Any recommendations for exceptional digital marketing agencies specializing in working with tech startups... on branding, messaging, positioning, strategy, content, launch? preferably in NYC area, but Silicon Valley agencies are fine as well. Thanks.

Hi Juston, Thanks for reaching out. I just reviewed your website - which is well done, by the way - and it appears that you guys are more of a business/mgmt consultancy rather than a digital marketing agency focusing for startups. Would that be accurate? I ask because I'm really looking for someone or a small team with deep experience in working with tech startups like mine - at a stage way earlier than the companies you seem to work with. I'm just designing and building my product now, I'm 5-6 months from launch, it's a brand new company, it's just me right now - and some designers/developers I've hired to build the MVP, and there is no C-level team... it's just me. I'm not sure this isn't far too early for bluefractal. Is it? Have you worked with tech startups at as early a stage as mine is? Best, Paul Sent from my iPad

These guys are great: butchershopcreative.com. Disclosure, it's run by a friend of mine, but they do a lot of work with New York and Bay Area/Silicon Valley brands

Zebra Partners in Seattle has a lot of experience in the space working with both small companies and large corporations. Perrin Kaplan has done a lot of work with startups in recent years, and was VP Marketing and Corporate Affairs at Nintendo for many years and has lots of connections. http://www.zebrapartners.net/ Hope this helps!

To echo Caleb's good example of full disclosure, the people I recommended at Zebra Partners have also become professional friends through work in the industry.

Hi Paul

I started and ran an agency exactly like you described for several years.  At it's peak it was a 7-figure business serving startups and fortune brands.  Financial armageddon was unkind to us.  Some semblance of it is still here: http://www.singleboundcreative.com/

I left to run product and eventually also marketing for one of my startup clients full-time.  We were acquired.  I'm about to be loose and will be returning to consulting (while I continue to chip away at a side-project of course).  

I'm interested in learning more about what you're looking for, and finding out how I might be of assistance.  

Best,
_A
