Media Communications Executive Launches PR Firm Focused on Small Business


Veteran media communications expert April A.

Offering marketing and PR services that small businesses need most, ANPR seeks to help small businesses build brand awareness, gain market share, and establish themselves as industry experts. April Neill Public Relations is now open for business and is accepting new clients.

"It's through developing meaningful relationships with our clients and delivering creative solutions with our proprietary Fusion Five Method that we're able to design and implement innovative campaigns that build our client's brand reputations and impact their bottom line," says President and Founder, April A. Neill. "Our firm is passionate about helping small businesses maximize their brand messaging and achieve their business goals."

Neill began her career as an entrepreneur in 1995 when she founded The Messenger's Directory, a Christian resource directory that was published annually in the Chicago area. Neill went on to establish the Christian Publicity Network and has planned and supervised the PR efforts of several health books and publications as well as the PR efforts of a large chiropractic group for over 5 years. Neill has represented dozens of campaigns in her career and worked with hundreds of businesses. Having garnered top tier media attention and placements for clients, Neill has a proven track record of securing media coverage for campaigns and events and connecting brand messages with target audiences.

A humanitarian at heart, Neill recently joined a mission trip to the Dominican Republic and Haiti where she assisted a team of Doctors who brought chiropractic care to over 50,000 villagers and funds for an orphanage for abandoned children. Neill resides in Plainfield, IL with her husband, Ron, and is the mother of four children, Michael, age 27, Steven, age 25, Trevor, age 19, and Kelly, age 18. In her spare time, Neill enjoys traveling, reading, cooking, and swimming.

The firm will serve clients across the small business spectrum that can benefit from Neill's hands-on marketing and media experience as an entrepreneur and publisher and her recent experience as Director of Public Relations for Chiro One Wellness Centers, one of the Nation's leading chiropractic groups.
