Testimonials

Barokas Public Relations has been a great partner for Clearwell and has played a critical role in our success. Kudos on a great job over the last 5+ years, beginning with our company launch through to our acquisition.

Barokas Public Relations works as advertised - they get results - and have a keen understanding of what it takes to get the job done. The increasing volume of coverage we have achieved over the years is a testament to their work. We value the firm's strategic counsel and partnership in helping Zenprise become the leader in mobile device management, and recommend them to other companies who are looking for an aggressive, smart agency with a "can do" attitude.

PR is often misunderstood in the tech industry as crafting quality press releases. In my experience, PR is an essential component to building and managing a quality brand. I've worked with some large and famous firms, but none have ever come close to the level of commitment, skill, and creative excellence that I've come to expect from team Barokas. This firm is genius at marketing, promotion, and economically leveraging the media. For more than a decade and across several successful ventures, I have been fortunate to have BPR as a partner.

It takes a combination of strategic smarts and heads down effort to succeed in public relations, and nobody combines the two better than Barokas Public Relations. The agency's work with Cascadia Capital has helped propel us into the spotlight as one of the nation's leading boutique investment banks.

Barokas Public Relations hit the ground running and placed positive articles right from the start. In addition to being results-focused, their deep understanding of the eDiscovery market played an integral role in developing our messaging and establishing awareness for the Daegis brand at a critical time. They consistently went the extra mile to serve us, and I can't think of a better qualified group of PR professionals to work with.

After experiencing the outstanding results secured by BPR during our acquisition of Hubspan, we felt compelled to extend that partnership to Liaison. Their knowledge of enterprise technology, and PR and AR savvy has really helped boost our awareness in the analyst community and increase our share of voice in the media. Over the past few years, we’ve received nothing less than outstanding work from BPR and they continue to exceed our expectations on multiple fronts.

Since working with the BPR team, we've secured top tier media coverage that far exceeds our competitors. BPR is a rare-breed, able to understand and articulate complex technologies in a creative way that delivers results. Highly personable and professional, they possesses the innate ability to gain the trust of those around them, including journalists, analysts and clients. I highly recommend their services.

Barokas Public Relations has been relentless in raising Apptio's profile and driving meaningful and consistent coverage. The firm's tech savvy and 'squeaky wheel' approach to PR, combined with their energy and enthusiasm, is paying off in spades for Apptio as we work to build a new market category.

I've worked with Barokas since 1999. They kick ass. A much better solution than Edelman, Weber, or any of the other mega agencies.

For six years Barokas PR worked passionately on the Concur business. We relied on Howie and his team to help us promote and own the T&E category. Barokas consistently delivered.

The work Barokas PR did for our recent launch was fantastic. A 10 on a scale of 1 to 10. The top-tier coverage we received was consistent with our messaging. We couldn't have asked for more. Barokas is a welcome addition to the Bay Area PR scene.

Small focused teams can run circles around those with many more people and much larger marketing budgets. Barokas PR helps us sharpen and communicate our message with impressive awareness results in a market with lots of noise.

BPR provides the right mix of senior PR counsel coupled with a healthy dose of aggressiveness that has earned us tier-1 results in AdAge, AdWeek, Fast Company, Forbes, Wall Street Journal and others. Strategic communications is essential to a brand's success, and the BPR team has consistently demonstrated their PR prowess for our brand and leadership team on multiple fronts. Their professionalism and partnership mentality dispels the myth that PR firms have to be based in the Bay Area to do great work.

A week ago, I relived my college days at Washington State University – although, instead of a dorm I stayed in a hotel.  And rather than going to the main strip of college bars, my friend and I went to the “grownup” bar in town to grab a drink after dinner since she works for [Read More]
