California PR counselor Meredith Munger has launched Munger & Co. with a two-minute video that details her formula for tackling the “fragmented” world of PR, advertising, and social media.

The video is below and on this website in the “Find the Right PR Firm” section as well as on the Munger website at

Munger, who has been in a number of her own businesses as well as working for Burson-Marsteller, Hill & Knowlton and Fleishman-Hillard, says clients have to engage mass audiences but make each member of that audience feel “like it’s one-on-one.”

Clients must quickly identify any wasteful elements of their programs by measuring the business results of marketing efforts, she says. “There’s no point in spending time and effort on a Facebook account if it doesn’t generate customers,” she adds.

Customers must be able to have “conversations” with clients “everywhere they go,” she says.

Munger & Co. is at 15068 Creek Hills rd., El Cajon, CA 92021.

Clients are in healthcare, tech and consumer products and include imortgage,,, RunEC and Southern Arizona News Examiner.
