Marketing & Sales Consultant

KRIS Communications (Cordillera Communications)

As a consultant, I partner with Corpus Christi area retailers to maximize their marketing efforts and increase sales through advertising on three media platforms: TV, internet, and mobile. The seven media properties among these platforms are KRIS (NBC), KZTV (CBS), KDF (Independent), KAJA (Telemundo), the CW South Texas, KRISTV.com, and KZTV10.com. I also write and produce TV commercials to be utilized in both this market and markets across Texas. In addition, I provide PR services for my clients by writing and editing news releases, scheduling media appearances and talent interviews, and implementing social media strategies.

**KRIS Communications is the only configuration of 7 multi-media platforms under one sales organization in the nation**
