What We Do

At our core, we are message makers and tenacious storytellers. What makes us stand out from the pack is the way we ply our craft. We are thoughtful communicators who create custom public relations programs that power brand awareness. But we don't stop there. Through our content marketing practice, we can turn that brand awareness into measurable demand creation.

Public Relations

Customized programs that turn great stories into brand awareness

Amazing stories start here. But amazing stories alone aren’t enough. Getting them heard is harder than ever. The digital world is noisy and frenetic. Today, anyone with a blog and a Twitter handle is an expert, and news cycles last minutes, not days.

At InkHouse, we take a journalistic approach to telling your story. We believe that the story should dictate the form. We might recommend the tried and true press release, but in other cases, a blog post, infographic, micro-video, or even a cartoon, will carry your story to a wider audience.

We also believe that having news is an important part of PR, but we don’t count on it. We’ll pitch your news and get it covered, but we also know how to create news when there isn’t any. And isn’t that the hardest part? Our PR programs are designed to build brands and drive ongoing interest. Give us your ideas. We’ll turn them into coverage, website traffic, and social media engagement.

And now the compulsory listing of our PR services:
  • Strategy:setting the course
  • Messaging:shaping your story
  • Thought leadership:formulating your point of view
  • Media relations:getting ink
  • Analyst relationsvalidating your approach
  • Content creationcrafting your story in the right form

  • Crisis communications:mitigating and managing issues
  • Media training:helping you get quoted
  • Speaking engagements and awards

Content Marketing

The engine that turns brand awareness into measureable leads

Content marketing transforms brand awareness into demand creation. Audiences have an insatiable appetite for information and entertainment. And their content consumption habits are changing by the day (who knew what Buzzfeed was a year ago?). Our content marketing practice helps our clients turn ideas and content into leads. Here’s how it works:

Content Strategy

Steered by the InkHouse Editorial Guidebook, we outline your strategy – define your target audiences, set the editorial direction set, and crystallize the calendar.

Content Creation

Our team of brand journalists and visual storytellers bring your content marketing strategy to life. From creating “teaser content” to drive initial interest (such as blog posts, videos, infographics and e-newsletters) to “conversion content” complete with forms and landing pages (think e-books, webinars, custom reports), our team creates the content that will compel your audience to action.

Distribution and Analysis

Our social media specialists seed and syndicate your content across your owned media channels, appropriate earned and paid social media channels and targeted blogs and media. With analytics in place, we then measure the impact by examining traffic patterns and lead generation results. Then we continually adjust the strategy for optimal performance.

Visual Communication

Data visualization, graphic design and filmmaking to bring your story to life

The human brain doesn’t have the capacity to take in all the information being thrown at it. We remember about 10 percent of what we read, but more than half of what we see. And we process visuals 60,000 times faster than text. That’s where our in-house team of visual storytellers comes in.

Design

Infographics turn data into shareable stories. Our infographics often gain both viral success through social media and press outlets such as the Wall Street Journal, Huffington Post, USA Today and Mashable. Meanwhile, our website design and interactive media bring your story to life through visual dialogue and user experience. Slideshows, e-books and speaker presentations are other ways we help our clients spread their stories.

Our Expertise

B2B

From venture-backed innovators to established leaders, our experience in B2B is second to none. We’ve helped hundreds of tech companies build market awareness and establish their leadership across a range of sectors, including cloud computing, defense, IT security, mobile, healthcare, manufacturing and more.

B2C

Reaching today’s hyper-connected, over-stimulated consumer is harder than ever. For consumer tech companies your story needs to be bold and needs to hit the consumer over and over again wherever she is – whether reading a favorite magazine, watching a morning show, or checking out her Facebook newsfeed. We’ve helped dozens of B2C companies—from gadget makers to app innovators to apparel companies – reach their target consumers through powerful media coverage and social traction.

Real Estate

The path from drawing board to ribbon cutting is full of twists and turns. Our real estate team’s expertise includes navigating the permitting process and winning over the community, to supporting construction, sales, leasing and deal flow goals. Using a unique combination of aggressive public relations and social content, our real estate practice brings tech-savvy tools and tactics to reach a wide range of audiences and help you seize the cycle.

Professional Services

We know how to turn executives into thought leaders. And for services companies – ranging from venture capitalists to law firms to management consultancies – showcasing your expertise through traditional and social media can position you as the “go-to” resource in your industry. Our thought leadership process helps services firms articulate their point of views in ways that capture the attention of their target audiences and ultimately advance your business goals.

Mission-Focused Organizations

Organizations dedicated to serving humanity often share common handicaps: scarcity of funds, and competition for mindshare among other attention-worthy causes. So our work with non-profits is all about getting outsized results on a limited budget through abundant creativity, passion and know-how. These are the currencies that we invest in your mission to help connect nonprofits with the people who need their services as well as the potential donors who fuel your mission.

Education

Educational institutions serve many constituents. We understand how to create programs that gain visibility for faculty research, that engage existing and incoming students, and that set the tone for the discussions that draw in donors and corporate partners. This often requires operating on multiple rails: seeding thoughtful points of view in the business press, engaging through social media campaigns, producing live events and fueling a memorable content campaign all at once.

Our Roster

Judge us by the company we keep. We represent some of the most exciting companies in the technology, consumer, real estate, healthcare and professional services marketplaces. For these clients, we've launched products, inserted executives' opinions into the national debate, engaged opinionated bloggers, invented news that became tomorrow's headlines, and written speeches heard by thousands.

InkHouse needs creative thinkers who can exceed our clients’ high expectations.
