The journey to being known doesn’t have to be so chaotic.

You want to grow your brand, so you need to increase your audience and improve your influence, and becoming a published author or launching a podcast can help you do that.

Brand Management & PR Agency

Founded by Chrissy Bernal, Be a Better Brand is a brand management and PR agency that uses proven marketing frameworks and strategic public relations to help brands grow with intention and less stress.

After suddenly ending up in the global spotlight for her unique identical twins, Chrissy was savvy enough to know she needed to create and grow their brands quickly. After receiving really bad advice that cost time and thousands of dollars, she decided to dive into learning what she really needed to do to help their brands gain momentum and be taken seriously.

Because she doesn’t want other authors, podcasters, and entrepreneurs to feel frustrated and stuck as she did, she combined what she learned from her formal education with the real-world knowledge gained from her family’s growth toward global brand awareness so she could help other brands grow with intention and less stress.

She and her team help authors, podcasters, and entrepreneurs integrate branding, messaging, and publicity so they clearly communicate their stories, increase their influence, and reduce the chaos experienced in the journey of being known.

Before Pure Rhodes hired Chrissy Bernal, we were all over the place and unfocused with our branding. We did not know who we wanted to be in the industry or who our customer base was. Then we hired Chrissy for a coaching/consulting program, and we evolved into who we are today. Now Pure Rhodes is a growing, vibrant, and profitable company.

Bottom line? Hiring Chrissy was the smartest thing I’ve done relative to being a new author. I’ve gained so many more contacts for outreach in service of the caregivers who need/want/crave my message of hope and care for the family caregivers. I can’t imagine how FLAT my book would have landed and the ongoing reach I’d be missing online and via podcasts and feature articles if I had not hired her. She is an expert in her field and has saved me time and money.

"Chrissy Bernal is the best! When I started my podcast "Here's What We Know," I had a vision but no practical reality of how to make it happen. Thankfully, Chrissy did! She helped me organize everything that needed to happen, create a launch date for me, and keep me focused on all the moving parts. Then you throw in the fact that she's one of the nicest and kindest humans out there, and you will realize she's the total package. She is like my secret weapon, but I guess the word is getting out! I love being able to keep my attention on what I do best, which is creating content, and having Chrissy handle what she does best, which honestly is kind of everything. Chrissy will soon become your secret weapon, too!"
