San Francisco + Public Relations

About Us

From Walnut Creek to Silicon Valley, we’re committed to San Francisco Public Relations

San Francisco is one of the most competitive business environments on the planet. It's a peninsula filled with tech prodigies, VC veterans, and an army of talented founders looking to make a name for themselves in tech's ground zero. To stand out in that crowd requires a team of PR professionals who not only understand San Francisco and Silicon Valley media, they were created in that crucible and have the skills and expertise that can only come from being SF-bred.

At TOP, we got our start in SF and we've grown immensely since then. We're a fully integrated PR shop that understands the fundamentals needed to craft and broadcast the perfect message at the perfect time. We're also innovators in our own right, looking to develop the world's first truly 21st century public relations agency. We use all of the latest tools, tactics, and best practices (many of which we designed ourselves) to shine in the city by the bay.

Our Approach

Concrete strategies and data-based local approach

It's no surprise that for a business to succeed in Silicon Valley, it needs to be data-driven. We're just that, but more. We are a PR agency with our own in-house data department, constantly gathering public sentiment and turning them into incredible messages that place our clients as the leaders in the space. We use these analytical capabilities to not just follow the news, but to create it. 

This approach means we are never at a loss for news. Our insights and approaches ensure that everything we pitch is targeted and newsworthy, greatly increasing the likelihood of it being picked up by the media. This is something no other PR agency can claim. Our pitches get picked up at greater rates than our competitors which means your brand can scale at a rate greater than your competitors.

How We Work

Blueprints + Creativity = Scalable PR

If you're going to invent the PR agency of the future, you're going to need a system. Ours is built around the idea of structure creativity. Essentially, we've analyzed our in-house data around messaging success rates, combined it with our team's public relations expertise, and teased out insights into what really made those messages resonate. Some worked because they had localized geographical data, others worked because we could leverage the founder's story, or dispel a commonly held myth. Sometimes we ask big questions, and other times we offer big, surprising data points. 

Then we created a blueprint system that allows for flexible creativity of messaging in a package that is designed to convert.
