HOW WE GET IT DONE

flood the zone

Don’t get drowned out. Whether it’s a product launch, a reputation campaign or thought leadership, Lightspeed PR/M has the relationships and expertise to motivate journalists, producers, podcasts and bloggers to make your story the only one that matters.

REACH THEM WHERE THEY LIVE

Don’t rely on clips alone. Social media, influencer engagement, digital advertising and more are integrated into the program so we don't just deliver press clippings - we deliver awareness, authority and action.

MOVE THE NEEDLE

Don't throw money at a PR campaign that leaves you wondering if it was all worth it. We track and report results in real time, and we integrate directly into CRMs like Salesforce so you can track leads all the way through the sales funnel.

KEEP IT SIMPLE

Don’t live in an echo chamber. Our clients live and breathe their technologies - but journalists, influencers and customers might not. Lightspeed PR/M understands the jargon - and uses it to create simple, compelling and actionable messaging that anyone can understand.

  • I have worked with MANY PR firms and people over the years, but never anyone as media savvy and hard working as Ethan.

If you are looking for someone to jump start your PR, Ethan is your man!Scott Jordan, SCOTTeVEST
  • Ethan and the team at Lightspeed really helped put 4C on the map and have been great partners – proactive, creative, dependable and flexible. Highly recommended!Aaron Goldman, 4C Insights
  • Our company engaged Ethan and his team at Lightspeed PR to assist on the product launch for a “prosumer”-oriented software product, tasking them with specific goals for building brand awareness and social media profiles, drawing media attention and improving download and conversion rate from the product website. With Ethan’s guidance and support, his team has delivered results above and beyond our expectations and contributed any number of creative ideas to expand the scope of our typical PR activity. Ethan has been a pleasure to work with, always very flexible when presented with constantly shifting product release schedules and program priorities. I would highly recommend him to any organization seeking a reliable and productive resource for launching and publicizing technology products.Christine Follett, AMI
  • Lightspeed is unlike any agency I’ve worked with before. All five members of my account team are at least a “director” level with years of relevant experience. There are no junior account executives acting as intermediaries. At any hour, I have a direct line to Lightspeed’s experts in media relations, industry relations, social media and content development. At first, I was frankly a bit skeptical about how this would work with so many new “direct reports,” but using tools like Slack, communications are seamless. Plus Ethan is an excellent orchestrator, not to mention a talented strategist and trusted advisor. Most importantly, the team proactively executes and delivers results.Daniel Heimlich, RightEye
  • Ethan and Lightspeed PR are a nimble, results-oriented team. They have been so flexible in dealing with shifting timelines and projects, as is so often the case in the startup world. In my opinion they’ve proven to be on par with (or above!) larger, much more expensive firms in terms of expertise, connections and results. I would highly recommend their services to anyone.Aja Butler George, Foko Retail
