How We Do It

Our Strategy

A2B Strategies was formed out of a common interest to alter the way our clients approach both public relations and business. With a thorough understanding of the professional sports, entertainment and nonprofit industries, A2B Strategies began developing intentional communications, marketing and business strategies for our clients, where each area works with the others to advance our clients’ image and brands.

We hold ourselves to the highest ethical and professional standards and are known among our peers for our ability to move our clients’ image and brands from point A to point B.

“A2B has been dynamic is assisting me with many entities of my marketing and branding focuses – From setting up our social media channels, suggesting targeted posts and even making sure we answer questions from our followers in a timely manner – to making sure our website and YouTube channels are up to date and utilizing the most recent technology, keywords, and algorithms. In a world of ever-changing media, I need a company like A2B to keep me informed and on top of what I can offer my clients and followers to ensure our radio show, YouTube channel, and even my events are on point. Ashleigh is also very dynamic in many assets of public relations and helping me run events for high-wealth individuals and celebrities in a professional and mature manner. If you need detail, call A2B.”

Angie Skinner, CEO and Founder of Accelerated Communication Solutions

“I think of A2B Strategies as an extension of my company. A2B is a trusted and reliable resource, offering a diverse range of assets from which to choose. Initially, we increased our use of A2B’s services because of their ability to consistently write excellent public relations materials and develop concise copy that hit the mark for strategically important media releases. However, it was A2B’s ability to quickly understand and to be insightful and to intuitively understand the strategic scope of things that became an even more valuable service to our brand research and brand positioning work.”

“Ashleigh, with A2B, brought a crisp and modern look to our corporate platform. Her eye for detail transformed our simple ideas into a custom and professional image.”

“A2B has integrated into Hope For The Warriors so professionally, most are not aware they are an outside firm. This has allowed Ashleigh and her team to develop and execute innovative strategies seamlessly, elevating our exposure to both our donor and mission bases. What started as a single project has quickly grown to an overall organizational effort from A2B and we are thrilled with the results.”

Robin Kelleher, President & CEO of Hope for the Warriors

“We at Sam Bass ArtWorks have been so very pleased with the outstanding job that A2B Strategies has done for us over the years. They are dependable, reliable and extremely professional. The A2B team, particularly Ashleigh Aungst, does a great job in communicating the thoughts and ideas that we wish to share with our business partners and customers each and every time. We would highly recommend A2B Strategies.”

 “A2B has made a profound impact on Parella Motorsports Holdings. They have stepped in to manage customer and fan engagement, app management, and have driven an incredible amount of traffic to our social media platforms. It’s hard to imagine running PMH without A2B’s input and guidance.”

Tony Parella, CEO of Parella Motorsports Holdings

“Ashleigh started managing my PR in the truck series for an independent team in 2010. I was so impressed with her ability to manage my needs and direct me toward quality interviews that my wife and I hired her company to continue managing our brand even after retirement in NASCAR. We have continued to stay in the news via global press, as well as all aspects of social media. I appreciate her candor and creativity to continue to reach my fans and partners in new ways and keep me relevant in motorsports worldwide.”

Mike Skinner, former NASCAR Truck Series Champion

“Ashleigh and her team were indispensable in assisting us with our PR and marketing initiatives. Caregility was a new sponsor in the world of NASCAR and without the support of A2B Strategies, I don’t think we would have been able to leverage our investment as much as we did. I highly recommend their services to anyone looking for a knowledgeable, professional team of PR and marketing experts.”

Kelly McDermott, Senior Vice President of Marketing at Caregility

“When it comes to public relations there are loads of people that talk a good game, but Ashleigh Aungst and A2B Strategies helps you make it happen. They have enabled me, coached me and given me the confidence to share my personal and professional life on social media. With their guidance, I’ve learned how to properly use social media to not only engage with fans, but to drive business results and relationships, too.”
