FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. – Durée & Company, a Fort Lauderdale and Aspen full-service public relations, marketing and special events firm, is pleased to announce that it has added some green to its signature pink color with a new cannabis- and hemp-focused website! An addition to the firm’s original website, DureeAndCompany.com, the cannabis-specific site, CannabisMarketingPR.com, is dedicated to the firm’s continued expansion into the booming cannabis and hemp/CBD industries.
“Our new website allows us to further connect with existing and potential hemp and cannabis clients, and to showcase the comprehensive PR and marketing services we tailor specifically for these markets,” said Durée Ross, the firm’s president and founder.
Ross recognized that the U.S. was on the brink of a “green rush” before the passing of the Farm Bill in 2018 and pursued clients in the cannabis and hemp/CBD industries. Durée & Company’s precedent-setting efforts are paving the way for PR representation in this space, which is continuously growing. The total U.S. CBD market is expected to climb to a $2.1 billion market in consumer sales by the end of 2020, according to Hemp Business Journal; and the U.S. retail marijuana market is predicted to rise as high as $37 billion in sales by 2024, according to Marijuana Business Daily.
“Having entered the cannabis, hemp and CBD markets early on, we know the ins and outs of gaining positive publicity and providing marketing for these industries, and there is no better time than our 20th anniversary to launch our website and continue to expand our practice,” Ross said.
Visitors to the website can learn more about Durée & Company’s comprehensive services, including PR and marketing, crisis prevention, digital and affiliate marketing, and influencer relations. The site also features blogs about the cannabis and hemp/CBD industries, bios of the firm’s team members, colorful images, and much more.
The website itself is a continuation of Durée & Company’s signature branding. Visitors will instantly notice the addition of the color green to the firm’s signature shades of pink.
As the “green rush” continues to flood headlines, Durée & Company keeps a watchful eye on local, regional and national news in order to quickly pivot. The team have been working with full spectrum hemp and CBD brands, processing facilities, trade associations, dispensary owners, farmers, growers, cannabis cultivators, third-party laboratories and other startups.Examples of Durée & Company’s PR and marketing expertise in the cannabis and hemp/CBD industries include:
- Proven relationships with and a knowledge of key players in these industries, including members of the media, influencers and thought leaders; insights developed from the careful monitoring and researching of key expos and leadership conferences.
- An understanding of U.S. Food and Drug Administration guidelines and the ability to effectively share news about cannabis and hemp/CBD products ― a unique attribute in today’s marketplace.
- The knowledge to help companies establish and communicate the need for Certificates of Authenticity (COAs), knowing that products are always under scrutiny.
- The ability to navigate the cannabis and hemp/CBD industries to tell the right stories that attract potential consumers, partners, retailers and investors.
- A focus on the products offered, as well as on the business and the people.
Additionally, Ross sits on the board of directors at The Florida Hemp Council.
