me to answer a lot of questions the public has asked, gave me the opportunity to do my first Facebook Live broadcast with worthwhile content where hundreds of listeners tuned and some found it interesting enough to listen the entire 45 mins, and the opportunity to connect with business professionals (hosts Raad Ghantous and Craig Sullivan) who are excited about my new business concept.
The OC Weekly interview has yet to be released to print but I am sure it will be a very positive milestone for us. To all of us from Orange County, OC Weekly commands respect, and this publication will not only win exposure, it wins us greater legitimacy and clout for our forthcoming business.
Raquel Figlo does a fantastic job not only representing her clients well, she is great at connecting with people, and when she takes you under her wing as her client, she shows you by actions over words that she really cares about you.

We are in love with the hard work Raquel does for Badassery Magazine. I am seriously amazed with her connections and her clear desire for our success. She is truly a PR rockstar and is promoting the hell out of us!

“I hired Raquel to help me promote my book and she did an amazing job for me! She was on top of everything, has amazing contacts and helped my book hit #1 on the Book Soup Non Fiction Hardcover Books. She set up my book signing there and helped promote it and the place was sold out! I can't say enough good things about how great of a job she did for me. I will definitely hire again for a future project.

“From concept to completion, Raquel was instrumental for coming up with a concept for a block party art show. Using her many contacts, she was able to arrange for sponsors, music, and was on board throughout the whole process from taking photos throughout the meetings and posting images to the social media sites through the planning stages. I look forward to working with Raquel at my next function.”
