"After raising our Series A round we aimed to rapidly scale Open Listings awareness with prospective homebuyers both nationally and in key local markets. BMV was instrumental in assisting us with this effort by developing and executing on a content marketing plan to serve prospective leads engaging branded content, while driving mainstream media coverage with the likes of Fast Company, Refinery29, Cheddar and CNBC."Judd Schoenholtz, CEO of Open ListingsYC-backed Startup Acquired By Opendoor
"I’ve worked with several PR and marketing firms over the years, and they have one thing in common: the first months of working together is a mix of buzz, energy, and excitement. But inevitably, the momentum fades, and excuses replace ideas. Years into our relationship, BMV continues to break through the noise and deliver results. They take the time to understand how we work as a business and coordinate our resources effectively to develop realistic timelines that tactfully guide our content and media strategies. You can pick anyone to distribute press releases or pitch reporters. With BMV, you get a team that cares about continually driving growth for your company."Sam Espinosa, SVP of Sales & Marketing at Next Caller, A Pindrop® CompanyYC-backed Fraud Detection Startup
"The team at BMV is extremely agile, responsive and creative yet thorough and process-driven.
