We would not be where we are without [Pony Comms]. They’ve been so instrumental; an ultimate game changer and I would hire them 12 times over. Their strategy made our campaign a total blockbuster. They worked diligently to form the kind of long-term relationships that would generate the exact coverage we needed.

Liz Ludwig
Chief Marketing Officer

Alexandra and her team are responsive, adaptive, and above all, committed. They work tirelessly to streamline our messaging and get our goals highlighted in mainstream media. I’ve never seen an agency work like they do. The results speak for themselves.

I just got off a call with the Dan (CEO of Prado) and he is very happy and excited about the impact of the work that you are doing for Prado.  He’s definitely a fan!

18 minutes after the Univison feature, we received nearly 5x the intake forms we usually get in a week!  For our Latinx community who are often buying a home for their families or generations of family members, the impact is huge and life changing.

Great feedback from NASA with a special shout out to @Alexandra Pony
(We did a closeout with NOAA today for MagNet. They spoke highly of the heroX outreach and Alexandra Pony. They had about 600 unique participants and over 1000 submissions. They were very pleased with heroX and DrivenData. My next email will be to Greg at DD.)

Kyla Jeffrey
VP of Customer Success

Wow! Thank you so much for your support. Y’all have no idea how much this helps our program.

Alexandra and her team accomplished what my 40-person comms staff at the United Nations Foundation would normally be able to achieve.

Rick Parnell

PONY Comms far exceeded my expectations. With their endless drive and dedication, we were not only able to expand on our audience reach, but also increase our sales. Their personalized PR strategy and ability to weave in influencers into their PR campaigns helped elevate our brand.

For those fans of Gossip Girl. Forgetting Sarah Marshall. Frozen. Bad Moms, or The Good Place, you can officially get excited. For any folks not familiar with Kristen, she quite a “get” forus and we could not be any more excited. Thanks to Alexandra Pony who helped catch this “big fish”.

Chief Marketing Officer

Phenomenal--It’s not just luck...

Peter Fiekowsky
Founder & Chairman Emeritus re. a feature in Forbes

Way to go @Alexandra Pony The press coverage the past couple of months has been seriously impressive. I know how hard it is to muster that level of interest in folks.

You guys are killing it! You've done such an incredible job, we're just everywhere.”

Alex Romero-Wilson
Sr. Manager, Communications and Brand Marketing

Alexandra - all of your good work continues to pay off!

Look at this agenda — The Economist, Forbes, VICE and CA Live. We are hitting both national and niche markets — we’re exactly where we need to be. Great work again, Pony Comms. It’s been so exciting to see your hard work come to fruition.

Cliff Staton
Head of Government Affairs & Community Relations

Pony Comms is the case study in why a small, dedicated agency is the right strategy. We had a major partner announcement, and this multi-million dollar company brought in their large agency. The contrast was stark: instead of a checked out, (barely) delivering agency, Pony Comms brought extra care, dedication, and expertise – and secured 95% of the coverage.

Cliff Staton
Head of Government Affairs & Community Relations

Our experience with PONY Communications was absolutely fantastic. I’ve never seen so much success in such a short amount of time! Their ability to develop story ideas and media angles to drive brand awareness is unparalleled. Their commitment to ensuring our brand is taken care of and the media are in the know, really shows and sets them apart. Thank you for your work!

Rosanna McDonald
Director of Marketing & Fundraising

You should know that the article got very good engagement and lots of clicks to our shortened URL, much more engagement than the articles, which are often only read in print syndication, usually get.

Gina Sparrow

You better not lose Ally Pony and PONY Communications. She’s one of the best PR people I have ever worked with, and is a huge asset to you. This story would not be happening if it weren’t for her.

How Our PR is Driving Business Leads

Believe it or not, a patient actually came to see me after reading one of these articles about the Eye Institute on MSN.  Media exposure does help. Keep up the good work!

Dr. Kevin Lee

Really strong growth day yesterday (500 utility connections and almost 1,500 signups!) with all the new media running! It's big week this week: PR announcement this morning, hot temps, movie tickets and more media than ever before! We're poised well to start riding this wave!

Alexandra and her team continue to showcase the value and impact of PR. Over the past year, they’ve managed to secure over 1.2K features (188 of which are with top-tier outlets) and as a direct result, we’ve seen a major spike in the number of referrals, number of accounts created, number of people accepting challenges and our combined ROI.
