How PSN Works

We take the guesswork out of finding guaranteed, prime PSA distribution solutions from both traditional and unconventional media outlets. Many nonprofit organizations and government agencies invest their critical outreach dollars with a communications firm to locate free in-kind and earned media placements. And, in order to ensure a successful campaign outcome, these resources are best invested with a firm that has developed the unique industry relationships, processes and technologies necessary to cost-effectively manage, distribute and promote your PSA campaign.

The PSN team has over 100 years of media and communications experience; we are specialists in nonprofit and government public service campaigns. That’s what we do and we are constantly innovating so we can improve outcomes for our clients in new and cost-effective ways. Over the past decade, PSN has developed strategic relationships across the media industry to ensure that your outreach dollars yield results. Our experienced marketing team offers a mix of new and traditional distribution channels to make sure your campaign will get noticed during all day-parts, not just during remnant overnight slots or otherwise undesirable inventory that could not be sold.

The PSN model is proven and will utilize your resources to secure prime media placement opportunities for your messaging on a guaranteed and measurable basis. Our past performance proves that the results will exceed your campaign objectives and expectations.
