Go-to-market strategy.

Maybe you’re not ready for a full PR push but need the right guidance to avoid missteps and set yourself up for success. Companies that think about the long game even before they’ve begun will come out on top in the end. Or maybe you’re ready to emerge from stealth? We’ve worked with companies small and large to develop not only a plan for PR, but a larger, strategic approach integrated with marketing, to garner the most momentum possible.

  • Company brand story launches, rebrands, product launches
  • Consultation on go-to-market, partnerships, opportunities, distribution, investment & connections

Seed to sale.

With over 20 years working with tech companies from seed-round startup launching out of stealth mode to IPO and everything in between, Caster has helped clients of all sizes navigate the world of launch, acquisition, SPAC, funding, and IPO. But it’s the journey of who you talk to and the media who understand your story will determine who pays attention.

  • Executive media training, fact sheets, backgrounders
  • Collaboration with investment groups, venture firms, incubators to maximize attention

ABCs of M&A.

M+A drives media attention, but it works both ways, too. You can’t be a tech darling if no one knows your name. When you’re planning for a merger or acquisition a lot depends on timing and how to tell your people. We help companies craft the sensitive internal messaging and balance that with the flashy external messaging to create a flawlessly executed timeline of events that create internal buy-in and garner a big bang externally.

  • Internal Communications, Town hall webinars, employee letters, events
  • Executive media training, fact sheets, backgrounders, presentation decks, video scripts
  • Tier one relationships with business media from Forbes to Fortune to Bloomberg to BusinessInsider

Extinguishing Fires.

We’ve seen our fair share of fires – some spread like wildfire, yet others we stamped out before the spark caught. We’ve managed media responses to a worldwide security hack impacting 100 million devices; we’ve helped CEOs train for how to talk through a difficult narrative regarding a company scandal or questionable business decision; we’ve rescued consumer brands that desperately needed to recover from negative reputation and bad product reviews; and we’ve protected brands against competitors trying to light them on fire. Caster has engaged in it all and helped clients come out stronger on the other side. When we start a program we run the issue from every angle assessing the potential pitfalls and land-mines, media trigger points and what the key communication pillars should be. From there we build a plan to move into action if the worst happens. We coach executives on the messaging points and drill into the hard FAQs to expect from the press. We guide teams on how to own up if they were in the wrong, and how to stand up for themselves if they are being attacked. No matter how big the flames are, Caster makes sure the client keeps their cool.
