about WordPop

Does your external brand match your internal brand? There’s a good chance you are on this page because you’ve evolved. You’re better at what you do and more excited than ever to deliver your service to others. But…your external brand just isn’t telling the same story.

We help professional service providers and property professionals like you to increase your visibility while doubling your clarity and confidence along the way. Whether you’re launching something new, repositioning or expanding your business, or reigniting your founder spark, there is a way you can show up brighter. Our “whole brand” approach to PR ensures that your messaging, content, and words reflect what your company is truly capable of today.

At the helm of your PR effort is April Enriquez, an award-winning public relations & brand messaging expert, and group fitness instructor.

April is ready to help you move your message out of your head and into the hearts and minds of your customers. She sets realistic expectations and provides you with a plan and anticipated costs before a project starts. P.S. – Her visibility workouts and unshakeable playlists are optional but highly suggested.

Here are a few honors the joy-filled toddler mom and cold brew-smoothie enthusiast has earned
