Toronto’s Top PR Agency

Grey Smoke Media is an amalgamation of media insiders who were once producers, reporters, editors and media managers across Canada. Based in Toronto, we were formed as an answer to everything that has gone awry with today’s PR and Media Buying agencies. We’re different from any other media agency, and we think that’s a good thing. This new game of media comes with an entirely different rule book.

GO TO EXPERTS

Our team knows media so well that we have been called on to contribute to over 50 media outlets including CTV, Global, Sirius XM and The Globe and Mail.

HIGH RETENTION, FOOLPROOF PLANS

Our media marketing methodologies translate across multiple industries. This means we can service everyone from high-powered law firms, top-tier politicians or even disruptive tech platforms.

The NEW PR AGENCY

Most agencies force a client to hire multiple companies to manage their marketing mix. Often, these agencies fail to communicate. Your PR agency must work alongside your media buyers and digital pros to maximize impact. Grey Smoke is the confluence of these three tiers and a rejection of any stale service still being peddled to companies.

Our Exclusive Services

Our media and PR tactics are unlike anything our competitors will present to you and that’s why they work. Our methods are inimitable and produce unparalleled results for our clients

bussines-01

Media Buying

The best media buyers don’t get chummy with sales executives. This industry is rife with kickbacks and quid pro quo. We negotiate tough and don’t take the 15% gross that has become the media standard. We even institute fee ceilings and flat rates and leverage buys into free PR, a tactic we have not seem emulated elsewhere.

Public Relations

We know the media cycle and plan accordingly. Timing, messaging and release dates are crucial for maximum impact. We’re not content with one media launch and then a drop off so we plan for multiple cycles.  Best of all, our insider media connections allow for direct pitching instead of ending up in a spam box, like our competitors.

Digital PR

What has been traditionally referred to as the “media” has gone through a seismic shift over the past 5 years. While traditional media has shifted online, we have also seen the birth of the influencers. These individuals have amassed highly engaged, micro-targeted followings that can run in numbers that blow traditional mediums out of the water.
