About US

Clairemont Communications takes a tactics-agnostic approach to devising PR and marketing strategies using both traditional tools such as media relations and event planning and newer tools such as content marketing and social media. The difference? Product sketches that turn into top sellers. Campaigns that move consumers from couches to action. Jump starting a start-up to make it a recognized brand. Upholding the reputation of a tried and true company so shareholders continue to hold a special place in their hearts for it year after year.

In 2013, Pantone made Emerald its color of the year, and Clairemont made The Clairemont House its home.

  • Out of the 23 million small businesses in America, 183 of them were featured in the book, It’s Your Business, written by J.J. Ramberg, the host of MSNBC’s Your Business. Clairemont was one of them.

We specialize in freakouts. Helping you manage yours. Not having our own.

Face it, sometimes freakouts happen. We get it, and we’re here to help. Maybe it’s our magic PR wand. Maybe it’s all the green tea we drink. Maybe those stats about dogs in the workplace making for relaxed workers really are true. Most likely it’s the fact that our team is experienced at staying calm when our clients need our help… especially when they need our help at the drop of a hat. It’s what we love to do.

In 2012, Tangerine Tango was featured as Pantone color of the year, and Clairemont was featured in the book, It's Your Business, written by J.J. Ramberg, the host of MSNBC's Your Business.
