  • Full-Service PR Campaigns
  • Media Training
  • Dedicated San Francisco Public Relations Specialists
  • Wide experience from San Francisco startups to established Fortune 500 companies

San Francisco is not only a great place to live and visit; it’s a dynamic place to start a company. With an amazing talent pool that is growing every day, your company can choose from the cream of the crop as it grows. But without a public relations presence as epic as you are, attracting top talent and customers can be difficult. Investing in a PR agency that knows the Bay Area is just the strategic advantage you need to thrive.

TOP has worked with Fortune 500 companies to startups and everyone in between. We understand the traps and pitfalls of growing a Bay Area business and how to make sure your company gets all the public attention it needs to grow at a significant pace. We’ve helped new companies become great companies and existing companies become SF juggernauts.

We create news.

Why wait for the next product launch to get your companies story out there? We create our own news using our 27 proprietary story Blueprints — each representing a proven method for generating media interest and press coverage. This allows us to quantify success based on what worked before and what will work again, guaranteed.

We precision target.

We know exactly what outlets the all important VCs are reading and we use the latest tools to put ads in the social media feeds of journalists in Top 100 U.S. markets. By pre-seeding our stories, reporters have already heard of our clients before our first pitch reaches their inbox. 

We A/B test.

SF Tech companies love to test things — and so do we. We write many different versions of a story idea—perhaps 25 different headline variations for a single pitch, test the best ones for each vertical and give each reporter the angle they are most likely to be interested in. 

We think visually.

We know that we have just seconds to catch a journalist’s or a consumer’s attention before they move on to something else. We optimize those seconds by formatting our pitches in a way that draw the eye to the main points and tell our clients’ stories in seconds, while a reporter is waiting for the metro, for instance. 

We work laterally.

While most agencies work sequentially to maximize billable hours, we work on multiple parallel tracks to scale quickly — making us 6X more efficient than a traditional agency. That means we could be going out with a human interest story, and hot new startup angle, and a thought leadership pitch, all at the same time.

Our heart and soul is in San Francisco

Our San Francisco clients...we love them

San Francisco is the west coast’s center of everything. Sure, LA has its highlights, but SF is where culture, finance, and tech come together to make magic happen. In such a powerful city, it takes a lot of work to stand out. Here’s where TOP helps. Our custom, high-return Public Relations campaigns use all of the top strategies to make sure you’re seen. As the top San Francisco PR consultant, we take pride in helping our hometown neighbors succeed. We make sure you achieve and exceed your revenue goals and obtain sustainable growth over time.

We got our start as a boutique pr firm with tech PR and its still at the core of everything we do. Many of Silicon Valley’s top incubators — including Y Combinator, TechStars, 500 Startups, and AngelPad recommend us regularly. We are proud to work with dozens of technology startups funded by some of leading venture capital firms in the world including Sequoia Capital, Andreessen Horowitz, Benchmark Capital, Accel Partners, Greylock Partners, Kleiner Perkins Caufield & Byers, Bessemer Venture Partners, New Enterprise Associates, and many more. We’ve worked with many of the largest CPG companies in the Bay Area and beyond, including Big Heart Pet Brands (Milk-Bone, Meow Mix, Natural Balance), Del Monte Foods (Del Monte, Contadina, S&W), and Harmless Harvest.

Why Hire a San Francisco Public Relations company?

We know the lay of the land, literally. We’re born and bred here in the Bay Area and that level of institutional knowledge cannot be bought. We’ve been around the block more than once and know all the media players and what makes them tick (and click) on our pitches. We combine the best tech that SF has to offer with the innovation of a startup and the experience of an old hand to make a potent SF PR powerhouse.

Local Public Relations For San Francisco Companies

We all want to buy local, and the same goes for your PR agency. Those giant, faceless PR agencies may seem to have all the resources, but there’s no substitute for having a PR company who intimately knows your audience (because they’re among them) and knows how to reach that reporter at the Chronicle you’ve always thought would love your brand.

A PR Agency That Lives In San Francisco

We’re your neighbors. We live in the same neighborhoods, shop at the same stores, care about the same issues, and know all the movers and shakers in a city full of them. You can trust TOP to be your partner as you build your PR portfolio and improve your brand in the Bay Area (and across the country) because we understand this city but most importantly, we understand why you love calling it home. Because we do too.
