Today, AgencyPost, a national media outlet owned by Hubspot, recognized Write2Market as among the Top 10 Agencies for Start Ups in the country. Public relations agencies as well as ad agencies were considered.
As an entrepreneur, I looked at the others nine public relations and marketing agencies recognized, and was immediately humbled. We’re in some great company, alongside firms like Launch Squad in San Francisco, the agency that launched Evernote, and Condensed in New York, the PR agency that launched Tough Mudder.
What’s a “Top 10 Public Relations Agency” like?
Thanks to Hubspot’s AgencyPost, this is the first time we’ve been able to profile Write2Market with similar agencies that care so much about some of the same things we do! Super fun for us. Write2Market is the only agency representing the two cities where we have offices—Atlanta and Austin.
Some trends we spot in the“toolkit” of a nationally recognized start up public relations agency:
- Team spirit and collaboration
- Cash consciousness/efficiency
- A “doer” stance
- A focus on “usable metrics”
- Straight talk—providing the founding team both mirror and counsel
- MVP skillset—agencies that do several things from design to content
- Love of the game
Reading between the lines in the coverage Hubspot’s AgencyPost provided all ten of the best agencies for start ups, it seems to take all of this to create a powerful start up agency.
Picking a startup agency in Silicon Valley, New York or Atlanta?
Silicon Valley fielded the most Top 10 marketing or public relations agencies for start ups—LaunchSquad, Odysseus Arms, and Onboardly.
New York had two—Avec and Awesome.
Atlanta had one–us. I see this recognition for Write2Market as yet another strong sign of the growing Southeast start up culture scaling. I’m stoked for what that says about our entrepreneurial communities in Atlanta, Austin, and our surrounds. We’ve got lots of great agencies here and one of the strongest digital marketing cultures in the world.

Finally, to our inspiring start up clients—companies like CallRail and InfoTycoon in Atlanta, redpepper and GraphStory and Variable Technologies in Tennessee, Channel Intelligence in Florida, MVG in Paris and so many more in the last 10 years—thank you for taking Write2Market with you in your journey toward industry leadership. It’s a privilege.Your companies are the fuel for the future and inspire our creativity. You are the force behind this honor as a Top 10 Agency.
We are thrilled to have a role on the teams creating the tomorrow’s headlines. I’m thankful to AgencyPost for recognizing our work together.
