Our Strategy – Data Driven B2C Outreach

Our content strategy is based on years of effective PR work that has helped our clients and our portfolio companies reach consistent annual double digital growth.

We focus on technical informational asymmetry. We make complicated topics easy to understand.

Publishers and lay readers often don’t know what is going on behind the scenes in technology. This is especially true for complex encryption technology.

We publish transparent and easy to understand data which drives more traffic and organic growth.


Leveraging an existing large database of media contacts and influencers we created actionable and data driven content.

Custom outreach is a time intensive process that cannot be automated despite what many people may recommend.

For this particular campaign, our team sent out over 753 custom emails to editors, writers and journalists.

Data-Driven Insights

Leveraging public data sets and academic data is essential to producing the highest quality outreach topics and content.

We cut through the digital marketing noise by focusing only on citable well researched objective information that publishers find easy to share and link to.

The outreach strategy used for this client involved large amounts of research pertaining to open source SEO security vulnerabilities, devops security and a host of legal issues that plague the VPN industry.

We leveraged expert interviews and key insights from experts around the world to create unique editorial content that naturally promoted our client’s products and services.

Creating value by educating the largest audience possible and complex topics is a win-win solution for both publishers and clients looking for PR mentions.
