Advocacy Ink describes itself as a "full-service firm offering public relations, communications, Washington representation and political consulting to a broad range of clients."[1]

"Advocacy Ink will get your issue the ink you need to win - by the column inch and over the airwaves," it states on its website.[2] (Note Advocacy Ink the PR firm described on this page is not to be confused with Advocacy Ink the non-profit group which is an arm of DeMilo Production which does advocacy on child Labor, homelessness and justice issues).

Writing for Alternet Michael Ordoña referred to Advocacy Ink as a Republican public relations firm. Ina story on pro-Kerry comic books, Audrey Mullen, a partner Advocacy Ink stated that "I don't know anyone on the right who has the spare time to indulge in [comic books], but maybe this is how Democrats reach their base. We, on the other hand, have National Review."[3]
