No matter who your target market is, the best way to earn credibility is through third-party validation from influencers. Using our BrandCirc platform, we’ll identify and engage the bloggers, social personalities and celebrities that are relevant to your startup so they can tell your story and turn their followers into your customers.

With a steady stream of branded content fueling your social streams and pages, and BMV managing your paid social campaigns to amplify earned media, we make sure that you are part of these conversations, whenever and wherever they are taking place.

"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.
