Great Startup PR firms? Anyone have a recommendation for a good PR firm?

We're looking for someone with experience in B2C mobile/web app space and really only looking for them to help with traditional PR (media outreach), not all the add ons some firms sell.  Budget is pretty flexible, since we're lucky enough to have funding.

Should be based in the US, or have strong US relationships.  Really appreciate your help or your push in the right direction.  It seems almost impossible to find recommendations for PR online.

Happy to share my pr contacts - feel free to ping me directly. I have a person I use and like him, and have done general research as well.

We use Ed from EZ PR. He has a lot of relationships in the industry, and has been crushing it for our PR. More than happy to make an intro if you'd like. Just shoot me a note.

Hi Carolyn, My company is not a PR firm (in the traditional sense), but we do help small to mid sized companies with their messaging. We're a story-telling agency. Our mandate is to help "mature startups" create and deliver high quality branded content. You can check out some work samples at . If you're looking specifically for impressions in paid media, perhaps you do want to talk to a traditional PR firm. Don't have r'ships with any of those, but I do know a very good marketer who does social outreach specifically. Perhaps you'd want to chat w. her? At any rate, PR is a somewhat flexible term these days so figured I'd reach out. Let me know if you'd like to discuss more. Best of luck! VH
