“As a former PR professional, I can be a critical client, but partnering with Red Fan was one of the best decisions I made when launching Ben Milam Whiskey and Distillery. The team is passionate, experienced and truly invested in my success. Working with a very lean start-up is much different than working with an existing, established business. Red Fan is patient, understanding and flexible which was extremely important in my first few months as a brand-new business. They listened to my goals and went beyond my expectations when launching Ben Milam in Texas. I can testify to the effectiveness of their PR and social media efforts, and I know they have played a tremendous role in Ben Milam’s upward sales trajectory which we happily celebrate monthly. Our product is flying off the shelves.”
