Social Media Hired GunsToday’s global marketplace demands a street-smart, trend-setting, technologically advanced, social-savvy PR ground game – and we’re the muscle you want on your team when it is time to get down to business.
Nimble and FlexibleOur teams scale to the size and scope of each project and have earned a distinct reputation for our ability to mobilize quickly, work efficiently with other technical moving parts and project partners, and adapt to real-time challenges.
We Like the Feel of Pen and PaperOur communications philosophy is timeless, but our methodology is leading edge. While we live in the digital world, some of our best ideas are born from anything from a sketch pad to a shameless series of sticky notes…and most of us still love the feel of a hardback book.
We're Digital Natives (pun intended)Some of us were using Facebook when we were in college and it was still a closed network. We aren’t “adopters” of technology – most of us grew up with it. What that means for our clients – and you – is that while many PR firms and freelancers are still losing time trying to play catch-up with technology and current digital communications methodology, we’ve already adopted, adapted, and engaged.
We Actually Hate Terms Like Out-Of-The-BoxWe didn’t come with a box. We are a collective of creatives with the right balance of business acumen and visionary forethought…and we never blink. Ever.
We Bet We Know Why You Stopped By TodayMost of our fans, colleagues, and trade associates are surprised to learn that since our founding on April 1, 2009 we have never invested one penny on advertising in any form. Our roster of past and current clients were hustled the way we prefer: word of mouth from other satisfied clients.
“Ken conducted several master-class social media campaign strategy workshops and debrief sessions for Women Innovate Mobile
and Levo League
staff and interns. Eye-opening sessions on the nuances and enormous complexities of the social business world – growing up on Facebook and being social media savvy is not sufficient when the focus is brand growth or new product launch. Women Innovate Mobile directly benefited from Ken’s deep knowledge and expertise…”Kelly Hoey
