Through working with over 500 startups at various stages (crowdfunding, launch, Series A), we have helped companies launch products, rebrand themselves, develop thought leadership campaigns and more. We have found that many of our clients need more than software, and that’s why we have great PR pros to help you develop a PR program.
So, we have assembled a team of experienced PR professionals who work full-time at PressFriendly, to provide a custom PR strategy and continued guidance and support to reach your PR goals. We understand that your needs may evolve, so we have created several options for working with PressFriendly - depending on the time you wish to devote to the efforts (vs. your dedicated PR professional) and your PR budget.
As it turns out, a startup I recently covered used PressFriendly to find me. [...] The whole process was refreshingly free of middlemen.
PressFriendly is offering a middle ground between DIY marketing and expensive PR agencies.
PressFriendly was instrumental in helping us connect with both major publications and industry influencers at a critical point in our early growth. Their expertise in navigating the overwhelming world of startup PR helped set us on a growth trajectory that opened tons of doors for us. Moreover, the placements they earned for us continue to drive strong traffic, great SEO and steady sales. Bottom line: you want them on your team.
The team at Pressfriendly made it happen for us on a budget. The Techcrunch article was only the start. PF drove coverage in majors like Adweek, but also helped in placing our story in the right niche publications to drive extremely high value in- bound leads. I cannot recommend them highly enough, you should sign up now.
"...a tool to help create a coherent story and a process to drive connections with reporters."
"... very useful in helping us articulate our message (even internally) and we were delighted to be connected to reporters who were interested in covering our launch."
