Prompt Launches Intensive 90-Day Product Launch Coaching for Tech Startups and In-House PR Teams

Prompt PR has launched a new intensive coaching program to support tech entrepreneurs and tech marketers launching new products, services or applications, or looking to reinvigorate and further PR results for existing products.

The program, called Blast Off!, is designed for both North American and European technology companies that are building growth to gain profitability, market traction or obtain external capital - but either don’t have the funds to appoint a retained external PR or media agency, or want to keep PR execution in-house and are looking to re-energize their PR plan with new ideas, explore different tactics and test new ways to engage with target audiences.

“We frequently work with startups on short PR projects and have several retained programs designed for early-stage companies. We work with them to deliver traction, visibility, increased sales and to achieve their next stage of growth,” said Hazel Butters, CEO, Prompt PR. “But we’re frequently approached by entrepreneurs that are seeking the guidance and consultancy of a senior PR team to launch new products, services or apps, but don’t have funds available. Or by more established companies that don’t want to outsource PR to an external team and have internal team resources but want to re-energize their PR plan with new ideas, updates on what is happening with their target press and audiences, and to grow their team’s skill sets. So we designed this program to share our methodologies, templates, and real-world expert advice to drive press engagement and visibility. With consistent coaching, tech companies will gain strong ROI on spend, create best processes to drive PR, and maximize the publicity impact of launches.”

The intensive 90-day program includes:

  • PR planning – setting objectives and goals for a product, service or app
  • Launching a product – the dos and don’ts
  • Re-gaining PR momentum for established products and services
  • How to be clear on the right messaging
  • Identifying relevant influencer audiences
  • Targeting the right journalists
  • Creating compelling news and using news to increase the visibility of a product
  • Writing a great press release
  • Sharing and distributing news – the positives and the pitfalls
  • Story development and linking it to the sales process
  • Establishing thought leadership – why, what and where
  • Creating proofpoints that reinforce, motivate and sell
  • Tying social media to PR
  • Influence-based marketing
  • Thinking global –launching from Paris, Texas compared to Paris, France

Startups and entrepreneurs keen to discuss the program can email [email protected] or complete the inquiry form at www.prompt-pr.com/tech-pr-coaching-program-launch/

DevOps is under attack because developers don’t want to mess with infrastructure. They will happily own their code into production, but want to use platforms instead of raw automation. That’s changing the landscape that we understand as DevOps with both architecture concepts (CloudNative) and process redefinition (SRE). Rob Hirschfeld’s recent work in Kubernetes operations has led to the conclusion that containers and related platforms have changed the way we should be thinking about DevOps and...

The only way to get CICD to work in a highly secure environment takes collaboration, patience and persistence. Building CICD in the cloud requires rigorous ar...
Companies are harnessing data in ways we once associated with science fiction. Analysts have access to a plethora of visualization and reporting tools, but considering the vast amount of data businesses collect and limitations of CPUs, end users are forced to design their structures and systems with limitations. Until now. As the cloud toolkit to analyze data has evolved, GPUs have stepped in to massively parallel SQL, visualization and machine learning.

To get the most out of their data, successful companies are not focusing on queries and data lakes, they are actively integrating analytics into their operations with a data-first application development approach. Real-time adjustments to improve revenues, reduce costs, or mitigate risk rely on applications that minimize latency on a variety of data sources. In his session at @BigDataExpo, Jack Norris, Senior Vice President, Data and Applications at MapR Technologies, reviewed best practices to ...
Widespread fragmentation is stalling the growth of the IIoT and making it difficult for partners to work together.

Enterprises are adopting Kubernetes to accelerate the development and the delivery of cloud-native applications. However, sharing a Kubernetes cluster between members of the same team can be challenging. And, sharing clusters across multiple teams is even harder. Kubernetes offers several constructs to help implement segmentation and isolation. However, these primitives can be complex to understand and apply. As a result, it’s becoming common for enterprises to end up with several clusters. Thi...
