THEPRBAR inc. is an online coaching platform and resource hub built to help motivated entrepreneurs and professionals expand their impact, influence, and revenue through relationship-driven marketing and PR.
PR is about so much more than just press.
It’s so much more than just the “professional maintenance of a favorable public image”.
It’s so much more than just establishing “authority.”
IT’S. SO. MUCH. MORE.
PR focuses on how we interact with the public.
It focuses on how we connect with our customers.
How we foster relationships within our industries.
How we engage within our own communities, and within new communities.
How we collaborate with the media – traditional and emerging.
How we lead and relate to our teams (from the bottom to the top.)
PR, as defined here at THEPRBAR, “is how we cultivate opportunities through strategic and authentic relationship building and maintenance.”
EVERYONE Needs PR – It’s just a matter of “what type”.

Meet THEPRBAR Founder
And Your Organic Growth & PR Coach, Lexie Smith
I founded THEPRBAR inc. for a multitude of reasons, but one I want to highlight right now is because I was super tired of seeing cookie-cutter one-size-fits-all marketing offerings and solutions for growth.
I had been doing, teaching, and speaking on organic marketing and PR for more than 10 years (at the time) and had developed a very strong track record of helping companies – of all shapes, sizes, and industries – see massive success organically (without ad spend). What I realized is that everyone’s version of success varies to some degree and thus their path to accomplish such, always looked a bit different.
To really achieve substantial financial success and impact, it was necessary to develop a customized marketing and PR strategy.
Fast-forward to today, and that is exactly what I work 1:1 with my clients to achieve.
