Overview

Michael A. Burns & Associates was founded in 1989 with several guiding principles:

Clients would get more than their money’s worth in great work. Credit and compensation would go to the associates who did the work, not just to the name on the door. And maybe everyone could have a little fun.

It would be a place where Dallas public relations professionals would want to be and where clients would want to stay. It would be a place where loyalty to clients, employees and vendors would never be betrayed. And it would be a place where nice guys finish first.

Today we are a full-service public relations agency with core skills in planning and implementing communications programs that can be local, national or international in scope, but that have an aggressive media relations effort at their core.

We offer a broad range of creative services — from Web site development, to print and video production, to multi-media presentations and more. We also specialize in helping non-U.S. companies market their products and services in the United States. We now number more than 20 professionals. Clients are still getting more than their money’s worth, and most days, we're having fun adding that value!

Client Successes

MB&A Creates The Mother of All Product Placements

When we learned that another American icon “brand” – Niagara Falls – had a series of wooden viewing decks that were subject to continual water spray, we instantly knew there could be mutually beneficial opportunities for Niagara Falls and Thompson’s Water Seal. We also learned that the Niagara Falls State Park was spending several thousand dollars a year to purchase deck stain for the wood. Budgets at the Park are fairly tight, so a product donation sealed the deal.

The Newark Star Ledger business section ran our announcement story with their own comment, “Enter the mother of all product placements." Five of the six key coatings trade magazines also covered the story. We're now exploring a new VIP program -- for "Very Important Places" -- based on this model.

Market Intelligence

They say that everything’s big in Texas – it’s a great big state, with big oil, big money, big cars and trucks … and yes, even big hair.

But at Michael Burns & Associates, you don’t necessarily need a big budget to get big results from your public relations campaigns. Our roots are deeply ingrained in the local political, social and media community, but our expertise stretches well beyond the Texas borders.

With a service office in New York City, and as the sole Dallas member of the world’s leading network of independent public relations counseling firms – The Worldcom Public Relations Group – we can leverage your programs on a national or global scale.

Our category experience includes healthcare, consumer products, technology and telecommunications; home furnishings and do-it-yourself products and services; financial and legal services; food and restaurants, and several business-to-business vertical markets.

Most importantly, we take a results-oriented, rather than a process-based approach to public relations. Our procedures are streamlined to minimize cost and maximize value, without sacrificing quality or results. That’s why the majority of our clients have been with us for years.

So come and “set a spell” -- we’ll show you what they mean by big!
