Firecracker PR Company Profile
With one goal and one focus, it’s easy to narrowly define Firecracker PR, a Brea, California PR firm. Firecracker PR defines its PR goal in four simple words, “to get you known.” The firm’s one stated focus is to scale awareness of its clients as quickly as possible.
To achieve success in both, they employ a five-step process which they call “Ignites.” It begins with promotion, followed by thought leadership, source filing, and content marketing. By employing Ignite, Firecracker PR says it has helped dozens of unknown companies become well known quickly.
Firecracker PR’s strengths are in raising the awareness of clients within the media to do feature stories and lining up live interviews on television, radio and podcasts. To heighten visibility, the firm also counsels and helps clients apply for and win industry awards, and to increase awareness and brand reputation, Firecracker PR stacks the first page of Google with client stories.
One client who heaped a lot of praise on Firecracker PR is Anthony Gentile, the founder and a partner at 451 Media Group, a New York-based technology-focused intellectual property, development and entertainment firm. Gentile said they had talked with and worked with large and boutique PR firms in the past but what made Firecracker PR stand out was that they delivered what they said they would in “an astonishing tight timeline.”
Another highly-satisfied client was Simulation Studios, a business simulation leadership and development tech company. Its’ EVP of Corporate Learning, William Hall, praised Firecracker PR for landing the company high profile articles in several major publications like Business Insider and Entrepreneur.com, plus a radio interview within just a few months.
