Public Relations (PR)
Pharma & Biotech
|Highlights:||Quality, innovative and carefully crafted writing and public relations form the core of On the Point Communications, LLC. We understand that technology is changing the way people communicate with each other and the businesses that serve them. The web and digital/social media have reshaped communications and public relations. Audiences have become more segmented as well as more sophisticated in how they filter the enormous amounts of information they receive on a daily basis. As a result, companies need communications and public relations strategies that embrace the appropriate digital and social media tactics yet still leverage the nuances of solid writing and strategic messaging. On The Point Communications ties these pieces together to produce results that help clients meet their business or public affairs goals.
Mark Evans leads the firm and has more than 20 years of experience working in public relations and as a freelance writer/editor. His strengths lie in his ability to help clients sift through the noise and select the right strategies to target their individual needs. Mark advises clients on a wide variety of topics, including strategic messaging, issues management, communications program development, digital/social media strategy and crisis communications. He is a skilled writer who has written everything from media releases to speeches to in-depth magazine articles.
For three years, Mark taught writing and editing to students at Texas A&M University.
Fees for work performed will be conducted through SafePay Escrow to ensures both
parties’ protection and satisfaction should disputes arise. I will only work with employers who agree to the escrow service. When using SafePay, I prefer payment by check, e-check or wire transfer funds.
My preferred method of contact is through email, which I am constantly checking throughout the day. I also am happy to communicate via phone, Skype or instant messenger should that be more convenient.
As part of any assignment, I provide regular status updates. Depending on the length of the project, I prefer at least a weekly touch-base phone call with the employer.
I am typically available from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. CST, Monday through Friday. However, if needed, I can often be reached easiest by email at other times. Unless special circumstances warrant, I am typically not available on weekends.
I encourage open, candid communication, so I appreciate any feedback from employers.
The On The Point Communications Advantage:
Because I am a small shop, I am able to offer personalized service at reasonable prices that cannot be matched by other firms. You receive the benefits of working with someone who has been in the business for quite awhile without having to pay premium prices. Whether it's a writing assigment or a public relations project, I enjoy working closely with employers so I can ensure we achieve the employer's goals.
