We never wait
for the news.
House Communications is a boutique public relations agency that builds content and drives brand awareness, perception, and behavior. We design strategic communications programs for fast-growth companies and industry disruptors in emerging markets. With both agency and in-house experience, we operate as your “in-House team” and never hand off the account to junior team members which happens at large agencies. We’ve purposely remained nimble and aggressive. We are creative, tenacious, and, almost without fail, disruptive.
Busy founders, CEOs, and marketing directors have better things to do than hand-feed their PR agency. We don’t need announcements to amplify your message. Instead, we get into the fabric of the business, find the stories that will make a difference, and push those stories to the channels that are most effective.
Our programs elevate brand awareness, build industry credibility, and drive sales. We spark interest and retain the attention of the customers that matter most through proactive and reactive outreach daily, customizing pitches for individual reporters to wedge into trends, issues, and storylines that are relevant to both the news cycle as well as our clients’ positioning in the market.
We’ve worked extensively with fast-growth B2B companies for more than a decade across a broad range of sectors including jobs and staffing, financial services, insurance, telco, marketing, big data, mobile, business intelligence, retail, and restaurants among others.
