Developing strategies for our clients is at the root of our value as a B2B SaaS PR agency. We’re consistently digging into our clients’ businesses, our target media and the SaaS industry at large to uncover trends, best practices and creative ideas that help inform our PR campaigns.

We at BLASTmedia call this impact the ‘Four Pillars’ of B2B SaaS PR: investors, employees, partners and customers. Here’s why those pillars are important and how PR impacts each: Read More
Before the rise of technology, it was easier to escape quantitative measurement in PR because there wasn’t really a way to do it. Today, business leaders are demanding hard numbers to prove the worth of PR. Although the measurement, tracking and reporting processes can cause a resounding groan from most PR pros, there are many ways in which this can work in your favor. Understanding your company’s share of voice, or how your efforts are helping the company overall stack up against competitors, is a popular — and insightful — way to convey success. Read More

Citing a decline in print media, an increase in brand partnerships with media and a rise in content marketing, some experts are saying PR is relying too heavily on media relations.
