Saunders Construction has had the opportunity to work with VOCA Public Relations as our publicist of record since 2016. Their services have ranged from proactive media outreach, customized media list development, content development, strategic PR plan creation, and crisis communications planning and response. In all of this work, Alana and Courtney [have been] knowledgeable, proactive, and professional, culminating in an enjoyable experience. VOCA [is] always trustworthy and willing to put forth the extra effort that is sometimes required during major news announcements and/or crisis situations. Furthermore, I have always found them to be incredibly friendly and empathetic individuals.

As a startup, a travel club in the midst of a pandemic, nonetheless, requires a voice to “get noticed” and share a vision that resonates despite seemingly overwhelming challenges. VOCA Public Relations has lead those efforts by not only understanding our business but the market pulse for leisure travel. The result has been overwhelming coverage giving Manifest top of the mind awareness in the luxury travel space and I’m confident that this accomplishment could not have been accomplished with any other PR firm but VOCA.
Jeff Potter, Founder and CEO, Manifest
We have worked with the VOCA team for over five years now and we consider them an invaluable partner, and a contributor to our success. Alana and Courtney have been instrumental in helping us navigate the challenges associated with new development; as well as significantly expanded our media reach for new project launches. They provide a valued sounding board and have effectively guided us through varied scenarios. And most importantly – they are fun to work with!

I’ve worked with Alana and VOCA for over 10 years and she’s amazing. Alana makes you feel like your business is her business and makes your goals hers too. She’s a great communicator and partner. She’s never afraid to tell you her opinion and when she feels something isn’t going to work, which I value so much. I enjoy her partnership, creativity and integrity and hope to work with her for a long time.

We really enjoy working with Alana. She took the time to “get us,” uses that sense as a template for all of our work, and doesn’t let us forget who we are, either. She is also very thoughtful about our efforts. And, finally, she is just fun to work with.

Expanding to a new market in the restaurant business means educating an entire new customer base on your food and beverage platform, the quality of your product and everything that you offer. VOCA PR has helped us do exactly that and directly contributed to our success, allowing us to open 2 locations in the Denver market since 2014.

The VOCA team is awesome. Led by Alana, they are bright, energetic and downright sassy. They have brought results for the Monaco Denver, more than doubling our exposure in the last year. We couldn’t have found a better agency to help us through our guest-room renovation and our grand re-opening.

Alana and the VOCA Public Relations team have helped promote my business tremendously. They have gotten me featured in every local magazine publication for my city, which has greatly increased my client flow. Alana is organized, on-point, and targets the biggest and best ways to increase exposure. I recommend all the business owners I know to use VOCA Public Relations to bring their business to the next level.
Lauren Mathews—Founder, The Element Center for Integrative Health
We engaged VOCA to help bring awareness and visibility to our growing business. After getting to know us and our key business objectives, VOCA laid out a strategic 12-month plan and immediately began leveraging their deep media contacts to get us placement in targeted publications. After only 3 months, we received placement in 5 major publications that garnered us over $250,000 worth of media exposure. I would highly recommend VOCA to anyone needing a great ROI on their marketing dollars.
