Look locally for a list of small PR firms that work with small businesses. There's probably a Chicago directory of PR firms. For the market that you are targeting, there are organizations like the Red Hat club, AARP that you can pitch.

Hi Margaret:
I provide a free, tailor-made service matching companies when they're about to launch with PR firms worldwide. [Transparency: After we go through a lengthy process -- short list, proposals, negotiation of fee, etc. -- I am paid a commission by the firm that wins your business.]
I've been helping companies to launch for the past seven years. One company in particular may be of interest: www.evolence.com Their demographic and yours are identical. After a successful PR campaign in the UK and Europe lasting approximately 16 months, they came to the attention of J&J and were bought by them last year.
In whatever market you're interested in penetrating, I'll do your homework for you and find you the best match for your budget, your goals -- and most importantly, your personality. THAT'S what makes a successful PR relationship really take off.
I don't know if I'm allowed to plug my business in the comments section but if so, following are some word-for-word telephone calls from a few clients.
If this looks good, I look forward to hearing from you. Please drop me a line and let me know when it would be a good time to call.
BTW, I am an American but I'm located in Israel. I'm awake for every time zone in the world. Don't ask!

Hi Margaret:
My face is red. I did my homework backwards. I answered your Ladies Who Launch request and only then went to your site. I'm not certain you're discussing the same product but if so, you can enlarge your demographic to an additional audience.

I used to be a science writer (the Weizmann Institute of Research)and medical writer (Reuters medical Web site). What will garner you additional sales is if you go from cute to credible.

Again, please be in touch and let's see if we can brainstorm a way for you to ratchet up your messaging.
