"Publicity, publicity, publicity is the greatest moral factor and force."

~Joseph Pulitzer






Headed up by entertainment/media veteran, Claire Ratliff, the Laughing Penguin was conceived to meet the very unique needs of small business, independent record labels, producers and artists. "When it was time to hang out my shingle, I drew on my own experience as an independent artist and entrepreneur, as well as a marketer. I know how important it is to find professional, affordable promotion services. Ours is a versatile firm that will really go to bat for you with your budget in mind."

A former marketer with Columbia Pictures of Burbank, CA, Ratliff also enjoyed stints as a PR consultant, and corporate marketing executive in addition to performing and songwriting. She's held posts in print media, graphic design, radio/video production, event planning and as a television host. Her articles have appeared in trade journals and she is a dynamic speaker on the topic of PR and marketing.

The Laughing Penguin is a team of professionals that provides first-rate publicity and marketing/promotional services including media relations, graphic design, photography, and copy writing. The Laughing Penguin delivers for its clients some of the top media outlets in the country, as pictured here. We’re dedicated to a level of service that usually comes with a much higher price tag; all with an electric energy that keeps the penguin laughing!
