What is startup PR?

Startup PR helps startup companies get attention for their products or services using tactics like media relations and social media. It is differentiated from advertising in that the tactics employed are generally "earned" - meaning that the companies do not pay an advertising platform directly for the exposure.

Our Approach

For startups, it's never a slow news day

CCI's startup-focused PR team follows a strategic approach that centers on three key stages: strategize, implement, and optimize.

During the strategy phase, we closely collaborate with our clients to comprehend their goals, media preferences, and requirements. Based on this, we develop a tailored PR strategy that aligns with their objectives, which may involve conducting market research, competitive analysis, and evaluating past media coverage.

In the implementation phase, we focus on explosive execution. We launch our PR strategy across various media channels, leveraging our experienced professionals' skills and expertise for maximum impact on brand reputation, awareness, and SEO.

Once we've launched, we continually monitor, measure, and optimize our PR campaigns to ensure they deliver the desired results. By analyzing data and making necessary adjustments, we help our clients achieve their PR goals and drive growth for their startup.

This process is repeated as often as needed to keep our tactics aligned with the clients' shifting priorities.
