History Smith’s Clients

History Smiths

We love our clients! We work closely with each one to determine the best strategic use of history in their PR, marketing, and community outreach with one goal in mind for everyone involved: Results. Plus, this is very rewarding work, and we think that does matter!

Please contact us to strategize!

Some of the clients listed here were served by Hurd Smith Communications, Harrison Bennett’s creative services company. Many have stayed with us as we shifted our focus into History Smiths; others are new. You will see an interesting mix of Boston area for-profit businesses, nonprofits, and communities.

Thanks for stopping by!

We do love our clients, but we have many more we’ve never met because they’ve purchased our products and had great success. That is so gratifying, and it’s why we’re here!

What we do is a new approach, and you can learn more about it in our FREE special reports and articles.

I’ve posted two testimonials below, and there are many more here.

Please be in touch, and do sign up for our ezine (above) where you will learn “new stuff” every week! Thanks again for visiting!
