We are a digital marketing and PR agency

Poor marketing is one of the top 10 reasons startups fail. Startups are in a war for attention from their target audiences as they convert them into customers.

Firebrand Communications is a PR and digital marketing agency in San Francisco. We work with tech startups to win this marketing war.

We are specialists in public relations, demand generation, content marketing and digital marketing. We help startups implement marketing programs that outshine competitors, convert customers, attract employees and create advocates.


Win the attention of your audiences, drive brand recognition, increase adoption and eclipse your competition.

The marketing and public relations agency
for tech startups.

Unlike most PR and marketing firms, Firebrand Communications has a senior team of cross-discipline consultants who bring deep domain expertise to each campaign. This accelerates ramp-up time and eliminates rework for time-pressed startup marketing teams. Firebrand can quickly deploy across PR, content marketing, paid search and SEO programs with best-practice approaches that enhance overall marketing performance. Here’s what makes us different.

Our San Francisco Bay Area team comes from startups, blue chips, PR firms, advertising agencies and journalism and brings startups insights, fresh perspectives and the latest techniques.


There are four elements we believe a successful marketing and public relations agency must bring:

Domain Expertise

A deep understanding of the sector, its history, the technology, trends and issues. This accelerates agency onboarding, eliminates misfires like rewriting copy, and means programs are likely to resonate.

Operational Efficiency

Driving smooth and timely implementation of programs using trusted processes and technologies. This reduces administration and wasted cycles, eliminates nasty surprises and helps the team stay focused.

Marketing Best Practice

An ability to lead marketing programs along the journey of increasing sophistication and returns. This helps the marketing team try new tactics and uplevel results.

The X-factor

The creativity, spark, courage and drive to go beyond textbook programs to deliver unanticipated results. This is what makes campaigns shine.
