Obsidian is the dark natural glass that forms when molten lava meets water and is rapidly cooled. This is what strategic public relations can do for your company — it tempers fires and gives you a solid, impenetrable foundation in an ever-fluid business environment. Known as The Great Stabilizer, Obsidian the mineral is widely regarded for its mystical power of insight. And so is Obsidian the firm. Based in Memphis, Tennessee, Obsidian is known as the go-to firm for companies and not-for-profit organizations alike.
For far too long, public relations has been the invisible and mysterious cousin to advertising and marketing. But, it’s really easy when you think about it. When an organization connects to the people it cares about, that’s PR. When your story is told (in whatever lovely and purposeful fashion), that’s PR. Pure and simple.Learn more about us

For this month’s staff feature, we put our fearless owner in the spotlight to find out what makes her tick!Learn more about Courtney.
Sky Zone Lafayette engaged Obsidian to support its grand opening in Acadiana in early 2015. Through strategic media relations efforts – including distribution of news releases, direct pitching and media-specific events – our team attracted coverage by all three local TV news stations, including a live morning show broadcast with KATC’s Good Morning Acadiana, along with coverage on local radio stations, magazines and other print outlets. As a result, Sky Zone Lafayette’s first month in business outperformed all other Sky Zone locations across the U.S., regardless of size.Want similar results?
