Blink Relations, LLC, Katherine Fleischman BlinkPR: Lies and Empty Promises HALLANDALE Florida
I own a credible entertainment marketing agency that handles major Hollywood films, television shows, and the like. We referred a corporate technology client to Katherine Fleischman at Blink Relations (Blink PR's president), who confidently and repeatedly promised that within 30 days she would deliver a specific type of public relations promotion on a national talk show for our client.
Our stipulations were specifically stated on contract, along with a list of 5 target talk shows, and signed by both parties - and we made a payment to Blink PR. During the first 2 weeks, Katherine began stating how it's difficult to engage such a task within 30 days. We decided in the name of progression - to help Katherine by assisting in creating pitch ideas and angles. At the end of 30 days, still no results.
In month 2, Katherine delivered on 2 talk show options she said met our stipulations on contract - but after later investigation, we realized she was blatantly lying about the shows' viability and demographic information. During month 2, Katherine told us she wasn't succeeding because she needed a video reel for our client. This was NEVER mentioned prior to, and even though her contract read that BlinkPR would create videos/media needed for pitching - we had the client pay an additional amount to create a video, as Katherine would not create it herself.
Upon receiving the video, Katherine had the nerve to try and leverage the technology client - to try and garner another of our clients, stating "I can continue working for (tech client), but you have to move forward and let us sign (new client)". Beyond this dirty move - her proposal for the new client was careless and bogus. The new client is an American pop music artist - on her proposal, she listed 330 radio stations - of which numerous stations were repeated 10+ times! She also listed Mariachi and Korean radio stations - things that show gross negligence in her business practices. I've lost a substantial amount of money + a relationship with the technology client because of Katherine/Blink PR, we would definitely not recommend working with her.
A refund of the money invested by my client doesn't repair my company's reputation, which is tarnished because of Katherine's immoral business practices. Only after threatening a lawsuit - did Katherine decide to address our situation, and during negotiations, she committed to 2 separate settlements - then reneged. This is a great description of her business practices: haphazard, immoral, and downright dangerous. We hope this posting teaches her a lesson in right and wrong, and prevents further loss for others,
