About Method

Method’s exceptional ability to garner accolades for its clients, reflected in the firm’s meteoric rise and national recognition, has its roots in an extraordinary network of trusted relationships, a truly integrated perspective that has great content at its core, and a dogged focus on helping our clients and their customers succeed.

The communications catalyst for breakthrough brands and category leaders. We launched in 2010, signed our first Bay Area client in 2011 and, fueled by referrals from clients and VC firms, opened our San Francisco office in 2014. Today we offer a full spectrum of PR and integrated marketing/content to an expanding roster of clients, from pre-Series A to publicly traded global brands. We’re proud to be recognized as one of the most sought after PR agencies in the U.S.

Relationships. Resourcefulness. Results. Our core values summarize our approach to client work. Whether your goals are transactional (getting consumers to download and use an app or getting small businesses to sign up for a particular service) or more qualitative (increasing understanding of the company’s value proposition prior to setting off toward an IPO or simply striving to increase your share of voice), we work to design a strategic, customized program that supports them.

It’s a paid-earned-shared owned (PESO) world. In today’s world, paid, earned, shared and owned media not only  coexist but support, reinforce, and amplify each other.  While media share of voice is critical (and top of mind with many of our clients), our approach spans all these areas.

Solutions

Message Development

What exactly do you do? Why is the world a better place because you’re in it? We help you distill your story down to the essence to effectively position you in the market.

Spokesperson Development

Defining the message is just the first hurdle. We prepare your company representatives to convey their stories so their passion and message resonates with all forms of media.

Media and Analyst Relations

There’s a reason relationships is one of our core values - they’re the backbone of how we operate. We follow reporters closely and pay attention to their evolving interests, and tailor our approach accordingly, ensuring your story is heard where it matters most. We can also help you identify the industry analysts and influencers important to your audiences and cultivate meaningful relationships that drive engagement and impact.

Thought Leadership

Strong, insightful perspectives cut through the chatter. We build platforms to help executives and companies start, shape, and own conversations.

Content and Design

At Method, we believe fervently in the power of good writing. That’s why we’ve built an in-house staff of professional content specialists — trained journalists, ex-journalists, card-carrying members of POEM (the Professional Organization of English Majors) — and assign one to each account, so that you have a skilled writer embedded in your client work who understands your business and goals, and can translate that into compelling prose for different audiences as appropriate. When words just aren’t enough, our skilled designer can bring a visual approach to your narrative to align with your brand guidelines and company objectives.

Integrated & Social

It’s a PESO world. We build and grow your social communities, speaking to your audience where they’re tuned in most, and help your executives build their profiles through smart social strategies. Our integrated approach to the work we do means that no matter where your content begins, it ends up where it needs to be to make the most impact on your share of voice, visibility, thought leadership, and bottom line.

Crisis

Stuff happens. We get it. We help you plan and execute how to get your message across during those critical moments.
