1 Thought from the Team

Having a quiet month with no new launches? Now’s not the time to reduce your PR — in fact, it’s a good time to put out news so you’re not fighting with the rest of the industry noise. Don’t confuse PR with marketing: while marketing is colorful, loud and noisy, PR is a quiet and steady drumbeat. Give interviews about your founders and your company vision. Show investors that you’re optimistic. Then when things are looking up again, you’ll already be way ahead of the competition by having built up a great public image.
