A Delaware marketing agency for organizations
that inspire action and effect change.

Hook PR blends journalistic skills and marketing savvy to help changemakers differentiate, engage and grow.

You will find that we take a giant step beyond what most marketing and public relations specialists offer. Our deep roots in journalism give us the expertise to develop well-researched brand stories and content in language your readers will easily grasp and appreciate.

We stay at the forefront of the proven marketing methods for engaging consumers — and for us that means people from all walks of life and ethnic backgrounds.

Based in Lewes, Delaware, our virtual team works with organizations across the Mid-Atlantic states.

The values that inspire us.

Resourcefulness

Do what you can, with what you have, where you are.
Teddy Roosevelt

We understand the financial limitations in nonprofit and public sectors, and we pride ourselves on offering smart and cost-effective solutions.

Creativity

The chief enemy of creativity is “good” sense.
Pablo Picasso

Facts are the backbone of content, but creativity makes it interesting. We help our clients distinguish themselves from the crowd with messages that intrigue their readers.

Passion

Man is only great when he acts from passion.
Benjamin Disraeli

We love what we do and the satisfaction we get from working alongside organizations that are truly making a difference in the world.

Simplicity

You have to work hard to get your thinking clean to make it simple.
Steve Jobs

Authenticity and simplicity characterize our communication style, both in the way we interact with our clients and in the messages we create for them.
