EVERY STARTUP HAS A STORY
Grow your brand by sharing it.
With a deep understanding of the startup ecosystem, Beantown Media Ventures (BMV) is a digital marketing agency that leverages its expertise in public relations, content marketing, social media, and influencer engagement to help technology companies and challenger brands grow efficiently. Rooted in a belief that startups must become media companies on their growth journey, we’ve partnered with some of the world’s most innovative companies over the last decade to bring their products to market and strategically scale. We ensure your startup story gets heard to drive leads, accelerate growth, and increase valuations.
PR can be a powerful tool for startup brands. With BMV’s track record of demystifying complex technologies for broader audiences, proven narrative development framework, and well-established media relationships across Silicon Valley, New York, and across the world, that power is exponentially increased. Our team knows what will get you the most visibility and how to get you there.
Looking for content marketing for startups? Prove your value to customers with data-driven, engaging and expertly crafted content. Our team is adept at producing and distributing thought leadership narratives, whitepapers, eBooks, surveys, blog posts, newsletter copy, graphics and short-form videos that build awareness, improve SEO and drive inbound leads for your startup.
Regardless of your target market, one of the best ways 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 relevant to your startup so they can tell your story and turn their followers into your customers.
Social media conversations happen around the clock, with or without your brand. 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 ensure you are part of these conversations whenever and wherever they occur.
Don’t have the budget for a marketing agency for your bootstrapped or pre-seed-stage startup? Implementing a cost-effective media and influencer relations campaign with no long-term agency commitment and only a single payment is possible. BMV’s DIY package is designed for early-stage startup teams like yours to let you do PR yourself.
Retain the team at BMV to ensure your company can produce the content needed to get into the early conversations it needs to be in! The Beta package is ideal for seed-stage startups that have found product-market fit and may be preparing to announce a funding round or launch their first product. It cost-effectively provides strategic messaging, content production, and PR support to maximize your entry into the market.
Series A to Series B stage startups will receive a strategic mix of PR, content marketing, and social media support to help you evolve your narrative, scale, and drive leads. Whether distributing data stories and research through the press, managing analyst relations campaigns, or engaging influencers on social media, we increase brand awareness for your startup.
Help your later-stage startup towards a public offering or rekindle customers’ love with a more efficient marketing agency. Many large tech brands have moved away from their more expensive and larger agencies to reap the savings benefits of BMV’s Growth package. It strategically mixes PR, content marketing, and paid social and influencer relations cost-effectively to help your company define and lead new market categories.
"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 Acquired by Pindrop
