PR is a special form of content. We'll push for newsworthy press releases related to funding, product launches and so forth. We're not a PR agency, so we won't have the personal contacts with your industry's media leaders, but we'll do our best to get your release into the right hands.
Marketing metrics are critical to understanding what is working and what isn't. We believe data helps find the truth. Every single marketing retainer comes with monthly marketing metrics so you know exactly what is going on.
