We focus on Young Companies
FireStart takes the pain out of your marketing challenges for startups and growth-stage companies and by providing highly specialized, results-based, affordable marketing expertise when you need it.
The marketing programs we build are result-based, analytics driven and tightly integrated to your company goals. We provide a wide variety of marketing solutions from complete digital marketing strategy and tactics, differentiated value propositions, content development and marketing execution, social media amplification, user acquisition/growth campaigns, business plans and investor preparation
Why We’re Different
We’ve worked in major corporations and have been co-founders of startups. We understand the that successful marketing and branding—especially for young companies—can be overwhelming if it’s not your forte. Maybe you need a go-to-market launch plan, a jumpstart to accelerate existing programs, or an investor pitch. We can also tap into our talented network of marketing specialists, web designers and professional writers to help with special projects.
How We Do It
We start by evaluating your situation and collaborating with you to crystalize your goals, set priorities and identify needs. We can help with the bigger picture challenges like business strategy and product planning. We can hit the ground running as your as-needed startup marketing team for a longer term partnership. Or, we can work by individual project like writing business plans, helping you build or refresh your website, or activating your social media strategy.
We're agile and good at starting fires
We apply our unique startup and corporate experience to help shape your company's brilliant ideas into marketable products or services. Our industry experience spans B2B and B2C technology and consumer companies with a strong emphasis on launch and early-stage strategy, roadmapping, content development and marketing, target audience development and user acquisition growth. We know that young companies not only need smart strategies and tactics to get to market, they also need business and market-savvy coaches who are committed to helping them reach their goals.
We're Entrepreneurs Too
We’re an entrepreneurial team of marketing experts who specialize in working with startup, growth-stage and enterprise level companies.
We're Willing to Take Risks
Our philosophy and approach is different than most. We're a small business ourselves, so we share your entrepreneurial spirit and willingness to go the extra mile and take risks.
Network of Startup Resources
We also work with a network of vetted marketing resources in the areas of content development, graphic design, website development, and print collateral.
Business and Market-Savvy Coaching
We know that young companies not only need smart strategies and tactics to get to market, they also need business and market-savvy coaches who are committed to helping them reach their goals.
We'd love to learn more about your marketing challenges and share some ideas through a free strategy session.
