Publicom has been a successful business since 1979. And, we believe we owe our longevity to an unwavering commitment to integrity and doing the right thing.
To us, operating with integrity means more than always going the extra mile for our clients. We think it means being good citizens, too. And to give back, we've been known to work like dogs for the greater good. In fact, we invented our own 24-hour, 'round the clock charity event: Pro Bono Publico!, which in Latin means "for the greater good." Pro Bono Publico! is a 24-hour, nonstop marathon, where we provide our services to select nonprofit organizations for free. Collectively during the past four events, we provided nearly a half a million dollars in free services. That's right. No cost. Happy clients have walked away with TV ads, radio commercials, print ads, outdoor boards, marketing plans, logo designs, PR and social media strategies, and more. You name it. If it has to do with marketing communications, we've done it. From start to finish in 24 hours, pro bono (with a little help from our valued vendors and generous freelance friends.)
